    So i recently got a theme on my ipod touch and it rotates wallpaper every half a minute or so.

    Does this decrease the battery life a lot?
    I don't have much time to use my ipod right now.

    If it's a video file, then yes it will decrease more battery.

    It's not a video file, just about 9 png images.
    I've used it for a while and it sometimes lags when switching wallpapers so it might.

    But it will drain some. And maybe lag a bit.

    but...

    Does it reduce less battery life if you set it to change less often?

    Any form of moving backgrounds WILL drain battery as they have to keep rerezzing, using up the processor. Something i kinda sort of learned from Second Life and common sense.

    If it doesn't change frequently there will be low battery usage for it, but it will drain it.
