A mobile wallpaper is a computer wallpaper sized to fit a mobile device such as a mobile phone, personal digital assistant or digital audio player. Screens range in size from 128x128 to 1080x920 (for the HTC One) and the height is often greater than or equal to the width. While once costly and typically only available through a wireless carrier provided store, wallpapers can typically be downloaded at no cost from various websites for modern phones (such as those running Android, iOS, or Windows Phone operating systems).
A 'live wallpaper' is a type of application that works on a mobile device using the Android operating system. The application works as a wallpaper – providing the background image for the home screen—but also works as a conventional application since it can provide user-interaction with the touch screen (allowing the image to change dynamically, for example) and access other hardware and software features within the device (accelerometer, GPS, network access, etc.). Modern smartphones typically allow users to save images from the web browser to be used as wallpaper. Photographs captured with a phone's camera can also typically be set as a mobile wallpaper.
