-You can pick any image from your gallery.
-IOS7 like parallax live wallpaper.
-Full gyroscope controlled moves gives your photo depth effect.
-If your device don't have gyroscope, you can select accelerometer from settings.
-You can select move speed from settings.
1) A simple static starfield with different sized stars to imply depth. Kind of what you might see out the window when your starship is stationary.
2) A parallax starfield, i.e. all the stars are moving in one direction. This might be what you would see when looking out the side window of your starship when moving at high speed.
3) A 3D starfield. When moving at high speed in your starship, this might be what you would see out the front window.
4) A 3D interactive starfield. This is much the same as 3), but you can alter the speed of travel through the starfield using the Volume keys as well as alter the travel perspective by touching the screen. This starfield has configuration options to control number of stars and travel speed.
If you like the experience of the 3D interactive starfield, take a look at my Starfield Live Wallpaper app that puts this behind your Android launcher home screens.
Note: If snowflakes scaled, open settings and it will be fixed forever.
What are stereograms?
A stereogram is an optical illusion of stereoscopic depth created from a flat, two-dimensional image or images. At first sight a stereogram looks like an abstract image made of repeatable patterns. But if you look at it in a special way, the hidden 3D picture will magically appear. What you will see is a relief object or objects wrapped with the pattern you can see in the 2D picture. Some stereograms don't have hidden images and consist of several objects placed in rows. When you perceive them, the objects will appear three dimensional, sometimes resting on different levels of depth. Not all stereograms are the same. There are different types and styles of stereograms.
A stereogram is a two-dimensional, computer-generated, graphic image that has a 3-D image hidden in it. This hidden image can only be seen when viewed from the proper perspective. A stereogram has two levels of reality. There is the surface level which often appears chaotic and disorganized with its variety of colors and patterns. There is also the deeper and hidden level of reality, the hidden image, that contains the real meaning of the stereogram. The hidden image is the "real" reality of the stereogram. Because stereo photo exist on these two levels, they can be used to teach lessons about the hidden dimensions of the everyday world in which we live. See if you can find the hidden images.
How to see the magic?
Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares. If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares. If you see one or two squares, start over! In order to view the 3-D images, simply stare at the picture until the image starts to take shape.
When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still, and the hidden image will magically appear. Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes. Good Luck!

View the pictures full size, and see where the photo was taken in relation to you on a map.
Pictures Near Me is great if you want to discover interesting things near your home or when on vacation - if you've used the iOS Flickr Photo Map app, this is similar!
The application also offers a 'daydream' screensaver (on supported devices, Android 4.2 or newer)
This release currently searches Flickr, but more services should be added in future releases. If you have any feature requests or problems/crashes, please mail me as it's hard to monitor comments here.
You can tweak the search settings for age of pictures, distance from your location, and ordering (such as date taken, distance, interestingness).
Modify External Storage: For caching the full size images you view. Delete the cache from the settings screen.
Your location: For finding your location to get relevant
Network Communication: So the application can download images.
Prevent phone from sleeping: You can set the screen to stay on when viewing the map tab - set this option in the settings screen.
- Some of the images aren't from near me at all?
This can happen if the photo owner incorrectly geotagged their picture. If it bothers you, visit the photo page with the flickr button, and let the owner know!
- None of the images are from near me, but are from somewhere I was earlier?
This can happen if your location hasn't updated (no GPS fix, outdated network location). Try hitting the refresh button.
-The app crashes?
Please let me know- ideally with a logcat output and details of your device/version. I'll try to work it out...
- New 'Daydream' screensaver for Android 4.2+. Configure in your device settings > display > daydream
- Much improved speed when re-searching in an area covered by previous results due to caching more info.
- Some small bugfixes
- Small bugfix for when tapping blob on map sometimes would crash the app.
- You can now pan around the map view to see pictures in other locations.
- Added refresh button to map and grid search result screens
- Removed auto-zooming on map screen. New button added to zoom to fit in all result blobs
- Improved detection of initial location for searching.
- Bugfixes to reduce crashes when network errors occur.
- Map panning is new- please send in any crash reports that you get!
- Small update to show pinman in you location on map search screen.
- Slight reduction in apk size due to some redundant resources.
- Pictures Near Me is quicker! Photo details and thumbnails are now cached, so if you search again in the same area, things should load quicker.
