Well it is a really cool app and would like to give it five stars, but every time I try to put background on even if I drop all other settings on it, it freezes up. Thought it was an amazing idea, but having rain drop pixels with a blank background.... Nope, I'm good on that and am disappointed because my nieces and nephews were looking forward to goofing with it on my screen after I had finished it. Can still, but I myself was disappointed.

Well put-together app. An update would be appreciated, but probably not necessary. Setting background causes app to freeze. Clearing app storage seemed to be only fix. Would give five stars for an update.

I've Loved this for years. Some phones seem to do a better job than others with this app and battery life. My last Alcatel was fine, 2 days of battery with this going. My new Revvl 6... One day. Without the live wallpaper 2&3 days on both devices.

What's new

Added market link to Pixel Suite in preferences.
Added toast ad for Pixel Suite that can be disabled.
Added option to manually change color of collision outline.
Temporarily fixed an issue where Pixel Rain would crash when attempting to create large background image. For the moment it will not create them instead of crashing. Use smaller images until fixed permanently.
