As I mentioned in my last report I have a new app called “Battery Live Wallpaper” in the Android market. It’s a live wallpaper that indicates the battery status of the phone by either changing the saturation of the background image or its color. A custom image from the SD Card or the gallery can be selected as the source background image.
Currently the color gradient is predefined. Green indicates a completely charged battery, yellow means there are about 20% left and red stands for an empty battery. In the future I plan to allow customized color gradients.
When I developed the Battery Live Wallpaper I expected similar download rates as for the GPS Widget. But currently the rates are much lower. I try to optimze this in the next weeks by posting on some forums and blogs about it. I’m curious how this will improve download rates. If you know some good places to promote an app/wallpaper, please let me know by leaving a comment.
In the market I have two versions of the wallpaper. One free and a paid version. In the free version the option to select a custom image is locked but can be unlocked with Tapjoy.
