Doodle is an open-source Android app that provides colorful live wallpapers with auto dark mode and power-efficient animations.


The wallpapers are based on the original Doodle live wallpaper collection of the Google Pixel 4. Additionally there is an exclusive "Material You"-inspired live wallpaper included.


The app is not just a copy of the original wallpapers, it's a complete rewrite without the permanent animations to save battery and storage space. In addition, there are many customization options to match your preferences.



Features:


  • Stunning wallpaper designs and Pixel feeling

  • System dependent dark mode

  • Power-efficient parallax effect on page swipe or when tilting the device

  • Optional zoom effects

  • Exclusive "Material You"-inspired live wallpaper

  • No battery-hungry 3D engine

  • Improved text contrast (dark text for light themes instead of white text with shadow)

  • Support for Android 11 zoom effect

  • Many additional customization options

  • Rendering works well even on less powerful devices (very efficient rendering engine)

  • Also suitable for larger devices like tablets (scaling option available)

  • Tiny installation size
