Free App Recap January 29 – Wallpaper Apps

Jan 29, 2013

The wallpaper or background on your Android phone or tablet is something you see a lot of. For some people they see their phone background more than they see their computer background. Because of this, finding cool wallpapers for Android devices is kind of a must especially if you’re not one to take good pictures with your phone. This weeks list is all about wallpaper apps for Android phones and tablets.

MultiPicture Live Wallpaper

One of the problems with wallpapers is you can only have one of them. This makes no sense because an Android can have anyware from one to seven home screens. What MultiPicture Live Wallpaper lets you do is add one image per screen. So instead of having one picture spread out across seven screens, you’ll have seven individual images as you’re scrolling side to side. You can also have a totally separate lock screen image if you choose.

ZEDGE

ZEDGE is probably the most powerful free wallpaper application in Android market. It not only has lots of wallpapers and live wallpapers, you can also get a notification sounds and ring tones. When you want to make your Android look and sound totally different, ZEDGE is a good place to start. If you’d like to see what they have, you can go to their site and see. You can also send the image to your phone via QR code or email.

Image 2 Wallpaper

Because the Android device takes an image and stretches over all of the home screens, sometimes getting the image to look right as a wallpaper can be near impossible. Image 2 Wallpaper lets you easily make your image fit the background of your phone or tablet a lot better. The settings are a lot easier to use than some of the stock wallpaper adjustment screens. There is also a live wallpaper version.

The turn of the year always makes people look back over the previous year and see what they didn’t accomplish. This makes people want to strive for a better year, at least for about a month anyway. Part of many New Years resolutions are to travel. While picking out the location can be a challenge in itself, so can actually planning the trip and making all of the arrangements. This is what this week’s Free App Recap is all about, Travel apps.

TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor gives you a real world opinion when planning your trip. Be it the hotel to be booked at or the restaurants along the way. The opinions are from people who have already experienced these things and were kind enough to share their thoughts. A wide variety of different categories are available to search such as:

  • Hotels
  • Flights
  • Restaurants
  • and Things to do

Another great resource TripAdvisor gives is the forums where any specific travel related question can be asked and answered.

RoadNinja

Taking a road trip can either be a lot of fun or it can go the way of the Griswold family vacations. RoadNinja is aiming to make it road trips more fun. Their goal is to let travelers know about all of those great places off the beaten path like restaurants and attractions. They achieve this using the power of Foursquare to tap into where locals are checking in and what they are commenting on.
