Top Android App: Celestial Bodies Live Wallpaper

Posted on Sep 6, 2010 in Themes, Top Rated Apps | 2 comments

Celestial Bodies is a 3D live wallpaper depiction of the solar system.

  • Version: 1.0 (Beta)
  • Size: 414KB
  • Category: Themes
  • Price: $0.99



Like our Force Fields review earlier, this live wallpaper is for the astronomy/science nerds out there! First off, you can choose between a view of our solar system, or have a solar system randomly generated. A few of the settings you can customize are the orbital speed, your preferred view, and for music visualization. When you’re on your homescreen, tap the screen to cycle through the available views. If you’ve got a specific view that you only want displayed, make sure to un-check the “tap view” option.

If you’re worried about phone performance or battery life, there are render settings you can play with like the amount of planet detail displayed, whether or not background stars are shown, and the frame-rate limiter option.

Pros:

  • Quality graphics for use as a live wallpaper
  • Accurate solar system depiction
  • Multiple viewing options and customization settings



Areas for improvement:

  • May get cluttered, but adding moons would be a fun option



Conclusion: A great live wallpaper to add to your homescreen background repertoire!

Posted on Aug 29, 2010 in Themes, Top Rated Apps, Uncategorized | comment

VR Tunnel Live Wallpaper is a motion-sensitive, holographic-effect of flying colorful cubes!

  • Version: 1.0
  • Size: 99.89KB
  • Category: Themes
  • Price: Free (Max Version: $0.99)



Note: The prerequisite for all live wallpapers is that your phone must be running Android version 2.1+.

The lite version of this app is limited to 3 colors and has fewer options than the Max version. After applying VR Tunnel as your live wallpaper, you can tap the cubes to make them rotate. If you’d like to re-center the holographic effect (which readjusts itself as your phone’s orientation changes), just double-tap the screen.

This live wallpaper is another fun app to add to the collection of the 5 Must-Have Android Live Wallpapers. You’ll definitely have all non-Android users envious of your phone with live wallpapers like this one.

Pros:

  • Unique 3D holographic feel
  • Options and settings galore



Areas for improvement:

  • Additional shapes?



Conclusion: A definite addition to the list of must-have Android Live Wallpapers!
