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 weeks Wallpaper Wednesday is a pink one! That’s right– in honor of
Hallmark Valentines Day we have all the pretty hearts, pink backgrounds and chocolate to make a guy vomit. In this special Valentines edition of Wallpaper Wednesday I’m going to give you a couple cute wallpapers that are sure to land you a kiss, should you secretly load one onto your Android lovers phone.
If you don’t have anyone to share this inane holiday with or have recently suffered the wrath of heartbreak, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
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!
[Disclaimer: Live Wallpapers may cause excessive battery drain and/or lag issues and only work with supported devices running Android 2.1 or higher.]
