VR Tunnel Live Wallpaper is Purely Awesome

We were just sent a live wallpaper that instantly blew our minds and it’s called VR Tunnel “Free Edition”.  Yep, this bad boy is free and so much mind-boggling fun that you would probably pay $1.99 for it.  It’s so simple, yet so complex and entertaining that I think I just stared at it for 15 minutes straight before pulling away to write this post.  Enjoy.

    It took me a while to figure this out but it was worth it! Its actually just a slight alteration of the NakedDroidSeeThru Skin with the Minimalist weather skin.

    1. Install and apply the NakedDroidSeeThru skin (about 2/3 down the download skins tab)
    2. On the main menu of Beautiful Widgets check Hide Background
    3. Under Weather Skins select minimalist and apply that
    4. Enjoy!

    I love how when you turn on random tube color and then lock and unlock you phone that it changes color without delay.

  • Skunk13

    This is a very nice app, I just don't get why it needs network access. Max Byte says it because of the adds in the settings screen, but I don't see them. My data usage jumped on upon using this wallpaper, with no adds to be found. Concerning so I un-installed. This is hands down the sickest live wallpaper I have used. Too bad…

  • Abhi

    Works perfectly on my milestone which is not rooted<waiting for the 2.2 ota>and given that my stone is capped and droid has more juice, so ppl delete some crappy, offfff no use appln's and den try it'll work, and yes you end up staring at the screen for some good amount of time.

  • Djansen20

    how do i get this?

  • Vyruzx

    what is that clock widget/theme

  • speedbird

    [Q]: What is the dock that is used in the still photo?

  • Uplink

    TIPS: When u double tap on the screen it resets to accommodate the orientation sensor. So if it feels out of balance tap it and it should reset to whatever angle your holding it at. Also, if you tap the boxes they go out of place and slightly rotate, after that you will see the same boxes you tapped coming through the tunnel back again.

  • Running choppy and jumpy on my stock Droid X. Was running fine once but wasn't before or after

  • Works awesome on my DroidX so far. Smooth as silk. Looks real nice. I just have to remember to double-tap the center of the screen to center the tunnel. The randomizers are a great touch as well. Every time I wake up my DroidX from sleep-mode the screen is different.

  • timarnette

    I love this wall paper. I can play with it forever!!!!

  • Greg Abbate

    Where can i get that dock from?

  • e3pin0

    This is a great LWP..but it caused my D1 to lock up…maybe it's just me.

  • Be better if you can set the flying boxes a pics from ur gallery!!!! But still bad a$$!!!

  • Hey thanks for the awesome review! BTW, if you haven't figured it out already, you can tap on the cubes to make them spin. Tapping them multiple times makes them spin in different directions.

    BTW it looks really fast and smooth on that phone. If you want, you can hook it up to adb and watch the debug messages for the frames per second. (updates every 20 seconds or so) I usually get a little over 30fps on my N1. I'd be interested to see what that Droid is getting.

    • Shadez

      You did a great job with it!

      I appreciate it that it is free too. Thank you! If you update VR Tunnel with further abilities and/or objects etc, I'd be happy to donate a couple bucks for the updated version providing it remains running smooth as silk and stays pretty like it does now.

  • Bonix

    this thing is destroying my battery. after 5 minutes of having it on with orientation it drained 7%! another 5 minutes after i turned off the orientation it was at 12%…

    here it is a few hours after switching back to droid 2

      edit: this was on a Dinc

  • Hey

  • David

    Anybody know why it needs location and network access?

    • For the ads on the settings screen. Once I put the paid version up, it wont have that. I don't blame people for being cautious though.

      • David

        Hey, thanks for the reply! I was thinking that, but I didn't see any adds so I was scratching my head. It looks really cool, though. Thanks again.

  • mhynek

    Love it! All your Droids are belong to us!

  • Justin

    Is this another one of those wonderful •personal info• stealing wallpapers?!

  • thekpa

    Very trippy. Worth the download.

  • 1bad69z28

    This reminds me of that famous 1980's video game “TEMPEST”, LOL

  • Ill3haved

    i cannot find it after download… any ideas?

    • Shadez

      Go to settings/live wallpapers

      • mavalos

        still cant find it
        there is no Live wallpapers section on my settings

  • what launcher is he using

  • what launcher is he using

  • josh1980

    Is the beautiful widgets different on the DX than on D1 because I can't figure out how to make mine smaller like Kellex has on his DX? Any help is always appreciated.

    • zooger3500

      There's a smaller version included in Beautiful Widgets. Add the Beautiful Smaller Home Weather widget instead of the Beautiful Home Weather widget. It should save all your visuals and settings.

      • josh1980

        Thank you very much. Do you know how ro change the icons like Kellex has?

