Choose among eight different, individually unique and beautifully minimalistic islands for your homescreen. Feeling forest-y? Go with Isle of Trees! Feeling that anger boiling? Maybe Isle of Lava is more fitting! Sitting on the subway? Isle of Urbanity is probably a good fit! More islands are constantly being worked on as the artist Jenny Hanell finds the time to do so.
Live wallpaper without the battery drain
From the very beginning Material Islands was built to have an as small as possible impact on both your RAM and battery. The islands are not doing any superfluous animations that make your device stutter but instead are silently updated in the background so that anytime there’s a redraw ready it has already happened! Forget 60 FPS, with Material Islands it is more like a handful frames a day!
Daytime, Nighttime, Anytime
Your chosen island follows you through the day! While you’re getting ready in the morning the Isle of Ice is still warming up from the night. When you are leaving the office for the day it looks like the party at the Isle of Paradise has already started. When you are refreshing the stream of your social network of choice for the last time late at night the Isle of Sand has already long fallen asleep.
Every Material Island is rendered straight from raw code, pixel-by-pixel right on your device ensuring a supersharp experience.
Wear it with pride ⌚
If you just can’t get enough of the islands you can even wear them as a watchface on your smartwatch running Android Wear!
Free, as in beer
This app is completely free. There are no ads and no pro version. You get the full experience of Material islands gratis! That does not mean that it does not take time to track down bugs or that it is always easy to find the time to draw new islands. There might still be bugs around, I have a lot of features that I still want to do and islands that I still want to draw. If you want to you can support the project and help me feel more inspired by:

↔️ Bug fixes for parallax scrolling:
Now it shouldn’t make the home screen lag when the parallax mode is turned off. It could still make the home screen a little bit slow when it’s turned on though, but we’re working on it!
