Live wallpaper brings iOS7-like background effects on Android

0. phoneArena 31 Jul 2013, 03:10 posted on

This was bound to happen sooner or later. The fancy parallax wallpaper effects – one of the many new features in iOS 7 – can be enjoyed on Android as well thanks to this live wallpaper application. Appropriately named "3D Parallax Background", the software gently pans the background image depending on which direction the smartphone or tablet is tilted, thus creating the illusion of depth...

apple hate comments in 3...2....1...

I expected that. there's always a bunch of immature baboons who have no sense of being rational infiltrating P.A Posts relating to apple or Android.. possibly windows phone.
tell me, what's the point of saying "FROFLROOFLFLFLFILFFLOLOLOOOL Apple suksssss! Android ownzzz" or "WOW REVOLUTIONARY! (Old joke, bob.)"? I don't see How you twats would gain from flaming companies. I used androids and iDevices and I must say both are really good. if only someone heroic and brave enough to obliterate bIased rage nerds and geeks off of this website...

Last week you were on the other side of the fence, in late August you'll be back loving iOS. This is why no one takes you serious...Itgarett

Kinda seems like you're inviting it to happen now though...

I mean, yours is the first comment and it's not even about the article. It's about comments that haven't/hadn't even occurred yet. Ever heard the term: self-fulfilling prophecy?

Ya, Dude. These people can be divided in 3 categories :-
1) Apple fan - "Android is great but I love iOS"
2) Android fan - "iOS is great but I love Android"
3) Idiots - "Apple sucks, BLA BLA Android is great / Android is copy, Apple is the real one And BLA BLA BLA...."

BTW good that apple is back into the game......the new ios look shows that cupertino changed their direction. I'm looking forward to what innovations they will make (no sarcasm intended).
BTW here's something for the people who thinks tremendously high specs on a phone is everything- specs are like clothes. Branded clothes. for you to show off. Software and OS is like a person's character- what you are really made off. ;)

Normally I would not pay for a wallpaper, but... does look pretty cool for only $0.99. I'll give it some time out on the Play Store first though to see if customer comments confirm or deny it's effect on battery life.

Funny how the first comment is about how Android Fans are going come in and make bashing comments on Apple. But, yet, only bashing so far has been from Apple fans. One saying how Android fans are just show offs and Apple user have a stand out character. Another one calling Android user "simpletons" cause he just made his opinion about how he does not like Apple products known. There is a word for this....

As far the post, it is misleading in a way. It claims that Android can now have an iOS7 like wallpaper. Which is just simply not true. The Playstore has had, for many year, a bunch of live wallpaper to choose from. Many different effect and styles. The truth of the matter, it would be correct to say that iOS can finally have a limited version of live wallpaper already found in Android.

In no way am I trying to "bash" Apple or their users. These are just the facts. I don't care for Apple, which is why I don't support the company. But, I care even less what someone else choose to spend their money on. Use what you want.

Correct me if I am wrong but this type of wall paper was available for years. I remember using them on my Motorola Atrix ( which but the way also included a fingerprint sensor). So I can't see how the writer here is claiming that the ios effect has finally come to Android?

I bought the wallpaper. The video is overpromising. Panning has lags which ruins the 3d effect. Im using an S4. Asked for a refund.

Umm... yeh 3d image lwp been out since last year(maybe longer) and does the same thing Nick T. Before io7. Nice way to start a fan war.

Type in " 3d gyro" "gyro" "3d lwp" etc. any order in the play store and see how far all this really goes back. Opotech does a great job and its free
