One day we are in a mood, went to a gallery on our phone or surfed through a site, selected the picture we liked, adjusted, and set it as our wallpaper. This is a story of each one of us with our phones. So here are some best live wallpaper apps for Android users.
Wallpapers are the digital images used as a background for screens of electronic devices that were first introduced by X Windows System. Only a few solid or simple color patterned images were used as wallpaper only for desktops in the 80s while Microsoft was the first to allow users to customize their desktop’s wallpaper in the 90s. As with the advent of smartphones and several modified versions of PCs, more the wallpaper got modified.
While previously the images used for wallpaper were always supposedly static, just a few years recently software tech companies started launching “live wallpaper ” bringing the era of wallpaper to a whole new height. Live wallpapers are purely animated 2D and 3D images. Unlike ordinary wallpaper, Live wallpaper is dynamic meaning the image will have sort of repeated motions on each interaction with the user and is available through various apps.
Several mobile operating systems and desktop operating systems do support live wallpaper. However, they have their own limits to completely support any associated apps whereas Android is the only one that already has in-built support.
Here are the top 5 best live wallpaper apps for Android users:
