Album art live wallpaper shows how bad your musical taste is

Once again the developers at AndroidGamer have an awesome new Live Wallpaper to share with us.  You might remember their last jewel, Advanced Map Live Wallpaper, from when we had a look at it last month.  Well, Album Art live wallpaper is just as original!  The application scans your music, and pulls out the album art to create a collage of sorts as your wallpaper.  It's chock full of settings, and according to the developers the features include:

  • Variable cover size
  • Shuffle
  • Automatic refresh
  • Battery friendly
  • Smooth scrolling
  • LauncherPro support

We've been using it for a bit now and are having a tad of trouble getting it to recognize our collection of Hungarian folk tunes, so your mileage may vary.

You can get Album Art live wallpaper  on the Android Market for 99 cents, or there's a demo version for free! (Live wallpapers only work with Android 2.1 and higher!)

Like ton's of other apps, this one comes from the minds and hearts of the guys over at Xda-Developers, and you can check out the official support thread HERE.  Links and more pics after the break.  Thanks David!

  • That'd be nice if i actually bought my music, i'd just have a blank screen lol
  • Just scanned the barcode on my Droid and nothing came back. Sad, too... this looks cool.
  • I did a manual search as well on my Droid and nothing. I commented on the xda-developers site and let them know as much. Hopefully I can try it soon, it does look very cool.
  • Are you guys using a 2.2 ROM? If so, that's why you aren't seeing it.
  • Nope. Stock 2.1. I have yet to take the plunge into rootsville.
  • He posted the apk to the demo version over here (
  • I am running stock as well.
  • Sweet....
  • very Zune Desk top.
  • Half my music lost the cover art in sync what's the best way you guys know of to get it back.
  • I think MixZing will look it up and replace it for you, but i haven't gotten around to it yet
  • Mp3tag is a free software solution with the option to donate to the developer. You will have to find the cover art yourself. It worked great for me but MixZing sounds like a great app too.
  • This is the new shit.
    Brownish point for who ever knows what album that is from without looking
  • I would love to buy it, but it is in English pounds. My credit card on file only accepts USD on the market.
  • I use the app, Album Art Grabber
  • Well this looks great and all but I can't pull up the app from the market using the links or by searching. Using 2.1 Droid.
