smartphone wallpaper changerWallpaper is one of those little extras that let users add their own personalization to a device that thousands, perhaps millions of other users also own. The idea has been around for ages, and it’s no surprise that increases in smartphone display size have also resulted in more ways to add and manage wallpapers to them.

One way to keep things interesting is to switch your phone’s wallpaper constantly – but that can be tiring if you do it manually each time. The three smartphone wallpaper changers here will solve that problem for you.

Wallpaper Changer

The idea of switching between wallpapers Kick-Ass Wallpapers Kick-Ass Wallpapers Read More is quite simple on its face. You just need an app that can put up wallpaper from a folder full of images. Easy, right?

Yes, it is. But often users want a certain level of control over what is shown, and most apps don’t offer much. Wallpaper Changer is different. It gives users a wide range of options that provide significant control over when the wallpaper is changed, and what it is changed to.

Wallpapers are added to the smartphone Wallpaper Changer rotation by adding them to a list in the app. The change can happen at frequently or infrequently as you’d like. There are also a few convenient options that can alter the behavior of the app. For example, you can set the wallpaper to change every time you unlock the phone from the lockscreen.

Normally, control is a good thing. But that’s not always true. Radio Stream Quality Internet Radio Stations to Your PC or Mobile Stream Quality Internet Radio Stations to Your PC or Mobile Read More , for example, doesn’t give listeners much say over what is played (usually) and is better off for it.

Wallpapers can be the same way. Picking some favorites and rotating through them can become stale, even if you do love those images. Wallpaper Switch solves this by automatically displaying wallpapers from the site

Although the next wallpaper shown is random, you aren’t left entirely without control. You can decide how frequently you’d like the wallpaper to change and you can select the categories you’re interested in. Beyond that, however, you never know what you’ll get – and that’s part of the fun.

So we’ve now covered a wallpaper app that gives you great control over your own images and an app that can pick images at random. What else is there?

How about event-based wallpaper switching? It’s your friend’s birthday, and you’re terrible with dates.

So how about changing your wallpaper to a picture of your friend on the day before?

    I use an app called JustPictures! Which as well as being a great photo album app, with neat features like turning the brightness to maximum when you view a picture full screen has it's own inbuilt Live Wallpaper that will rotate through any pictures you mark as 'Favorites' 
    Saves having a separate app just for wallpaper and is a great album app that can link into Flickr, Facebook, Picasa and more.
