IAm unsure why, but my wallpaper wouldn't set. After 10 min it finally set. Id like to suggest a tab for movements types. As an artist I really should know them. I am in love with this app. Wonderful idea.

runs HOT on razr maxxIt feels like the side of a bowl full of hot soup after a short while. Widget is cool but cuts battery life down by 60% or more. Great app, please fix for better rating.
