    This app should be a paid app. Absolutely fantastic. You can turn the quality and speed of the animations up and down depending how powerful your phone is or to conserve battery power, but on my galaxy s2, Sony Z1, Z5, XZp, and now a Huewei p30 pro there was little to no noticeable difference in battery life as you usually spend very little time with your phone sitting idle at the home screen

  2. Charlie Ryan-avatar

    Looks amazing, works great, can only see a problem with running this on a low spec phone, but this is not a real problem as the settings can be changed and lowered for hood performance

  3. FREDDY ELLOITT-avatar

    no,no,no,.the same happens here too with only being able to set the preferred wallpapee a couple of times before it reverts to some defaut setting.i woyld onagine this to not be the case if purchased

  4. iwishididntneedaname-avatar



    I always used static images as wallpaper until now. Every one of the shaders is cool and attractive. I encouraged my mother to download this - she uses Rainbow while I like Kalisyl. Definitely going to buy premium for more shaders and to make a donation to the dev!

    I've spoken with the dev and I've gotten the app working again. If you have a package disabler app, go and find "Live wallpaper picker" and un-disable it and the app should work again. I love the water one. It's super smooth and pretty.

  6. A Google user-avatar

    The app is awesome I'm in love with the animations and that little customization feature it has, the only problem is that, when I'm trying to set any of these wallpapers on lock screen, it just doesn't set, works fine and great on home screen but nothing on lock, dunno if anyone else has this problem, I'd love a solution for this. (Using Pocophone F1 with miui 10 and Android 9.1) Other than that it's beautiful, if this gets fixed it's a 5 star from me.

  7. Aiman Ghazi-avatar

    Easily the best live wallpaper / dynamic wallpaper in the playstore. It's got a lot of diverse and different types of wallpapers all of which looks really good, and it gives you options to change speed and quality for each of them, and it's even better when you realize it's super light, doesn't affect your phone speed, get on your memory or heat it up. And the developer keeps updating it, they even added more wallpapers recently. Love the devs, if it was anyone else, they would be selling this for a price. I don't do reviews at all but felt like more people needs to know about this. Recommended!

  8. EJT0002-avatar

    Very awesome. Full of very cool live wallpapers. Some work at full detail level smoothly. It's good that there's setting for that because some of them cause tremendous slowdown even at default level. "Flame" is one of the most noticeable. I have to put it at an extremely low setting but it still looks ok. Then there's others like "fire", "water," and "digital brain" that run amazing full level. Depends on your device, probably. Great app.

  9. C0dyy-avatar

    Great app! There is one good wallpaper and that is the one with tentacles. The other ones remind me of 2010 and I hate that era. I like how you can speed it up and how detailed the wallpaper is. I just wish there were more and better wallpapers. Either than that, great app if you want live wallpapers and not drain your battery that much

  10. Kelvin Kam-avatar

    Beautiful selection of wallpapers. Varying customizability depending on which design chosen. Doesn't seem to noticeably impact battery. Happy enough, I paid to support the developer. He doesn't run ads, and it's only a $1.50+! Don't be a cheapskate, developers need to eat too.

  11. A Google user-avatar

    awesome live wallpaper app. well worth the download. has a decent amount of configuration. Love it.

  12. Storm Reach-avatar

    Very nice live backgrounds that don't take as much memory as others in the Play Store, my favorite is a nice and slow Kalizyl. Recently it has stopped allowing me to change the settings and forces me to use Rainbow so that's quite annoying, but other than that it's great.

  13. Simon Ong-avatar

    The latest version is a great welcome with new design of amazing hexshader wallpaper. Problem the wallpaper does not work properly (break) when rotating to landscape or vice versa. This problem is not present when using the older version. Please have a quick fix as i am using it for my tablet.

  14. Shawn Cimiano-avatar

    Love this app. Some very cool looking backgrounds and it's free, what more do you want? I got the paid version for additional settings because at $0.99 why not. For those who are ranking poorly because you're phone is slow, it's not the apps fault your phone is old and can't handle it, either turn down the graphics or get a phone that isn't junk and try again.

