10 free live wallpapers you should try
10 free live wallpapers
This has to be the best virtual aquarium you can get on Android. Fish moves naturally, water effects look nice, and a double tap sprinkles food that your digital pets will gladly munch on. Just keep in mind that performance might be an issue on older or less-capable devices. Alternative pond images are available in the live wallpaper's paid version.
2. Ice Galaxy
Out of the four live wallpapers belonging to the Maxelus Galaxy Tetralogy, Ice Galaxy has to be our favorite. It moves gently following your swipes and the cool color tones contribute to the nice relaxing effect that has been achieved. Three additional Galaxy wallpapers by the same developer are freely available at the Play store, and the premium Galaxy Pack contains 11 more.
And if you don't mind checking out another space-themed live wallpaper, here's Galactic Core. Again, it might run slowly on older smartphones, but if your handset is potent enough, the wallpaper should swirl just fine.
As the name suggests, this live wallpaper is a view of Earth from outer space. What makes it fancy is that the planet is illuminated by the Sun from one side, while city lights twinkle on the other. Alternative views of Earth, such as "postapocalyptic" and "futuristic", are available too.
Here is an abstract live wallpaper that looks pretty nice in both blue and pink. Additional colors are available in its full version.
Digital Flux promises to bring your home screen to life with its pulsating tiles of various colors. It features realistic shadows, lighting effects, and anti-aliasing in case your smartphone or tablet has the horsepower to handle it. Check out the live wallpaper's paid version for more colors and customization options.
How about some colorful light beams shooting from the bottom of your home screen and blending gently in the middle? That is exactly what you get with the Rays of light live wallpaper. A variety of textures are available for additional customization.
Season Zen is graphically-intensive live wallpaper that we totally recommend checking out. Just don't get too carried away by the pretty visuals and floating cherry blossoms.
9. Mood ICS
Simple and relaxing, Mood ICS is a live wallpaper that breathes life into your handset without drawing too much attention. The free version comes with two color themes to choose from - pink and blue.
Last but not least, we have selected an abstract live wallpaper with pretty three-dimensional effects and catchy color combinations. Once you get bored from the textures that come for free, check out the premium version of Alien Shapes.

You should've stated "on your android".
How will WP or iOS users try this?
I bet an average iPhone owner doesn't even know live wallpapers are possible on a phone.
And they say Android is ugly and non-elegant..sigh

The best I've found are available from maxelus. (http://maxelus.net) They have a planets pack and galaxy pack that is absolutely stunning. The cost is just under 2 bucks for each collection, but you can also download most of them free individually through Google play. I never thought I'd pay for a group of 3d animated screen savers... but after seeing the free ones in action on my Nexus 7, I couldn't resist. Give the free ones a shot, and be prepared to be mezmorized!

I usually only download live wallpapers from top developers and that are free of permissions. Agreeing with the comment above, Maxelus and Kittehface Software has some nice live wallpapers. The only other top live wallpaper developer (that I found) is the one who created the My Beach and Season Zen, but I'm not too fond of those since they don't scroll on my SGSIII when I set it to my home screen.

During the summer months, with no rain in California, I enjoy Thunderstorm Live by Kittenhface.
