Smoke Play Beta – Live WallPaper For Android

Fans of Live Wallpaper might be interested to check out XDA forum member Juan Kerr‘s second app in the Android Market.

Smoke Play is a fluid solver driven Live Wallpaper and a stand-alone app – the effect is a simple but satisfying dynamic smoke.

Feature include multitouch, and a settings scene for configuring the level of smoke detail. The app is currently in beta and the devs ideas for future features include:

  • upping the iterations on the fluid solver for more powerful phones
  • define some cool pre-sets
  • coloured smoke that mixes
  • continuous auto-sources of smoke objects (draw shapes) in the path of the smoke
  • calculated objects field from the home screen icons (smoke collides with your icons)
  • an auto-config activity which scales the detail up or down to optimise quality on all phones
For more information, check out the application thread. Smoke Play beta is available to download free in the Market.
