Live Wallpapers

Android phones support a feature called "Live Wallpapers", which allow an animated scene (or even an application, with some work) to run as the desktop background.  We've created a number of these, with the philosophy that they should be non-gimmicky attractive backgrounds a step up from static images.

All of these wallpapers perform well and have a near-zero impact on battery life. We do our best to make sure that you're not sacrificing usability for a pretty backdrop.

How to use:

If your phone supports them, Live Wallpapers will have their own category listed when you go to your wallpaper customization screen (alongside "gallery").  On most phones, a long-click on the desktop will get you there, though some phones may require that you use the "menu" button at the home screen instead.

Our Wallpapers:

Currently, Kittehface has over twenty Live Wallpapers on the market, with both a free version and paid version in most cases.  In general, the paid version is exactly the same, but has a settings menu allowing the user to change colors, speeds, etc.  All wallpapers are sensitive to home-screen scroll, though generally more so in portrait than landscape layout.  All of them support both portrait and landscape mode.  No prerendered movies here!
