    Has anyone ever done an interactive background? Remember those apps that filled a glass or something using the accelerometer? Well could there be some type of a springboard background with something not too intrusive but fun to play with. I would love to make it myself but I don't have the knowledge.

    Maybe, but the new iPods and iPhones could likely handle it.

    Battery life would get murdered. Usually these things keep running even when you're in an app.

    I've never seen the android wallpapers. And yeah it probably would die quickly. I would like it just to show off.
