Introducing your phone, the artist: Flip your phone and watch it draw a sketch.
The coolest way to use this app is to flip your phone through 360 degrees such that the screen will come to face straight up and straight down. As you hold the phone still and upright, it takes a photo and begins to sketch it. Please do not drop your phone!
If flipping your phone is too much hazzle, relax: There is another way. Share any of your pictures with an app, such as Android's Gallery app, to "Flip-To-Sketch."
Questions? There is a Google Group "Flip-To-Sketch Wallpaper" set up to help you out, plus you can also brag about your sketches there, and request your dream features.
Want to share your sketch? When used as app, this works just as it does for most apps, from the action bar or menu. For the wallpaper, just double-tapping on any empty part of the screen will save a screenshot and ask you to select an app for sharing to social media. You can even try making a sketch of the sketch by choosing to share to "Flip-To-Sketch."
PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK!
Any form of feedback is greatly appreciated. If you report a problem or have a feature request, tell me so I can get on it!
1. The current sketch is not saved across device resets or when using the app, where switching to other apps can cause the current sketch to be lost.
2. Probably fixed in version 0.25: Pressing "New Sketch" in the scene acquisition has crashed the app at least once. See https://groups.google.com/d/topic/flip-to-sketch-wallpaper/TnI5VU2C1kQ/discussion