  • Its a cool live wallpaper, runs great. Down side slows down my phone like crazy.

  • It looked really cool and was totally fast and smooth, but it made my phone get really hot after only 2 minutes. I had to uninstall it. 🙁

    -Droid X

  • For some reason its not centered on my X like it is on yours kellex… what's up with that

    • Never mind hahaha… read down the page if u double tap it recenters itself

  • tonytbone7883

    Nice wallpaper but after a few seconds it made me noxious. I had to go back to D2 eye.

  • JimmyD

    Wow, this LWP reminds me of the classic arcade game TEMPEST!

  • Jdstell

    Okay. that is an awesome wallpaper, but I could only use it for 5 minutes before I began to go insane and had to remove it.

  • brandonmee

    Well this is the first live wallpaper I may actually stay on my screen for awhile….there goes my battery. It is more of a toy then a wallpaper.

  • Jdstell

    When you first start the video, I was like, “What's the big deal, that's stupid..” Then you started to move the phone around and the tunnel began to move based on the orientation sensor and it “blew my mind”!!

  • WhereIsTony

    I love that shortly after posting this it became appaware's most downloaded app in the last hour.

  • GNO

    This is FANTASTIC! It would totally rule if you turn off the squares altogether and just have the 'gravity well'.

  • fhf

    Jiggle your phone up and down and left and right. I guarantee you'll give yourself a migraine!!!

  • Tavist7870

    off topic. Kellex, what launcher are you using?

  • Timoh

    Sorry for the annoying question but can someone point me to a proper barcode scanner. Thank you.

    • Doolidg

      How about….. Bar code scanner :-O

      • Timoh

        Thanks that worked. I intially did a search for QR scanner and downloaded one that sucked. Didn't want to try a bunch of crap ones when you guys already know what's up.

  • Pog-Mo-Thoin

    This LWP is really sweet, but why do I feel like I am being hypnotized by this thing? And why do I suddenly have this urge to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia when I hear that song “Relax” and want to smash my wife's iPud?

  • Hey kellex, the motorola 2.2 support page has been pulled again u think there's veen another halt http://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/

  • Does anyone have this and does itbwork alright on a non rooted D1?

    • Guest

      YES! 😀 It looks amazing.

    • It worked great on my non-rooted droid. It ate the battery life up though~

  • FYI… tapping on the screen reset the orientation

    • BluuDev

      double-tap. Nice find. Took me about an hour to do it accidentally.

  • David

    Sweet! I have had lag issues with other Live Wallpapers, but this one seems to be pretty quick. Love it!

  • Smallsz

    This is epic! If you double tap the screen it re-centers/orients itself.

  • Dom

    what is that clock/weather widget?

    • acquaz10

      beautiful widgets.

      • mlwinans

        just has a different Skin than the stock one.

        • Vyruzx

          what skin though?

  • DZmedia

    Its cool but its kinda glitchy.. does not do the greatest job tracking the motion of the phone

    • Cschoeps

      yea, I'm having this issue too. Very choppy and inaccurate. Hmm…

      • BluuDev

        For those complaining about the chop…are you using a D1 or Eris or something? did you see in the Market description that it “probably requires at least a Snapdragon processor?”

        • Cschoeps

          Ahh, I did not. I'm on a D1. Thanks for the heads up.

          I'll read next time…

          • BluuDev

            that being said…it is working fine on my D1…I am rooted though…didn’t notice much degradation when i slowed it down to 400 MHz max…froze at 125 max. Hopefully the novelty wears off quickly as I’m sure it’s a battery drain.

          • Cschoeps

            Interesting…I”m on Sapphire 1.0 with 800Mhz kernel, and it’s not so smooth.

        • Flyinion

          Running very smooth on Sapphire 1.0 with 800Mhz kernel. Just going to keep it around to make friends jealous, see it as too much of a drain to keep on 24/7

          • Cschoeps

            Are you on D1? I have the same build and am having some issues…

          • Flyinion

            Yep D1, Sapphire 1.0, 800Mhz LV kernel with SetCpu profiles set as per droidforums.net overclocking FAQ and the internal governor in Gem Settings shut off.

    • Eric

      No problems on my Dinc.

    • Dean2359

      works fine on my X

    [JD]

  • Is there a reason it needs to have full access to the Internet?

  • Davo376

    Quick question…. What weather skin pack are you using in the photo? I like and want to download.

    • beautiful widgets….

      • Davo376

        thanks, but i know its beatiful widgets. i have it running on my phone. what i am looking to find out is which of the downloadable weather skin packs is giving that image for the current weather. anyone know? thanks in advance.

  • Shadez

    Boxes also rotate when you touch them..

    • Dwl137

      Yep, you can touch the boxes on the screen and drag to rotate them.

  • Tom

    That is crazy!

  • xFenixKnightx
