Google : Live Wallpapers UI UX

Doodle is an open-source Android app that provides colorful live wallpapers with auto-dark mode and power-efficient animations.

The wallpapers are based on the original Doodle live wallpaper collection of the Google Pixel 4. Additionally, there is an exclusive "Material You"-inspired live wallpaper included.

The app is not just a copy of the original wallpapers, it's a complete rewrite without the permanent animations to save battery and storage space. In addition, there are many customization options to match your preferences.

• System dependent dark mode

• Power-efficient parallax effect on page swipe or when tilting the device
