    SpringCycle
    A dynamic wallpaper for the iPhone springboard that changes based on the time of day, cycling through the sun and moon in a 24 hour looped animation.

    I originally posted this back in 2009 under then name DWW (Dynamic Wallpaper Widget), with many setbacks I finally sat down and had a fiddle with its code and to my surprise it worked! Albeit their are still many bugs that need to be worked out, I have listed these below to show how incomplete this actually is:

    Bugs:

    > Fix refresh on springboard so that it refreshes properly.
    > Fix refresh so that it refreshes every hour on the hour

    Improvements:
    > Overhaul current design
    > Code images to move rather then using X amount of PNG's
    > Code images to move X amounts based on actual real life sky cycle (need to find online database)
    > Incorporate weather functionality, different image for weather.

    I am no coder, so the only one above I am really able to do is the design overhaul, however I plan to spend some free time trying to get bits working as the widgets life progresses.

    Enjoy, the basic widget seen in the animation above will be coming as soon as I fix the refresh issues, so until then. Stay savvy

    Yeah, its working. Once I get the refresh sorted so it updates on the hour - we will be flying.

    Congrats! Good luck on the refresh. Why is that image so grainy?

    I also remember this, but didn't it or something similar to it also used to have a wallpaper that changed to reflect the daylight? That'd be pretty nifty.
