Fun with Live Wallpapers

Post by InsaneAudioSupport6 » Fri May 05, 2017 2:19 pm

Changing the background is a great way to personalize our devices. Android phones have long featured animated backgrounds, known as Live Wallpapers. Many of them are beautiful and fun to look at, but folks tend to avoid them because they have a reputation of draining the phone battery. Not for us. Live Wallpapers work great with Insane Audio head units!

Customizing the wallpaper is quite simple. Just hold your finger on the background of the home screen, and choose Live Wallpapers. We ship all our Insane Audio units with stock Live Wallpapers pre-installed, so you can test some out now.

Of course, you'll want to get more from the Google Play Store. You can search for "live wallpapers" or "LWP". There's a lot of ugly, buggy or obnoxious wallpapers out there, and because the store is full of ones that are designed for small phones and big tablets, finding one that fits your Insane Audio unit and your own taste can take some time. Here's a few ideas you can try.

Water Garden

This is one of our favorites because fishing season has just begun here at Insane Audio new shop at June Lake, California. Tap on the water, and disturb the fish. Configure the pond as you wish, as most of the features are free to use.

Awesome Land

You really can't go wrong with nature themes. With colorful lighting, flying birds and floating particles, the Awesome Land wallpaper is gorgeous. While most of the settings are locked by the store, it does come with a pleasant winter theme too.


Ocean

For those who enjoy the ocean sunset, your Insane Audio unit can help you get there with this wallpaper. You'll feel like you're sitting at the beach listening to music because this wallpaper mixes the roar of the ocean along with your music!


Winter

We at Insane Audio love to play in the snow. Here's a wallpaper with endless snowflakes to keep you stoked during the winter. The animation is smooth, and you can customize the flakes as you wish.

BLW Music Visualizer
Image

You already have an amazing sound system with your Insane Audio head unit. Then why not get a good music visualizer dancing to the beat of your song? Now, there is one visualizer built into the Music app, but we don't really want it running in the foreground. How about a visualizer in the background? Just play the song and watch a beautiful spectrum analyzer on your home screen. Show the time and song title if you want. This wallpaper is highly customizable, and other visualizations are available for purchase too.

Plasma Flow

Want a trippy look? This psychadelic wallpaper flows with constanly changing colors. You can also change the LED backlight of your Insane Audio unit to cycle through different colors in the rainbow. Just go to System->Elements, and select the rainbow at the bottom right.

Galactic Core
Image

Intrigued by the cosmos? This 3D animation of a spiraling galaxy blends well with the frame of your Insane Audio unit. Don't forget to change the backlight of your unit to match the galaxy.

Paperland
Image

How about something for the kids? This wallpaper is easy on the eyes, as it slowly scrolls through a fun paper landscape that changes according to your local weather. You can purchase other scenes too and unlock other features.

Forest
Image

We at Insane Audio love our mountains. This wallpaper has an abstract look of the wilderness, and the scenery even changes according to your weather. The simplicity and minimal style of it is quite appealing with smooth and subtle animations.

Minima
Image

If you're the kind who easily gets distracted by moving objects, this one might be for you. This wallpaper has a static feel, but tapping on the screen gives you a nice visual feedback.

Ghost Skull
Image

Do you have a darker personality? Here's a creepy skull that fades in and out of the wallpaper, a subtle effect that could keep an unsuspecting passenger on edge.

Kustom Live Wallpaper
Image

Are you feeling creative? For those of you willing to spend some time placing images around and editing some movements, you can make your own Live Wallpaper using this powerful Android app all within your Insane Audio head unit! We can't possibly explain it all in this post, but you'll get sucked right in, fiddling with your own wallpaper inside your car.

Now there's a lot more wallpapers out there that also deserve attention. You'll also find a lot that don't. If you notice your wallpaper sputtering or slowing down your Insane Audio unit, then install a different one, but be sure to uninstall all the ones that you don't use anymore. You can either do that under Settings->Apps or you can drag the icon from the app drawer into the upper trash.

That's all for now. This is your Jeep and your Insane Audio head unit, so customize that wallpaper and make your head unit your own! If you think you found a wallpaper worth sharing, post a comment below.

Great writeup! Thanks for sharing. I just tried the water garden LWP and it's pretty darn cool. When you hit the screen the fish get scared and swim away. LOL. :D
