Electric Sheep Live Wallpaper

Electric Sheep Live Wallpaper


The official Electric Sheep application for Android, and winner of a ZKM app art award! Infinite updating live wallpaper as well as interactive app, animations created by a cyborg mind consisting of 450,000 computers and software. The only wallpaper with animated and evolving Fractal Flames. Excellent for meditation, relaxation, and visual dreaming at any time.

It comes with 200 download credits built-in (twice as many as in v1.4), each good for one sheep. After they run out you can get more credits with an in-app purchase (for half the price). After downloading the initial flock, you should get a few more each day.

The app is specially designed to minimize power consumption. With normal use it should have no measurable impact on the battery, however when it's first installed and is downloading the initial flock it takes more power. It has an option to only download when on a WiFi network, in case you have a limited data plan.

Once you install and run it, tap the screen to bring up the status overlay, or hit the menu button to see the main commands, including the preferences where you can change the speed (FPS).

By default the speed is set to slow so it's not too distracting and doesn't use too much battery. If you want it to go faster, use the preferences. You can also set it to stop running when your battery gets low.

Note: the sheep that you download are saved on your SD card. You can back them up yourself, and share them among your devices. But if a device is wiped, the sheep on it are lost. You can restore the app, and it will come with points that you can download new sheep.

Recent changes:
v2.1: UI polish and small bugfixes.

v2.0: Fixed memory leak for smoother playback and less power consumption.

Holo UI (menu button moved onscreen, preferences panel redone), new icon, loop lock interface improved.

Tapping on bkg while paused causes jumping bug fixed.

No new sheep Won't download any new sheep and the sheep are extremely short. I really do love the pc version but the mobile one is kinda sad.

Downloads don't work so you don't get new sheep.

Fix the bugs I've increased my storage limit, set the app to download new sheep at any time, and have download credits, which is a good thing since the app hasn't updated its payment method, making buying new credits impossible. Yet I can't seem to get the app to download new sheep. I would give five stars otherwise.

I love fractals. This is so worth buying. It's not perfect but still very enjoyable of you're into this sort of thing.

Long time ES user I've been putting my son to sleep for a while, with videos cast to his TV. Classic lullaby music and fractals. I remember zoning out to my Electric Sheep screensaver as a teenager, and wondered if they ported it to Android. So glad I looked. The fractals on the lullaby videos move too fast, and sometimes that can be too stimulating for someone "on the spectrum". I'll be casting my device to his TV, with Google Music in the background. I hope he loves it as much as did.
