Photosphere Live Wallpaper v1.1

  - New Feature: Smart launcher icon
  - Update: Settings for pan speed
  - Update: Enable auto-panning

This adds a couple of handy prefs to control camera behavior, notably allowing it to automatically pan around the currently set photosphere.  It also allows you to set the sensitivy of the camera when responding to swipes.

Additionally, given that Photosphere doesn't have the ability to automatically cycle like Gallery does, making sure folks can easily make use of it when they have an interesting image is important.  To that effect, the launcher icon that previously took your to the home screen is now a bit smarter, and if you don't currently have Photosphere set as your wallpaper it'll take you to the preview screen instead, so you can go straight to setting it.  If the wallpaper's already running, it'll smartly go to settings.

Koi Live Wallpaper v1.9

  - New feature: Full screen mode!

Something folks have asked for many times is the ability to use Koi as a sort of 'toy', as in running it full screen without any icons in the way, and being able to interact with it.  This update adds that, and additionally the full version puts in basic access controls, so you can hand it to your toddler and not worry too much about them returning to the home screen and destroying everything.  :)

If you have child mode enabled, touch all four corners of the screen simultaneously to exit.  Otherwise, just hit back.
