Central Core Releases Two New Live Wallpapers: Lone Rider and Gnome’s Life

Central Core Releases Two New Live Wallpapers: Lone Rider and Gnome’s Life

Apr 18, 2012

Central Core Studios are back with a pair of new live wallpapers for Android devices that bring some stylish animation to that phone or tablet’s home screen.

First up is Lone Rider, which brings a motorcycle rider to the launcher background. Four different bikes, from an old-school chopper to new-school streetbikes, are available. The live wallpaper also automatically changes with the time of day, showing a sunset and night background along with the day theme. This live wallpaper is available in a paid version.

The other new release is Gnome’s Life, featuring the adventures of two gnomes named August and Nash. Watch them ride around the forest, dig through hidden underground tunnels, and perilously fly around on a windswept daffodil. The full version comes with all three scenarios, but the free version only comes with Riding Trip.

These wallpapers join Central Core’s collection of live wallpapers, including PlanetScapes and their Zombie Virus live wallpaper, all available from Google Play.

PlanetScapes Brings Intricately-Designed Alien Worlds to Live Wallpapers

PlanetScapes Brings Intricately-Designed Alien Worlds to Live Wallpapers

Live Wallpapers look fantastic, bringing life to screens that otherwise are static and lifeless. It’s one of those things that Android owners can boast that they have that iOS owners do not. However, some of the live wallpapers are just random moving lines and patterns, nothing more. For those looking for a more substantial and detailed live wallpaper for their device, there’s PlanetScapes from Central Core Studios.

This live wallpaper incorporates three different selectable alien landscapes as a live wallpaper: Avalon Falls, Sunridge Canyon, and Northern Tundra. Each wallpaper is a dynamic view of the landscape, and fully animated. Each wallpaper also has settings to customize elements in it, like the rate of snowfall in the Northern Tundra wallpaper, cloud speed in Sunridge Canyon, and the camera panning effects when switching between home screens. This is a very high-quality set of live wallpapers, and while there are settings to decrease the processor hit they will take, a powerful device is recommended when using these. A free version is available with just the Avalon Falls wallpaper, and a paid version with all three wallpapers is also available, both from the Android Market.

So addicted to Twitter that the time spent on the home screen is taking precious time away from time spent checking one’s tweets? Fret no more, fellow Twitter addict! Sparky Mobile has a new free live wallpaper that brings tweets to the homescreen. By setting it as the phone’s live wallpaper, this can be used to display tweets from the main timeline in 2, 10, or 30 second increments. The live wall paper can also display tweets on the lock screen, and can be used in combination with standard wallpapers already used on the phone. As well, links can be interacted with in tweets simply by sliding down when the tweet appears. Scrolling between home screens on LauncherPro is still relatively smooth while using this. Sparky Tweets is still currently in beta, and features like customizable themese and tablet support are forthcoming. Sparky Tweets is currently free from the Android Market while still in beta.
