Snowfall Live Wallpaper v2.2

  - New Feature: Influence snow direction by tilting device!
  - Update: Simulated scrolling on some devices

I didn't want to radically change the behavior of the product, as there's a ton of folks using it, but this version adds a fun new feature.  Basically, you can influence the direction that new snowflakes will fall by tilting your device!  This doesn't affect existing flakes currently so it takes a second, though I could look at doing that if folks want it.  :)

  1. I am glad that the scrolling on my HTC Desire S is working again. Became a lame wallpaper after the update to Android version 2.3.5. Did not scroll anymore. The changing of the snow direction is a nice feature. Could you also fix the scrolling of the "Blue Skies Live Wallpaper" still love it but has the same lame effect. Thanks in advance.

    1. Well, the problem is HTC intentionally disabled wallpaper scrolling -- most of Samsung's phones do this too unfortunately. This build contains a workaround that makes it more-or-less work despite that.

  5. I got a new phone for my birthday, and have only just now been initiated into the wonders of Live Wallpaper - I have purchased your Clock Tower, and got the Snowfall last night. I LOVE them! 'specially the Snowfall...I wish I could have it on my Win8 desktop!

  6. I really like this wallpaper, one of my favorites! I wished that their was an option to make the snowflakes more realistic rather than the fancy crystalline shapes; the artificialism of the flakes clashes with the realism of the scenery. Having the clouds slowly move in the background would also add a lot of depth to the wallpaper.

    1. The settings screen has a 'snowflake type' setting with a couple different styles in it.
