Available for free on the Android Market, Contact Live Wallpaper not only allows you to create your own live wallpapers right from scratch but also provides you with a chance to tag your contacts or place photos of them on those wallpapers, thereby allowing you to interact with them directly from your homescreen. With Contact Live Wallpaper, you get a chance to utilize the true potential of live wallpapers on Android. You may pick from the app’s preconceived (built-in) wallpapers or create an entirely new wallpaper of your own from a captured image or one imported from your device’s gallery. Tapping on the tagged segment of the wallpaper or on the photo of a contact lets you call, text, mail your contacts or check their details.
Contact Live Wallpaper adds both flair and functionality to your otherwise ‘lifeless’ homescreen background.
Just like any other live wallpaper, placing Contact Live Wallpaper on your Android is fairly simple. Long press on a vacant spot on your homescreen and select Wallpapers > Live wallpapers > Contact LiveWallpaper. To tweak the Live wallpaper or to create a fresh one, tap the Settings button.
From the Settings screen, you can import an existing image of your choice to use as the wallpaper and tag your contacts on any part of the image. In case you wish to use a Preconceived Wallpaper, the app lets you pick from its collection of various good-looking wallpapers, each carrying at least a couple of image slots that you may fill with your contact photos. Under the Behavior menu on the Settings screen, you can select your preferred mode of interaction with snaps (single tap/double tap) or you may disable any interactions at all by unchecking the Enable Touch option.
The demo (free) version of Contact Live Wallpaper lets you select from just three preconceived wallpapers and only a couple of contact images to place on your custom live wallpapers. However, the full (paid) variant of Contact Live Wallpaper is void of any of these restrictions and costs $1.94 (as of now).
The app’s official demo video below shows how you can use Contact Live Wallpaper to create your own wallpapers and tag contacts, all in just a few taps.
