Google's Creative Lab has released an interesting, and potentially super-helpful, new app on Tuesday called Meter. It transforms your boring, static wallpaper into a functional Material Design widget displaying either your remaining battery life, Wi-Fi signal strength or number of pending notifications. The widgets cycle whenever you turn off the screen so you'll never get stuck counting reception bars. But don't worry, the OS info bar isn't going anywhere The app is free and, being a Creative Lab joint, is open sourced on GitHub.
