Snowfall can sometimes be a magical phenomenon to witness. It is as if white faeries floated down from the heavens, casting soothing spells of tranquility at those who gaze back at their wispy smiles. With its picturesque view and graceful animations, this live wallpaper aims to bring that spellbinding experience to your device's screen.

You can set the wallpaper to automatically adjust its background based on your location and current time. Doing so will display a spectacular sunrise every morning, humble clouds drifting in the sky during noon, and an amiable sunset that will ease you into the lunar lure of nightfall. Snow cascades at your touch and falls according to the orientation of your device, allowing your fingers to dance with the snowflakes to your delight. With this app, you are only a swipe, tap, and glance away from an enchanting winter wonderland.

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 :(
