Review Minima Live Wallpaper
Customizable parallax wallpapers

Lots of customization options, neat parallax effects (in full version), different look
Free version very limited, takes time to set up
Minima Live Wallpaper for Android is a collection of wallpapers featuring colorful flat swipes and shapes, which in the Pro version have cool parallax effects when you swipe between different screens. For each one, you can change what colors it uses, and even the number of colors it uses. You can also change how much, and how, it actually tilts and shifts when you swipe between screens.
If anything, there are too many customization options here. It's also not possible to preview what it is going to look like until you've applied these settings. That said, there is a "Randomize" button if you just want to roll with it; and the level of control will certainly have its advocates.
The wallpapers are well designed, but setting them up is clunky, especially in the free version. You also miss the cool effects that might be the real selling point. You need to go into "theme manager" to download a wallpaper that you are interested in. Using the free version, you need to look through to find one that isn't labelled "PRO". Then after setting up your colors and so on (if you wish), you go to "Make a Wallpaper", to create a still image in your gallery for using as a normal wallpaper.
The wallpapers are well designed, even if the interface is a bit clunky. If you want a look for your device that is bright but minimalist, with just a bit of cool parallax effect thrown in; and you don't mind paying a couple of dollars for it; then this could be right up your street. Skip this one if you want something for nothing though.
