5 Must Have Android Live Wallpapers Part 7

5 Must Have Android Live Wallpapers Part 7

This is part 7 in our series of “5 Must Have Android Live Wallpapers” (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6). Note: Android live wallpapers are currently only available for devices running Android 2.1+.

Remember, to set a live wallpaper, long press your homescreen > wallpapers > live wallpapers.

1.  Droots Live Wallpaper

  • Version: 1.3
  • Size: 2.61MB
  • Price: Free* ($0.99-$1.19 add-ons)

Grow a variety of plants on your Android homescreen. Choose from 15+ droots (plant types) and 21+ settings (backgrounds) like a garden, city, or beach. Each unique add-on will run you $0.99 or $1.19. Each droot is initially planted as a seed and will take 2-4 weeks (regular seed) or 2-4 days (super seed) to grow fully. To plant, double-tap the soil. To view options for a specific droot, double-tap it. This menu will let you view a time-lapse rendition of your droot’s growth or enable other perks.

Would love to have the option to adjust super seed’s speed of growth to the scale of a few minutes or hours.


2.  SwampWater Live Wallpaper

  • Version: 1.1.0
  • Size: 295KB
  • Price: Free

Relive one of your first science/biology labs where you probably looked at pond water under a microscope. You’re sure to recognize organisms that are classified as algae, bacteria, or protozoa. The only setting you have the option to change is the color of the swamp water. One refreshing detail about this Android live wallpaper is that it does not ask for any permissions.

Adding other organisms like amoebas or planaria would make this live wallpaper even cooler than it already is, especially for the science nerds out there (like me).


3.  Nyan Cat Extreme Live Wallpaper

  • Version: 1.0
  • Size: 51.23KB
  • Price: Free

What would the modern day internet be without unexplainable, random crazes such as Nyan Cat? Now you can have Nyan Cat flying across your screen with its rainbow trail in tow. Shake your Android device to send Nyan Cat through a comet field or tap anywhere on the screen to shoot Nyan Cat’s laser eyes. Customizable settings include shake sensitivity, animation speed, rainbow trail style, star background, and more.

As another reviewer said in the Android Market, “delightfully useless!”


4.  Pockets Live Wallpaper

  • Version: 1.0.2
  • Size: 3.05MB
  • Price: Free

The Pockets Live Wallpaper features Roi the Raccoon, a cute, interactive pet that lives on your Android homescreen. Roi runs wherever you tap, follows as you switch between homescreens, and loves to be petted. He also has a mind of his own and will do random tricks, take naps, and be grumpy from time-to-time. The developer has said additional critters will join Roi soon.

Would love to have options for multiple background scenes.


5.  Puddle Drops Live Wallpaper

  • Version: 0.9.7
  • Size: 475KB
  • Price: Free

Puddle Drops is a water simulation live wallpaper with a default pool tile background and the option to use a background image from your gallery. Touching the screen creates a ripple effect across the entire image just as if a drop of water had fallen there. Settings include options to activate automatic water drops and scrolling background images. However, the ability to set the rate of automatic water drops would be a nice addition. Overall this Android live wallpaper is simple, realistic, and elegant.

Would be especially neat if shaking or tilting your Android device created additional ripple effects.
