    Hallo everybody,

    I'd like to introduce myself (Hi, I'm DiCon from Aachen in Germany) and my very first app: Coligma.

    [​IMG]

    Coligma is a particle based live wallpaper, that reacts to the accelerometer (gravity), the magnetometer (magnetic, compass-like particles) and your battery level.

    Well, I know, that there is something like that on the market (unfortunately I found it a few days before publishing my app), but maybe some of you like it anyway. Plus, this is still a good opportunity for me, to test the Android market. There is a basic version "Coligma Live Wallpaper" for free and a paid version "Coligma Plus Live Wallpaper" (0.75€), with only a small difference. Yeah, I won't make a fortune with this, but maybe I get back the Android developer fee...

    So lets start with some screenshots:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Coligma generates particles (of your choice) all the time, that follow gravity according to the accelerometer. Additionally you may tap (or drop an icon or widget) to generate additional particles of another (or the same) type:

    • Random
      Particles of random color
    • Battery
      Particle color depends on the battery level (0%-33% red, 34%-66% yellow, 67%-100% green)
    • Compass
      Red particles are attracted by north, blue particles by the south pole. (These are really "magnetic particles", which means, that they follow the magnetic field as it is. If you are not exactly at the equator, the earth's magnetic field is not parallel to the earth's surface and the particles may be dragged opposite to gravity...)
    • Red, Green, ...
      A color of your choice...

    ...and if you support me and invest 0.75€, you may set a custom background image. That's the only difference to the free version.

    Some last advise:
    • With its default settings, Coligma is meant to show off and uses quite a lot of resources. If you really want to use it, I suggest to deactivate the sensors in Coligma's settings ("gravity follows orientation" and "use magnetometer") and reduce the amount of particles.
    • If you purchased Coligma Plus (thanks for that ;) ), you should use dark backgrounds. Bright particles just won't do it on bright backgrounds...

    Now just search the market for "coligma" and have fun with the free version :)
    Or use this:

    I love the idea, however, the constant large moving particles give me a headache. If you would decrease the size of them, i would love to contribute to your fund:)

    @amber013188: It's done. The new version 1.2 has an option to select the particle size. I hope you like it :)
