Auto Wallpaper Updates with Gainos Fresh Wallpapers

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.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
