Game of Life Description: Conway's Game of Life as a Live Wallpaper and Daydream!

Conway's Game of Life is a type of cellular automaton. Each cell in the grid can be in one of two states - alive or dead - and can change between those states according to the following rules:

- a living cell with fewer than 2 neighbours will die from 'underpopulation'
- a living cell with more than 3 neighbours will die from 'overpopulation'
- a living cell with 2 or 3 neighbours will continue to live
- a dead cell with exactly 3 neighbours will come to life

This app lets you set an interactive Game of Life as your Live Wallpaper or Daydream. By drawing on the screen with your finger you can create new living cells wherever you please, or double tap to spawn one of many presets. By default the Game will play itself, adding new seeds when necessary to keep the Game active.

Colours, animation speed and grid properties can be changed to your liking to make the Game fit your style. LWP and Daydream settings are separate and you can choose different appearance settings for your LWP for when your device is locked.

You can even make cells pulse in different colours when you receive a notification in another app! (Requires Android 4.3 or above)


To set the wallpaper: Long-press on your homescreen -> Choose 'Wallpapers' -> Find and choose 'Game of Life' -> Press 'Set wallpaper'.

To set the daydream: Go to your system settings -> Choose 'Display' -> Choose 'Daydream' -> Find and choose 'Game of Life' in the list.
