Google’s Creative Labs have been releasing some interesting apps over the last few months, today they’ve launched another app called Meter and it’s a utility to turn your wallpaper into a live dashboard to feed you information at a glance.

The app is one of the Android Experiments found over at, the app itself appears fairly basic with the description stating:

This data-driven live wallpaper displays the battery level, wireless signal and number of notifications of your device in a simple visualization. It cycles through three visualizations with every unlock, and each wallpaper can be manipulated by tilting and moving the device. This simple ambient display creates a peripheral awareness of your phone’s status over the course of a day.

It all looks a bit modern to me, but it certainly looks useful. If you’re interested in giving it a go head over to Google Play and check it out.

Price: Free

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
