Will yo permanently apply the gif from this app, I mean, everytime I close the apps the gif background gone, which is sad ;-; that I must open the app and reapply the gif everytime the phone off.... Please? Or, is there an option that I can set in settings on the phone, so that the gif will apply permanently attached? By the way, the app is awesome
This app really works. I loaded my own gif through it and just like I hoped, it worked perfectly. It's not glitchy, it runs smooth and never crashes or fails. Also it doesn't really affect my battery life. I have noticed no battery drain and everything functions as usual. My gif is my home screen wallpaper, so what is visible when not locked. I've gotten many compliments and people are always surprised it works! Great app! Fantastic job
Fantastic app that allows you to use a GIF as an animated home and/or lockscreen. Mybonly complaint is that on some GIFTS it seems to lower the frames or speed of some GIF's but other than that fantastic app.
This app is awesome! It doesn't have ads, I find it doesn't burn through power and the developer actually replies to issues and responds. I'd give this 6/5 stars if I could...
Extraordinary! Is the word I would use to describe this application. Simple process to re scale the gif, simple to choose the gif and set it, minimum battery usage and a cool application to keep any gif you want no matter what quality or size of the gif. Nice work, I am a android developer too and I can see the hard work clearlyπŸ’₯πŸ’―πŸ’― kudos to you and your team! Suggestion: can you add a functionality to keep two different gifs one for lock screen and one for the main screen?
It's simple and easy to use. Good app. It can read the gif that I made. It's just simple movements gif and small size. Not sure with big file size gif. It not stretching my gif. I will update later if I found any trouble. Thanks~
When it works it"s possibly worth 5 stars. However, every time I try to use it now, unfortumately, it stops working.
Authentically a good app... Please developers do not get greedy this is literally the best structure of an app I have seen on Google Play.
Hello would be a five star but I can't change it to just my lock screen and sorry if I'm to much but if you could make it so you can zoom
There's no option to save or make wallpaper I mean what I mean. The option to save or set the wallpaper isn't on screen.
Sad you cant make the bg color urslef on non-transparent bg gifs Also would be cool if we could adjust the speed of it too
Finally someone who doesn't just focus on money and bombarding you with ads, thank you so much, I have found some issues but I won't deduct stars for it, I know you are still working on it and other people have already posted the problems that I'm having.
Great App! Does what it's supposed to do. Downloaded and uninstalled 3 different apps before finishing this one. It's super easy to use, too! I would give it 5 Stars if it allowed you to set home screen and lock screen independently (meaning that it would be great to allow us to set one gif for the home screen and a different gif for the lock screen). Other than that, I am truly pleased. Thanks!
My phone looks so much better now with these cool gif wallpapers only one thing I'd love to see is the speed of the gif just now I put one wallpaper and it's too fast if you can add that function please it will be very nice of you! πŸ₯°
Doesn't ask for storage access. I can't select a gif to use because it never asks for storage access, which means it can't see my gifs!
Best one in Android Marketplace, just wish it had set as Lock Screen Only and / or set separate GIFs for Lock & Home Screens. Read some Developer comments which seem to indicate that these aren't possible. (UPDATE: Can't speak for all phones but Samsung Galaxy S10, Android v10, has the ability to add GIFs or even video. However when I try it then it automatically disables this app's Lock Screen GIF. No other app in Marketplace does it so again not Developer's fault)
Cool app, it smoothly runs the wallpaper. I just hope there's an option for lockscreen. I want another gif for my lockscreen and another one for my wallpaper. Hope you consider it in the future!
Looking for an app for this simple task, there are a few ad supported, in app purchase apps about, but this achieves what I desired without any of that.
Does exactly what it says with a super simple interface. Made a custom animation in another app and saved it as a gif, opened this app and selected it from the files and it works perfectly. Thank you.
The app is good. Just wish you can use different gifs. One for the home and one for the lock screen. But anyway its a good app.
This app is really great . But can you please make the change scale were able to do ones on our own so I can change the length and size to however I make it please
So close to exactly what I wanted!! I only want a lock screen gif, it gives the option for Home Screen, or Home and Lock Screen. If I choose Home&Lock, then change my home screen, all changes are reverted. Any chance this can get fixed? Edit: Android's fault. Damn shame. Really wanted that "windows XP loading screen" for my lock screen - but not perpetually in the background.
