Mixt for Android lets you quickly create gradient wallpapers for your gadget. It's a simple, effective look, that won't distract you and will let you get straight to what you wanted to do.
The interface is straightforward. There are two circles, one up, one down. Tap either circle to select a color from a colorwheel, with a brightness slider. Long tap them to enter your color as a hex digit. There are all sorts of tools out there for picking nice colors, and find color codes. You can also quickly switch the top color with the bottom color.
You can't move the circles to change gradient direction, but this helps to keep it simple. What you end up with nearly always looks good. Mixt is so easy to use that you'll be able to change your wallpaper all the time, to match your mood. You can also save any gradient you create to your gallery, so you can easily set it back again later, or keep a few favourites. They all get saved in a new folder called Mixt.
You can make your wallpaper look like a cocktail, or a sunset, or use your favourite sports team colors. Or just have simple fades between grey and black, or white and any color, or between two shades of blue.
Mixt will appeal to those who are bored with their stock wallpaper, but don't want to spend lots of time picking a new one. Just avoid heavily contrasting colors like pink and green, or orange and blue. With Mixt it takes just a few seconds to change your wallpaper; and then you'll have something attractive, minimalist and unique to your device.
