Hello,

I created a simple clock live wallpaper application to demonstrate how to create live wallpaper on Android. Application is freely available here on Google Play Store : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ssaurel.clocklw

The tutorial is a video available on Youtube :



Tutorial starts from project creation and goes to test the result application. During creation, I left some bugs to show after first launch on emulator how to fix them :).


Source code is under MIT License and available here on Github : https://github.com/ssaurel/android-clock-livewallpaper


Don't hesitate to give me your feedbacks. I plan to make other video tutorials. So, if you have ideas, you can tell me :).

Hi,

I would say that it's a nice tutorial for beginners like me :) Although the video could use some commentary as an explanation of the steps. Otherwise pretty good effort, much appreciated.

Copy/Paste Assets

As a total noob I have a question,

This is my very first Android app and everything was smooth sailing up until about 1:20 when you copy pasted a few assets into your project. I don't have any idea where I can get these files or how to create my own if I need to. Do you (or anyone) have any advice on where to get the image .png file, the strings.xml and other stuff you copy pasted in? Otherwise great video keep up the good work!

Like said by kirito9, you can get source on github so you can get these assets files.
