    The have no practical use. I have been dead set against them. they use up memory and battery life. But you know Since I tried the water one, I've been spending way too much time watching the leaves float down my screen.

    I find myself randomly pressing the screen with the Nexus one.

    If you didn't know already, search Live Wallpaper in the market and there are several free ones there.

    They just make my app drawer laggy, so I decided against using them. Not sure about battery life though, since it uses the gpu to render

    I like the one Creepy Crawlies LivePaper. There's another free one called Breakout Legend Live Wallpaper. If someone can explain that one to me I'd sure like to know!

    Pledged against them. I like to use Launcher2 so I can have phone and browser on my screen at the bottom, and the two of those combined cause FCs.

    i'll have to check those out.

    I don't like them as well in general as it makes my launcher laggy and overall the phone is not as fast. although bb 1.1 is quite fast and no fc close yet.

    Haha lol when I had this as my wallpaper I always just randomly press repeatedly to watch all the colors lol!
    I agree with the OP their really not useful but for some reason I like em because it makes the homescreens more alive? lol

    Right now my all-time favorite is Starfield! :icon_ banana:

    "Right now my all-time favorite is Starfield! "

    This one should come with a "please fasten your seat belt" warning :)

    I tend to like the water one and the spinning planet is pretty cool..... I'm sure that it does tax the battery though...... but I like them
