Here at Android Apps Review, we have the lovely privilege of being able to review some applications that just aren’t available on other platforms. Most noticeably, that includes the “live wallpaper” genre of titles.
For our full review of this excellent, free pseudo-game for your home screen, scroll on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
At first glance, you might genuinely think Full Throttle a game. With it’s speedy graphics, high-flying action, and overall attention-grabbing appeal, it’s an easy mistake to make. However, it just isn’t.
You see, Full Throttle is actually a live wallpaper. That is to say, it’s a utility designed to add a bit more wow factor to your springboard—that’s the place where all the apps live before you boot them up.
What is Full Throttle offering specifically? Essentially, it turns you into a Top Gun pilot every time you scroll past.
The app lets you choose between several different cockpit varieties, as well as a few unique city landscapes. From there, it takes care of the rest: Sending you hurtling through the concrete canyons with every glance.
It’s extremely engaging, and though the screenshots included here show the app without any icons on-top, we assure you that it looks much better with your springboard in place.
All in all, it’s a unique and inventive wallpaper, and one we certainly enjoyed. And when it comes to concept / functionality, there’s not much more we could ask from Full Throttle than that!
Design and Graphics
In fact, the only places where Full Throttle truly loses some points have to do with its design. It’s not the absolute best looking live wallpaper we’ve ever seen, and in our humble opinion, it might actually clash with some hardware.
If you’ve got a super sleek, sexy looking Android phone, the jagged graphics presented here with Full Throttle may not match the minimalist aesthetic.
That being said, it’s hardly the worst wallpaper we’ve ever seen, it offers more than enough appeal to make it worth a look!
If you’re at all into flying, you’ll want to see what this badboy is offering.
And at the end of the day, it’s impossible to knock an application that’s completely free in the Google Play Store. Full Throttle won’t cost you a dime to enjoy, and for that we are truly grateful.
Full Throttle Free is a no-cost, good-looking app that will liven up just about any phone’s wallpaper. And at the very least, we here it will keep your children entertained for quite a while to come.
To sum it up, you’ve got nothing to lose by trying Full Throttle Free, and perhaps a whole lot to gain.
Full Throttle Free requires Android 2.3.3 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
