Who doesnâ€™t love a good wallpaper? Theyâ€™re one of the first things we customize on our mobile devices. Some people pick one and stick with it, others change them like theyâ€™re TV channels. Wallpapers are as unique as the individuals who use them. They represent our moods, thoughts, ideals, and just plain insanity. I mean if it werenâ€™t for wallpapers, app markets wouldnâ€™t have the ludicrous numbers they so proudly boast.
We’re now on our 4th installment and I might stop numbering them soon I swear. This week we use our phone as an aquarium, turn on hyperdrive and get ready for the Super Bowl.
Just a quick weekly announcement about live wallpapers and then Wallpaper Wednesday time!
Remember, live wallpapers can only be used with supported devices running Android 2.1+. I see a lot of people downrating live wallpapers in the Android Market because “it won’t open,” or “I can’t find it.” Live wallpapers aren’t like regular apps, they won’t show up in your app tray and they don’t “open.” You can access your wallpapers a couple of different ways:
- Long press screen>Wallpapers>Live wallpapers
- Press your device’s menu button>Wallpaper>Live Wallpaper
Please make sure your phone supports live wallpapers and you are familiar with how to use them before giving developers a bad rating. It really isn’t fair to them. Now let’s check out those wallpapers!
[Disclaimer: Live Wallpapers may cause excessive battery drain and/or lag issues and only work with supported devices running Android 2.1 or higher.]
