Within the preferences you can also choose whether inspiring patterns will be sourced randomly or from the newest set of patterns. When you enable the wallpaper auto-changing interval, your home screen background will cycle through your saved hearts patterns, i.e. your favorites. The further you move the slider to the left, the more often the wallpaper will change.

The amount of patterns you can add to the saved hearts tab can also be determined with the position of the slider.

Pattern Wallpapers feeds on patterns posted to the COLOURlovers community. If you are looking for something special, you can browse patterns on the website, then search the respective pattern name or the user who uploaded it within the app. Unfortunately, it seems that not all COLOURlovers designs and users are represented within Pattern Wallpapers, at least I was not able to find all the patterns I searched for.

Widget

Finally, to always stay up to date with the latest and coolest, add the Pattern of the Day widget to your home screen.
