Descriptions


Muzei is a live wallpaper that gently refreshes your home screen each day with famous works of art. It also recedes into the background, blurring and dimming artwork to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory.

Alternatively, you can choose your favorite photos from your own gallery or other apps to use on your home screen. To keep your wallpaper fresh, Muzei will rotate through your favorite photos every few hours.

Finally, Muzei is developer-friendly. All the code is available at http://code.muzei.co and Muzei even offers a simple API that allows you to build your own wallpaper source. For API details, visit http://api.muzei.co.

If you use a third party wallpaper source, you must disable Battery Optimizations on that app to allow it to continue to load artwork. An updated API is in development to remove this requirement.

·····

Muzei now includes a watch face for Android Wear, so you can see your latest wallpaper right on your wrist!

·····

Made in New York by Roman Nurik. Muzei is a transliteration of the Russian word музей, which means “museum.”

Featured artwork in Muzei is curated daily by our small staff and made possible thanks to WikiArt.org and its contributors.

Many thanks to Ian Lake for the watch face, and the many other contributors that help make Muzei possible.

    Almost perfect. The developer(s) need better curating. It's not that the art choice is bad, I've actually enjoyed that. However the quality of certain works is too pixelated for today's screens. Please consider only using higher resolution images Full Review

    Used to work great. Now it has trouble changing wallpapers on its own. I've had this problem with multiple phones. It'll work if I change to wifi only, and then stop working. And then if I change it to not wifi only, it'll work for a bit and then stop. Wish it would work all the time. Full Review

    It's gone back to getting stuck on one wallpaper and only showing half of it. I have to change sources, restart my phone to sometimes get it to work again. I use this app with backdrops. Full Review

    First app I put on all my devices. Beautiful. The lastest update is great. The only thing that would make this perfect for me at least it's to add an option to stop wallpaper scrolling. I know some custom launchers do this but I actually prefer stock. Thanks for your hard work. Full Review

    Coming back to this app after 3 years only to find that you still haven't given us an option to resize or adjust the wallpapers to our screens! It's not even scrollable! Beautiful app but it's all a waste if it won't fit our screens! Full Review

    Works well for it's intended purpose and looks pretty. There should be a feature to adjust wallpapers on that are being used. If there's an error, it should tell you what file cannot be opened. Full Review

    Love the app, just one question for a feature update: Right now we can choose to not blur when on the lockscreen and I was wondering if it could be introduced that you can swap this. I'd like to have a sharp image on my home screen and have it blurred on my lockscreen. Is this possible? Full Review

    Came back to Muzei after a few months after reading there had been "substantial internal improvements" ...which still don't include the ability to adjust the positioning of wallpapers. Can't be that substantial if most negative comments reference that feature lacking and you don't address it. Oh, and upgrading to this latest version managed to blow out my selection of images from My Pictures and you can only select and add one image at a time? How many reviews does it take to get a feature implemented?! I'd happily pay for a version that let's you reposition. Full Review

    Can't believe the images still don't fit the screen. Thanks a lot for the pointless "options" to blurr the image (who doesn't want blurry art??!!) but still nothing to re-size/recenter the image properly. Yet again the verdict is: uninstall. Full Review

    Great app. Just one tiny thing: I want to adjust the wallpaper of the day manually if the chosen part of the painting is not the best of the whole. Full Review

    Love the app but most of the time it doesn't change the wallpaper as scheduled on my S6 Edge which is really annoying, even when I go into the app and press the next arrow a lot of the time the wallpaper won't change. I have uninstalled/re-installed and cleared the cache etc with no success, it works perfectly on my Pixel C tablet so must be an issue with my phone which is running Nova launcher btw. Other than that I think its one of the best wallpaper apps out there. Full Review

    Un intuitive. Uninstalled - When selecting wallpapers you must do it one photo at a time (can't select multiple) - when done you're brought to an editing page that has no "launch" or submit/proceed" button I suppose you just exit the app. - Editing options for lock/home screen affect the opposite screen (lock screen settings affect home screen instead) - lock screen doesn't even change to the wallpaper selected Full Review

    It's a great idea and used to work pretty well but the wallpapers always get stuck on a picture no matter the source or the update interval making the app pretty much useless. Full Review

    First time giving review for an app. This is amazing, I've been looking for a wallpaper app that has a dynamic function + great collection of wallpapers, and this app got both! Plus I really love that you can also put your own collection of wallpapers! Full Review

    Any idea on how to display my pictures that I had on my previous phone that looked fantastic with this app on a 18:9 screen (LG V30)? Same images look different on this phone, it has a blown out (zoomed in) look to the wallpaper. I want to keep my original images for wallpaper. Any suggestions? Full Review

    An awesome app idea, with very good execution. But on my lg wear, the images are forced to fit the screen when i use them as backgrounds on factory included watch faces, making them appear cramped. Full Review
