Game of Life Live Wallpaper: Constantly Changing and Evolving
Download Game of Life Live Wallpaper ($0.99) from Google Play

The Game of Life Live Wallpaper is a beautiful and customizable wallpaper based on Conway's Game of Life. The wallpaper features a grid of squares, which are cells in Conway's Game of Life. They live and die according to how many neighbors they have, resulting in a constantly changing live wallpaper.

Main features include:

  • A widget that allows you to control the wallpaper directly from your home screen, so that you don't have to go into your system's wallpaper settings to change it.

  • Customizability: You can select many different display modes, and you can even create your own color schemes. You can also select how large the squares are, and how fast the simulation goes.

  • Always looks good: It'll look great on every phone, as it automatically sizes the squares to fit your screen. Also, if the simulation gets boring, it will automatically reset the simulation.

  • Interaction: You can pause and edit the Game of Life simulation, so you can enter in your own patterns.

The app was created by CS undergrads Austin Mueller and Ben Oztalay in 2012. The two created a venture called Tabus Nine Computing to create and distribute Android apps.
