Gate of Time Live Wallpaper

Gate of Time Live Wallpaper


The Gate of Time as inspired by Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword! My homage to one of the most memorable, timeless, and influential series of video games.

To set the wallpaper: Go to your home screen and long-click the background, choose Wallpapers->Live wallpapers->Gate of Time

Screenshots don't do it justice at all. The effect is entirely in the motion.

NO Airpush. NO Admob. NO ads of any kind. I don't want any of that garbage on my phone, and I won't subject users of my apps to it either just so I can make a few pennies per day from some sleazy ad company. Instead, to 'monetize' my work, I'll leave it up to my users: if you feel that I deserve compensation, grab my Tip Jar and use it to buy me a soda. :)

This wallpaper does, however have a SECRET FEATURE. No, it doesn't steal your personal data. And no, it doesn't track you using GPS. It's the kind of secret feature you *want* to have! I ask that if you find how to activate the secret, PLEASE don't post how it's done in the comments. Leave it a mystery for others to find! One TINY hint to find the secret: you *must* have sound on; it won't trigger if your phone is on vibrate or silent. Oh, and I guess I also forgot to mention: there are 2 ways to trigger the secret. The methods are *very* different. If you *think* you've found them both, you probably haven't. You'll know when you've found them both.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any issues such as excessive battery use or poor performance, and I'll see what I can do to fix them.

Let me reiterate: if you have an issue, EMAIL ME. A poor review and "Force Closes" doesn't help me one bit in tracking down your issue. I have no way of contacting you or determining what the cause is.

If anyone is willing to do translations into other languages for the settings screen and messages, please get in touch with me! I'd love to have everything in as many languages as possible, since The Legend of Zelda is internationally recognized.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A TESTER FOR NEW VERSIONS: send me an email or post something at this Google+ page for the app:

Have received a note that on HTC devices, sometimes battery usage is higher than it should be. After setting the wallpaper, reboot the phone and check battery usage again after a while -- it seems to have helped for some people.

It's really cool, I enjoyed a lot, but I still don't know to make the colors look like the las screenshot, to change the goddess symbols on green, blue and red and as well the triforce in yellow.

The scrolling feature doesn't work,and it would be nice if the color change could be done without opening the gate.Another complaint is the rapid tapping it takes to play the sound and inability to set the color of the symbols on the glyph separately.

Funny story about this... I got this before I even knew what this was, but I got it because it was Zelda. I later found out it was a spoiler for SS, so I deleted it. Fast forward 2 years later, I finish the game, and it took my number one spot in games, so I think back to this. I go to download it, but it doesn't let me anymore. Wish I kept it the first time.....bummer :(
