I’m not usually one to report on live wallpapers (our very own Joe Sirianni usually finds the best ones), but I found one tonight that I think is pretty damn neat. It’s unlike most live wallpapers, instead of fluid computer generated graphics it uses a hand drawn sketch-like in old school animation.
Reminding me of a flip book I did when I was a kid, A Moon Odyssey LWP, gives your android device a completely different and unique look than before. When you unlock your phone from a resting state you are presented with a hand drawn moon that appears to be in orbit. Once you swipe from screen to screen or press any where on the display, you activate the space shuttle and thus begins the moon odyssey. Following your finger placement, the shuttle traverses left and right and journeys closer and closer to the moon. I am not sure what exactly happens after long use, does the shuttle actually make contact? Either way, you should give it a test flight.
This live wallpaper is free and can be found in the Android Market or through the QR code below. You should check it out if you want to try something completely out of the norm and be sure to let me know what you think. Now don’t go getting your hopes up thinking this will be the most epic LVW you have ever seen, I just wanted to point out something completely original. I give the devs credit for thinking out of the box – nay, out of the universe!
