* configurable time period
* google now card UI included
* runs at device startup
* no battery drain!! (it's not a live wallpaper)

Dude, I have to say, this is the COOLEST wallpaper I've EVER HAD!
I LOVE the google now theme, and the fact that the wallpaper changes according to the time of day makes it even better! You're awesome man!

Hey I think there's an issue with the time changer. Whatever timings I select for dusk, Dawn etc, it always stays the same.

For suggestions, maybe we could be able to set the way that time is displayed (24 Hour Clock or 12 Hour Clock) or just auto detect which one the android system is using. I can see by your screen shots that you use 24 hour :)

Also, Holo G-Now Cards UI for Gingerbread is broken, check the screens below

when you change this setting, if you go back to main screen it should show a
popup with next wallpaper change.. is it correct? or please tell me your values so i can find the issue :)





definitely a resolution bug, if i remember correctly Nexus 7 wallpapers are 1280x1600 so i should resize it

thanks for your suggestion, i was thinking to use 24hour format because is easier to use while writing code but it's not a problem to change the user interface :) and about the UI I've used a library that replicates google card ui so i should investigate and solve this bug.. or contact the library developer
