Dandelions Live Wallpaper
by: Adermark Media • 17
A field with dandelion flowers and blowballs. The downy seed heads sway in the wind while seeds fly in the air carried by the wind. Clouds and the sun move over the sky that shifts color dynamically according to the time. As the night slowly falls the moon appears clearer and clearer until fully visible at midnight. Sun rises around 6 am by the lower left corner and end the day with a magnificent sunset in the other corner around 6 pm.
Background scroll now works on HTC Sense 3.0.

- change rotation speed of the sun

- show/hide high clouds
- show/hide low clouds

- 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.
