Who doesnâ€™t love a good wallpaper? Theyâ€™re one of the first things we customize on our mobile devices. Some people pick one and stick with it, others change them like theyâ€™re TV channels. Wallpapers are as unique as the individuals who use them. They represent our moods, thoughts, ideals, and just plain insanity. I mean if it werenâ€™t for wallpapers, app markets wouldnâ€™t have the ludicrous numbers they so proudly boast.
Did you miss me? Probably not, huh? Well last week’s Wallpaper Wednesday was scratched due to my relentless search for a new vehicle. Long story short, I now have a new vehicle, and to celebrate the occasion I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday to the automobile. Those vehicles we love to hate and hate to love. They get us where we need to go (sometimes) and empty our wallets faster than our wives/girlfriends (love you hun!). If you’re a car lover then you’ll want to check out some of these sweet automobile wallpapers that are sure to add a few extra horsepower to your device’s look.
Your weekly Live Wallpaper Announcement
Remember, live wallpapers can only be used with supported devices running Android 2.1+. I see a lot of people downrating live wallpapers in the Android Market because “it won’t open,” or “I can’t find it.” Live wallpapers aren’t like regular apps, they won’t show up in your app tray and they don’t “open.” You can access your wallpapers a couple of different ways:
- Long press screen>Wallpapers>Live wallpapers
- Press your device’s menu button>Wallpaper>Live Wallpaper
Please make sure your phone supports live wallpapers and you are familiar with how to use them before giving developers a bad rating. It really isn’t fair to them. Now let’s check out those wallpapers!
[Note: In order to save wallpapers you have to open them in a new tab or window — Pics must be resized to fit your device]
So I started off wanting to showcase live wallpapers and soon found out that there really aren’t any free car live wallpapers worth downloading (get on it devs). That means this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday will feature your trusty ol’ static wallpapers. Enjoy!
