Digital Flux Live Wallpaper

Continuing our live wallpaper reviewing extravaganza is another from masterful wallpaper developer, D'Keesto. This entry in the "digital" series is called Digital Flux Live Wallpaper, and while it's definitely cool, I have no idea where the "flux" comes into play. (That's okay, though.)

Instead of embers or honeycombs or anything of that sort, you've got rectangular prisms that move up and down, seemingly at random. Touch the screen and they'll either be pushed down or pulled up (depending on what you pick in the settings). It's all very mechanical, and reminds me of that crazy complicated choreographic dance that happened at the Olympics in Beijing. (You know, the one with the people underneath the boxes!)

The settings menu is a bit simpler than some of D'Keesto's other offerings, limiting you to a mere two colors (and utter dominance by your color in slot one), but you can still pick from all sorts of different single colors or have the colors go off of the battery level.

There's also some performance options, like adjusting the camera zoom, turning anti-aliasing on or off, or enabling accurate shadows. Depending on your device, you might change these settings around, but with close camera zoom, anti-aliasing off, and accurate shadows on, I didn't see any performance issues as I slid and swiped from screen-to-screen. Of course, your mileage may vary.

If bouncing boxes are you thing, Digital Flux Live Wallpaper is the wallpaper for you. It's inexpensive, runs well, and has just enough customization to keep things interesting. I'm not quite sure where the digital aspect comes into play (especially compared to Digital Hive and Digital Embers), but maybe it's just a name continuity thing. Regardless, as far as live wallpapers go, this one certainly doesn't disappoint.

Digital Flux Live Wallpaper is a mere 99 cents in the Google Play Store. We've got download links, screenshots, and video after the break.

Serious users REALLY care about "wow, look at all the pretty colors"?

These "useless desktops" waste battery, memory, and CPU.

I would *MUCH* rather have useful information displayed instead.

I have never felt any impact on my battery life or performance from a live wallpaper.

If you want to display useful information instead, go for it. There's no need to be so stuck up about your way of doing things though.

Live wallpapers will not cause issues unless you don't have the hardware to handle it or the dev made a poorly coded one. I *MUCH* rather have options which is why I own my Android phone and specifically why I own a nexus. I also much rather the narrow minded steer clear of commenting but we see how that goes now don't we......

I change things up all the time from live wallpapers and regular wallpapers, so I enjoy seeing some reviews on these.

Your link to digital ember is broken.

It's not broken. Access is denied.

I think they don't want us mere readers to see it!
