Android may be all about customization, but Android Auto hasn't allowed much room for self-expression since its launch. That looks to be changing soon, as a recent teardown of the Android Auto app indicates that users might soon be able to choose from a selection of wallpapers to take homescreen theming to the next level.
For years now, OnePlus devices have enjoyed a signature homescreen look thanks to wallpapers created by Swedish artist Hampus Olsson. The designer started with the OnePlus 2 and has added his unique blend of abstract paint-like wallpapers to each device released by the company since. He also worked on Paranoid Android, and has a big portfolio of artwork for smartphones. Now, he's released his official wallpaper app on the Play Store.
Even though they're technically "backgrounds," wallpapers are an intricate part of our smartphone and a unique way for us to show our personality. They adorn our homescreens, greet us each time we unlock our phones, and try to stay hidden while still being enjoyable. Some of us like nothing but a black screen full of widgets and apps, others prefer a gradient or pattern to add a touch of color, and some like simple graphics while others use photographs. The least we could say is that wallpaper choice is a very personal one.
Searching for the perfect wallpaper can be a daunting task, especially if you don't know where to start.
