Light Grid live wallpaper is hands down my favorite of all time and I wasn’t sure it could get any better, and then today through a new update, it did. You will find under themes and in shapes, our favorite robot to play with in any way you please. You can see from my two screenies above that I went with the classic DroidLife pink and black, but know that you can make it any color scheme you like.
Seriously, if you don’t own Light Grid yet, you need to buy it now. It’s $.99. Oh, it looks like you may need the holiday pack as well to unlock the theme and icons and that will cost you another $.99. Trust me, it’s so worth it.
Our buddy Pete Alfonso, who gave everyone the first Gingerbread keyboard port is back, only this time with one of the new live wallpapers from the Nexus S. The live paper is called Microbes and is a fun replacement for the Nexus light bar one we’ve seen so often. It’s interactive, looks pretty and seems like a mesh between a Galaxy S paper and one from the original Nexus device.
Update: Here is the .apk version for ALL users courtesy of @Haxzamatic! (Download)
1. Download the file from above and drop it on your SD card.
2. Boot your phone into Clockwork Recovery.
3. Choose “install zip from sdcard.”
4. Then “choose zip from sdcard” and find the MicrobesLWP.zip file.
*DROID X and 2 users, you will need to go into “mounts and storage” and “mount system” first.
Been wanting that new Nexus live wallpaper that comes with Gingerbread and the Nexus S? You are in luck! The amazing minds over at the XDA Forums have released it as an .apk file, but only for those of you that are rooted. You’ll want to make a backup of your LiveWallpapers.apk file which is located in /system/app as this will replace it. Also, Blur phone users (Droid X and 2) may have to go into “mounts and storage” and “Mount System” if you choose the update.zip method below.
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.
I love live wallpapers, but even this new one might be a little too geeky for me. (Maybe.) The aCircuit Board live wallpaper has launched and shows you what the inside of your phone could possibly look like, only on your screen. It’s fully interactive, changes lights when you toggle on or off certain settings, gets crazy lit up, and costs about a $1.13.
It appears now as if the Mario Live Wallpaper has taken the Android world by storm and I had no idea it was something new! So I’m sorry if this appears to be about 2 days late, but when I got the tip on it, I simply said, “Whoa sweet!” while thinking it was something old. Man, do I feel dumb.
To everyone that hasn’t already seen this and was at one time a video game machine, you need to head to the market immediately and download the Mario Live Wallpaper. To bring back the memories of our childhoods, this app showcases Mario in all his 80s glory, going level-by-level on your home screens.
We knew it was only a matter of days before the Droid X Eye live wallpaper was ported to the rest of the big dog Android devices. This is the live wallpaper with the scary Droid eye that follows you as you swipe between screens. It’s pretty much the most fantastic live wallpaper available. And as you can see from the screenshots above, there are a variety of colors to choose from instead of just the standard red.
1. Download your color of choice.
2. You may need to download via PC and transfer over through USB.
3. Open Astro File Manager and find the file you downloaded.
4. Tap on it, select “Open App Manager.”
5. Select “Install.”
6. Once it finishes, back out to your home screen.
7. Select Menu>Wallpapers>Live Wallpapers>DROID X