So the app does what it says. Makes my background a GiF image. Very easy to use, and simplisic. Also No ads or pop ups. Which is my reason for 4 stars. 5 stars would be if the app could have the GiFs change automaticly like a wallpaper changer. But thats just me. Im glad the developers are updating this app. Good jobs. Truly
It works, it would be better if it upscaled it for full screen, I had an app that did that before and it made the gif look hd instead of pixelated.
It doesn't even work on my phone. Or atleast i dont even know how it works. When i open i go through my gallery to find something as a wallpaper but it doesnt even work!
I would give it a 5 star however I really would like a "next" button when you select a gif since I spent 20 minutes trying to set a wallpaper only to figure out it's automatic.
This is such a amazing app. I was trying to put a haikyuu and it worked I love my wallpaper now please use this app!
Great app, I love so much, well I think this suggestion will be difficult, but can you add a setting where you can have different gif cover, like one for lockscreen and one for homescreen, sorry If it sounds demanding, but I just wanna say this is a great app.
The best app for gif to wallpaper ever! Can I know if it is possible to set 2 gif wallpaper (1 for home screen, 1 for lockscreen) at the same time?
Would be nice if there was a save feature that adds the Gif to your Home screen. Almost perfect too....
Perfect. Can run high resolution 100+mb gif files. @redwarp, It's kinda a personal file so I can't send it to you. But to give you an idea it's a video converted to gif then trimmed some of the frames for smooth transitions, 1080x2240 screen resolution for huawei p20 pro.
Every since the update my gif wallapers have been really slow compared to normal Almost as if it can't handle being a wallpaper which is weird cuz it was perfectly fine before I updated
honestly it's a really good app, all you have to do is choose a gif and bam, its your wallpaper for as long as you want it. no ads or anything, 1000/10 would recommend
Works exactly how it says it let's you set a gif as your wallpaper and if you want your lockscreen as well. However for me at least I'd appreciate being able to set more variety of background colors. I also seem to be having issues all of a sudden where after playing for about 5 seconds the gif will get staticy for a second then stutter and shake rather than a smooth animation. If that could be fixed easy 5 star.
The app itself works amazingly, My only concern is that the wallpaper goes back to default every few times the phone has been turned off for a long time, but other than that, I highly reccomend this app for having a GIF wallpaper
Stellar. Not just a solid app, it's one of the few (maybe the only) animated gif live wallpaper creators that doesn't have issues with "forgetting" your wallpaper when your phone cuts off. Can't say how many other, similar apps had that issue in the past, seemingly every one, but this one seems to retain the wallpaper regardless of whether you restart your phone or cut it off at night to save battery. App is easy to use with a clean GUI and minimal ad interference.
Can't load large gifs. Edit: Don't have your email info. I can tell you the gif in question is 260.2mb though. Edit: Sent.
Its so easy to use. I just wanna know how to put the same gif wallpaper in both homescreen and lockscreen? Coz I only have gif wallpaper at my homescreen
It keeps sayin that it cant launch wallpaper chooser and choose Gif as live wallpaper on homescreen and i have samsung My homescreen wallpaper chooser is Galaxy store which is suck Edit: I found the live wallpaper button i tapped the app but it wont play the gif it behaves like a .png or .jpeg not as .gif
Great app! It's free, open source and without ads or paid features! I would like to see ' Video Live Wallpaper' too. **Edit** okay... I would prefer video because of gif's limited amount of colors.. Is webp format supported here? **A other edit** I forgot about APNG.
Would be nice if landscape orientation rotated by 90Β° instead of zooming in to fill the screen's width, but it's better than not doing anything and just having black edges (like an app I had previously did). Besides that, works awesome. Really nice and simple menu for setting up the gif, besides finding where it was.
Very easy to use and it worked pefect for what I was trying to do. Very useful and satisfying app that got the job done. Thanks to the devs for this. Now I have a super dope animated wallpaper lol πŸ€πŸ€™
I really like this app it works just fine for me, my only problem is that I want it to just put the background on my lock screen but that's not an option.
Great app suddenly stopped transfering the highlighted gif to wallpaper and from that screen there was no set as button to make it turning the app useless. Tried deleting and reinstalling it several times cleaning the phone after each attempt. Finally a launch screen with a set as button appeared which after punching several times got the app working again. The phone needs that initial permission to work as this screen never reappears and without it if the app stops youre screwed! Wonderful now!
