DroidPack Brings Together the Wallpapers of Dozens of Flagship Devices and ROMs

Adding a new wallpaper is perhaps one of the most noticeable ways we can spruce up our mobile devices. Although there’s nothing particularly fancy or impressive about changing one’s wallpaper image, doing so effectively changes your device’s overall feel. Perhaps that’s why Apple finally saw the light and allowed iOS users to set home screen wallpapers with iOS 4 in 2010. It’s OK, though–they’re always a few years behind. This is also why we’ve grown accustomed to seeing particular wallpapers on particular devices, ROMs, and OSes.

You may recall that a little while ago, we covered WallpaperPlus by XDA Forum Moderator wildstang83. For those who don’t remember, this app brought together the stock wallpapers from many devices and custom ROMs. But like always, having more options is always preferable. And with that, we present DroidPack by XDA Forum Member donniemceduns.

DroidPack works similarly to the previously covered WallpaperPlus by allowing you to select between the stock wallpapers from various OEMs and ROMs. But unlike the previously covered solution, DroidPack’s collection is categorized and even allows users to search for specific ROMs, OEMs, Android versions, or OSes. And yes, I did say “OSes.” This app also allows you to load wallpapers from non-Android devices such as iOS 7 and 8–though I have no idea why anyone would want to do that.

If you’ve been looking for a way to spruce up your home screen, you can take a little trip over to the application thread and load the wallpaper database on your own device.

NVIDIA Launches SHIELD Android TV at Google I/O

Since Android TV was announced at Google I/O 2014, there has been very little activity in the way of hardware releases for the platform. Consumers had a very small selection to choose from in the form of the Nexus Player and Razer Forge TV, or they could buy a new Sony or Phillips television with Android TV on-board. These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...

Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
