This is a running preview of The Solar System Live Wallpaper for Android devices. It’s missing stars and lots of optimization. Also, this isn’t to scale but it’s somewhat close . The sun is really, really big and if it were to scale, Mercury and Earth would be very difficult to see. Eventually, you will be able to add and remove elements. I’m building an asteroid belt that will orbit the Sun and people will be able to mess with it. Pluto will only be available for the pro version. It’s not considered a part of the Universe anymore, so it’ll be a nice bonus. The free and paid version will not have any special permissions, ads or an in-app purchasing system. I know how precious resources are to users.
I can’t seem to think of an Uranus joke, but I’ll probably come up with one sooner or later. Be prepared.