It definitely gets the job done. It doesn't seem to have any issues (Not yet, at least), and it not having any ads or anything and the lack of required permissions is the main reason I decided to give this one in particular a shot. This does exactly what it says it does, so if you have a certain animation you want as a background, I'd recommend this.
Excellent app. The language is clear and the UI is simple. It could use some more options like customizing screen placement, maybe a brightness slider. Also I like how quickly it applies the gif but does not confirm when the gif is applied. Perhaps something like a next or finish button could help the user understand their guf was applied. Great work regardless! The app is noninvasive and does it's job well.
I know this app works, but I don't think my phone allows me to make a gif as my background. I go to my wallpaper to put it on but instead of it asking me which screen I want to put it on, it takes me to my downloads instead. I really wanted to use this app, but my phone wont let me. Edit: It works now, and my phone now has style. Thank you developer for making such a great app.
I like it I would give it a 5 star if I had an option to put it on my lockscreen please add it to the app in the future...
Really underrated. No ads, great and easy features, and works better than many other apps I've tried. Very nicely done.
Can only select one gif, I would like to select more than one from my album and use it like a slideshow
I love this app so much and it's so good to use. I would give it five stars but sometimes the gif I'm using for the wallpaper disappears and I have to reset it back to the gif. This is amazing though, it's easy to use and lives up to the standards. Once the gif disappearing is fixed, I will definitely change my rating to a 5 stars!
Would it be possible to implement a way to have a different gif for the homescreen and lock screen? Otherwise, great app.
I had an issue and they resolved it now the whole gif us loading 5 stars for helping users and now i have no problems with the app
Accidentally deleted my review while trying to edit it hhh. I was looking for applications that allows custom live wallpapers from photos without the unnecessary battery eating, and I happened to stumble upon this app. The resize option was extremely convenient, and I love how it automatically saves after adjusting the wallpaper. Super underrated app. Take care dev, you deserve all the love and support.
Does what it does, but personally I wanted the gif to be possible on the lock screen. Good app either way.
I know this app works, but I don't think my phone allows me to make a gif as my background. I go to my wallpaper to put it on but instead of it asking me which screen I want to put it on, it takes me to my downloads instead. I really wanted to use this app, but my phone wont let me.
The gif plays very choppy/laggy and even stops for a few seconds instead of playing with fluidity like it does in my photos
Almost perfect.... I love the simple app and smooth experience. It's a flawless design. Unfortunately one can only change the home screen wallpaper, but I only wanted to change my lock screen ☹️ Add home screen functionality pleeeease! I will do 5 stars for sure
Edit: developer responded quick and gave me the scoop now I understand! With that being said I'll admit this is the better of the wallpaper apps out of the three I downloaded, btw dev if your reading this thanks for being cool πŸ˜…
It is functional. You can have animated .gif files as your wallpaper. You can adjust the ratio and position or rotate the image and fill the background with a color from the .gif file. Nkt much else in options. No ads which even for home page ads is a rare thing as now even your OS has ads and in-app purchase. I am not that impressed but given the environment an app like this exists it is one of the few good apps in a market saturated with 1 star trash. 5 🌟
Good app. But, if only it could be saved in gallery... I mean if I uninstall this app, the wallpaper is still in the gallery or phone. Sorry, I'm not good in english πŸ˜…
Besides a sort of grid-lock function for moving around the gif it's great. Can make a gif your background or lock screen
What da ya say? It works!! It's really easy and super simple. Took a few seconds to work out what to do, but I had it working it no time! I really recommend it, works like a charm! πŸ˜‰
Really good. Sticks and completely locks itself as the wallpaper so that it does not vanish after restarting your phone or powering it off. Automatically appears after unlocking my phone.
Love this app! It does exactly what it intends to do, although an idea that might be awesome is the ability to add multiple gifs, that way I can combine things to make it look awesome, thank you!
Absolutely great! Set it as my lock and homescreen since my phone allows that as an option and I love it! Thanks!
Can't use this for just lockscreen and the app somehow even prevents going intelligently around the issue, so it's not ideal. Would be amazing if u fixed it.
Really useful, I download a GIF from the internet and insert it in the App; it works properly, I think the app should also have a lockscreen GIF wallpaper options 😊, thanks by the way.
perfect app, another great customization setting would be playback speed as some GIFs are a bit choppier than others
Awesome app but I'm only giving it 4 star because it does not let me have different wallpapers and lockscreen wallpapers
Love the app , but what I don't understand is why you can only use one live wallpaper at a time , you can't have live wallpaper for Lock screen and home screen, that's why I gave it 4⭐. I mean I can't set a live wallpaper as home screen and lock screen at the same time
IT WORKS!!!! ok this app is amazing all other apps that I try say they make a animated wallpaper but never work but this on the other hand works with ease 5 stars ez
First day using the app and it works very well! I haven't encountered any problems with the app so far.
