Online reviews
Wave - a sweet Live Wallpaper app for Android (4.8 / 5 Stars) | AndroidTapp.com
A very nice live wallpaper.. Highly customizable, soothing, easy on the battery,.. Nice and unique addition to your phone' | playboard.me
crazy beautiful and probably makes your phone 6 times cooler' | androidstatic.com

Wave is not a simple photo background or video background live wallpaper. It is not limited to a specific resolution (i.e. FullHD or 4K) instead it uses the devices default screen resolution for rendering this in realtime.

To set Wave as your wallpaper long press your homescreen and select Wave from the list of backgrounds or launch Wave via the app icon from the launcher.

I'll start with the small issue I have with the app: returning to the home screen will sometimes cause the wallpaper to animate really fast for a second. It's kinda annoying and doesn't look great, and I'm hoping it's fixed by having an option to not to make the animation catch up to where it should be by adjusting the speed automatically. Other than that, the customization ability and feedback are great and you really feel like you get what you pay for. 5/5 if that issue is fixed.

Saw all the good reviews and thought "pssh, how good could it be, if it stinks I'll just get a refund". Paid, installed and set it as my wallpaper just to see it in action and my first impression was "wow, that looks awesome!!". I think I spent about 30-40 minutes going through all the options! There's almost too many options lol. I couldn't decide which I liked best but after going through it all I settled on "Sunset Legacy", Random color scheme, Under the Sea 2 background and RGB2 Overlay. LOVE the look on my Moto Edge with the waterfall display. My favorite live wall paper right now. And it wasn't till this very moment that while looking at the options I selected so that I could include it here, I just noticed the "presets" section with even more options!! Oh boy, here goes another 30 minutes to play with options lol. The only option I wish was included was to be able to set the FPS to 90 to match my display's hz. Other than that, well worth the $2.50

Used to love it. Latest update broke the wallpaper, no matter the performance setting I choose it runs at 2-3fps and looks awful. The "automatic fps" doesn't work. Saved my preset, tried a different one, same issue. Went to switch back to my saved preset and it's nowhere to be found, so preset saving also seems broken now. CPU is a Dimensity 1200, plenty of power. Will change review once fixed.
