Forest Live Wallpaper is a nice, relaxing wallpaper with trees blowing in the wind and a sky that changes from dusk till dawn.

Don't forget to go into settings to turn on things like weather, multisampling* or the 3D parallax effect*, if you don't wanna miss out!
* Not supported on all devices.

Troubleshooting
The screen is too dark at night!
There's a color setting called Night-time multiplier that you can change to a brighter color, making the trees and hills brighter at night. It's not the perfect solution, but it'll have to do until I (eventually) add a fix.

The weather is wrong! D:<
Make sure you have a location set in the location settings, then check if Recent weather data (via the menu in the weather settings) is available, up to date and for the correct location. If not, the weather provider is simply not accurate, but now you can change the weather provider.


Features:
- Day/night cycle that fades colors from day to night, in accordance to your location.
- Animated trees.
- Local weather (wind, rain, snow and clouds, so far).
- Parallax effect with several layers when scrolling.
- 3D parallax effect when tilting the device.
- Customizable colors and weather.
- Stars.
- Mountains.
- Simulated scrolling.
- Clouds.

What to expect in the future?
- Infrequent updates (I'm lazy -_- )
- More weather effects (visibility, lightning...).
- And a lot more planned!

    Brilliant app. I will have to wait and see the impact on my battery but if its minimal then definitely keeping. Like others have mentioned I would love to see a couple of different scenes to chose from, perhaps a lake. Also wildlife would be great, even if its the odd bird flying across the screen.

    Works just as described! It would be cool, however, if developer added different backgrounds, like a city, desert, Lake, etc. Although the forest and mountains change, it'd be nice to see different climates. Honestly, I would pay for it! Will donate if there is another update (I have a thing with updates and donations.)

    I am surprised to see that this one man team and pulled off something as intricate and customizable as this, he/she has made a truly incredible app. Best part is this is free, it doesn't yell at you to donate the developer makes it almost unoticeable that you can donate, he/she also caps the donate at 5$ so you know this person just wanted to make a great app, not looking for this to be their sour

    This is an astounding app. The attention to detail and little date related easter eggs are great. The fireworks on New Years and the star on Christmas, etc. are little things that really make this my favorite wallpaper.

    I was wondering which settings have the lowest battery impact.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this wallpaper. It is free (full functionality, the in-app purchases are donations that have no effects). It looks like Google Now with a materialistic wallpaper that has movement and parallax 3D, effects that can update with the weather, so it reflects your weather conditions. It also has a plethora of customization options like changing the colors, manually picking wea