I really love this. It WORKED exactly as I wanted to and was the exact thing I was looking for. However, the gif wallpaper stopped appearing live and is just a still image from one of the frames. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and nothing has changed. I have high hopes for this app, so for now I'm leaving 4 stars.
It's really easy to use! No problems at all. Every other one I tried to use had either so much ads and/or were so confusing. Thank you! 🌺πŸ₯Ί
I appreciate the functions of the app and how it gets colors based on the GIF like a palette to choose from. But, please assure all of us (including new app users) that our information is safe based on the Privacy Policy of the app. *EDIT* Thank you. Just leaving a reminder, in case others notice anything πŸ‘
Suprisingly very easy to use ! I did have a little trouble at first but I fugured it out and all was well. I do wish there was croping instead of rotating etc but overall a good app
Love this!! Ty so much for making this app!! I can finally make my favorite animated kawaii pixel art gifs my wallpaper again just like on my old Sony Ericsson slider phone! Brings back memories So happy!!! <3<3<3<3
Thank you. There's no review I can leave here to describe how much this app does its job. So, thank you. Edit: Asides from the perfection of execution (call it a small app or whatever), I just realized that the source is available. As a developer myself, I honestly respect that. Thank you.
There's a small limit of GIFS you can download that will show...But it's really helpful when I want to have a GIF as my wallpaper,,But,i kinda want and update so all the GIFS you download show so you don't have to keep downloading it..But it's a awesome game!Looking forward for new updates that maybe would happen πŸ‘€πŸ‘οΈπŸ‘οΈ (Gave it a three because all the work you put in it )
Extremely quick, very simple and easy to use. Straight forward and did exactly what was expected and what I needed! Thanks so much! It's great!
Damn sick application. I can now customize my phone according to my weirdness. If i had $10, id give to you. Sadly, i have none.
This is probably one of the best gif live wallpaper apps. I always use this app it is amazing and is it possible to make a video live wallpaper? Like everything on this app but make it a video instead of a gif?
This is perfect. Works on the homescreen only but it's smaller than having to download Walloop and use the same thing in that app.
App is awesome! However if there would be an option for controlling the speed of the GIF, that'd be great!
I like this app. It's really easy to use but why does the gif be faster then the original gif. You can't slow down the speed. Other than that it works.
I'm going to come back when I get time, for now I'm leaving the review at 4 stars while i test it out but I'll probably bump it up soon tbh EDIT: So far i haven't had any problems and i like it a lot so 5 stars for doing what it said it would! Plus it resizes automatically to fit the whole image which is nice
Sorry, but it just kick me out the moment i get in... It might be storage problem tbh but i'm not sure.
It has patential but my lg stylo 3 android 7 has the app saying that the app stops every time that I hit open gif
Ok update There's no setting so I can not choose to change from home screen to lock screen and vise versa Also the app can only set for either home screen or lock screen but not both .
No ads, simple and to the point. Thank you. Would be nice to have details of what changes when updates are made though.
I tried several apps to create animated wallpapers but most of them had something bad to them however, this one is the easiest to use and has no ads at all. Definetely the best option. And the best of all is that it is open source.
This app is awesome and work finely.. however it consumes so much battery Please look at this issue...
READ THIS PLEASE! Okay, this is amazing but one problem is having the freedom to zoom in on the image at will, instead there are preset positions that you can only move around maybe that could be added. Also being able to put more than one gif on the screen at a time so say if I want one at the top and one at the bottom it would be a perfect addition. Other than that the app is wonderfully probably the best if not the best one out there! (灬º‿º灬)β™‘
I was really confused on how to work it but I figured it out and it so cool I love this thing so much whoever is Reading this you should install it so amazing πŸ‘
dude, I'm so happy!! this words absolutely fine without any lags or crashes, android never had any option to set gif as lock screen but this app has!! definitely worth installing.
Wonderful, really awesome. I just wish I could set different gif to home screen and different one to lock screen, but anything but that this app is awesome
Its great but for me at least its a one time use like it glitched i guess and didnt let me apply new wallpaper.
