Discover and Edit Wallpapers with WallBox

When setting out to edit a mobile device wallpaper, most people will turn to desktop-based image editing software such as Photoshop and Gimp. While it’s possible to perform edits in mobile editing apps, most solutions are a bit too cumbersome or slow to use for simple changes. That said, unless you’re creating a new wallpaper from scratch, you most likely don’t need the full power of a desktop-grade image editing suite either.

XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm created a fantastic and streamlined wallpaper editing app that gives you a limited number of options, but it does so in an efficient manner. When first launching the app, WallBox shows you your current wallpaper and gives you slider controls for saturation, hue, brightness, and contrast. In addition to these sliders, you can also go to a separate saturate tab, which simulates what your wallpaper would look like at a certain time of day.

But what about if you don’t like your current wallpaper? WallBox has you covered here as well. WallBox allows you to set a solid color as your wallpaper or download premade images directly through the app. So far, there are 10 wallpapers available for download from within the app, and more are sure to follow. Finally, the app allows you to specify many wallpapers and have them randomly change at a predetermined interval.

If you’ve been getting bored with your current wallpaper and you want an easy way to make some minor edits, or if you would like to give new wallpapers a try, head over to the application thread and give WallBox a shot.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
