Skyline – Android Live Wallpaper which brings a Bird’s Eye View of your Location

Skyline – Android Live Wallpaper which brings a Bird’s Eye View of your Location

Skyline is a live wallpaper app with downloadable 3D world terrain data. It grabs 3D terrain data from Mapbox for your exact location, so you can see what it looks like from high above wherever you are in the world.

Features:

  • World Wide 3D Terrain Via Mapbox: Input your dream location name or coordinate and you are set.
  • Scene Shift: Animated when unlocking your phone or swipes on your launcher pages.
  • Parallax Effect: Have a sense of depth by rotating your phone.
  • System UI Theme Support: On Oreo 8.1 and later version of Android, system UI theme will change based on current terrain color

It also includes parallax effects so you can see more of the area when you unlock your phone, swipe through screens, or tilt your device in different directions. You can also set any location on the planet to get a different background, and pan and zoom before you apply a new background.

Depending on where you point the app, the results can be breathtaking; I enjoyed looking for interesting landscapes by searching through the places listed in the r/earthporn subreddit.

If you enjoyed the overhead view live wallpapers that came with the Google Pixel 2 (which you can also install on your own Android device), you’ll want to give Skyline a go too. It’s certainly worth the $2 asking price for a world full of eye-candy.
