If you’re an exotic fish lover and you adore Android, boy do we have a treat for you. aniPet Aquarium LiveWallpaper gives you the next best thing to having the real deal. This live wallpaper allows you to create your very own aquarium with the ability to choose from 114 different kinds of species of fish. While the developer promises more species will follow, they’ve allowed for up to 15 of your chosen favorites to be displayed at any given time. The application is extremely interactive and is sure to keep your little ones busy in the back seat for those long trips.
The app sort of reminds me of those Digi Pets, thanks to the added feature that allows you to feed your fish and watch them grow. You’re fully responsible for the well being of your beloved exotic species. Are you ready for that kind of responsibility? Heck, if your fish survives it to maturity, it can even produce offspring! As you can see, there are a ton of extras with this wallpaper. It’s one of the most interactive and detailed live wallpapers I’ve seen so far. Other features include the ability to change the speed of the fish, how fast they grow, what kind of food you can feed them and even sports the ability to tinker with light animations. Definitely check this one out if you’re a live wallpaper fan. Head on over to our popular apps database for more info and to snag the QR code directly from your smartphone.

Last week we showed you a great wallpaper application for Android called Zedge, where you had access to literally thousands of awesome vibrant wallpapers for your Android smartphone. Check out the post here and head here for the download. This week we’re taking a look at another wallpaper app gaining some popularity in the Android Market, it’s called “Great HD Wallpapers”. As expected, the app gives you a ton of options and categories for backgrounds and wallpapers to compliment that little expensive computer in your pocket. You can easily download, apply and share great wallpapers with a friend along with the ability to rate your favorite designs. I’m not quite convinced that the apps is ready to give Zedge a run for its money just yet though, especially when Zedge offers more than just wallpapers. They also offer ring tones and notification sounds.
I think Zedge definitely has the upper hand in the UI and navigation department. However, it can’t hurt to keep both apps on your device since both equally offer an array of categories that you won’t find on the other. For instance, Great HD Wallpapers offers a “Comics” category that Zedge doesn’t and Zedge offers a “People” category with popular celebrities. One feature I do favor Zedge over Great HD for is the fact that you can activate “Family Mode” if you tend to have little ones playing with your device from time to time. Some of the wallpapers are definitely not kid friendly, if you know what I mean. Ready to give it a go? Head on over to our apps database for more info and to snag the QR code for the download.
