Have you ever wanted to have a big mouse walking around on your screen? Probably not! But there is now an app for that to simulate a fat mouse walking around on your screen. It’s called Mouse on Screen Scary Joke!
Inside of settings you can first Hide mouse icon in status bar. You can disable mouse sound. You can also put in a mouse delay. Either show mouse immediately, after 10 seconds, or a custom time. You can also select what edge you want the mouse to walk on. The default is left edge. The last setting you can tweak is mouse size. I wish that the textures they used inside this app was of higher resolution. If you go back to first screen you have a green button up on top you tap to Show Mice. Then he starts walking on your home screen.
I actually think this is a pretty cool app because of how smooth it runs on Samsung Galaxy S8. No slow-downs. But I wish you could make the mouse even smaller. And it would be cool if there was an option inside the app to include many different mouse variants. As well as more than one mouse at the same time. When mouse walks on screen he does walk over the app icons but he does not walk over the on screen keys at the bottom of the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. Which makes it look a little weird.
Something that is very nice is if you make the mouse walk on the bottom screen then he doesn’t walk over the on-screen keys. So it looks way more realistic. It would be cool if you could add voice functionality to be able to talk to the mouse and make him stop and tell him to do certain tasks. But I don’t think this is possible to do with Android live wallpapers for the moment. Maybe in the future!
Will you download this app? Or would you like another animal to walk on your home screens? It would be cool if this app also worked on the lock screen. Oh wait it does! How amazing! If you have any future app recommendations then please let me know! I love to check out cool Android Apps.
Have you ever wanted to use your camera as a live wallpaper? Well there is now an app for that and it’s called: Transparent Phone. This app will allow you to use either your rear camera or your back camera as a live wallpaper. This worked on my Samsung Galaxy S8 but will also work with other phones. It runs smooth and works also on lock screen. Or you can just use it on the home screens.
You can’t tap to focus because it’s not in photo mode. But maybe you can pretend your phone is transparent. Many people have complained that it’s not truly transparent like it can be hard to fool a person but I think the app does a cool job using your camera as your background. Just be aware that it makes your camera running a lot so it can make your device warm and make your battery last shorter.
This is a great app for people who love to look at themselves just use the front facing camera on the lock screen and you don’t even have to unlock the device to see yourself. All the time!
Some cool app ideas here would be to add fantasy figures appear on the screen while the camera is being used. Kind of like the game Pokemon Go is doing it by showing pokemons using your camera. I’m not sure if this is possible using the Android programming language but it would be pretty cool if it could be done!
Will I be using this app anymore? Probably not. Even though I like cool live wallpapers like the Earth HD, Solar System HD apps I showed a couple of days ago I really do prefer just a normal static wallpaper. What do you prefer? Many people probably use live wallpapers because they get tons of downloads.
Today I want to check out another Android live wallpaper. It’s called Falling Money 3D Live Wallpaper. It will make it rain down money bills on your home screen and lock screen. In the free app you only get dollar bills. But if you upgrade the app to full version then you could get other currencies like euro.
You can add a custom background if you like. The default one is black. But you can also select a background from your gallery in your phone. The kind of falling banknotes you can have in full version is: Dollars, Rubles, Nigerian Nairas, Euros, Dirchams UAE, Australian dollars, Belarussian rubles, Canadian dollars, Swiss franks, Yuan, Pounds, Rupees, Yen, Kuwaiti Dinars, Tenge, Swedish Kronas, Turkish Liras and Hryvnia.
You can also go in and select the money amount: 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 100, 200 and 400. The other three setting you can tweak is Money Size, Falling speed and Whirling speed. You can also go in and select the banknotes value: All, By battery level, Small, Medium, High, Small and medium, Small and high & Medium and high.
You can also go in and tweak the Falling mode: Continuous will make so the money disappears and keep falling down. Interval (Need full version), Shadows, Touching and Deflation on shake.
When you swipe across the screen you can have so money falls away and when you shake you can also have so money falls away from the screen. And then there is an option for Quick settings by just doing a double tap.
In full version of the app you can also tweak the screen updating frequency and the textures quality. And full version will remove some minor ads you see in free version. Overall I really enjoy the quality of this live wallpaper app. Especially when it’s a free app to download you can’t expect too much. But this one gives you a lot even when it’s free. And if you want your custom currency that option is also available. Hopefully your currency exist inside the app!
