Anyone have any gems?
Getting sick of the ones I have now (stock)
IN for more live wallpapers as well please.
Save battery, don't use live wallpapers..
There's a few free from the app store. Try the aquarium.

As cool as live backgrounds are to show off to friends, I can't bring myself to using them again after jumping from 6h of battery life to 12h by turning them off.
I second that
I like the aquarium. My battery works just fine too.
I like planet rot, but also don't use them often beause of the battery issues but every now and then I turn one on.
i've sideloaded driod 2, city at night and driod x live wallpapers. All free and work nice. I just use them to show off to all the ifruity users. Went to a party last night & about half the people that had phones were iphone users. I pulled out my captivate and played a video i shot at the doctors office of my daughter getting her shots......people were like...."That's a huge screen"!!!!
I was like....."Yup....got rid of the iphone for this bad boy. Samsung Captivate....Remember that name".
AndWobble is kind of fun to show off, but you have to get the paid version to be able to change the wallpaper which is kind of a bummer. Only 99 cents, but still.
I use the seeds of life:

I don't really understand this. I've never had a live wallpaper use more than 2% of my battery. If 2% is making or breaking your experience, then fine...but having an extra 2% more time at the end of my battery life is not a game changer for me. The live wallpapers bring me far more joy than that 2% ever will.
Being an electronic tech I prefer to use aCircuit Board for my live wallpaper...

I've been using Live Wallpaper from day one and never had a problem with it sucking the life out of my battery.

As for battery life, I bought 2 extra Samsung Galaxy S OEM batteries + wall charger for $11 through Ebay. Now I carry a full extra battery with me and don't worry about battery life anymore. What does Iphone not have? Swappable battery. Smart to use this advantage with the Captivate.
I have Red Eye Scanner now. Might have to check out the others. That spoog wallpaper is LOL!
So, people keep saying live wallpaper kills the battery....How can that be? I'm assuming LW doesn't "run" when the screen is locked or an app is in the foreground. I spend very little time on the home screen, so would LW still be a battery killer?
I'm using Silhouette. Beautiful and not too busy.
