there are so many on the market. what are some of your favorite?
I've been using Starfield, it's really cool.
starfield, led scroller
starfeild and rotearth
Starfield - fly through stars, swiping screens change the direction the stars move kinda. Double tap = warp speed for a few seconds
DuckHunt - (it is called something else in the market, but I believe Duck is in the title) - Basically a picture of the sky, with ducks that come from the sides of the screen that move in a straight line, in different speeds to the other side of the screen. Diagonals are possible too. You touch the screen, it shoots, you hit the duck it falls to the ground. Not really a must have, but fun to show off.
Earth view (earth rot I think it may be called) - This is probably the craziest most complex one out there, so many options. Essentially you can chose the planet, with like 4 different views of earth (with live clouds, city lights...etc), or other planets and the moon. There are static backgrounds to go behind it. Then you have tons of options on how it rotates. The planet can rotate slowly or fast, depending on how you set it. You can make it freespin so if you flick the screen the planet spins all around, you can make unlock the Y axis (up and down).....many others I am probably forgetting too. This so far is my favorite one.
Substrate - This one is a pack, and all aren't interactive as far as I can tell. But they are pretty awesome. Basically depending on the one you choose, it draws completely random patterns over the course of time filling up your screen. Each one has settings, pretty cool stuff. I have used some of these over the course of my time with the live wallpapers.
Seeds of Life looks really interesting if your mind lives in the gutter like mine does. Not really sure if I would keep it on my phone for real, but I don't see why not. I think I would crack up the entire time I would be using my phone. I haven't purchased it to try it myself...but that brings me to my question.
Sorry about derailing the thread, but I have a random question though about this. Say your *cough* friend *cough* wants to buy a live wall paper (the seeds of life one hehe). In 2.1 ROMs you can see them in market, but in 2.01 ROMs they aren't visible. So what happens if you buy one in 2.1, then revert back to 2.01? Can you use the ones from market in 2.01 ROMs? I tried backing one up and installing it as an apk, and I get an error in 2.01 "Parsing Error There is an error parsing this package".
Thanks for that. Very cool.
Is there a black background with blue smoke? I saw a screenshot here somewhere and thought it would be cool if it were a live wallpaper.
thanks. those all look cool. does anyone have others?
also, i figured i'd try starfield first because everyone likes it, but there are two in the market. which is better?
seeds of life and rotearth
Live Waterpaper is pretty sweet. It either cycles through random pictures on your card or you can choose any one to stay, it then has interactive water like waves when you touch or swipe. It also has other options like using the gyro to create waves when the phone is moving. All for free.
I assume you are talking about one of the stock ones called magic smoke. It is green by default, but it can change to a few different colors and combinations.
No, it was someone's screenshot of their set up. I think it was another but basically the same as this one:
It would be cool if it were looping image of lingering smoke.
Well hell, I guess I could just ask that person
where you guys getting these?
