I've been enjoying the Lonely Tree LWP recently. It's about all the snow I usually see around here, haha.

For some reason, the frame rate of that is extremely low on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

Digital hive is nice, but whatever LWP I try, I always end up going back to a nice clean static wallpaper. like my favorite grey wood plank wall. just looks nicer and cleaner.

Must be some compatibility issues then, because it's ported or something. Even on low-end Xperia devices it seems rather smooth and doesn't chew much battery either.

I've been using the live wallpaper that came with Beautiful Widgets:

Kind of neat. It tracks the day and has a sun during the day and a moon during the night with some grass at the bottom.

I'm not sure I would call it "my favorite" but it is the one I'm using now.

Not really a fan of LWP.

I download quality wallpaper from interfacelift.com and use Wallpapyrus to apply without cropping.

My best lwp is currently Paperland Pro. The only downside is the ram usage which is quite high

Me too. Just drains battery.
I grab dark wallpapers from Zedge (too lazy to crop wallpapers myself).

By the way. Zedge got a nice selection of live wallpapers as well.

Ah :) I didn't click because of what was said before the link. I presumed the link would be a standard wallpaper or something.
