The upper hand that Android has over the other systems is the range of customizations. From attractive live wallpapers to refreshing icons packs – you have it all. What’s more, you can even pull off an entirely a new look with the help of a few apps. But beyond the above elements, how about including a GIF as a wallpaper? Sounds interesting, right?
This nifty app which goes by the name of LoopWall offers just that. It lets you have GIFs in your home screen but without the jarring cut of GIFs. So let’s dive straight in and have a look at this awesome app.
Loopwall, as suggestive of its name, lets you have cinemagraph GIFs as wallpapers. These GIFs give the impression of slow motion, similar to water cascading down a waterfall or waves gently lapping by the shoreline. The GIFs are arranged neatly into categories like Architecture, food, space, etc.
These wallpapers are an absolute delight. There’s a collection of a sizzling creme Brulee in the food category or shiny particles levitating in the foreground.
The wallpapers can be customized to fit into the phone’s display, or you can have to have a colored background for the image. The color can be picked up from the color picker or the from the recommended color.
The setup process is quite simple, all you have to do select the GIF and make it fit the display. The plus and minus buttons should do the trick. One more customization option is to use the forward and back button to increase or decrease the speed of the animation.
Once everything’s been done, a tap on the tick button will do the trick. Drag the cinemagraph to fit the screen and bam, you are done.
Now get ready to enjoy the liveliness of the impressive GIFs. The best thing about these wallpapers is that they are better than live wallpapers. Plus you get something unique to keep in your device. If you ask me, It’s a win-win situation.
