Welcome to 'Paul's App of the Day', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! Today's app is...

Advanced Map Live Wallpaper

What they say

Set your favourite map as a Live Wallpaper showing your current position. Maps include Ordnance Survey, Google, Satellite, Bing, OpenStreetMap, and USA VFR and IFR charts (aviation)

* Automatic position refresh
* Map caching (low data usage)
* Battery friendly (no GPS required)
* Zoom settings
* Smooth scrolling
* Traffic

What we say

I love the Live Wallpaper that ships with Google Maps and this is a super-juiced up version of it! :) The OS map view looks great, love it!

Similar / Alternative apps

Google Maps also has a (much less featurefull) Live Wallpaper included.

Suggested improvements for the next version

I would like to be able to click on the background and toggle between map views and also change zoom level without entering the setttings pane.

Have your say
