WaPaC 1.4 Released

Everyone likes to change their wallpapers as it’s an easy way to overhaul the look of your device, but it’s never long before your newest choice starts to look dull and overly familiar. Luckily, Rapid81‘s Wallpaper Changer (‘WaPaC’) application prevents you from ever getting bored of your home screen’s background.

WaPac can be programmed to change your Windows or Manila wallpaper after a given time interval. You can select any number of files on your phone or its SD card through which the application will cycle, ensuring that every time you see your home screen you’re pleased to see something refreshing and new. The recent update to version 1.4 brings a ‘change now’ prompt to the software along with the allowal of once-per-minute changes, the removal of the limit of pictures you can select, specifically timed wallpaper changes which may be set like an alarm clock, Co0kie’s Home Tab version 1.8 support and numerous bug fixes.

You can download the application and try it for yourself from the application thread.

ben_duder is an editor on XDA-Developers, the largest community for Android users. Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.

OnePlus Announces $50 Discount On OnePlus One

OnePlus had promised a "change" on June 1st in their attempts to "shake up the industry".

What Kind of Features Make a Phone Easier to Handle?

The way a phone handles depends on many factors: size, ratios, geometry, materials, bezels, weight, weight distribution, etc. On top of that, all of these can have vastly different results depending on the size of the hand that's holding the phone. These factors can help not just with grip, but also with pocketing, general handling and even actual software operation as well. With all of these in mind, and taking into account every relevant aspect of a phone's physical design, what kind of attributes do you think make a phone easier to handle (in every sense)?
