Catfood Earth for Android 1.10 is now available for download. If you already have it installed you’ll get the update automatically (or run Google Play to check for updates).
1.10 adds settings that allow you to manually override the center of the image (rather than using your phone location), control transparency (for clouds and night) and adjust the width of the terminator between day and night.
Catfood Earth also starts faster and there are a number of small bug fixes.

The Android version of Catfood Earth is a live wallpaper that automatically centers on your current location.

Catfood Earth for Android is based on my Windows desktop wallpaper of the same name, optimized for smaller screens and to limit power consumption on mobile devices.

After looking at the available options I found everything to be too basic, or too complicated. Also, I've been looking for an excuse to knock up my first Android App having recently migrated from Windows Mobile.
