A few months ago, Alex Pasquarella posted some Google Now Inspired Wallpapers, and they were well-received on Reddit. Many suggested an app, and nowPaper has been available for a little while, but now we are very happy to introduce nowPaper 2.0. The app now includes the long-awaited Muzei extension which further allows users to set a specific Google Now style “setting/location,” and it will cycle to correspond with dawn, day, dusk and night. The app is paid, but for only $0.99 you are supporting the development and design that goes into creating this application and artwork.
I am the developer of the app. Alex and I can answer questions, concerns, and general feedback in this post.
For additional info regarding this long-awaited update, please see Alex's blog post.
Muzei’s intuitiveness coupled with the beauty and spirit of the Google Now Inspired Wallpapers brings great-looking and responsive home screens to your Android device. Muzei’s blurring and dimming effects help in increasing icon visibility, but of course these can be turned off in the Muzei settings if preferred.
The great thing about this family of wallpapers is that it is ever-expanding. Sure, these designs take quite a bit of time to make, but the only thing that will stop Alex from making new landscapes and new cities is a lack of community interest. This isn't the case right now, so you can always expect more locations as time goes on. I understand many of you were waiting for functionality like this, so we hope you all enjoy
As it stands now, the wallpapers are set to change at the following times (in Muzei):
- Dawn: 6:00 a.m.
- Day: 9:00 a.m.
- Dusk: 6:00 p.m.
- Night: 9:00 p.m.
