Created a Reddit extension for Muzei live wallpaper.

Introducing Muzei Live Wallpaper: A living museum for your Android home screen.

A year ago tonight, I published my first side project, DashClock [1]. Tonight, I'd like to introduce you to my new side project, Muzei, which is now open source and live on Google Play!

Get it on Google Play: get.muzei.co
Check out the source: code.muzei.co

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.

Muzei is also developer-friendly. In addition to being open source, it offers a simple API that allows you to build your own wallpaper source. For API details, visit api.muzei.co. The API should look pretty familiar to those of you who've built a DashClock extension before (even though it's completely different under the hood).

Featured artwork in Muzei is curated daily by my art teacher fiancée +Liza Gordon and me. The artwork images are thanks to WikiPaintings.org and its fantastic contributors.

Over the next few days/weeks, I'll be sharing more about the project: what inspired it, how it was built, and the thought process for some of my favorite design elements (some of which I've hinted at in previous posts).

And lastly, some fun facts for the curious:

• Muzei was imagined, designed, and built right here in chilly New York City—a city that never ceases to inspire. I highly recommend a visit, especially to Lincoln Center.
• "muzei" is a transliteration of the Russian word музей, which means “museum.”

With that, enjoy the app, and let me know what you think in the comments!

Would you please consider taking time for more development on this app. It has the potential to be the best reddit client for Android, and that potential is being squandered

Just created an extension for Muzei, which lets you configure any subreddit (default earthporn) as your wallpaper source in Muzei. You can click on the title to open the image in your favorite reddit app.

Screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/ppxcQ

Will be adding more configurable settings in the near future. For now you can just configure a subreddit, :)

Playstore link should be up in a few hours.. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.deeptrouble.muzei.picsfromreddit

Still in alpha, please try and let me know if it works for you.

Thanks !

Version 0.1.1.1 released

One minor fix to the previous alpha, the black lines that show up, while 'loading' content on Kitkat should no longer be visible.  Thanks for the testing, this is a general public release :)

Just tried out kitkat immersive mode support for flow. Once you are in immersive mode, a swipe from top/bottom brings back the status and navigation bars. Finally KitKat supports video capture ☺. Here is a video demo.

Edit:
Looks like video capture has some issues, a lot of stuttering in the beginning.  The last few seconds hopefully shows how immersive mode is supposed to work.
