Customization is the heart of Android. This is the only reason why I was gravitated towards the Android platform. The free live wallpaper apps for Android are a solid proof of the versatility of the platform we all love. Android Live wallpapers add more flare to the static background of our android phones. Although they can take a little more resources to run, the outcome is well worth.
Back in the old days, Sony made Java based phones. They provided the option of setting GIFs as wallpapers. I was hooked to moving backgrounds from then on. Now with the help of these best and free live wallpaper apps for Android, my smartphone looks as unique as it can get. Surly if you have a good looking live wallpaper on phone, heads would most definitely turn.
Note: The live wallpapers for Android featured in the list were tested on a Galaxy Note III smartphone. The live wallpapers performed fine and no problems were faced during testing. The list is no particular order. I understand that there will be more amazing live wallpapers on the Google Play Store, these are the ones which captured my attention. This list will be updated regularly and new wallpapers will be added in it. If your favourite live wallpaper is not on the list, give me a shout and it will be added…eventually.
Muzei Live Wallpaper
If you are a fan of great artwork, this free wallpaper app will fast become your favorite. I came across this app when my oil painting teacher showed me his phone. The app takes recognized pieces of art and morphs them into live wallpapers.
The app automatically changes the wallpapers daily, so there is always something new to see. The artwork is not essentially “live” but clever visual effects make it seem so. This is one of the most plain and yet strikingly beautiful wallpaper apps ever.Show Downloads
Asus has been making waves in the smartphone department lately. Even I have pre-ordered the new Zen Phone 2 for myself (Always good to have a backup phone). I didn’t expect them to make a great looking live wallpaper app though.
LiveWater, as the name suggests is a live wallpaper all about water. The best thing is that you can somewhat customize the effects to your liking. This is a live wallpaper app which looks amazing on tablets.Show Downloads
Rain Live Wallpaper
Rain is lovely, especially if you live in a warm country. Rain Live Wallpaper is also lovely, especially if you use boring static images as your wallpaper. Have you ever noticed the rain drops sticking to your windows? This wallpaper aims to simulate that phenomenon.
Sometime when the temperature inside is right, the windows also become foggy, the app can do that too. The best part is, you can use your own images in the background too. I recommend the free wallpaper apps for your static image needs.Show Downloads
Paperland Live Wallpaper
Paperland is one of my personal favourite among the free live wallpaper apps for Android list. The wallpaper is nothing amazing visually but it is really light on resources and shows a serine beauty.
The wallpaper gives you the view of a busy road and that’s about it. There is something so alluring about looking at your smartphone and witnessing a miniature world within. Thankfully the wallpaper is also customizable and comes with some great options.Show Downloads
Want to look at a sweeping landscape without using the best travel apps for Android? You can download this wallpaper and take a look at a minimalistic mountain view.
This live wallpaper app for Android has very similar design than the previous app in the list. However while Paperland shows us an urban environment, this app opts for a rural one. The colors are so vibrant and lively that you will fall in love in a short while.Show Downloads
If you have kids in your home or you are a kid yourself, this live wallpaper is a must have. The cute looking fluff ball is an interactive pet living on your home screen. However you have to be aware that the ball makes sounds when tapped on.
So if you are taking a class or giving a billion dollar presentation, this wallpaper might not suit you. There are a few customization options available but they are not that deep.Show Downloads
When mild and normal live wallpapers can’t do the job, you need Potus 3012. When you are living in the fast lane, you need Potus 3012. When times call for something fast and furious, you need POTUS 3012 (cue guitar riff).
This is one hell of a flamboyant and flashy live wallpaper ever. I have never seen something so retro and neon in my life. This live wallpaper is recommended for the best 3D Launcher on Android. Now overload your senses with 3D awesomeness.Show Downloads
Some apps have confusing names. Some come with unrecognizable and intangible ones. But this app here, is exactly what the name suggest. This is one of the very few apps left which literally provides what the name says.
This live wallpaper is an analogue clock and nothing more. You may think, “Dude, it must allow me to change the background right?” Nope, it won’t sir/mam…no it won’t. But hey, many people like plain things, so this one is for them.Show Downloads
Circulux is the only app in the free live wallpaper apps for Android list which combines art with design. The rotating circles give off a sense of style, sophistication and symmetry. The fact that the app allows you to customize almost every aspect of the live wallpaper makes it one of the best ones around.
Although you will need to purchase additional designs, the free ones are just as good. You will have a great looking Android in no time at all, especially if you combine this with the lightest launcher on Android.Show Downloads
This is not a fully “live” wallpaper per say but it is nonetheless very intriguing. When you first set the wallpaper you will notice that the image essentially remains static. The preview window also shows a static image and no matter what you do it doesn’t react.
But after you set the wallpaper and scroll through home screens you will notice the change in light. This effect is subtle and gives a feeling of actually scrolling through physical sheets of crumpled paper.Show Downloads
