About this app


To those of you who send me emails - I apologize for not answering all of them. I simply haven't had the time or energy the last few years.




From December 21 (2017) my OpenWeatherMap account will be suspended because the number of requests using my API key significantly exceeds the threshold of the free subscription that is 60 calls per minute.


If you need the weather sync you will have to use your own API key for now.


Forest Live Wallpaper is a nice, relaxing wallpaper with trees blowing in the wind and a sky that changes from dusk till dawn.

Don't forget to go into settings to turn on things like weather, multisampling* or the 3D parallax effect*, if you don't wanna miss out!
* Not supported on all devices.

Troubleshooting
How do I use this wallpaper on my lock screen?
You need to have a lock screen that can use live wallpapers as background, like Locker Master or something. You might just need to enable it in the launcher settings. When setting a wallpaper on Galaxy S6, e.g., you choose whether to use if for your home screen, lock screen or both. The one in the screen shot is part of the ROM CyanogenMod.

The screen is too dark at night!
There's a color setting called Night-time multiplier that you can change to a brighter color, making the trees and hills brighter at night. It's not the perfect solution, but it'll have to do until I (eventually) add a fix.

The weather is wrong! D:<
Make sure you have a location set in the location settings, then check if Recent weather data (via the menu in the weather settings) is available, up to date and for the correct location. If not, the weather provider is simply not accurate, but now you can change the weather provider.


Features:
- Day/night cycle that fades colors from day to night, in accordance to your location.
- Animated trees.
- Local weather (wind, rain, snow and clouds, so far).
- Parallax effect with several layers when scrolling.
- 3D parallax effect when tilting the device.
- Customizable colors and weather.
- Stars.
- Mountains.
- Simulated scrolling.
- Clouds.

What to expect in the future?
- Infrequent updates (I'm lazy -_- )
- More weather effects (visibility, lightning...).
- And a lot more planned!

This is the perfect wallpaper app. The customization is pretty extensive, you can use any weather api or just the default one. And it's not just "rain on" "wind on," there are a lot of different intensities for everything. The parallax effect can be changed, the colors of the trees, and the color of the night, and it pans across the landscape when you scroll to your next screen. There's more but you get the point. This really shouldn't be free this guy is an app philanthropist.

Awesome ×1000. Can change with the time of day, time of year, weather. Optimization is easy to use, and easy to revert if you choose settings you don't like. You can enter your time zone for live time (day, night, everything in between), and/or enter your general area for live weather (rain, snow, wind, etc). Holidays have extra effects which I really really really like. It's charming. Makes me smile. Sometimes I just stare at it for several minutes? It's the best! :D

My favorite live wallpaper featuring a pixelated horizon scene with beautiful purple and pink sunsets (my favorite kind) was abandoned, so I went looking for the next best thing. This might be it. It's just so relaxing. 😍😌 I haven't messed with the theming options yet; the default is perfect right now. The trees move perfectly and the background isn't the same all the time, which I do like. I can tell because the mountain isn't always there, though that feels like a bug to me. Still nice tho!
