Coloring Screen App Brings New Way to Customize Home Screens
There are a few ways users can customize their wallpapers. They can, of course, change their wallpaper and they can also use live wallpapers. Some custom ROMs even have the option of having no wallpaper, giving them a black, minimalist background. There’s a new way to add some customization to your background by adding filters to it without changing it. It can help make a certain wallpaper look just right, or help you change the color entirely if you change themes.
The app is called Coloring Screen, and it was posted to XDA by Senior Member exisapps. Essentially, the application allows users to change the wallpapers in a variety of ways. As mentioned, it can be used to change the colors of the wallpaper you already have or help customize one to make it just right. A full list of the features include:
Choose from more than 20 stylish, cool and professional color effects and photo filters including day/night effects, red, green, blue, yellow, orange, cold and warm filters, autumn, winter, spring and summer adjustments, classic black&white, sepia, neon and more!
Manually control brightness, contrast and saturation of your screen. Easily change colors to your favorite by applying color blend. Change hue, add lighting/glow effects, use overlay or phoenix.
It’s considered a live wallpaper since the app runs in the background to keep the effects going, but the app developers claim that it takes virtually no system resources so even older devices can still use it. For more details, check out the original thread.
