There are plenty of presets too, so it’s fun to experiment with. One particularly cool thing is what’s called the. This is where the soft drink tilts with the way you move your Android gadget.

The nature of the wallpaper itself is really original. I likewise like the method it’s bright and heavily customisable and there are various interactive things you can do to the wallpaper.

You’ve to bear in mind however, you will not be using the menu system too much once you’ve actually set the wallpaper the way you like it.
