Android 5.0 Lollipop is a hotly anticipated update for a number of reasons, not the least of which are the great new features and performance improvements it introduces. At the top of most lists, though, is the beautiful new look of “material design,” which is a set of visual guidelines Google put together to bring Android into the modern era.

Google’s own work with material design is outstanding, of course, and apps update with the flat look and bright colors that characterize Android 5.0 are fantastic. Now, however, a new app available now in the Google Play store brings material design to life on your Android phone’s screen.

A nifty app by Joko Interactive called Minima provides a series of live wallpapers for Android devices that all stick to the look of material design, making great use of colors, shapes and layers created by subtle shadows.

Unlike other material design wallpapers, however, these wallpapers are alive, constantly and slowly moving around in the background.

Here’s the app’s description from the Google Play Store:

Minima Live Wallpaper brings an endless range of shifting shapes and colors to your homescreen!
+ Goes great with the slick Material Design elements of the newest Android OS version, Lollipop!
+ Shapes tilt and shift in 3D parallax motion as you move and scroll your device!
+ Over 60 hand-crafted themes!
+ Change colors to suit your taste!
+ Edit the built-in themes or create your own!
+ Let the Randomizer bring you a new theme once a day or even once a minute!

Minima is a free download, while a Pro version costs $1.99. Both are available immediately in the Google Play store.