The app wallpaper runs well on Samsung Galaxy S8 and I’m curious if it will run fast on older Android phones. You can test it out for yourself!
Inside of settings you can first select the shape: Spherical Nebula, Flat Nebula, Evaporating Nebula, Quasar, Hand of God, Spiral Galaxy and Through Nebula.
With the Spherical everything moves around in calm circles. In a vibrant galaxy.
Flat Nebula everything is more flat and focused at the center of the screen.
The Evaporating has an extremely cool effect where everything goes from the center to the sides of the phone. Kind of like an explosion. But in a slower way.
Quasar everything is moving around in circles with a thick galaxy line in the middle.
With the Hand of God you can literally see a hand inside the galaxy. Blue coloured. But I’m sure you can change the colour.
Spiral everything also goes in circles but without the thick galaxy line.
Through Nebula you basically feel like you are travelling forward!
Also what could be good to know that just as with the Solar System HD live wallpaper this app is using your gyroscope to move the galaxy while you hold you phone in the hand. This app runs perfect on my Samsung Galaxy S8! My favourite shape is Hand of God and Through Nebula.
The second option you have available is to go in and change color. You have these options available: Firestorm, Frozen, Golden, Flesh, Oasis, Kissel, Ice and Fire, Bronze, Blue Kissel and Mixed.
Firestorm gives you two colors mixed red and green.
The Frozen looks as it’s name applies, cold! It has purple and blue colour beautifully mixed together.
Golden has yellow and almost a red/brown colour. But looks very gold and yellow overall.
Flesh is a very interesting one it mixes pink/white and a low key green and low key orange colour to create this overall special colour effect.
Oasis colour mixes green and orange.
Kissel is for the pink and purple lovers.
Ice and Fire is one of my favourites it mixes red and blue to create this magical effect.
Bronze is mostly green and a low key yellow colour.
Blue Kissel has a light blue and pink colour effect. Mixed has almost all colors, but little green.
Second tweak you can do is change the state: Calm, Normal and Boiling. Normal and Calm I cant see massive difference between but the boiling for sure speed things up!
Second massive colour change you can do is on the background. So the first effect was mainly on the galaxies. But this one affects the background. These effects are available for the background: Stars, Deep Blue, Blue, Deep Red, Red, Deep Purple, Deep Green, Green and Black.
Stars is easy it just shows stars in the background, tiny ones.
Deep blue is truly deep in colour. Not super strong. The standard blue is way more intense.
Deep red same with that. The standard red is truly red. I love the red colour. Makes the whole phone look zombie possessed.
Deep Purple and Deep Green same here just a very deep low key colour in the background.
Normal green is magical too. Makes the phone look like vibrant grass or like a broccoli/spinach meal you just wanna eat. I wish they had normal pink also. But only deep pink available.
Then you can select the density level. I’m not quite sure what this tweaks does because I can’t see a difference. You can also disable space dust. Which is tiny traveling stars.
You can also go in and change the focus distance and distance, the sensitivity on gyroscope and the movement radius. If you need even more performance then you can go in and limit the FPS. The standard is set to 60 FPS on Galaxy S8. But can be lowered to 5 FPS. 5 FPS looks very laggy. There is no option to select low resolution textures.
Overall this is a very nice app if you like space and want a cool live wallpaper. And there is great chance it will run well even on lower end devices. Because I tried out the same developers Solar System HD app on Samsung Galaxy S2 which is from 2011 and it ran amazing on that phone. So you can get great performance on older devices.
I’m not sure what can be improved with this app it satisfies most of my needs. Especially when it comes to the smooth performance. It would be cool to see something like this on the new iPhone 8 but of course it will be hard because Apple is using a locked down App Store. Only option would be if the new iPhone 8 gets jailbroken fast and unlocks options to use live wallpapers. But then someone needs to create the app as well!
Something I also really like with this app is how it works on the lock screen on Samsung Galaxy S8. This is an option I couldnt use on my S2 with Solar System HD App. It would be cool if it worked on the lock screen on older devices.
Let me know if there is any other cool app you want me to review. I want to review quality apps that provide value to people. And what I have noticed is that apps that cost around €1-5 euro usually the developers is more passionate about their work and works more with integrity. That’s what I have found from all these three live wallpapers. The app developer also have some real Android games that I might check out in the future.
