The Nexus One was a revolutionary device. Not only did it feature an ultra-fast 1GHz processor and a revolutionary 512MB of RAM, it also came with one of the biggest technological achievements of this decade: the Nexus wallpaper. This live wallpaper was the epitome of live wallpapers: it oozed grace and wisdom, all while looking beautiful. However, it doesn’t come pre-installed on other Android devices, and it’s not highly customizable. Nexus Revamped changes all of this.
This live wallpaper is designed to take the great wallpaper from the Nexus One and not just copy it, but augment it. In the original wallpaper, you don’t have any choices about how to customize it. Nexus Revamped lets you change unique things like the speed and spawn density of the dots. It also supports multitouch reactions.
The Pro version is also quite interesting. It’s a little odd to think of paying for a live wallpaper, but if you do, you’ll probably like what you get. It allows you to change the background image, as well as change particle colors. The coolest part is probably the ability to change color and speed based on battery life. Now, just by glancing at your phone, you can tell exactly how charged it is.
Nexus Revamped is a great little wallpaper for anyone who enoys setting up their device exactly as they want it. Its battery indication controls, available only in the Pro version, are especially interesting, as they allow you to check your battery level without any effort, and it’s overall quite nicely designed. It’s available for free, with a $0.99 Pro version, on Google Play for any device running Android 2.1 or above.
