Live wallpaper apps are a great way to personalize and express yourself on your Android device. Now, NBA fans have an opportunity to represent their favorite team with NBA 2012 Live Wallpaper (by Cellfish Studios). While this live wallpaper Android app is FREE, it is a little deceiving. There is 1 FREE NBA live wallpaper included, which is the official NBA logo, but did not find this easily when I opened the app. The more apparent options were the NBA team wallpapers all selling for $1.99 a piece, which is definitely pricey in my opinion– so buyer beware. I went ahead and purchased the Detroit Pistons’ live wallpaper, which has several customization settings, bouncing basketballs that can be moved using my Galaxy Nexus accelerometer, which is a pretty cool feature. However, for $2 I would normally pass on this. But, if you’re a real big NBA fan and want to support you team by displaying your team logo on everything, then you’ll probably want this app. The FREE live wallpaper is uninspiring, unless you work for the NBA; I don’t and I doubt you do either.
Another rather cheesy revenue stream is the offer of a ringtone for $0.99 when you purchase the live wallpaper — wow, what a deal. If you buy the ringtone alone, it costs the same and I never really noticed what the official song or ringtone would be for the Detroit Pistons, but I am guessing it would get annoying. Again, unless I was a hardcore Pistons fan. Check this app out before purchasing any live wall papers, but in the developer’s defense, the live wallpapers did work well, were stable, and looked great. So, I guess they feel their prices are fair, all things considered — you decide.
