What is this?
This is a live wallpaper application for Google Android (2.1+) phones/tablets/MIDs that displays rotating Platonic solids. All five polyhedra (the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahedron, and the icosahedron) simultaneously rotate on the home screens.
Please let me know any suggestions that you have to tweak the software for your use.
No ads nor special permissions required.
