Chris Lacy, the developer behind Action Launcher, is back with a new app called SwirlWalls. The app is described as a “next generation wallpaper experience”, and adds handmade spiral live wallpapers to your Android device.
“SwirlWalls makes the countless changes to the home screen, motion navigation swipes, and lock screen interactions you make every day instantly feel more responsive,” the Google Play listing states. “And with FlickFX, SwirlWalls’ (optional) Wii Remote-style physics system, you’ll discover a wonderfully fun micro-movement that just makes using your phone more fun.”

Below are some of the other features highlighted in the app’s list:
- Unlock real background interactivity: When you discover how much more responsive SwirlWall’s animated wallpapers make your phone feel, you’ll wonder how long you’ve been without it.
- FlickFX: A surprisingly addictive gesture-based control system where you scroll the device (just like a Wii remote) to make the wallpaper spin. Try to link the left and right sweeps together and sunbathe in microbes of joy that follows!
- Dynamic rendering speeds: SwirlWalls matches your phone’s refresh rate, so there’s no better way to experience and display your high refresh rate screen!
- Configurable movements: Change wallpaper directly from the home screen via customizable gesture controls. You can even set a gesture to “Lock” the screen on the device.
- Settings: Adjust background attenuation, color status / navigation lines, adjust rotation speeds and more.
It’s an interesting take on the background, and one that Lacy promises will be more fun and interactive than a typical wallpaper. SwirlWalls is available now for $ 4.99.
