Aquarium v1.9

 - New Feature: Particle-system based bubbles
 - Update: A bunch of optimizations

Most of this update is invisible, honestly.  Been doing a lot of optimization for high-object-count scenes and the library changes have been moved into Aquarium as well.  This gets it a couple of frames per second, but honestly it's high enough already that you probably won't notice.

The noticeable change is the addition of particle-based bubbles!  These are exercising a new system that is starting to work its way into the various wallpapers are updates are done, and feel a lot more dynamic than the old ones.

The original plan was to get better fish selection and a seahorse into this update... unfortunately other stuff got in the way, so that'll be in next round.


  1. from the moment I downloaded & PAID for the beautiful Aquarium Wallpaper it froze my Droid X. I reset the phone by removing hour later went to bed and this morning, phone completely frozen/locked up again! removed battery, logged back on and uninstalled program...and now, ironically, there seems to be a problem with the "network" issuing my refund. The payment transaction sure went through without one bit of a problem. What a SCAM!!!! Very disappointing!

  2. Please send me an e-mail and we can get this straightened out. If there's an issue I'll gladly issue a refund.

  3. Please accept my apology. I must completely retract my previous comment! It took a little over an hour but I received an email stating my refund had been issued. Network made a connection without my knowledge and automatically processed refund. Again, my sincere apology.

  6. I came here to say that I've downloaded nearly all of the Donation Live Wallpapers you have produced. I am in awe of not only the quality of the live wallpapers, but also how you are staying on top of bugs and always updating and improving on them. I've shown them to my friends and family and they were all impressed. Several of them with compatible phones have purchased as well, and a few want a new phone so they can!

    I appreciate all your hard work and your quality products, including the Generala game which I play with my son frequently as he is addicted to it. It is refreshing to have bought quality apps that are maintained/updated and improved upon all the time and that are not soon abandoned as I've quickly learned so many are. Frankly, to be honest, and other Android users won't like this, you could ask for twice the donation and I would gladly submit :)
