New app for Android handsets brings sophisticated geo-location technology to ordinary wallpaper images

“This is another in a series of announcements that show our commitment to innovation and bold expansion beyond ringtones,” said Myk Willis, CEO of Myxer.

Myxer, the go-to consumer destination for mobile entertainment and personalization, today announced the launch of GeoPix, a new app for Android handsets that brings sophisticated geo-location technology to ordinary wallpaper images. Now, whether a person is headed to work, class, or their favorite concert or sporting event, they can choose a physical location for an image they want as their wallpaper, and then have it “auto-magically” appear as they arrive at a destination. Setting a location is as easy as sliding a finger around a map, or typing in an address.

GeoPix makes use of Android’s geo-location and background services technologies to monitor a phone’s physical location. The app also features a variety of easy-to-use options including the ability to save any number of locations, as well as allowing users to search and choose images from either your phone or Myxer’s vast catalog of wallpapers. To download GeoPix for free, please search for GeoPix on an Android phone, or text GEOPIX to 69937 “MYXER.”