  15. Amy Marie-avatar

    awesome. like rainbow n galaxy a lot. 2 things that would sell me on premium. add those and if Galaxy could be different colors or adjustable were optional that would be sweet. Tilt it if possible? Eye off centre, smaller to give a distant disk illusion with an outter edge more than a tornado or hurricane eye, it brings more to mind? Awesome app, original. I love it. enough to rate it. I RARELY rate apps. battery life is the wait n see keep or not thing. just installed. so idk yet. 🤞

  16. nathonski-avatar

    This is pretty awesome. Sharpest looking live wallpaper I've found. I'd mark it 5 stars if there were options to set home and lock screen backgrounds independently of each other, and to turn off home screen scrolling. Even if it were a paid version - definitely worth it.

  17. SteelBadger-avatar

    One of the best live wallpaper add ons out there. Comes with sliders for speed and resolution which adds an unexpected level of custsmization for every wallpaper on the library, giving the user the ability to have a unique background which can be changed on the fly.

  18. Matt-avatar

    Simple, beautiful and elegant, without being a battery vampire. Nice work! My favorite is Kalisyl, slowed all the way down, pixels on the larger side (25), then play with the color to fit my mood or even match my clothes. Very stylish.

  19. Tegar Bramasto-avatar

    This is my favourite Live Wallpaper. It's cool, sleek and doesn't drain my battery. My suggestion is, for the space theme sometimes the color change to light, so the icon name can't be read. Is it possible for the user to select the color? ============= After update it became more and more awesome. Thank you dev for making this awesome live wallpapwrer

  20. uistic-avatar

    Everytime i open it it says "something goes wrong" and closes instantly I reinstalled the app and the same keeps happening

  21. Draconis Nox-avatar

    They don't give you some of the backgrounds that they show on this page. Also, I can easily lag a sg9 on low setting since it has a memory leak and keeps running in the background even when another ap is open or the phone is off. Not good practice... Especially when you need to pay for it.

  22. Jackson Cassidy-avatar

    Jackson Cassidy


    Really like the app but when I started using the backgrounds is slowed down my framerate when scrolling through apps or even when opening an app. The problem only persists when the background is visible or was recently visible. (Samsung s7 with Nova launcher if that makes a difference)

  23. kryptonite166-avatar

    I love the flame live wallpaper. I would purchases the premium version if the app allowed me set the live wallpaper on my lock screen only. That would be an easy 5 stars. For now, I'm forced to use it on my lock screen and home screen.

  24. Lee Dunbar-avatar

    Excellent, if your phone can tolerate live wallpapers. I've never had a phone which could tolerate live wallpapers and still have decent battery life, my current situation is similar. Uninstalled only because my phone battery doesn't like live wallpapers.

  25. Doopy _Gaming-avatar

    Wow just i am amazed at how good some of the animations are and it doesnt drain my battery life either but this is an amazing app and i would definetly recommend it with people but i am a bit scared about these types of ads giving me viruses but i hope that doesnt happen. 5/5 stars from me

  26. Lachezar Spasov-avatar

    Lachezar Spasov


    Really like the app especially the sea waves wallpaper. I want to ask is it possible to get day and night mode for this wallpaper? I think it will give it a pretty cool twist.

  27. Akame-avatar

    This app was already amazing, then the new update came in and fixed the lag problems and other problems. Now I don't lag when I select a wallpaper, these look amazing on a S9 screen! Great job, keep it up! Looking forward to any new wallpapers from this app❤️

  28. Paul Lee-avatar

    Been loving this app since I got it. One minor quirk, after the recent update it seems the detail (I use max setting) isn't as high quality as it was before. Aside from that it's a great live wallpaper!

  29. Charlie59876-avatar

    Very confusing after the update. I have know idea how to set wallpapers any more. If you have to buy the premium to set wallpapers then i think it should at least say and if that's the case then this free app is completely pointless.

