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 just had to make a donation when I saw the glow from the pot of gold! If I could give this more stars, I would. I enjoy my screen so much! Thanks. PS can we keep the rainbow?

    This app has always been one of my favorites; it works well, rarely crashes and the settings to co-ordinate with the weather and day or night of my area make it fun. Then today a rainbow showed up, leading down among the trees to a golden glow. Now it's one of my top five for sure,with 5 stars!

    I love how this looks & the options but recently it's been giving toast notification errors staying that it can't update weather. I have it set to the default weather provider and manual options off

    This app had been worthy of a 5-star rating until recently. Now the incessant toast messages about not being able to update the weather are driving me crazy.

    Dis shi is one of da best live wallpapers out there. Though there should be a setting suppressing weather update fail popup, since it's okay for me to be offline for most of the time.
