7 Best Wallpaper Apps For Android

Wallpapers are an expression of yourself. Personally, I love to switch my digital wallpapers often as I quickly get bored. But finding the right wallpaper for your device can be challenging as you would want a beautiful picture that won’t get in the way of seeing your icons. A simple change of the background image can make the whole user interface feel new and refreshed.

You can obviously search the internet for some awesome looking wallpapers, download them and then set them up as wallpapers. Lately a lot of android apps are emerging that provide beautiful wallpapers so that you don’t have to scout the internet for wallpapers and I have curated the 7 best android wallpaper apps in this list. All of these apps have something great to offer.

1. Tapet


Tapet generates high quality material style random wallpapers based on the screen resolution of your device. Tapet has got a huge database of amazing wallpapers. Wallpapers change randomly based on the time interval which is configurable. The developer promises that new wallpapers will be added for every update, so there is very rare chance of you seeing the same wallpaper twice.

After installing the app, you can start looking at the wallpapers and choose the one you like. You just need to swipe left, right or down to browse through them, and if you want to go back to the previous one, you just need to swipe up. Once you’ve found what you want, just click on the check button and it will change your wallpaper with something that fits your screen.

Murrum is the best minimalistic wallpaper app I’ve ever come across. The wallpapers provided in the app are truly amazing.

Since all the wallpapers are stored on cloud, it will download the wallpaper first. Once it displays the wallpaper on the screen, you can apply it as a wallpaper or save it in your Gallery. While setting a wallpaper, the app also lets you crop the wallpaper.

6. Colors


Colors was my favorite wallpaper app until the material style wave took over everything. It doesn’t provide any special kind of pattern-like wallpapers. It just offers solid color wallpapers. Plain and simple. A lot of solid colors are available in the app. However, if you don’t find the color you like it lets you enter color HEX codes. So basically you can set any solid color as your wallpaper.

Terra provides a bit different kind of wallpapers than other wallpaper apps. Instead of wallpapers with patterns and textures, Terra provides beautiful satellite images. It includes 7 wallpapers of 6840×5900, 14 wallpapers of 4800×2740, and 38 wallpapers of 4800 x 4800 px resolution. It also has Muzei support.
