Android Live Wallpaper: Shake Them All!

Android Live Wallpaper: Shake Them All!

Shake Them All! Live Wallpaper uses a realistic physics engine and g-sensors to display Androids (or other skins) floating around your homescreen.

  • Category: Themes
  • Price: Free



To apply this live wallpaper, long-press your homescreen. Then, the first thing you’ll want to do is go into the settings. Here you’ll have the option of the number of Androids, the size of the Androids, and the particular skin you want to use (currently there are over 100 to choose from). Next, decide whether you want a plain color or image as your background. Lastly, play around with the various sensors that influence how the Androids float/fall. Adjust the reaction to gravity, phone acceleration, touch, light, and sound.

If you’re concerned about battery usage, it may be beneficial to use only a couple of the available sensors, e.g. just gravity and touch. With those two active (and the others disabled), this live wallpaper only consumed 2% of my Vibrant’s battery life for the entire day.

Pros:

  • Sensor options allow scalable (0-100%) sensitivity
  • Over 100 skins to choose from



Areas for improvement:

  • Options/info on managing sensors to reduce battery consumption
  • Ability to flick the Androids around would be satisfying!



Conclusion: A fun, customizable Android live wallpaper!
