Auto Wallpaper Updates with Gainos Fresh Wallpapers
Posted March 11, 2013 at 05:30 am by David Watt
There are a number of Android apps available that manipulate your wallpaper in some way, be it changing colours or updating it from images stored on your phone. Some apps take it one step further. Gainos Fresh Wallpapers, developed by XDA Forum Member alinium_, is one such app.
Gainos Fresh Wallpapers will automatically update your device’s wallpaper at a predetermined interval. Rather than using a library of images stored locally on your device, it will download a random image from the Flickr website’s “Explore” stream. For those phones or tablets with a higher resolution display, the app will download higher resolution images to suit the device, for the best viewing quality.
You can change the predetermined time interval at which the wallpaper is changed. This can be set from every ten minutes, all the way up to once per week. In order to avoid excess data charges, you can choose to only download new wallpapers when connected to a WiFi network.
Your last 10 wallpapers are stored, to allow you to go back if you com across one you particularly like. And for those running Android Jelly Bean, the app support the new “Daydream” feature and will start a screensaver when your device is docked.
If you’re sick of having the same wallpaper every day, and want to freshen up your device, pay a visit to the app thread.
