Koi uses Open GL 2.0 to bring the tranquility of a koi pond directly to your tablet.
The gentle koi fish has long represented abundance, happiness and peace to Eastern cultures. Often found in serene garden ponds, the koi fish swims oblivious to the world above it, lost in the tranquility of the water. Now, you can bring some of the serenity of an Eastern garden directly to your tablet with the new Koi Live Wallpaper by Kittehface Software.
Koi Live Wallpaper transforms the user’s home screen into a window overlooking a peaceful koi pond. Featured on new Intel® Atom™ tablets for Android*, users can customize their desktop ponds by changing the background, selecting the type and number of fish and adding decorative details like lily pads.
Kittehface Software is an Intel® Software Partner and optimized Koi Live Wallpaper for the capabilities of Intel Atom tablets for Android*. The company accessed Intel tools, code, support and more in the Intel® Developer Zone.
“The support we received from Intel allowed us to create a unique wallpaper experience for our users,” said Jeremy Statz, owner of Kittehface Software. “Intel was very generous with its resources, and so we were able to create a product that is beautiful and customizable.”
The developers at Kittehface Software worked with Intel engineers to optimize the live wallpaper for the unique capabilities of new Android* tablets. Because they wanted to create a product that was both attractive and functional, they called upon the developer communities available through the Intel Developer Zone to receive technical guidance and assistance with the product’s development.
“We tried very hard to create a live wallpaper that had gorgeous, realistic graphics,” noted Statz. “At the same time, we were also cognizant of the app’s functionality. The exceptional battery capabilities within Android* tablets allowed us to present the user with an artistic experience, but not at the expense of battery life.”
New Android* tablets presented Kittehface Software developers with the perfect platform for Koi Live Wallpaper. With their high-resolution screens and exceptional battery life, new Android* tablets allow users to run Koi Live Wallpaper continuously, with very little overall effect on battery life.
Capitalizing on these and other unique features, Kittehface Software has created over 20 live wallpapers for Android* tablets. “Partnering with Intel allows us to develop live wallpaper that people want to buy," said Statz. “We hope to continue to work with Intel to bring the consumer even more beautiful live wallpapers.”
