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!

    I really love this wallpaper, it's unobtrusive and relaxing and beautiful in its simplicity. I'd totally pay for a 'Nature Live Wallpaper' with different areas. What also might be nice would be some events such as a squirrel climbing a tree or something. But that might just be my love for Johnny Castaway speaking.

    Looks great and had no effect on my battery life. For some reason it is out of sync with the time (starts turning dark at 11:30am) but hopefully that can be fixed.

    This said, Settings do include an option to donate to the developer for his hard work and effort, which I also highly recommend. This is a true 3D parallax lwp with numerous themes and individual customization options available. This wallpaper is the only one on Google Play with these options for free, and I recommend using it over time to really see the changes that take place on your screen with

    It really gives your phone that nice simplistic feel while also telling the weather and time.
