A LIVE WALLPAPER APP THAT DRAWS FROM WORLD MAPS. $2.49 | tinyurl.com/tla75-skyline While most are happy for their smartphone background to feature their kids, partner or some other utterly boring thing, others prefer something more dynamic, more interesting. And what is more interesting than the earth itself? Skyline is a live wallpaper app which draws from Mapbox, which is “an open source mapping platform for custom designed maps”. Basically, you can either search for your favourite location, let Skyline select one at random, or base your desktop background on where you’re located at any given time (the rate at which it refreshes can be customised). We preferred the random location, because naturally, it’s more varied than the probably less-than-30km radius you travel every day for work. But the ability to seek your favourite location is handy as well. It’s a priced app, but that price isn’t too steep, and once you’ve paid it, Skyline doesn’t ask you to fork out again. It shirks any functional aspects of a map app, and we’d like to one day see this functionality perhaps integrated with Google Maps or the like, but in the meantime, this is nice if you love, uh, maps.
