Downloaded this app to place gifs as wallpapers. I then Googled gifs of best girl and bam done. The app while a bit clunky allows you to resize the gif which makes it great.
This is the Android app I used to apply the gif as a wallpaper and this is a link to Haymurus' DeviantArt out of courtesy since she helped me with the art extending the frame height.
Here's an app (that I haven't personally tested) that claims to let you set gifs as live wallpapers on android.
so i tryed to also add it to my lock screen, i could not for the life of me find an app that does this without useing an entily new lock screen. i came up with a 2 part solution with [link]
to make a live wall paper of the gif and then [link] to set that live wallpaper to my lock screen. with this i can change the lock screen to a gif while useing the default lock screen embebed in the os. only problem is as far as i can tell the home and lock screen wallpaper have to be the same.
Here is the gif. Download it.
Then you will probably need an app to set it as background.
On my android system I used this
GIF Live Wallpaper
Along with KLWP for the time.
Icon Pack: Moonrise
I found this one that works [link]
It requests a lot of your data but I blocked that with Titanium Backup and the app works great.
Are you on Android or IPhone? I think it's native to IPhone, on Android you'll probably need an app like GIF Live Wallpaper, as long as your phone has live wallpapers you can use this app.
With this app: [link]
Just select the gif you want, place it and save, select to use in both screens (lock and home)
Your phone must be compatible with animated wallpapers to work properly
I don't have an iOS device, so I don't know if the above works correctly. But the Android program works like a charm!
I have stabilized it. Or at least the Appa
I've made it work with this app that's on Android.
Yep, if you download an app on Android. I'm not sure about iOS. I use GIF Live wallpaper myself.
My phone is a Oneplus 5T, so ideal resolution is 1080x2160 (18:9) but with pixel stuff stretching to fit isn't too bad as long as the ratio is pretty close.
If you have a Droid os you can use this app to set as a background! [link]
Yes! Take the gif version from this comment and use with in this app
That's what I did.
Download the gif and give this app a try:
If it doesn't work, search for other apps that will let you make a live wallpaper out of a gif.
i personally use gif live wallpaper
if that doesn't suit you then you can check out this thread i made asking the same question.
PS: sorry for not responding sooner, i just came back from school.
I'm not sure it will works but you can check this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.awesome.giflivewallpaper
So for the background, the app I used to apply it was GIF Live Wallpaper, and for the widget, I used the other app Kustom offers, KWGT. Make sure you have the Pro version or the Pro key for KWGT, or else you can't use the widget shown on the screen.
[link] first get this app... Then download this gif [link]
And then combine them UwU
Try this app:
Works for me, but the resolution is a bit low (not sure if thats just the gif or the app)
Sorry guys,forgot to put the way, so you use this app and then download the gif
Yea, there are two apps you can use that are the best. [link]
The app I use to set the wallpaper on my Pixel 2.
Link to the gif I used.
There are probably other options, but the app I use for it is GIF Live Wallpaper. It's a little fiddly, but it does the job.
For GIFs like this which aren't already in the right ratio for a screen, you can either stretch the gif to fit (which will look rubbish), or choose a background colour - thankfully with this one being on a plain black background you can just pick black and voila.
Hope that helps, let me know if I can advise on setting it up :-)
Can try changing region on device. I'm in Canada and have that option.
Also can go 3rd party way
For .gif [link]
Oh right,download the gif live wallpaper app [link] after saving the image as gif the you can resize it in app then you can set the live wallpaper.
I use this gif: [link]
I have to position the gif zoomed in and to the right because of my screen dimensions
The app: [link]
I like the clean interface you have in LWP+, but I can't position the gif freely.
There's an app called GIF Wallpaper which has no/little cost on battery and can do this perfectly.
A bit fiddly to use the first time, but the results are great.
I use this gif [link] and this app [link]
I'm using an android phone, it fits really well
Use this app to set a GIF as a live wallpaper, and choose either the lock screen, wallpaper, or both
GIF live wallpaper
If you wanna use a video instead of a GIF use this one (there's also a free version)
If you're using an S8/S9 they have support for gif lockscreens. If you want to use a gif as a wallpaper you can try using an app like GIF Live Wallpaper. Though it may not look great if its a low resolution image
There live wallpaper programs that let you use GIFs as your background
Edit: this was the first option when searching "gif wallpaper" on the store,
Edit 2: App was already referenced before my comment... My bad
Is there an easy way to make this a live wallpaper for a cell phone? Preferably Android, I ask only because I have never tried making one for a phone before.
EDIT: I did it using GIF Live Wallpaper App located here, worked fairly well: [link]
I use GIF to live wallpaper to turn any gif to a live wallpaper.
I found the exact scene over at r/cinemagraphs. There you can find tutorials on how to make these.
[link] Heeeere you go.
Just thought I'd share a gif I saw from this Reddit post. I cropped it to 1440x2560 and used GIF Live Wallpaper to set it as a background. I see most people here are much better at Android customization, but I am deleting it and just thought I'd leave it here just in case anyone wanted it.
Static Image Version
2960x1440 gif for the Note 8
[link] this is your solution if you got an android!
I used this gif [link]

