NB: Major update! Please read Recent changes section if you are upgrading. If you experience any radical problems, or it's very small, please uninstall and reinstall or go to settings-->apps-->mystic halo and clear application settings. Should overwrite fine on most phones, except possibly some 720p phones like Galaxy S3. I am very sorry for any inconvenience, it will be worth it in the long run as I can add many new features.
WARNING: Keep old version with Galaxy Nexus, and Droid RAZR or any old phone (e.g. Galaxy S). Their GPU's are too slow for the shader. I will launch dual-versions from tomorrow.
==========================================================
A cool, honeycomb-inspired abstract live wallpaper. Blue, patterned rings slowly rotate independently and fade in and out. Touch Enabled, OpengGL. Works on Honeycomb! Watch the video for a demo!

New in v8: Optimized for new Galaxy S4, HTC One and Xperia Z !! (1080p phones)
New in v8: Fast color changes!

Coming soon in v9: Notifications!!!

I created this wallpaper because I loved the basic art used and wished it would move. I'm also a bit tired of so many live wallpapers that look very cool, but are too "busy" or colorful to make good long-term useable wallpapers. Art is courtesy Ryan Bliss of Digital Blasphemy: http://www.digitalblasphemy.com

Features (enabled in "Configure" or "Settings"):
* touch-enabled! Swipe up or down to spin the rings faster. Tap quickly to slow down again
* Lots of colours: blue, magenta, pink, red, green, "Tron", golden, ice, fire, "magblue", green and more! More will be added. Note that loading of new textures can take a few seconds. This is not a bug and will only happen once.
* Custom color slider with hue/saturation!
* multiple fade schemes: linear, heartbeat, pulse and none. Timings and brightness are settable
* sync schemes: make the rings spin in sync, alternating pattern, or random pattern. Control speed in sync and alt modes.
* special effects: "centre glows" or does not fade out
* change minimum fade value for linear fade style
* move the centre of the circles left/right or up and down
* shrink or expand rings
* change brightness

Has been tested on a variety of platforms. Works very well on WVGA phones (especially Galaxy S and Galaxy S 2). Scales correctly for Honeycomb (tested on Galaxy Tab 10.1).

Performance heavily optimised using OpenGL and good memory handling. Won't slow your phone down at all. Uses almost no battery life (check battery usage stats... less than your SMS app if registering at all)

Special thanks to "Deep" Live wallpaper dev and Robert Green for excellent OpenGL framework. I will open source this in time to contribute back. Special thanks also to Roland Harrison, Tim Chen and my other "beta testers" for letting me annoy them so much with testing. So many bugs caught!

Please support me with a good rating! I will respond to all direct emails. If you have a problem, ranting in comments is not a helpful way to sort it out!
**Known Issue: If you manually modify your DPI from what it should be then you will see white squares
**Note: trouble downloading, check this link : https://www.google.com/support/androidmarket/developer/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1067233
Android market-related known issue

Note: if you "upgraded" from free version, this is a whole new app. You need to reselect "Mystic Halo" not the free version from Live Wallpapers, i.e. your existing free version will not just suddenly be unlocked.

Thanks!

    Definitely worth the price. I was looking for a fun techy/Matrix-y background for my Android. Something that looked cool, but could fade into the background and stay out of the way. This app let me tweak and customize the settings to make that perfect background. Worth every penny!

    I mean it looks nice but it's completely off center and I can't center it 100% either, bit of a bummer as it took me more than 15 mins refund time to figure out it wont do what I want it to. I'll wait for the next update and hope it's gonna be fixed. 4 Stars for the looks alone though, really nice.

    The wallpaper is aesthetically pleasing. But unfortunately it's center offset function is somewhat skewed. The setup display will show the rings in the center of the screen. But when you actually set the wallpaper, they move off to one side of the screen. You have to manipulate the settings to actually get it centered correctly. If an update is released that fixes this I will be supremely pleased.

    Love the app! Not overly distracting yet fun to stare at lol. Color changing rings would be a cool feature. Basically what I mean is to have the rings change color as it pulses. Rather than being a fixed color. Still love the app

    It's an awesome live wallpaper that's great as itself and made better with the customization options. Customize the colors, the blink rate and more. Only drawback is battery usage which on my Galaxy S2 is quite a bit. Also occasionally, there is some screen lag when moving through screens.
