Google Now Wallpapers for Your Android Device

It’s with no doubt that Google has done a remarkable job with its design of Google Now. The gorgeous aesthetic philosophy they’ve incorporated has been replicated in numerous apps, themes, and mods that can be found throughout the XDA forums, and remains a testament of Google’s and XDA members’ eyes for beauty. So it is with no wonder that a live wallpaper will manifest from this, to continually please our eyes wherever and whenever.

Developed by XDA Forum Member Svarion, GoogleNowWallpaper presents a collection of 11 live wallpapers comprised of images extracted straight from Google Now. Featuring cities such as London, San Francisco, and New York, the live wallpapers much like Google Now mirror what is outside your window by cycling through dawn, day, dusk, and night. They also offer customizable settings in regards to the times of these phases.

The other excellent aspect with this concept is that despite being a live wallpaper, the wallpaper won’t drain as much battery as other conventional live wallpapers. This is because these images are static, and are triggered to changed only at the pre-determined times. Thus, they are not ‘active’, so to speak, during every second of every minute of every hour of every day.

Two versions of GoogleNowWallpaper are available: a 960 x 800 version and a version supporting up to 1440 x 1280. Svarion has made both of these versions free and compatible with Android versions 2.2 and up, so make sure to head over to the original thread for more details and downloads.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
