Create Your Own Live Wallpaper on your Windows PC
Are you a fan of the Android Live Wallpapers? Do wish you could create your own but don’t know where to start with the coding?
Well, with XDA forum member Daneshm90‘s Custom Creator 2.4 tool for Windows users, you can create your own Live Wallpaper out of a bunch of images!
Based off the free customisable Nexus One Boot Live Wallpaper by Andres Schmois, which is available in the Market, Daneshm90 has wrapped it all up in a bat file. The tool lets you customise the wallpaper without any coding, lets you change the application name and icon, the package name and also supports up to 100 images.
For full instructions and some examples that members have put together, check out the application thread.

That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
