Even though is not as popular as Twitter or Facebook, another interesting online service is Flicker by Yahoo that allows you to share your photo albums with just some friends or with everyone in the world. If you have not used the search feature from Flickr to download wallpapers I think that this would be a good moment to do so. You will find out that there are a lot of high quality uploaded images matching your search criteria. You can filter the results by relevance, resolution or upload date.
Owning an Android device can extend the process even further. If you download an app called Flickr my Wallpaper you will be able to use random images from Flickr as a wallpaper for your Android device.
If you are wondering why Flickr my Wallpaper is such a special app, well I have to say that if you decide to install and use it, you will not have to manually search for images on Flickr to use them as your wallpaper. With a simple and clever system, Flickr my wallpaper will go online and search for wallpapers on a defined schedule to set them randomly as your Android wallpaper. Moreover, you can add a search term filter in Flickr my Wallpaper and it will go online and retrieve the wallpapers that match your query.
In Flickr my Wallpaper you can find the search on Flickr feature by long tapping on the homescreen and then selecting the application from the Live Wallpapers menu. Once you’re there, you will notice that it will start to display random images from Flickr. If you’d like to refine the wallpapers that the application will display, you must go to the Settings section and enable the download images using custom tags feature. To enter the tag that you wish to search for wallpapers on Flickr, you must tap on the Flickr tag option.
For those of you who are on a tight data connection, the developers added an interesting feature in Flickr my Wallpaper. You can enable an option to download wallpapers only when you’re on a Wi-Fi network, like in your home for example. This way, Flickr my Wallpaper will change randomly your Android wallpaper only when the network allows it to do so.
Flickr my Wallpaper is compatible with any device that is running Android 2.2 Froyo or higher and can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play.
