Android 7.1.2 has been out for a couple of days and we are still digging through what appears to be a pretty small, incremental update. However, we have stumbled upon one small change, pointed out by a reader who sent us a tweet. (more…)
Google’s Wallpapers app is pretty great and all, but there are still other options out there that will get you the home screen of your dreams. Frame is an app I would recommend for really clean and high-res, beautiful imagery.
The app pulls a curated list of wallpapers from Unsplash, a site that provides high-resolution photos for free to do with as you please. Each day, Frame offers a “Photo of the Day,” shows you the popular wallpapers of the moment, and lists out a bunch that are featured. Most of the pictures tend to highlight nature or buildings, but overall there is a good mix that should satisfy anyone. (more…)
There’s been a number of exciting app releases in the past months, so it’s time we take a moment and highlight a few that we find ourselves using quite a bit. If you already using the soon-to-be-mentioned apps, you’re a rockstar. If you don’t use these apps, maybe you should, if you think they would benefit you.
In an attempt to diversify the post a bit, we’ll be highlighting an app for the social media loving people, gaming folks, as well as any Android user who wants to spruce up their home screen. If for some odd reason you don’t fall into one of these categories, better luck next time.
Let’s get to it. (more…)
When the Pixel Launcher was first leaked, a wallpaper picker was leaked right alongside it. This morning, that wallpaper app is officially available for all Android devices straight from Google Play. Titled a very simple Wallpapers, this app features Google’s own creations, plus a mix of photos and designs from the 500px community. (more…)
In recent years, Google has really stepped up its wallpaper game on Nexus devices with the use of satellite imagery. The images are both beautiful and interesting, but if you don’t own a Nexus, miss out when we post them up for download, or simply need more of them in your life, consider taking a look at Terra Collection, a free wallpaper pack filled with even more satellite stunners.
In Terra Collection, you’ll find dozens of wallpapers, most of which are of the satellite variety. The collection also includes Google’s most recent Nexus wallpaper releases, as well as some from OSX and iOS too, in case you want those. (more…)
We take wallpapers pretty seriously around here. For the most part, I enjoy a few of the pre-installed wallpapers on select devices, but to really provide a sense of individualism for my smartphone, I require a fancy wallpaper and “hot” icon pack. Focusing purely on the wallpapers, there’s one app I tend to use more than any other, and that’s Backdrops.
We have written about Backdrops on a couple of occasions, but in reality, we talk about it all of the time. Whenever someone asks us about a wallpaper we are using, it’s typically always from Backdrops. This is what makes Backdrops so clutch. It’s not a set amount of wallpapers in an app, as people are always adding new and awesome papers inside. Only high quality content is approved by the Backdrops team, meaning you will only see great wallpapers. (more…)
