From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Replace Your Current Wallpaper with Rwilco12’s Wallpaper Gallery
When your home screen feels dull and boring, it most likely means that your wallpaper needs to be changed. Your wallpaper is quite literally the centerpiece of your Android home screen, so keeping it fresh and in sync with your theme can be quite challenging.
There are applications like 500 Firepaper by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire that change the wallpaper automatically, but some of you might prefer to do this manually. A great alternative was created by XDA Forum Moderator rwilco12. His app is essentially a gallery of nearly 1000 high resolution images of many categories. The app lets you select a wallpaper from one of ten color categories.
All images are stored within Rwilco12’s app and automatically refreshed when a new content becomes available, so users don’t have to download new wallpapers on their own. It’s worth mentioning that all images available in the application are safe for work and contain no nudity. The developer plans on adding many interesting features, which should be available pretty soon.
This application can completely change the look of your home screen, and the whole process takes less than ten seconds. You can find the Wallpaper Gallery in the application thread, so give your phone some love and give this app a shot.
