I published my first live wallpaper not too long ago, but given the nature of Android's marketplace it rapidly disappeared from any useful list. So I figured I'd announce it here, just in case others are looking for a simple live wallpaper that looks good and doesn't drain your battery. It is mostly static with a bit of a time element. It doesn't respond to touches or anything other than time. Simple and clean, which is what I like
The live wallpaper is called "Day of Ubuntu", and is a port of an old background that used to ship with Ubuntu Linux several years ago. It's an all day wallpaper that slowly transitions to roughly indicate the current time of day.
It is written to be very light on CPU usage and scrolls very quickly (draws for scrolling are basically the same speed as a regular static image wallpaper).
Here are a couple of screenshots:
