    Hello All,

    Quick question, can you use a live wallpaper as screen saver of sorts. As i have my tablet most of the time cycling through photos and things on my desk and some of the live wallpapers are really cool and would like have them running "always on top" if you catch me.

    many thanks,

    will

    I saw something like this once on some web site but don't know where it was. They were using your photo album as a screen saver. Try doing a Google search for "make you own Android screen savers".

    If you want to run a live wallpaper as a "screen saver" simply setup a blank home screen (no icons or widgets), turn off the screen time out and let the live wallpaper run. Essentially this is the same thing as a "screen saver". Be sure to plug it in though as this will drain the battery pretty quickly.
