Blue Skies Live Wallpaper v1.0

( Android Market link )
( YouTube link )

Consider this a counterpart to Thunderstorm.  :)

Blue Skies takes you soaring through fluffy white clouds, and has a very clean, serene feeling to it.  There's prefs for controlling speeds, cloud density and so on, and it'll show you how many unread text messages you have by drifting colorful balloons through the scene!  Or, if you prefer, it'll show you balloons randomly.  However you like it, really.

The text message thing is a bit of a silly feature, but I'm hoping folks like it.  They don't even pop in and out, they'll drift up through the clouds, hang around, then drift away once you've read a message.  It's quite elegant looking, really.

I really like how this one turned out overall, it works really well as a low key background, and is kind of relaxing to sit and watch.  Hope everybody else likes it too!

  1. I actually just bought this wallpaper. It's gorgeous. Might I make a request? I would love if this followed the same theme as some of the other live wallpapers from you in that there are different times of day. I'd love for the sky to get darker later in the day and maybe showed the moon at night.

  2. Understood! I'll likely have that in an update a few days from now.

  3. This is why I love Android. I have yet to have a bad experience with the third party developers. They are always friendly and responsive. Thanks for these great wallpapers :)

  4. Fantastic wallpaper... here's a video review:
