Default [APP][2.2+] Gainos Fresh Wallpapers / DayDream - Auto-changing images from Flickr

OVERVIEW

When I got my Nexus 4 phone, I wanted to take full advantage of the high quality screen and set a gorgeous wallpaper on it. But I realized that no matter what wallpaper I set, I always get tired of looking at it quite quickly. What I really wanted was a new beautiful wallpaper every time I would pick up my phone. And that's why I created the app Gainos Fresh Wallpapers. It selects a random photo from Flickr's Explore stream and sets that as your wallpaper at regular intervals. I have mine set to change every hour.

APP HIGHLIGHTS
  • Images are selected at random from the 'Explore' stream at Flickr. This app is not affiliated with Flickr in any way.
  • Remembers last 10 wallpapers so you can go back and choose one you previously liked.
  • Choose to change the wallpaper as frequently as 10 minute to as slow as once every week.
  • Enable Daydream mode on JellyBean+ devices to start screensaver when device is docked.
  • Share images with your social networks.
  • Works well with tablets and phones. For high resolution displays a higher quality image is downloaded.
  • Choose to download new wallpapers only over wifi to save cellular bandwidth.
  • Minimal interface that stays out of your way. Just start the service once and forgot about the app.

HOW TO GET

OTHER

I'll really appreciate your feedback and suggestions!

Thanks!!

Just installed it. Interface is clean and simple, very nice!

I don't know much about Flickr, but would it be possible to choose different "genres"? Such as scenery shots, cities, beaches etc..? That would be be a fantastic addition.

Apart from that, it seems to work exactly as described! I'll see how battery life is affected over the coming days but I don't think it'll be an issue

Great work!

P.S. Check the XDA Portal in a few days

I'm planning on adding some functionality like this in the next update or so. It will select photos by keywords or tags.

First of all, thanks a lot for the app! It's a great idea. I just have a couple of requests:

Let's say I have the app refresh every 10 minutes and I leave my phone idle for an hour. It downloads all 6 wallpapers and wastes bandwidth for no reason rather than waiting for me to see the wallpaper before going to the next one. Could you change the app to prevent these useless downloads?

If I don't like a wallpaper, is there a way in the app to skip this wallpaper? Could you make a widget to skip the current wallpaper?

The auto download on wifi only toggle is missing on the Nexus 7 with 3G (tilapia).

And it seems to get pretty low res pictures for the Nexus 7 as well, not sure if it's better on the N4 because the screen is so much smaller, and my eyes ain't perfect.
