It used to be that some of the worst looking backgrounds you could put on your device were the default images provided by app developers, your phone manufacturer or the operating system itself. When turning to third party sources for great looking imagery, Google Calendar may not have been high on your list, but that might change right now.
Not only has Google managed some great looking seasonal backdrops in Calendar, a dozen to be precise, but the folks at AmongTech have stripped them from the new Material Design enhanced Google Calendar app, and made them available for all of us to enjoy at any time.
As you might imagine, the twelve images each represent a month of the year, meaning that you would otherwise only have the pleasure of viewing them for a short while before they tuck away again for next year. To be honest, they are very attractive images, in the same style as recent Google Now imagery, it would be a shame to hide them for eleven months out of the year.
If you like what you are seeing, head on over to the AmongTech website to grab them all.
If these Calendar backgrounds represent what we can come to expect from Google and others as the transition to Android 5.0 Lollipop and Material Design progresses, I think we are in for some great experiences and some beautiful app environments.
Do you like the new style of imagery coming out of Google these days? Do you have a cool source for backgrounds that you are willing to share?
