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.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
