FishBowl Live Wallpaper - Baby Fish!!

A new update for FishBowl Live Wallpaper and FishBowl Premium LWP has just been released.

Get it here:  https://market.android.com/details?id=com.sp.fishbowl

I have been taking note of the requests coming in, and it seems many of you wanted to see cute little baby fish on the wallpaper.  Some considerable development time later, I had this awesome new feature ready to go.

There were some difficult decisions that needed to be made, and some further improvement still to come, but I wanted to get these baby fish out into the wild, to see what you think.

To see the baby fish, first ensure the 'Allow Baby Fish' option is enabled in the settings, and then watch until a male and female fish swim very close to each other (almost completely overlapping).  I won't spoil it for you - you really need to see it for yourself.  Before long you'll see some baby fish swimming around your wallpaper.

Eventually, the "fishbowl" can get a bit crowded with all the baby fish, so I allowed the user to send baby fish away by tapping on them 3 times within 30 seconds.  I assure you that no fish are harmed in this process. :-)

Where to from here?

So far it looks like the baby fish are a hit, and I'm seeing a surge in the number of downloads as normally happens after a major release such as this.

I have some further customization options planned, to allow you to better manage the baby fish, and maybe soon the baby fish will be able to grow up into adult fish.  There are issues still to be worked out however (such as how to stop the "fishbowl" getting crowded), so if you have ideas, please send them through :-)

I hope you enjoy FishBowl Live Wallpaper.  It is a rewarding project and I'm excited about the potential for new features.  I'll keep you posted on all future updates.

FishBowl Premium LWP


FishBowl Premium LWP is the full-featured version.

This Live Wallpaper contains all of the features of FishBowl Live Wallpaper, plus much more.

There are now various animations, as the fish now blows bubbles, eats up the fish food, or just shows you how happy it is with a big cheesy grin.

New objects are now shown, called 'debris' in the app. For now, there is only seaweed, but this will be updated with a range of different items in future.

The amount of debris is customizable, and it can even be turned off, so if you prefer it to look like the free version, you can do that too.

I'll keep you updated with new features, as they are added.

If you have ideas you'd like to see, please send email to splabs@splabs.net. I'd love to hear from you.

I hope you enjoy FishBowl Premium LWP.

FishBowl Live Wallpaper


FishBowl Live Wallpaper is a free wallpaper for Android, where your phone's home screen becomes the home of a cute little fish. The fish will happily swim around all day.

Touch the top of the screen to feed the fish.

Touch anywhere else on the screen and the fish will swim there.

This is not a trial version, and will never expire.

I hope you enjoy it :-)

Of course, if you like FishBowl Live Wallpaper, then check out FishBowl Premium LWP.
