Update of Candle Live Wallpaper

Today we've updated 3D Melting Candle live wallpaper. We've added a new feature - a photo frame. Now you can select any photo from your phone or tablet gallery and put it into the photo frame of live wallpaper. Also, you can customize the shape of photo frame - it can be either rectangular or oval.
For users who wish to make their home screen look more mysteriously we've added a new type of book - a spell book.


  1. I am having trouble installing my own photo. It only occasionally works. This is true for both my Motorola Defy running JB and my HTC running ICS.

    Any ideas?

  2. I too cannot instal my own photo. The App just keeps saying the photo is not suitable. I have tried photos of different sizes (Megapixals) but it makes no difference. I am using an Asus Transformer T201 running Jellybean

    1. Thank you for reporting a bug. Could you please tell us do you use stock Gallery app to pick photo or something else?

    2. Yes I used the stock galley App and I have also used Astro File Manager, both without success.

    3. I also cannot use any photos from my gallery, I have tried photos of varying sizes but it simply won't select them. I am not even getting any error message. I have a Sony xperia Z1 compact using android version 4.2.2. Too late for me to get a refund.

WebGL 2 fur simulation

WebGL 2 recently became available in latest Firefox and Chrome so it was tempting to try out some of its new features. One of the most important WebGL 2 (and OpenGL ES 3.0, which it is based upon) features is instanced rendering. This feature reduces draw calls overhead by drawing the same geometry multiple times with altered transformations. It was supported in certain implementations of WebGL 1 too but required a certain extension. Most useful for foliage and particles, this technique is also quite often used to simulate fur.

Porting Android live wallpaper to WebGL

Now WebGL works in almost any browser, including mobile ones so it was tempting to try it out. We have experience in creating Android apps using OpenGL ES 2.0. We have released quite a lot of 3D live wallpapers with rich 3D graphics. They are implemented in Java + OpenGL ES 2.0 without using third-party game engines (such as Unity) or high-level frameworks (such as libGDX). This makes our apps lightweight and well-optimized. And since WebGL is based on OpenGL ES 2.0 process of porting live wallpaper to run in browser is quite straightforward.

Developer's notes V. Custom watch faces for Android Wear with OpenGL ES 2.0

As soon as Google announced possibility to create custom watch faces with new Android 5.0 for Android Wear, we’ve ordered brand new ASUS ZenWatch to develop watch face (I believe nothing can beat quality of this device for its price). We decided not to port any of existing live wallpapers to Android Wear but to create some completely new scene for it. This resulted in creating Axiom Watch Faces app which consists of 5 digital watch faces, implemented in 3D with OpenGL ES 2.0.