  30. Tanner Jongeneel-avatar

    Tanner Jongeneel


    With this app you get 1 background effect to use as either your home screen or both lock and home screens, once you coose the screen you want it as you can't change it unless you reinstall the app, You can swap and change the backround effects. I like it cause it's composed very well and uses little battery life.

  31. Finton Bagley-avatar

    I like it but why does the premium version get more? Don't people who doesn't have money deserve your work. I just really like the wallpapers on the others and I'll like to have it to appreciate your work, but I can't because we don't all get money!

  32. Evan Perkins-avatar

    The screenshots don't to it justice, this looks amazing in motion. Not sure what the battery drain is, but then again I've never felt compelled to stare at my home screen before.

  33. Chuck Johns-avatar

    well i purchased the full version and its fantastic for me. i use electric hi quality nice and slow with a tinge of green. beautiful. galaxy note 5. battery for me is excellent. well done on a beautiful live wallpaper.

  34. luis rosado-avatar

    Awesome shaders, great on battery life, so long as you have a good cpu, ie atleast SD 820 and up, my sd 835 has no issues with them, battery life is exacly the same, in also reduce pixel count and speed to make it smoother.

  35. Mark O-avatar

    Really nice live wallpapers. Each variety can be tweaked to your personal preference with adjustable settings (granularity, speed, etc.). I imagine it could be a resource hog if you use higher settings though.

  36. lobsterzaak-avatar

    Amazing app with amazing backgrounds, I like the hexagonal aspect but I wish you could turn it off. It would also be cool if you could upload your own video to be used as a live wallpaper.

  37. Mark Gibb-avatar

    Very cool. There are a bunch of different choices. Doesn't seem too hard on battery life at all. Although, if you need max battery life, it's best not to use a live wallpaper.

  38. Ivo Simeonov-avatar

    Awesome wallpapers but there is one big problem keeping me from giving 5 stars - they only work with the light theme of Android 9, and if this is fixed, I will buy the paid app right away!

  39. William Whitehouse-avatar

    William Whitehouse


    Its great,doesn't seem to affect battery life,and is completely free. My only complaint is on the sparkles in the "space" and "galaxy" backrounds. Could you add an option to turn those on and off?

  40. John Joseph Abique-avatar

    John Joseph Abique


    Very cool live wallpaper. Even though the options are limited, the presets are satisfactory enough to use. Pretty cool to watch, no matter the settings.

  41. Dr Nikola Milic-avatar

    Dr Nikola Milic


    After all this time i find one LWP app that is perfect! Low on battery and so beautiful. The author is so co-operative with the users and fix glitch in a glance. All recommendations!

  42. Tremaine Ramón Pillay-avatar

    Tremaine Ramón Pillay


    I notice that after every 3 or more days, I have to reboot my phone to fix the animation. It somehow breaks, the flame freezes completely and the fire ends up looking like patterned circles.

  43. Monopolistic Fox-avatar

    Monopolistic Fox


    I absolutely love HexShaders, it's not hard on the battery and very easy to use. Plus, I really like the livd wallpapers they offer, they're simplistic yet beautiful.

  44. Matias Almeida-avatar

    I would love to be able to download new presets... apart from that it has beautiful colors, Interesting visuals, fluid animation, with no noticeable drop in battery life or phone performance. 100% recommended!!!

  45. comicsansgreenkirby-avatar



    It runs great, except for some major bugs in Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The live wallpaper can't be changed from rainbow and sliders can't be changed without the live wallpaper going blank.

  46. Dawid Pawlak-avatar

    Nice, but shaders after a few hours of working loses randomness (some of them starts form random then works in a grid) (probably shader random problem not this app). the app offers a nice bunch of free options.

  47. Omid Kazemi Kordestani-avatar

    Omid Kazemi Kordestani


    It brings a smartphone into life. For me it doesn't drain the battery at all. Developer: shouldn't the program be called shader (without s) having effects (with s) inside it!

  48. A Google user-avatar

    This app is a must-have! I always used to struggle with finding a good wallpaper for my phone, but this app provides amazing and attractive wallpapers that are quite flashy, and all without draining battery too much.

