Adidas Live Wallpaper

Show your nations pride this World Cup time and play with balls!

Two years ago adidas launched a live wallpaper app for Android to help celebrate the Euro 2012 football championships. Now, it's World Cup time and it's back with a pretty sweet update that still lets you play with balls! The tournament is going down right now in Brazil – with the hosts kicking things off in style in the opening game – and this live wallpaper is just the ticket to help you cheer on your team!

So, what's new this time out? The 2D view of old makes a return accompanied by a brand new 3D view that represents the legendary Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. As you swipe around between your different homescreens the view rotates around the stadium. There's also a "Battle mode" which is a little confusing, and just seems to be the same thing but tied into a range of adidas football footwear.

You can still tap the football around the screen as before in 2D mode, while in 3D you get to take a shot at goal. Once you've chosen your favorite team – go England! – you'll get a nice big flag in the center circle and also new for this year is the Brazuca clock widget.

It's a free download so head on over to the Play Store at the link up top to grab it for yourselves. Be sure to leave us a line in the comments and let us know who you're shouting for this year!

I checked this out yesterday and found it to be far too busy to be a useful wallpaper. It really only works with nothing overtop of it.

Let's go Azzurri!
I tried it, got rid of it after the initial meh factor wore off. I like the clock widget although the thermometer doesn't seem to work.

Brazil kicking off in style? If diving and assault are stylish you know little of football..
