Change Your Android Backgrounds on a Schedule with Wallpaper Changer

Change Your Android Backgrounds on a Schedule with Wallpaper Changer

Have you ever longed for a utility to change your wallpaper automatically similar to the native functionality on your Windows 7 PC? Look no further, as XDA forum member j4velin has created Wallpaper Changer for Android.

With Wallpaper Changer, you can select several wallpapers to add to a rotation list that are cycled through using either a widget or a built-in timer. In the words of the developer:

I made this little app called Wallpaper Changer which comes with a widget to let you change your wallpaper with one click.

Simply add the wallpapers to a “rotation list” in the app and then you can rotate through your list with a single click on the widget. Additionally, you can also activate a timer which automatically changes your background image on a predefined time interval. You can also chose to enable the timer only when connected to an external power supply, though I haven’t felt a significant battery drain with an interval of 30 mins yet.

If you don’t use the timer, then there’s no background service running or something, so it shouldn’t affect your battery or performence in any way. Therefore it might take some seconds to actually change the wallpaper as the images are loaded only on demand.

Continue on to the application thread to begin your journey in wallpaper automation!