  49. Raptor Swire-avatar

    No ads, completely free (so far) and looks beautiful! I would just prefer more programs or some calmer space, the white dots are too crazy. Beautiful tho!

  50. Faisal Feroz Khan-avatar

    Faisal Feroz Khan


    I loved the concept of the app and it works well for the most part but I'm unable to apply the live wallpaper to lockscreen on my phone. Please correct this issue. (Redmi Note 5 pro running MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo)

  51. William Legg-avatar

    The app is good and makes nice live wallpapers. I just wish I could also control the lockscreen to a similar version, a static image of the same type or something custom.

  52. carlosjnma-avatar

    I don't normally write reviews, but this is amazing! I did have it before, but i redownloaded it because of the new live wallpapers!

  53. Thomas Guppy-avatar

    I only use this for the flame preset, but for that alone it's pretty great... + good review because of the option to remove ads.

  54. Apatura, Inc-avatar

    I like it, might take up a little bit of battery🔋 but still nice to have if you are a light mobile phone user and don't need to make a lot of important calls.

  55. Jake L-avatar

    Great views and plenty of options for a unique background. Uninstalling because I have been using static wallpapers for a while and I think I'll stay.

  56. Brian Peceu-avatar

    Love this animated wallpaper app, always adding new ones, doesn't drain my battery and i can change the look of my phone with one app instead of having to download multiple ones.. Excellent job devs!

  57. Atticus Nari-avatar

    This is amazingly awesome. One thing is that it makes my UI in the light setting on Android 8.1 and it won't let me change it.

  58. Tom W.-avatar

    I think your App is great. I love the designs and how good they look even on my older tablet. I think this is a winner and I would love to see more background apps from you. Thanks for your hard work.

  59. Gavin Grayson-avatar

    Looks nice but unfortunately doesn't set lockscreen on Xiaomi Note 5 Plus. The only ad is a link to the full version, there's nothing else at all. Thanks Sergey for the quick reply to my previous comments.

  60. Press Start-avatar

    This is the best app if you want different live wallpapers with different customizations! Soon, I would want hs20. cloud ten.gl3t and hs20. zone alarm.gl2t to be lag proof for the devices at least 2GB RAM.

  61. Double Hook-avatar

    My favorite screensaver of all time. I love that new hex shaders have been added and old ones updated with new features, especially color options! Keep em coming!

  62. Compilation TV-avatar

    This is amazing I love the live wallpapers that just make your phone look cooler(well the wallpaper) and it doesn't really affect the battery

  63. Jim Roach-avatar

    Wasn't able to load the lower resolution options when premium version became available. Had to reinstall and now it is working again. Really enjoy this app.

  64. Akhil Shridhar-avatar

    Its quite aesthetically pleasing! You can just sit there staring at the display! Loved the app.

  65. Vikas Singh-avatar

    very nice.. i am using it from very long time.. it will not drop your phone performance.. in any ways.. n yes it makes your screen beautiful.. 20 choices.. n u can adjust according to your choice.. 👍 Wee done dev

  66. Muaz Khan-avatar

    Best live wallpapers app yet, I would suggest that you should buy the premium version if you want more customisation but you should try the non premium first.

  67. Aziz J. Sakerwala-avatar

    Aziz J. Sakerwala


    This is an amazing live wallpaper app, almost less to no battery consumption and with perfect choices. Definitely worth the five stars.

  68. Xavier X-avatar

    Nice to see an app that takes advantage of the power of the phone's GPU, nice optimization idea dilating pixels into hexagons, very cool!

  69. Gurosama Bltch-avatar

    I love it. Very beautiful. Might go for the premium version when I get bored of the colors.

  70. J Pedersen-avatar

    Free, nice app, no new permissions, small developer -- I'm not gonna complain about you trying to get some recognition. Would download again.

  71. Count Vargnar-avatar

    Shock on how live wallpaper battery drainage almost same as static wallpaper;nothing change. Kindly add more kind of live wallpaper that i gladly paid for that.

