Welcome to the ......
attachment.php


What is this ?
This is a Live Wallpaper, that shows the current Battery Level in a "different" fancy way! It is customizable with different styles.
But it is not too fancy. I want it to match the current plain, simple and clean look of Android 4.4.

Read the feature on XDA Portal Thanks Guys! :)

Why this ?
Some of you may know me from my other thread "The Rom Fumbler". That is a tool to render and create Battery icons.
Now with Android 4.4 battery icons are drawn on the fly by some Java Class inside your ROM.
The good old 204 png's are gone. And it is much more complicated to modify your Battery icon.
Even more: Now we have "Immersive Mode", Pie and so on, making the statusbar invisible.

So I had some reasons to develope this app:
  1. My Rom Fumbler is a little bit useless at the moment!
  2. I want to have a good look at my Battery level all the time!
  3. I dont want to waste real estate of my screen with a battery widget!
  4. I wanted to dive more into android app developement!
  5. I wanted to have my Rom Fumbler icon-styles back!
  6. Good thing ...now I have much more space to draw my Icons!

Features

Congrats OlliG this app rocks installed on both of my phones note1 and 3 and enjoying your art. I am going to put this beauty for my next rom release if you wouldn't mind.

Brilliant app! [Suggestion]

Just downloaded your LWP few hours back and Im already in love with this. :)
Here is a small suggestion I would like to give for some future build.
I dont generally use LWP but instead I use Zedge to change my wallpaper every hour/day or so. And i assume there are a lot of people like me who prefer the same. I noticed a clash where in, when zedge updated my wallpaper, it turned off the BatteryWallpaper.
So my suggestion would be to create a compatibility with the zedge app or any such app where it keeps the battery percentage over every refreshed wallpaper.
Or otherwise, you could include a similar option of refreshing the BG image after every defined interval.

Apart from that suggestion, I believe this is a brilliant idea. Probably the ONLY LWP I would ever use! :angel:

Liking this idea, if only there was a way to use my own wallpaper and have the battery indicator as it is here (sort of an overlay of the indicator part over my own wallpaper kind of thing).

EDIT: Or maybe it does and I need to read more carefully?
