Earth & Moon in HD Gyro 3D
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.afkettler.earth

battery flat in seconds, but i don't care. superb wallpaper.

Not really sure if they are the best.

Excellent collection of live Wallpaper for Android.

I have about 1800 photos, cartoons, etc., on my phone and tablet and i just use Wallpaper Changer to cycle them onscreen.

That's a huge collection Fairportfan and a good choice to use Wallpaper Changer too.

On the computer i have 2800...

Great collection, thanks for share! :) I have tried almost all and I think the Pixel Rain is really the best one, simple but beautiful!
