    Anyone else unable to find/buy a live wallpaper that is more appealing than the ones that came loaded on this phone?? I keep going back to the Ocean Waves one!

    I downloaded two different aquarium ones (I'm a fish geek). One paid, one free. Neither comes close!

    Just type live wallpapers in the market. Also, google "best live wallpapers" and see what comes up.

    Nexus Revamped is neat and what i have been using lately. Good number of options to change how the thingies look.

    Also, i think someone yoinked the live wallpapers out of the Droid R2D2 and there is a Falcon flying through asteroids that is neat. Short but neat.

    Personally think the Thunderstorms one is pretty snappy. Rain and lightning. From KitehFace Software. They have both a free and paid (gives lots of settings).

    Does that app work for anything besides the Droid2? I've been reading on the net it's not working for most people.

    Do the live wallpapers eat up the battery more?

    My wife really wants the Ocean Waves wallpaper from my Epic on her Evo.

    Anyone know if that one is available for download anywhere? Or, know if it can be copied from my phone over to hers?

    I'm going to have her check out some of the other ones that have been mentioned here. Some of them might make her decide she doesn't need the one from my phone.

    Yes, the absolutely do. How much more depends on how well they were coded. There are some poorly written live wallpapers that can really eat up your battery.

    It is available for the Evo but it is a little laggy, even with the fps fix on the Evo. I used it a couple of days but it makes swipping from page to page a little slower.

    I still keep coming back to the Ocean Waves one. :)

    Anybody else notice that most wallpapers that weren't created specifically for Epic look grainy and cheap? This killer screen makes low res stuff look like crap when there's higher res stuff available preloaded on the phone!

    The Droid2 R2D2 live wallpapers look like junk... Now the static papers are just about awesome.

    here's my home screen with anipet aquarium. there's a minimum power usage option, so it uses 2-3% battery with 12 live fishes.

    You can't find the Mario live wallpaper anywhere. I've tried 2 QR codes for it with no luck.
