Live Wallpaper support

Postby urbantrad » Thu Feb 17, 2011 11:22 pm

Hi

I just discovered that my HTC Wildfire, like some other phones, does not support live wallpapers. I was wondering what the point is of not allowing them? If it's because of relatively few processing power, I feel that the user should still be given the option and see for themselves how it runs on their phone.

Did you even read the question? I'm not asking for a way to solve it, I'm asking why it's not supported in the first place.

Because your processor sucks.

That's not a reason to just not allow them, is it? Users should at least be given the chance to see for themselves.

Just because you own a Ford Transit (or insert your own lousy car here) instead of a Ferarri, is there any reason why you shouldn't be allowed to go around race tracks?

But that's different :-)

It's about protection not denial of service.
