“Buzzz!!…..buzzzz!!”- Your phone vibrates and what’s the first thing that adds a ray of glimmering hope to your day? Your homescreen….isn’t it? So, a wallpaper on your device plays a vital role in adding vibrance and ecstasy to your life. But it would very inconvenient and tedious to simply browse for images all the time. For that, we have compiled a list of best free Android wallpaper apps for you. Have fun exploring them.
Are you a fan of droid miniatures? Do you want them to enrich your virtual world? Then Droid Wallpapers is the perfect application for you. The app enlists a series of images depicting Droid figures in action, holding something cranky or expressing some deep emotions, which you can choose to download, share or set as your wallpaper on the tap of a single button. My personal favorite is the one that shows a Green Droid lifting his ‘hard-earned lollipop trophy’. But the list is very limited and doesn’t get updates on a regular basis. In addition to that, the ads popping up frequently may also annoy you. You may still like using the app though until you get bored after a month or so.
So, what’s so special about this app? Well to be frank, it’s cool, simple and offers a vast range of unique wallpapers for ‘me’. You can tap and choose any wallpaper you like from a number of categories like animals, cartoon, nature and much more. Oh! There is a ‘popular section too’… that showcases a list of trending images downloaded by the users. You will simply fall in love with the vivid unique photographs and designs. There is also an additional feature that enables you to randomize your homescreen with live wallpapers. But to be honest, this application has a huge file size, almost double as that of the other wallpaper apps, and consumes a lot of data too. Well, if you like to frequently jaw-drop yourself looking at those beautiful designs, then this app is perfect for you.
Woah! That’s a cool name! Wanna wallrox your homescreen with exclusive designs? You will simply fall in love with the content this app offers you with. Choose your wallpaper from various categories like landscapes, minimalistic as well as materialistic designs, gradients and the list simply goes on. Just tap on a single button to instantly apply a wallpaper or either crop it a bit based on your desire. You may also attempt to just save it for future. The best thing about Wallrox is, neither it occupies much storage space nor it consumes much data, all thanks to the app being cloud-based. It’s smooth and has been heavily optimized to deliver the users with a smooth and wonderful experience. But again the list of images is a tad limited and the ads popping up at the bottom may be undesirable for you. Another unique thing about Wallrox is, it also offers users with QHD/UHD wallpaper which is very uncommon for any application of such category.
I would recommend this app for users possessing a test of experimenting new and innovative things. Because, Walloid as the name suggests, can either stock, custom or materialize your Android device with thrilling wallpapers. In other words, by using this unique application you get the privilege to homescreen your device with stock based or custom-rom wallpapers. Don’t worry, material designs are also present to fulfill your basic requirements. You get a range of stock wallpapers of various companies to choose from like HTC, LG, Nvidia and so on. The custom based Cyanogen wallpapers surprised me though!
This tiny application having only a file size of 2 MB can offer you an array of gigantic services that you can’t even imagine. Neither does it consume much of your data nor does it drain your battery. How? Because it operates on a single algorithm that can generate ‘gazillion’ amount of patterns based on your choice. In other words Tapet, a pattern based wallpaper app, can randomize your selected design from its vast array of wallpapers automatically without depending on data. It works primarily offline and offers heavy customization to suit the dynamic needs of a user. You can even set regular intervals for refreshing your homescreen and hence, don’t need to worry about anything else. The best part about Tapet is that the app by default fits the wallpaper based on the screen resolution and ppi of your device. But yes, the application may crash once or twice after installation and you probably won’t face such type of issues later on.
Too much wally…wally eh? Well, it’s evident and Wallmax does live upto its name. To be frank, it is phenomenal all thanks to its simple and responsive UI along with a wide range of marvelous designs and photographs. You can choose which image to download based on resolution and category as well. To be frank, the devs have implement categories in the form of hash-tags like #cars, #anime, #videogames and so on. Wait what? Anime and video-games? Yes, you heard right! This is perhaps the only app that has quality as well as unique content related to these two categories. If you are an anime or a gaming geek or both, you’ll blindly claim this as you best wallpaper application so far. In addition to that you get the privilege to create your favorites gallery and also access vital info on individual images like size, views and number of likes. But the only limitation about Wallmax is that the content is not refreshed on a regular basis.
The only wallpaper app to receive the ‘Editor’s Choice’ tag, Backgrounds HD has the largest unique wallpaper collection as compared to other applications. Yes, all the rest of the common features are there like categories, live homescreen update, featured content and so on. But it has a couple of unique wildcards in play too like the history tab, that enlists your previously applied wallpapers, and the auto-scrolling feature, which automatically scrolls the wallpaper on your homescreen. In addition to that, the app also offers a clock widget that automatically tick-tocks your main screen and hence, adds more realism and beauty to it.
