Chroma Wave Live Wallpaper v1.1

  - New Feature: Daydream support (4.2+)
  - Update: "Reset to default" buttons in prefs
  - Bug Fix: Resizing behavior on some handsets
  - Google Play link (paid)
  - Google Play Link (free)
  - Youtube Link

This one actually fell below the radar when we did our sweep to get everything updated a while back, sorry about that!  This update brings the product forward to the current version of our framework, and adds Daydream support on appropriate devices.  It also adds a few items to the settings screen to allow you to get back to the default colors and waveforms easily.

We also noticed that this is one of the only products that didn't have a youtube video showing its behavior, so that's been taken care of as well.

Prismatic Live Wallpaper v2.0

  - New Feature: App mode
  - New Feature: Camera support
  - Google Play Link (full)
  - Google Play Link (free!)

This is a major update that, like we did with Koi Pond, adds the ability to run as an app.  It also allows you to use the device's camera feed as an image, similar to Funny Mirror's functionality.  You can even do this while it's a wallpaper via a widget, a pretty unique feature to toy with.

This also allows you to enable child lock mode, so that you can let your younger kids toy with it and (mostly) not muck up the rest of the system in the process.  :)

Funny Mirror Free v1.1

  - New Feature: Fixed orientation
  - Google Play Link (free!)

One thing that was kind of annoying about this product was that as you were messing with the mirror trying to make a goofy image, it might switch from portrait/landscape in the middle of things.  That didn't seem like good behavior given the typical use case, so this update fixes the window into whatever orientation it was in when launched.

It's kind of a small item but makes it quite a bit more predictable to use, without actually enforcing any specific orientation.  Hopefully folks agree!

Funny Mirror v1.05

  - Update: Two new mirrors: Horizontal Wave, X-Shaped
  - Google Play Link (free!)

This is a minor update that cleans up the labels in the mirror picker list a bit, and which adds a couple new mirrors for your trouble.  The X-shaped one is pretty awesome!

Autumn Tree Live Wallpaper v1.4

  - New Feature: Bald Cyprus Tree
  - Google Play Link (free)
  - Google Play Link (paid)

This is a content update adding a new tree species, our first evergreen!  As usual, pick your colors and background to match.  :)

Halloween Live Wallpaper v1.6

  - Update: Better pumpkin highlights
  - Bug Fix: Resizing on some devices
  - Google Play Link

This is mostly a bug fix release meant to fix the resizing issue -- apparently we missed this one when doing the sweep for that a while back.  While I was at it I updated the pumpkin shader to improve their lighting a little and get them to feel rounder.
