Break away from the common and dull. Change up your home screen by creating mesmerizing waves that dance on the screen. Customize everything, from the color to how the wave move. No matter how you choose to express your personality or mood, the vast selection of options will not disappoint.

Start out with a preset. There are a variety of available options, including "Electricity," "Shadow," "Rainbow" and "Sunset." Change up the background using vignettes and gradients. Try out a bunch of color themes. Feel free to go for your favorite hues. Add texture and drama to a wallpaper's look by adjusting the "Overlay." Go for the grainy, grungy or dotted.

▲Have a wave dance on your home screen. Add beauty and movement!

▲A wide range of settings to tinker with to create a truly personalized wallpaper.

▲Switch up the "Color Theme" and "Overlay" for more variety. Be creative!

To make a really special wave wallpaper, set its "movement and form." Speed it up, stretch it out or increase the "Amplitude." Watch it wobble or curve across the screen. Skew it as you please! Raise the curves or lower them into flatter hills. Personalize a live wallpaper down to the tiniest details. Tap on "Set wallpaper" once satisfied, and enjoy the custom waves as they flow across your home screen!

Save and share a personalized preset anytime. Visit the "Wave Community" to get inspiration from others' customized settings, or share your own. Whether you want to express yourself or do something creative, you will have a wonderful time tweaking the waves!

Reminds me of the PS3 background screen! You can tweak just about anything, from the colors to how fast it moves etc. Low battery usage too. Only downside is there is a max number of user presets you can use :(