  72. Sena Prasena-avatar

    makes my phone looks really cool. many kinds if animation and various options for speed and particle size. beautiful. waiting for more animations/options

  73. awsomeboy991-avatar

    Very cool live wallpapers but no way to set to lock screen and no way to exit out of settings. Overall decent stuff.

  74. T James-avatar

    Nice interesting designs, just would love there to be more, maybe with a selection of colour schemes.

  75. Tuhin Chowdhury-avatar

    Tuhin Chowdhury


    Very good live wallpapers, but all wallpapers are not looking good with hexagonal pixels. Add some more wallpapers. 😊

  76. Jason Bean-avatar

    nice visual effects, different from the rest of the live wallpapers I've used.

  77. Michelle Vystar-avatar

    Michelle Vystar


    Love this app, Sergey. I'll try to upgrade to Premium whenever I can get the simple dollar needed. :)

  78. Paul Jobling-avatar

    This doesn't seem to have been tested at all! You select a shader (from the settings button), but there is no way to actually use it, whatever you choose gets ignored.

  79. Dan Rel-avatar

    This app is absolutely amazing, the only thing I dislike is on the galaxy shader which is my favorite it gets weird white particle effects

  80. GoTeamScotch-avatar

    Very crisp and looks great on OLED. I wish there were more shaders. Great wallpaper.

  81. Daniil Kagan-avatar

    Beautiful! I have paid for the premium, because I like it so much. But, the non-premium is all I needed. 👍

  82. Sonic Unleashed-avatar

    Sonic Unleashed


    Thanks for your efforts, a very cool application, I hope you add the detail level cancellation feature to show the background without points

  83. Madolche Procione-avatar

    Madolche Procione


    Great concept, highly customizable, and awesome selection to choose from.

  84. マッカイザクダン-avatar



    This is insanely good! I love it! Only thing better would be a Rain one.

  85. Anthony Price-avatar

    Wonderful live wallpaper, just wish you had the ability to make your own screens.

  86. Santa-Carla- Twilight-avatar

    Santa-Carla- Twilight


    Loved Project M but it was crashing on my G6. Found this, equally as beautiful but no option to randomize the different effects.

  87. Rhyno-avatar

    Beautiful animations, no lag/glitches, no extra battery consumption. Love it.

  88. Furqan Ahmed-avatar

    Amazing wallpapers, everything is so fine i really wish you guys keep adding more and this is so battery friendly i love it.

  89. Caleb McNalley-avatar

    Looks awesome, is customizable, and doesn't cause any noticable battery drainage. Awesome app

  90. Mark E-avatar

    very cool looking animations. there are allot of them. check it out. excellent work!

  91. Mike A-avatar

    Beautiful, lots of different designs, customizable, no obtrusive ads!

  92. prashant ganesh-avatar

    prashant ganesh


    Completely mind boggling live wallpapers! The hexagonal geometry makes it more appealing to eyes. Great work sergey !

  93. Jeremiah Long-avatar

    Wow. I rarely write reviews, but this live wallpaper app really impressed me. Great job, guys.

  94. Matt Hall-avatar

    Looks great but I'd like the option to turn off the fact that it scrolls with which home screen it is on

  95. Lion El' Jonson-avatar

    Lion El' Jonson


    App is legit good, but isnt entirely compatible with 7.0 Android It somehow makes the whole OS crash even on low quality and I'm not sure why

  96. Russ Bernhardt-avatar

    Nice effect. Works well even on mid-range phones like my Moto X4. Really clean.




    Awesome beautiful my only thought is please add more. This is stunning will see how it affects my battery and update my review

  98. James Turner-avatar

    set it as static so the wallpaper doesnt move. works great hoping it doesnt drain the battery set like this.

  99. Mark Kirkham-avatar

    Lots of beautiful, configurable wallpapers. Highly recommended.

  100. A Google user-avatar

    Doesn't work in the slightest anymore it just changes wallpaper back to defualt wallpaper after I open anything and go back to home screen not worth your time
