Portal 2 is a very popular game among the geek/nerd/tech community because it actually makes us use our brains. You don’t just go around shooting zombies or fighting dragons, but you have to test your brain power and be a wizard at problem solving. Everyone’s favorite character, Wheatley now makes his debut on Android as an awesome live wallpaper. (more…)
You can get a sense of how much people enjoy the look of Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich when developers and theme artists are actually inspired enough to create work that mimics it. A team of developers by the name of Team Gummy over at RootzWiki has gone ahead and created three individual live wallpapers that play on the ICS live wallpaper named Phase Beam. By replacing the floating spheres with icons, it’s just another way for people to create a look of their very own. Install as you would any 3rd-party app, but do note that from what I experienced, you can only have one installed at a time.
Note: For those who may ask, the icons I am using are called ICS Plates and they can be found here.
Cheers Gary, Kejar31, and Team Gummy!
A reader dropped Circuitry Live Wallpaper into our inbox just moments ago, and so far we are impressed. It has 6 color combinations available at this time, but it’s one of those apps we can see growing and allowing for full customization down the road. If you want your home screen to look like a matrixy-circuit board with style that changes each time you exit an app, I suggest grabbing this one. (more…)
Who knew that an Android live wallpaper would bring out my inner Prince?
So, Pixel Rain is by no means a new live wallpaper, but it’s one that every person with an Android phone should know about. It’s free in the market, gives you an excuse to shout out “I’m makin’ it rain!” at the club, and turns your phone into all sorts of wet ‘n wild pretty. The customizations here are as extensive as most of the other top tier live wallpapers, yet again, this one costs you nothing. Grab it, folks. (more…)
One of our favorite live wallpapers of all time is still Light Grid by Joko Interactive. The number of customizable options that were included made toying with your wallpaper an entertaining art form. So when we were informed that they had a new release on the way, but with 3D elements, we jumped at it. It’s called Exodus Live Wallpaper and it brings a lot of the joy you experienced through Light Grid, only with 3D blocks that can be tweaked to your liking. It’s interactive to touch, meaning the blocks change direction with your swipe. Live wallpapers, another reason we love Android so much. (more…)
The Pantech Breakout may be the first mid-range 4G LTE device (headed for September 22) that appeals to a specific crowd of non-power users, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have a sexy media file for us to enjoy. Thanks to our buddy Legion, we have for you the wallpapers, live wallpapers, audio (ringtones, notifications, alarms, etc.), and boot animation from the device. And I’ve got to admit, that this is one of the more enjoyable wallpaper packs we have seen on a device in a while – artsy instead of robot-dominatrix-world-crusher. The live wallpapers are also pretty polished (work nicely on the XOOM too), however, they appear to struggle to work on my Bionic or devices with higher resolutions. Feel free to test them though.

Our buddy Legion pulled a bunch of goodies from his DROID Bionic last night, one being the Red Eye live wallpaper. He deodexed and recompiled to make it work on any device running 2.1 or above. It’s interactive, has a couple of options that can be tweaked to hopefully keep your battery alive for a bit, and brings a piece of a phone that has been 9 months in the making to your home screen.
To install, simply download the file from above onto your phone. When it finishes, tap “Install.” Then back out to home and set it as your wallpaper. Enjoy!
