In one of our latest Android projects, we wanted to have a transparent wallpaper overlaid on top of the standard Android home screen. We found a few references online showing how this could be done, but many were incomplete and others required third party apps.

After doing some research into what it would take to do this ourselves, we decided to create our own Android app that would allow users to easily set a moving wallpaper on their device.

What is moving wallpaper?

Moving wallpaper is a type of wallpaper that moves around on your screen. This can be done in a number of ways, but often it will use a parallax effect to create the illusion of depth.

Why use moving wallpaper?

There are a few reasons why you might want to use moving wallpaper on your Android device. Perhaps you want to add some extra flair to your device, or maybe you find that it helps you focus or stay productive.

Whatever the reason, moving wallpaper can be a fun and interesting way to customize your device.

How to set up moving wallpaper on Android

If you want to set up moving wallpaper on your Android device, there are a few steps you need to take.

First, you’ll need to download and install our Android app, which can be found on the Google Play Store.

Once you have installed the app, open it and select the “Moving Wallpaper” tab. Here, you will see a list of all the moving wallpapers that are available.

To set a moving wallpaper, select it and then press the “Set Wallpaper” button. The app will ask for permission to modify your home screen, so press “OK” to continue.

The wallpaper will now be set and will start moving on your device. You can adjust the speed and direction of the wallpaper by using the “Speed” and “Angle” options.

You can also pause or resume the wallpaper movement by pressing the “Pause Wallpaper” or “Resume Wallpaper” buttons.

How bad do you want it wallpaper

There is no question that wallpaper is an important part of the interior design process. It can be used to add color, pattern and visual interest to a room, and it can also help to define the space.

However, not all wallpaper is created equal. In fact, some wallpaper can be downright terrible. So how do you know if you are getting bad wallpaper?

Types of moving wallpaper

There are a few different types of moving wallpaper that you can use on your Android device. Here are a few of the most common ones.

  • 3D Wallpaper: 3D wallpaper is one of the most popular types of moving wallpaper. It uses a parallax effect to create the illusion of depth, giving your home screen a 3D look.
  • Live Wallpaper: Live wallpapers are unique because they don’t actually change the images on your home screen. Instead, they use an animation loop to create the illusion of movement.
  • Visualization: Visualization moving wallpaper creates a beautiful moving image that is made up of flowing lines and shapes. This type of wallpaper is perfect for relaxation and meditation.

How to pick the best moving wallpaper

Not all moving wallpapers are created equal. So how do you pick the best one for your device? Here are a few tips.

Choose a wallpaper that is in tune with your personality: If you want your device to reflect your personality, then choose a wallpaper that is in line with your taste. If you are a creative person, then try a 3D or live wallpaper. If you are more of a relaxed person, then try a visualization wallpaper.

Choose a wallpaper that is in tune with your mood: If you are feeling down, then try a dark and brooding 3D wallpaper. If you are feeling energetic, then try a live wallpaper with lots of movement.

How to install your first piece of moving wallpaper on Android

If you have never used a moving wallpaper before, then the good news is that it’s really easy to set up. In fact, if you can use a regular wallpaper on your device, then you will have no problem setting up a moving wallpaper. Here are some tips to help get you started.


Most people are not interested in creating their own moving wallpaper, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an incredibly rewarding process. If you are looking for a fun project to sink your teeth into over the summer, then consider transferring your favorite photos or images onto a 3D wall paper. It can make for a great DIY decoration piece when friends visit.
