Considering we spend a huge amount of time on our phones, it’s only right to have photos appear on them that make us smile, and remind us of people or times that we don’t want to forget. It’s a shame then, that whichever important photo we choose to become our wallpaper end up being covered with a multitude of different apps, narrowing it down to just the bits in between.
True, our lock screens show whole photos, but then the question becomes ‘what is the point in a wallpaper’? Sunroof answers this question for you, and gives you a reason to smile whenever you unlock your phone.
Even if your most valued photo takes a back seat behind a series of apps, it’s still within eyesight when you scroll though each page, reminding you of that special moment
Sunroof works under a simple premise. You first have to press your Home button, scroll to the final page where no apps cover your wallpaper, take a screenshot, and import it into the app. If you want a new wallpaper altogether, then it’s just as easy to allow it access to your album and either select one from there, or important the last image you took. After you do this a screen will appear will blank app spaces, filled in with what would be your uninterrupted wallpaper. Click on one of these squares and you’ll be offered a series of inputs, ranging from calling a particular person in your address book to creating a web page. Whilst you can cater the app space to your preference, the real point in doing this is to have that area be a screenshot of your wallpaper. Do it with every available space on your phone, and your wallpaper will just be your picture with several of your inputs; choose a few, and you can be left with your favourite part of the photo and several of your apps surrounding it.
The whole process sounds clever, which makes it seem complicated to do. This isn’t the case, however. If you have the photo that you want to use saved in your photo album already, it takes three simple steps: select the picture, choose the app locations you want to keep free, and turn it into your wallpaper. Once this is finished, you will either be left with the picture itself, or just the most important part of the photo. Although the app itself developing the wallpaper may be too complicated to understand, for a user wanting to use it it’s as simple as that.
With more attention paid to our phones than ever before, Sunroof makes sure you keep the most important things with you at all times. Even if your most valued photo takes a back seat behind a series of apps, it’s still within eyesight when you scroll though each page, reminding you of that special moment. It’s essential for anyone who spends too much time tapping through unimportant things, when a simple photo is what matters most.
