Generate Your Own Panoramic Live Wallpaper
Live wallpapers are always fun. No matter what post-Eclair version of Android your using, the pure novelty of such feature is pretty much enjoyed by all users. Extremely customizable and interactive live wallpapers such as the recently covered Ditalix are usually very resource-heavy and may not bode well for less-powerful devices. so it’s great to see an app called ‘Wallpaper FX 3D Panorama’ bringing simplicity back.
Independently developed by XDA Senior Member exisapps, Wallpaper FX 3D Panorama allows users to generate interactive live wallpapers with user-defined images and various customizing options. Perfect for scenes of nature, a panoramic view of the image is generated that can then be customized with dynamic distortions,giving the wallpaper a 3D, rippling effect. The strength and speed of the ripples are user-defined, as is the field of view of the image panorama. A simple and intuitive user interface is presented for users to set these various customization preferences, along with an interactive preview of what the live wallpaper will look like.
Wallpaper FX 3D Panorama brings simplicity and modesty back, yet retains the novelty of having live wallpapers in the first place. Exisapps has made Wallpaper FX 3D Panorama available for free on the Play store, so check out the original thread for more details.

I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
