If you're into throwing quirky, fun stuff on your Android and just love live wallpapers, this is the app for you. It's called Alive TV, and it's not only a fun way to liven up your homescreen, but it's very well made, [somewhat] functional, and quite pleasing to the eye.

Here's the gist: a wobbly TV takes center stage, bouncing around as you scroll through homescreens. Bubble clouds appear and float around, creating a rich, playful environment. While the free version of the LWP is pretty basic, only allowing you to "play" with the little TV guy, the paid version actually provides some functionality. The display of the TV can show various information, such as battery level and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth toggles.

So, there you go. A bobbly TV for your homescreen.

    Sooo much lag in that demo video. The Live Wallpaper looks smooth, but homescreen to homescreen scrolling looks gross.

      Depends on your device I guess. I am sure it's fine on more modern phones.

      Scrolling on my Transformer is lag free, very smooth. I like the design, I will try it a couple more days and may end up buying the paid version if I don't get bored of it.

      NO lag on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 & Galaxy S II.

        I'll have to check it out on my Tab 10.1 then.

    It would be nice if there was some price for the paid version somewhere......

      You can always click on the market if it's not too much trouble for you.

    I bought the full version and it runs perfectly on my cheap Android. You can adjust the homescreen swipe animation speed up if you prefer it that way.

    Amazing! I purchased this and Ramdroid's other LWP - Fireflies. They both look awesome! And even better they run super smooth. No lags on the wallpaper or scrolling. Android needs more quality work like this! Great find!

    This looks like a lwp that jerry sandusky would use to lure little boys closer to him. Pass
