Gain Some Serenity With Nightfall Live Wallpaper For Android

If you’re of the Live Wallpaper variety, we’ve got one that promises to bring a little serenity to your home screen.  Nightfall Live Wallpaper for Android is a calm and serene background that shows a slight rotation of the stars above.  In addition, you can slowly see the moon making its way northbound, beautifully illuminating the sky.  The background is reminiscent of a couple sitting in a convertible starring up at the skyline as they watch a shooting star make its way across the horizon.  I love the contrast of the dark background, subsequently allowing your applications to pop out.  The free version definitely does the job, but if you want more out of your apps and you’re willing to part with $1.50, there is a version that will allow more functionality and control over stars, the moon and silhouettes.  Ready to give it a try?  Head on over to the Android Market via the link after the break to snag the download and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.
