Use your Location as a Wallpaper with WMM
We have been using all sorts of wallpapers over the years: pictures, drawings, animations, weather wallpapers, but this is a first. XDA member MikyWoW has made an app that will pull your location using Google Maps and will place a map (from GoogleMaps) with your exact location as a wallpaper. A nifty feature is that the app will update itself, meaning that you can set an interval where the program will update this picture with your new location. It seems that the app works with WVGA, but it may work with other resolutions (QVGA has been confirmed to not work).
The program locates the coordinates without the use of GPS (like Google Maps) download the map from GoogleMaps and set as background.
- Supports Today, Sense / TouchFlo.
- Can change the map zoom and map type (4)
- You can view location marker
-Automatic changing in intervals
You can find more information in the application 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...
