Find the Best Wallpapers for Your Device with Bitmado
Have you ever spent time trying to figure out which wallpaper to use on your computers? The Internet offers almost limitless possibilities of great wallpapers, but wallpapers can just as easily become tiresome if you stare at them for too long. Some time ago, we had a pleasure of talking about 500 Firepaper by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire. The main goal of that application was to change the wallpaper regularly at predefined intervals.
The Bitmado project by XDA Forum Member rden.april does things a little differently. Instead, it relies on the community to upload, rate, and select wallpapers. Bitmado is a great solution for those who want a new wallpaper every time they unlock their devices. The application streams wallpapers in high quality, so they look good even in highest resolutions, and the app uses a unique system of “mados,” which are community-powered wallpaper categories that users can create or follow.
If you feel that your home screen is a bit boring, and if you would like to have a new wallpaper every time you unlock your device, Bitmado is definitely for you. More information about the project can be found in the application thread.
