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

Milestones:
-Automatic changing in intervals

You can find more information in the application thread.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
