Minor customisation options have been added to Ubuntu Phone Live Wallpaper – an Android app that apes the look of  the Ubuntu mobile lock screen.

Although none of the new additions are of the brain-melting variety they will be welcomed by tweakers looking to tailor the drape to suit their tastes.

The major change concerns the “circle” centre-point of the wallpaper. This can now be resized and repositioned from the ‘Live Wallpaper Preview‘ screen.

Pinching in and out will make the circle smaller and bigger respectively; whilst a simple tap and drag on it will allow you to move it anywhere on the screen.

The ‘Clock’ and ‘Date’ formats can be adjusted, too. When previewing the Live Wallpaper press the ‘Settings…’ item to:

  • Set Clock display to 12 hour or 24 hour mode
  • Set Date format to DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY


Ubuntu Phone Live Wallpaper is a free download for Android 2.2 and higher, available from the Google Play Store. You can see our video review of the previous release on our YouTube channel.
