Default [Live Wallpaper] Ownskin UGC -- Now you could add sound event

Hi We have just created some tools for user to create their own Android Live wallpaper, This are some sample of what we have created and I believe you could create something better.

-- New We added the ability to add touch event, if an screen skinlet is touch you could launch another skinlet. Making the live wallpaper react to your actions.

-- We recently added the ability for you to make the skinlet make sound with the recent upgrade.

-- Upgraded with TEXT capability, and Photo gallery.

To download the apk search for ownskin in Android Market.

To create your own content go to

A video demo of the capability of the Live Wallpaper creator

Comments and suggestion are greatly welcome

You could either make the size zero or make the brightness zero.

The first one is "Desire"

The wallpaper are created for each specific model, and hense not all are available for different screen size, We are hoping user will create the content themself the sample you see now are just but sample created to show what we are doing.

We are planning to release the tools to allow everyone to crate their own live wallpaper by the end of this month.

Please take into consideration that wallpapers made for the" Desire" will work with the nexus one/incredible/moto droid and a lot of other 3.7 inch screens. So please don't make the wallpapers phone model specific. And even if the screen size changes upto 4.3 the resolution is still usually 800x400.

Doesn't work for me. Well, that is, sometimes it works, but most of the time when I try to open or preview/customize a LWP, it doesn't show and give me a "check if your sdcard is properly mounted" error.
