Wallpaper Wednesday – St. Patrick’s Day Edition

Wallpaper Wednesday – St. Patrick’s Day Edition

Mar 16, 2011

Who doesn’t love a good wallpaper? They’re one of the first things we customize on our mobile devices. Some people pick one and stick with it, others change them like they’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 weren’t for wallpapers, app markets wouldn’t have the ludicrous numbers they so proudly boast.

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday is dedicated to all those shamrock picking, green beer drinking, leprechaun chasing Irish folk. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re going to feature some wallpapers that are sure to bring out the green in you. Put your Irish pride on display (literally) and remind people that “Andy” the Android just so happens to be GREEN — hmmm. Erin Go Bragh!

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!

Live Wallpapers

    Well after searching long time I just found my favourite:


    The glitter effect is amazing and it offers sooooo cooool images!


    I also like that the app gives you the opportunity to upgrade to the

    version totally free.

    Is ad supported but worth it since the pro costs more than 2 bucks.

    I have tried it and it worked like a charm for me….
