Hi guys, welcome to WallpaperPlus PRO!

So you are running CyanogenMod but you really miss your favorite wallpaper from HTC Sense and wish there was an easy way to find and set your wallpaper?

Good news, this app is that easy way!

This app is a All-in-One wallpaper chooser that contains wallpapers from various ROMs such as AOSP, AOKP, CyanogenMod, LG, Oppo, Moto, Sense, TouchWiz and more...

Wallpaper selection is simple. Pick a category, choose a wallpaper and set it or save it to your sdcard.

Guys, I really hope you enjoy this app. I have worked hard to make it as smooth and clean as possible. Over time it will only get better. Thats a promise

For even more wallpapers, check out my buddy @rwilco12 's app Rwilco12's Wallpaper Gallery. It has more custom wallpapers which aren't so OEM specific

"This app is a All-in-One wallpaper chooser that contains wallpapers from various ROMs such as AOSP, AOKP, CyanogenMod, LG, Oppo, Moto, Sense, TouchWiz and more..."

Just a stupid question.
Do you have the legal rights to use the Wallpapers of these companys in your App?

Hey, I already wrote a review on the Play Store, but I think it makes more sense to post here, so ...

I really like the idea behind your app, but it needs a few improvements:
  1. The Sense wallpapers from the HTC One are distorted. (They originally had a resolution of 1080x1920, as they were intended for a non-scrolling launcher).
  2. I think each image on a page should have its own loading indicator (sometimes loading is really slow and it would be nice to have an indication that something is actually happening in the background...)
  3. When previewing a wallpaper, changing device orientation makes the loading indicator disappear. And sometimes, loading never finishes.
  4. This is just a minor thing: It would be cool if you could just swipe through pages instead of using buttons. Or maybe use and endless scrolling list?

Well, but since you are apparently already working on a new UI, my only complaint remains the issue with the wallpapers from the HTC One... are you planning to add support for 1080x1920 images, for non-scrolling launchers?

So you took other people's job to sell it for yourself.

With a free app it would be fare, but with a paid / add app ... doesn't it break the rule of XDA ?

WP tries to get as much wallpaper onto the screen as possible in a multi screen layout for scrolling. There will be some cropping if necessary.

Yes, thanks for the review. I presumed there would be issues depending on phone and launcher used. Each and every wallpaper gets converted, scaled to a specific size, and then is ran through pngcrush, which optimizes and reduces the overall file size of the wallpapers. There may be some minor quality loss. All of this is to hopefully improve the overall speed of getting the wallpapers and setting them. Its a trade-off, quality for speed. At least until I can make improvements for speed that won't affect quality so drastically.

And yes, most of your remaining concerns should be addressed in a future update.
