  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    Details: Hacker Live Wallpaper

    market download Hacker Live Wallpaper
    A live wallpaper of binary sequences streaming down your screen. Should make any hacker feel at home.

    Worried about battery life? This wallpaper is highly optimized so it uses the same amount of battery as any other regular live wallpaper despite the constant animations.

    Now with customizable settings! Now also supports the characters from the Matrix! Try it out by clicking on the "Character set" setting.

    You can either set the wallpaper in the Android settings, or click the "Set as wallpaper" option in the app itself.

    This project is open source and available at https://github.com/gsingh93/hacker-live-wallpaper. If you use the code in any of your projects all that I ask is that you let me know by email.

    If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, email me. If the app crashes, Android will ask you if you want to report it or do nothing. Please report it, it helps me figure out what's wrong. Emailing me after reporting it is the best option.
