    I can only assume Apple hasn't approved of devs creating live wallpapers yet, but i really hope this becomes a reality soon.

    The stock ones get old REALLY quickly. Even though i absolutely LOVE many Android live wallpapers, i can only imagine iOS ones would be even better.

    Anyone else want more?

    if done well live wallpapers use up little to no battery. I have a graphically intense 3D wallpaper on my 2013 Nexus 7, and even with heavy use (Netflix, gaming, web surfing, switching between apps) i get around 20 hours of use before a battery charge is needed.

    Battery life on my ipad air is virtually the same with dynamic wallpapers. Also on my 5S.

    They don't seem to effect that much (if at all) battery life on my iPhone 5s. I get more or less same amount of battery life as I would with static wallpaper. And yes, more wallpapers would be nice. Maybe Apple will change that on iOS 8 and open it up for developers to create more.

    Yes, please!

    Remember the liveliness of the 12 Days of Gifts app? That one as a wallpaper for Christmas would've been awesome.

    They pause in the background.

    Would love to see more. Would be cool to have dynamic wallpaper based on contents in your photo roll and music app.

    sure, why not...Apple added in Dynamic wallpapers but doesn't seem to be a way to add your own. so, they mast as well offer up some more...or a way to build them.

    **I don't use them, but know some might

    Live wallpapers aren't much of a battery hog on most modern Android devices.

    I don't know why, but I have a feeling that Apple will include more Dynamic wallpapers with the 7.1 Golden Master like they did with the 7.0 Golden Master.

    I want more. But my old iPhone 4 doesn't support them. But I use them on my iPad and love them. We need more.