I think people are getting real tired of freemium apps that is spammed with ads. It becomes annoying. People becoming ready to spend a few euros to get a quality experience. And it also makes so the developer gets better paid for their work. Which is amazing!
Today I want to review the game Final Fantasy 3 by Square Enix. This game was one of the first I bought for my Nintendo DS Lite in 2007. And now they have made it into an Android game you can download from the Google Play Store!
This game starts off with you being a character falling down into a cave in fantasy world. You instantly get attacked by various monsters and learn you need to fight to gain experience and to survive.
This game has great music already from the beginning. In the first cave you both find chests and secret rocks. You tap on items to activate them. In one chest at the beginning it contained a longsword. Sometimes chest’s contains other things like potion that you can use to heal your character. You use a virtual joystick to move around the character with ease.
The battles against monsters will attack automatic inside the cave when you are walking around. In battle you have 3 options. Attack, Magic and Guard. You can also run away from the battle!
In the right bottom corner you see your health bar. The goblin monsters you will attack at the beginning of the game are fairly easy to win over. When you win you gain Gil & EXP. And sometimes your job level increase!
Up in the top right corner of the screen you have your main menu. In here you can see different menus: Item, Magic, Equipment, Status, Formation, Job, Config, Quicksave, Save. The amount of Gil you have. And your full party. Which can include 3 others so 4 in total. Your starting job is Freelancer and on Level 1. HP and MP you can also see. Which is for health and magic powers.
In the items page you can see how powerful each item is in various categories like Defence and Attack. You can go in and equip your player with new items you find. You can carry a tool in right hand and left hand for attack. For Defence you can have protection items on head, body and arms.
The status page is good when you wanna see how much EXP it takes to level up to the next level. Also it only seems to show when you will level up your player and that the job level it levels up kind of random.
Outside of Attack and Defence you have deeper modes as Magic Defence. And Strength, Agility, Vitality, Intellect and Mind that you can level up!
I like the graphics in this game. How they move the camera when it’s in battle time from a top view to a closer behind the player view. It makes the game feel modern even when it’s older. I also like how there is no in-app purchase options. You can also save the game to the cloud.
You will sometimes meet bosses which will be harder to defeat. One of the first bosses you will meet is a giant turtle. If you lose the game and no save then there is complete game over and you have to restart again.
It will take some time to level up in this game. And a lot of same training. But that’s what makes you appreciate it more. That you have to work hard for progress. And the cloud saving works great on Android.
Your goal in the game is to spread light in the world. The Crystal came to you and told you was the chosen one. And the elders from the city says you are the chosen one too. The Crystal doesn’t want the world to fully become just darkness. You have to seek out other light people to help you on your journey.
The challenges in this game reminds me about life’s real world challenges. With constant training in this game. It’s kind of like real life. Everyday there are new struggles and challenges we have to overcome. Quite inspiring to be honest.
Outside of the cave when you win against the turtle you are back up on land. Where you can find ton’s of worlds and people to explore. And cities with stores where you can buy various items for protection and attack. For example I noticed you can’t use a bow and longsword at the same time. But two longswords are fine.
In the forrest out in the world you will encounter a ton of new monsters. Each time your job level goes up your attacks seems to become stronger. What makes the game fun is sometimes you have to figure out stuff yourself. By hearing clues from the people you talk to. You slowly get guided into the right direction. Sometimes you miss something and have to go back and try to solve it. It’s fun.
You quickly gain the option to expand the party with 2 more people and you need to find a mysterious ring to heal a lot of people that has turned sick. You will be using a flying ship and go on travels in harder caves where you need to train with your party to level them up. Meeting harder monsters.
This is a highly fun game with amazing music and storymode.But it will take a lot of time and energy to really go deep in this and make progress.And the game can be frustrating if you want to do fast progress. Because level up will take a lot of effort inside this game.
Gameplay performance is great on Samsung Galaxy S8, just some minor slow downs but nothing too serious. There are a bunch of other Square Enix Final Fantasy game’s available in the Google Play store as well as the iTunes App store for iPhones and iPads. Many with high quality ratings.
The menus in the game are super easy to understand what they do. Many new games are very confusing in the game system. Not this. And it’s pretty easy to know sort of where you should go in the game. But it at the same time keeps up a nice story mode and gives you many surprises that draws you into the game and want to keep playing.
