Pros & Cons:

Pros

  • Watch your photos bounce, turn and change in 3D area on your homescreen background!
  • Many settings to tweak!

Cons

  • Novelty live wallpaper app, mightn’t fit everyone’s taste.

Features:

3D Photo Live Wallpaper puts your images in 3D shapes that morph from cubes to spheres and back, then either drift them or bounce them off each various other on your homescreen. You can communicate with the shapes too. One tap in an open area on your screen scatters the photo forms. Two taps toggles the movement or freezes it. Three taps cycles with among 4 preset background images, clouds, beach, hillside or plain black background. When made it possible for in the settings menu, 4 taps take a screenshot of your homescreen and saves it to the ‘Downloads’ folder of your gadget (in my case it saved it to the root of the SD Card, so if you cannot discover it in Downloads, check there.) When you press and hold a shape for five seconds, it sets the active photo as the background. Nevertheless, I felt the squished and distorted image ought to have more visual polish and it looks rather bad. This function is the app’s technique of enabling you to technically use your own images in the background.

In the setups menu where you explore more modification, including:

  • Set number of shapes.
  • Select Gallery Directory site (this is an area in requirement of user experience polish, indicating you should’ve the ability to choose a gallery from a list instead of keying in something like this by hand ‘/ mnt/sdcard/Pictures’ non-tech folks won’t know that)
  • Set blurry background image (here is where the app falls short as it misses a chance to allow you to genuinely set your own background picture and still have the floating shapes atop it.)
  • Set whether the shapes collide or not.
  • Set picture size and speed.
  • Set borders and border colors.
  • If your battery drains or you discover the animations stutter you can toggle the frames per second under Power Usage.
  • Enable screen capture feature.
