Sony’s Xperia Motion Snap App for Android Converts Videos into Live Wallpapers
By on October 29th, 2012

One of the coolest things about Android is live wallpapers. Yes, they aren’t particularly utilitarian, but some of the live wallpapers are truly breathtaking. Now Sony has released an app to enable you to add a personal touch to your live wallpapers.

Xperia Motion Snap is a new app from Sony, which can record a short video and use it as a live wallpaper. After you record a video, the app will automatically convert into a looping live wallpaper. There are a few additional options, including miniature effect, which adds a nice looking blur effect to the video.

The bad news is that this app is only available for Xperia users in Japan. Fortunately for us, some enterprising users have already extracted the APK and shared it with the world. You can download and install the APK on any device. The other alternative is to use Video Live Wallpaper, which is a free app available in the Play store. Video Live Wallpaper has a few more options and can cycle through multiple videos. Xperia Snap, on the other hand, only works with videos recorded through the app, and is less configurable. However, Sony’s graphics engine is capable of recording pretty looking videos that work well as live wallpapers.
