Create your Own Live Wallpaper with Ownskin UGC
If you’re a fan of Live Wallpaper and want to be able to create your own, Ownskin UGC goes some way to helping you do that.
Developed by XDA forum member madwolfchin, Ownskin UGC is a tool that let’s you create your own Android Live Wallpaper!
Ownskin provides a few examples with customisable widgets that sit in the Wallpaper. Examples include a wallpaper with a compass set in, and what looks like a normal background with a clock on the wall, that turns out to tell the actual time. Other widgets include a battery indicator that charges when your Android device is plugged into power.
Users can customise backgrounds and create their own widgets. Currently, widgets cannot connect to the internet but madwolfskin has mentioned that this will be implemented in the next update.
For more information, check out the video in the application thread. Ownskin UGC is not yet available in the Market but is available to download from the forum thread.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
