Welcome to 'Paul's App of the Day', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! Today's app is...

Advanced Map Live Wallpaper

* Battery friendly (no GPS required)
* Zoom settings
* Smooth scrolling
* Traffic

I love the Live Wallpaper that ships with Google Maps and this is a super-juiced up version of it! :) The OS map view looks great, love it!
