Google Creative Lab has released a few apps thus far that are described as "Android Experiments." Apps like Lip Swap were just for fun, but Meter is theoretically useful, and that's not something you can usually say about a live wallpaper. Meter shows you your signal strength, notification count, and battery life using colorful geometric shapes.

Muzei Updated To Version 2.0 With Android Wear Watch Face, Design Tweaks, And More

 

Roman Nurik's Muzei, the live wallpaper that puts art (or any other collection of images) front and center on your home screen, got a big update to version 2.0 today.

The most noticeable changes are in the app's interface, which has been updated for Lollipop. The design stays true to the experience many users are already familiar with, but adds some new touches, including a revised launcher icon, and a FAB for adding images to the "my photos" category.

Muzei has also added a slider for saturation in its advanced settings menu, an option to remove effects on the lock screen, improved panning for wide images, some bug fixes, and some awesome Android Wear integration including a watch face (contributed by Ian Lake) and better notifications when new artwork appears.

Asus Follows Up MyWater Live Wallpaper With MyOcean (AKA MyWater 2)

When some one has taken the time to design a live wallpaper that can semi-convincingly replicate the look of ice cubes floating in artificial water, you just don't let that time and experience go to waste. You channel it into another project. So Asus is rebooting its MyWater live wallpaper with a sequel, MyOcean.

Update: Like MyWater before it, MyOcean was previously available exclusively to Asus devices. Now it's available to others in the Play Store.

Instead of ice cubes, this time users can watch a killer whale swim around in front of an island.

Asus has shaken the gimmick up this time around.

Lucky for them, Asus has now released the animated MyWater wallpaper into the Play Store and opened it up to competing electronics.

[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of February 2014

It's been a busy month in the Android app world, particularly if you want useful tools or visual tweaks. There's one big app that we're not featuring in this roundup: the Google Now Launcher, AKA the Google Experience Launcher. We're omitting it from the main list because it's only compatible with Nexus and GPE devices - even the few standard Android devices that have been upgraded to KitKat can't play with it unmodified.

[New App] Taskei Gives Muzei The Tasker Treatment, Provides Greater Control Over Which Wallpapers You See And When

DashClock's developer released Muzei earlier this month, an attractive live wallpaper app that takes pictures, blurs them, and puts them on your homescreen. By default, you can choose from your own images or opt to have a different work of art serve as your background each day, but shortly after release, a ton of extensions became available for Muzei that you can use to keep your background fresh in any number of ways. It even works with AllCast. Now Taskei is here to extend your options even further.

With Taskei, you can have your device only load up new wallpapers from select sources when it's on WiFi, show album art as your background when listening to music (similar to the Nexus 5's lockscreen), shake your phone to shift through backgrounds, activate different extensions depending on your location or the time of day, and more.

Roman Nurik Of DashClock Fame Releases New Live Wallpaper Called Muzei

Perhaps you've heard of a little app called DashClock? The creator of that mega-versatile widget has just released a new app, but this time it's less utilitarian. Muzei Live Wallpaper takes pretty pictures, adds some Gaussian blur, and slaps them on your home screen.

Each day the app will get a new piece of art to serve as the base of the background. You can go into the Muzei app to see the piece in more detail (in immersive mode), or double tap on the home screen to clear the blur effect for a few seconds. If the art isn't doing it for you, there is also support for random or specific images from your gallery.
