    "Wallpapers for Me is very highly rated, and for good reason. It has a large selection of gorgeous backgrounds for your Android device, I just wish there weren't so many ads popping up all the time. Otherwise, this is a great app."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that term "wallpaper" was initially used by Microsoft Windows to refer to the desktop image or background on computers? A wallpaper is a digital image which is used as a background to a computer screen, mobile screen, tablet, or any other electronic device. Most devices come with default wallpapers, but users also have an option to change it based on their preferences by downloading either from the web or from the apps that offer wallpapers.

Meanwhile, research showed that the person's wallpaper actually determines his characteristics. In an article published on Goody Feed, the writer stated that the image you choose to show to the world tells a lot about your identity. An example is using your own selfie as your phone wallpaper can mean that you are a narcissist. Another thing that the writer claims is that using an image of a pet as a wallpaper shows that you are exceptionally creative. This is because "you tend to live in a fantasy world". On the other hand, the use of the default wallpaper can suggest that the person is minimalistic. There are numerous Android applications that allow users to choose from various wallpaper collections in high-quality.

    "I wasn't satisfied with the standard wallpapers available on my phone, so I picked up Backdrops. Backdrops has a ton of different wallpaper designs, and they look like a lot of work goes into them. A lot of times the default wallpapers available on a device look like throw ins, something that were put together at the last minute. With Backdrops you can tell that the team has focused on making very nice wallpapers that you will actually enjoy looking at."

    "This app gives wonderfully colored wallpapers!. Having 365 to choose from gives you enough variety to last you a year. Only downfall, is they do not plan on any upgrades throughout the year. They may or may not come out with more, in a year. But otherwise, the wallpapers are amazing!."

    "Geekart is not a viable solution for Android wallpaper. It's only limited to the Star Wars theme and doesn't offer any variation. When i'm looking for background wallpaper, i prefer to have a wide variety of choice. That ways i can choose the wallpaper that best fits my need."
