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.

However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
