Now on the Market!

9/13/10 - New update!
The Max version now supports album art! You can choose to skin the cubes with your album art. It will automatically cycle through all of the album art on your SD storage. I'm working on an update to support those of you with internal storage.

market://details?id=com.wallpaper.VRTunnelMax - Full paid version

market://details?id=com.wallpaper.VRTunnelLite - Lite free version

I've removed the apk from here. If you already have one of the test versions installed, please uninstall it and get it from the market. That way you'll be able to get automatic updates.



To Do List
Short term:
Possibly implement some sort of color cycling so that the cubes change colors while it's running.

Long term:
User selectable textures
Pulsing when music is playing
Custom models - imagine instead of simple cubes, it was a bunch of Android robots

Thanks to everyone here for helping out with the testing!

Instructions:
If you've clicked on the about bar in the settings, then you've already seen these but I should include them here as well.

The tilting motion works best when the phone is in a relatively horizontal position.
Double tap the screen to re-center the tunnel.
Try tapping the cubes multiple times to change their rotation.

LOL, the 3D effect actually looks better in the video than in real life, I think.

As far as battery, I'm sure it takes quite a toll while it's on because the motion sensors are pretty power-hungry but you can turn them off in the settings if you wish.

I know this is the nexus one forum. But just as an FYI it doesn't work on my stock 2.1 telus milestone. All the cubes and the tunnel are white, regardless of the settings selected.

hmm, ok. Is the Milestone is the same as the Motorola Droid? If so, I can think of a few things to try for the next release...