I searched the play store for GIF wallpaper and found the one below. [link]
If you have an Android phone you can use this app to use this gif as a live wallpaper.
Yup, use this app. [link]
There's several, I think this one was a good one.
I uninstalled it because I knew it would be a load on the battery.
If you have an Android: [link]
GIF wallpaper app
Oh, I use an app called GIF Live Wallpaper.
I loaded this gif to an app called GIF Live Wallpaper
If your on Android there are apps that let you set gifs as wallpapers
Use this app. It has good reviews.
Gif Live Wallpaper

Then I made the wallpaper in this app: [link]
Here's the result: [link]
Sony Xperia XZ1
You can get an app that lets you. I used [link] But I'm no expert in what app is best.
Well for an android option there is GIF Live Wallpaper
Yes, just save as a gif and use GIF Live Wallpaper
Android GIF Wallpaper APP.
You're welcome x
[link] or something similar
I use this app for that, but unfortunately I can't get it to work with this gif for some reason, not sure why.
Update from my previous post:
This app will do the job on android:
Here it is in action:
I use this app to turn GIFs into live wallpaper: [link]

Thank you OP's mate
I used the GIF Live Wallpaper app to get the animated background.
Here is the backgroung GIF.
For the icons, I used the Free Delta pack.
Default Oneplus launcher.
sorry for awful video quality, does anyone know of a better screen recording app than mobizen?
Ah, forgot to mention that.
Used GIF Live Wallpaper.
Time to install Gif Live Wallpaper and set some new wallpaper on my Android!
Here's the GIF: [link]
Here's the APP: [link]
This one allowed me to resize and was decently smooth, still gonna have black bars though.
Made it a gif with this
Icons are Whicons
Clock is "Minimal Ring" from Minimal VL1
Battery is Kustom #42 from Ocea KWGT
Calendar is a widget from Month
Download it as a GIF then use this app
I don't have any problems with this application, or I can recommend this one as well:
I had this as my phone background using this : [link]
I saw this as an android user and thought why not. This is how I did it.
First I downloaded the MP4 uploaded to mediafire by /u/DontZzz34 (thanks!) then converted it to GIF on EZGif downloaded the original output, downloaded then uploaded to my Google Pixel 2. To save you time I uploaded the GIF to Imgur where you have the option to download as a MP4 or GIF.
Next I followed this helpful guide where you download GIF Live Wallpaper app.
I had to do some resizing to fit the white border within the app using 'the pinch-to-zoom gesture,' after that I hit the bottom right tick and selected it for my Home & Lock screen.
But a warning as /u/bmack27 mentioned getting 'tired of being flash banged by the bat' and after a few minutes doing this I see their point. I have a night clock so I will only get blinded if I cannot sleep.
I hope this helps my fellow android users.
I use this app
Install gif live wallpaper
Used to use that app and it works great
I'm using this one. Try it for yourself.
Try gif live wallpaper been using for years. Download some gifs from giffy
Either of these work. I own both. Battery runtime doesn't seem very affected, as long as you're not using a high framerate, large # of frames GIF.
With this 😉 [link]
Just use this: [link]
Yeah but it isn't the best ratio.
This one was recommended a few times on the web, so I gave it a go.
I have a Samsung and it lets you post gif as lockscreen but not on home screen so I use this app
There are apps for it
If you're on Android you can use this [link]
(/gamerlunasmirk-r) As I previously explained this can be used as a cellphone background, here is how:
- Install this app for Android. It's mentioned all over the net, that linked article has a good step by step guide .
- For iPhone I found this .
- Download the gif, in your phone
- Open the app, and follow the guide, it worked fine.
I'm not 100% happy with it yet; I'm still looking into aligning the lightning flashes.
This works for Home screen
I use android, but don't know if it is also available for iOs but here the link if Android
Whoops, sorry. I was a bit busy earlier. But here you go:
For iOS, I don't think it's as simple. Based on this article, apparently you can only use it as a lock screen, which will animate when you press firmly on your power button.
Use this app
And In return u have to subscribe to PewDiePie
Oh ok, just install this app and download this gif
2 seconds of Google later...
Super simple. Download the gif from the Reddit and use this app
Use this app my friend : [link]
I use GIF live wallpaper for my phone
Here's the link : [link]
This is what I used
with the GIF Live Wallpaper app
Use this if you have an android
Here ya go dude
I used this: [link]
I did it using GIF Live Wallpaper App located here, worked fairly well: [link]
Should be apps to do this. Give a quick peek in the Play Store.
Here is one.
The best solution I could find is this post on XDA. I don't have an S7, so I'm not sure if it will work, but this comment on that thread said:
>Just letting you know that this worked today for a Galaxy S7 Edge on Verizon, Nougat. Thank you very much, this is a great solution to months of trying to get this to work!
Whereas two comments a couple replies down said it no longer worked after the 7.0.
And this app can turn gifs into live wallpapers, which is pretty handy.
I use this app for making it my wallpaper
Wallpaper: Used an App(Gif Live Wallpaper) and this gif
Clock: Minimalist KWGT Pack
Works well for the gif form.
I used Gif Live Wallpaper
I use one called Gif Live Wallpaper. Incredibly simple to use and works perfectly. [link]
If you're on Android, you can! I used this app. If you want, I can post an example of how it can turn out.
It's not a launcher, but I found this: [link]
It should work with any launcher.
Are you using an Android phone? If so this is the one I found that seemed to work best.
Hope it helps
