New Concept for Live Wallpaper – Introducing Lightwell for Android
It is amazing to see how new ideas can be incorporated into already existing ones. Lightwell, created by XDA member dedeep is a live wallpaper that actually will display some useful information (in plain text) such as date, time, battery level, your current location (not just the city but the address), and how long you have remained in that particular place. The last piece of information is an interesting one as it has several potential applications such as location based reminders, and a few more things that are simply not thought of just yet. The best part is that this is not a widget, so all this metro looking information will be displayed without forcing you to give up any widget or shortcut real estate.
The dev is asking for some feedback about this, particularly on the usefulness of the “time at location” feature of this LWP. Please post some feedback if you have any.
I’ve uploaded my live wallpaper recently to the market.
Lightwell is a Live Wallpaper which displays

- How long you stay there already (UNIQUE NEW FEATURE)

Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
