This was a fairly decent app until the Nougat update that forced Samsung users to use a Samsung store to change wallpapers instead of the traditional, stock, wallpaper selector. This is remedied with the Google app wallpaper selector. My biggest issue with Muzei is the UI. There's no explanations anywhere. I've had the so for a year or two now and I either forgot how to adjust/turn off the blur or the option has been removed/relocated. Either way it takes the user way too long to figure out how to customize a fairly basic feature of a fairly basic app...
Edit: I changed my review from 3 to 2 stars because now muszei is stuck on a single wallpaper from backdrops please fix this I like the idea of the app but the execution seems a bit poor in two particular areas (that I know of). I use muzei in combination with backdrops to randomly pick a wall paper from backdrops every 4 hours. Unfortunately every few switches the wallpaper is cut off half way and only shows black for the bottom half. Another major issue is the widget which is supposed to force the next wallpaper to load but it seems most of the time it doesn't change the wallpaper at all. I like the idea of the app but these bugs need to be fixed
The app gets hung up alot and stops changing the wallpapers. I have to go in and force it to change to the next one. I have it set to change every 8hrs, using WiFi. It seems the issues arise when I'm not around WiFi for a bit. Hopefully this is fixed because its a decent app otherwise
Stopped working on Xiaomi Mi5 after the last update. Every hour or so the wallpaper displays black, and it only resets to normal upon restarting the phone :( please find a solution, this app is wonderful!
This used to be great but a recent update means that it no longer works. My screen is filled with white noise now when I'm using Muzei with Nova Launcher and have no way to address this. I can't use my phone when using Muzei. Until this is sorted I've had to lower my review.
Great app but it's stopped automatically changing the wallpapers. I have to go into the app every time I want to do that. It's not as simple as pushing the >> button as it can be stubborn. I have to coax it in to working by navigating through the customise menus a bit, without actually changing any of the settings.
- Many stability and crash fixes
- Better guarantees around only updating artwork when Muzei is your active wallpaper
- Android O specific enhancements including an updated app icon
