As we’ve mentioned many times before, customization is Android’s cornerstone. The ability to personalize almost every aspect of Android is what makes it different from, you know, that other OS. The most noticeable and easily changeable thing on a smartphone is its wallpaper. These factors are the reason we show you the 3 best wallpaper applications for Android. Those applications give you access to a plethora of wallpapers to choose from and let you customize your home screen to your heart’s desire.

Before we dive into our list make sure to visit our download page and read how to download:

1. Backdrops

An application which according to developers will be “your new favorite wallpaper app”.From minimal, cartoonish wallpapers to more realistic and serious ones, Backdrop has something for everyone. Simply tap on the wallpaper that best suits you and choose whether to save it or add it to your favorites.


“Backdrops” offers a few small features in order to help you with your search for the best wallpaper.  For example choosing a picture and holding down “tap” allows you to instantly change your lock screen’s appearance.

You probably already know Zedge as it is around more than any other app on this list. Offering Ringtones, Notification Sounds, Icon Packs and more, Zedge can be the go-to app for customization options. The wallpaper section is just as massive as the aforementioned ones.

Following a different layout than “Backdrops”, Zedge has organized its pictures in different categories. As a result, you easily navigate to your desired theme and choose your favorite picture. Moreover, the “Featured” tab offers a quick view of the most popular photos, making it easier to find something pretty.


I highly recommend that you download Zedge and try it.
