Wally is a new wallpaper app that goes hard on Material Design, gorgeous animations and all


Wally Material Design wallpaper app

Can’t remember the last time we’ve installed a wallpaper app, but newcomer Wally has definitely piqued our interest. The fun new wallpaper app features a healthy dose of Google’s Material Design elements, probably more so than any other Android app currently available in Google Play. The best part is you don’t even need to have a device running Android L to partake in this, with all the animations and color transitions working beautifully on our HTC One M8. The app pulls images from Wallbase and features:

  • Browse and save/set wallpapers
  • Filter wallpapers by time span, categories, resolution, and/or aspect ratio
  • Search by text and/or color
  • Browse random wallpapers
  • Browse your saved wallpapers

Even if you’re already using something else along the lines of Muzei, you’re going to want to give Wally a download if you want a hint of what’s to come in Android L. Wally can be downloaded for free via the Google Play link below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Where is the link?

    1. You don’t see the widget/link right under the YouTube video? In any case, here ya go:

      1. Sorry, I’m on my phone. Lol. I refreshed the page and it appeared momentarily. Long enough for me to quickly tap the link.

  2. That video reminded me how I don’t like the childish look of Android L’s onscreen buttons. App looks pretty, but I’d rather just use Muzei’s built in functionality and find my own stuff.

    1. look like playstation buttons to me

      1. That may change a lot of people’s views of the icons now. I never made that connection.

        Hmm… I may get a Sony background now. Maybe those lines like in the PS3.

    2. I hated them when I first saw them, but they’ve grown on me a lot. I prefer them now!

  3. I love looking at hot babes as much as the next horny guy or lesbian, but I never understood having a hot girl as a wallpaper?

    1. Sadly I did before I had a girlfriend/wife… I guess it stems from unfulfilled sexual desires

      1. Is it hard having a girlfriend and a wife at the same time? *Tip of the fedora to you good sir*

        1. hahaha, pretty much that the gf became the wife, but now that you mention it… 0.o

    2. Ladies first! Just ask One+One.

      1. Lol I remember that. I was a stock jock with a hint of minimalist.

        1. I’m a Stock Jock and Minimalist too. I wouldn’t go with the Hi C, but I am a kid at heart…. Thinking…. Ok, 2 Cheeseburger meal and a coke. Ditch the toy, I’ll just chew the ears off and lose it in the yard. ;)

        2. Yea. I feel a lot of people are. Though every now and then I become a themer. Though on my tablet, I’m a themer. I’m in the middle of making one now actually.

      2. hahaha I hadn’t seen that post, great stuff

  4. App looks nice, but it needs categories… just random wallpapers that I’m not interested in.

  5. 500 Firepaper still has me.

    1. none app is able to close to 500 firepaper and its awesomeness.

  6. I thought it was funny that Chris said the app “goes hard on”
