One of the first flowers to announce that spring is arriving is the snowdrop. Here they are gently swaying in the wind while bumble-bees fly in the air above. Clouds move over the sky that shifts color dynamically during the day and night. At dawn the sun rises and moves slowly over the sky until sunset around 6 pm. As the night falls the moon appears clearer and clearer until fully visible at midnight.
Background scroll works on HTC Sense 3.0, where wallpaper scrolling normally doesn't work.
While the free version is beautiful and fully functional, the settings are locked. The full version is highly customizable:
- number of plants
- angle of the ground plane
- height of ground plane
- number of bees
- set any time of day (colors and light change)
- or use dynamic real time mode
- wind speed
- set size and position of the moon
- set sun rotation speed
- show/hide sun
- show/hide high clouds
- show/hide low clouds
- silhouette mode
- use true color (24 bit)
This live wallpaper is OpenGL based. This means that animations and graphics will flow much smother than if it was using the CPU. It also means that the phone's CPU is not working, giving much less impact on overall phone performance. The wallpaper is only active when visible, so battery consumption is very insignificant.
