Snowfall Live Wallpaper is a great choice for Christmas time
One of the great things about Android is that you have the ability to set a live wallpaper as your background. There are many different ones to choose from, but since it is December, Snowfall Live Wallpaper is my number one choice. There are two different versions of the app, a free version, and one that costs $0.99 US. The free version is just the plain background with no options. It looks nice, but there are lots of great options to make the 99 cent version worth it.
The video above is of the paid version, and shows how the background changes depending on the time of day. You can choose to make it stay on any one time of day, of cycle through them very quickly if you like. There are options to change the colors of the lights on the trees, and also whether there is an aurora effect or not. You can also add some Santa sightings if you wish, and those sightings will be more frequent the closer you get to Christmas.
One thing you need to be aware of with live wallpapers is how they effect your battery life. I would never put a live wallpaper on my phone because my battery would never last the day. I’ve found that with my tablet I can keep a live wallpaper on it and am not bothered as much by the battery drain. So if you are looking for a live wallpaper to get you in the holiday spirit, give Snowfall Live Wallpaper a try. Make sure you are getting the right version because there are two completely different apps with the exact same name in the Market. This one is made by Kittehface Software.[Snowfall Live Wallpaper]
