    PS, I REALLY appreciate any feedback too - since ultimately it's for the people using it, it really helps me develop this stuff with your tastes and ideas in mind!

    A quick update, I got a PM by a user here with a request to keep the state active (so the simulation doesn't reset) between view changes. That's been rolled out now!

    Keep the feedback coming! I really do appreciate it

    Rapid-fire followup
    So we've been extremely busy refactoring a lot of the code and improving the app

    Another day, another update!
    Latest feature changes:

    1. By request, ambient fire can now be customised in intensity, as well as turned off completely.
    2. You asked and we listened! Battery consumption is now no higher than regular wallpapers!
    3. Improved useability; The companion app now helps users to set the wallpaper if they choose to, and settings are laid out more logically.


    In addition to this, we now have a web presence - Pleasant Monkey | Purveyors of fine apps
    And a newly released wallpaper, Autumn Grove 3D (very excited about this one!):
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...umnGrove3DFREE

    As usual, let me know any and all feedback! Already the feedback we've got has helped make Pyro Live even more butt-kicking keep it coming!

    What is the difference in the paid vs non paid version? (the firefighter in me likes things like this)

    Sorry I hadn't spotted your reply earlier!
    The paid version exposes every tweakable option I could think of including!
    - customise color with many options such as cycling, random, or manual
    - change the flame drawing intensity
    - change the tap explosion intensity
    - disable/enable ambient explosions
    - disable/enable ambient fire
    etc
