I made this little app called Wallpaper Changer which comes with a widget to let you change your wallpaper with one click.

Simply add the wallpapers to a "rotation list" in the app and then you can rotate through your list with a single click on the widget. Additionally, you can also activate a timer which automatically changes your background image on a predefined time interval. You can also chose to enable the timer only when connected to an external power supply, though I haven't felt a significant battery drain with an interval of 30 mins yet.
If you don't use the timer, then there's no background service running or something, so it shouldn't affect your battery or performence in any way. Therefore it might take some seconds to actually change the wallpaper as the images are loaded only on demand.

This looks cool. I was thinking about something like this today. I'll check it out. Maybe you could add an option to change the wallpaper everytime you lock or unlock the phone.

thanks very nice idea... I missed it on my desire s.
It would be great to have the option to add a whole wallpaper folder (not single wallpaper ... if you have more then 10 wallpapers.... )

Agreed. I already have a folder like this for a similar app.

Can you make it so if it is set to "0" it doesn't change the wallpaper automatically (for if you do the lock/unlock)
Can you make it so it changes on phone lock so you don't see it change; when you unlock it's already a new wp?

if you uncheck "enable on boot" and never press "start rotation" then it shouldn't change your wallpaper automatically but just on widget click or on unlock (if you enabled "change on unlock").
changing the wallpaper before the unlock is a bit more complicated as the app has to change the wallpaper on screen off then. and to get screen off broadcasts, the app has to run all the time - which might drain more battery

Nice app, I'm digging the widget!

I get force closes when I add a folder (maybe it's because it has too many pics in it - about 700..)
After adding the folder I also get force closes when I go into the app.

N1 on CM7.

yeah, that's because the app runs out of memory when loading preview images for 700 files :D
i haven't though that someone would like to add that many images... i guess i have to split the previews in diffrent "pages" to fix that. be patient :)

Great, looking forward for it. 700 isn't that many again, is it? :D

well, you seem to like changes ^^
as a workaround, it'll now only show preview of the first 50 images. so you should at least open the app again ^^

Why don´t you just put an option to completely disable preview? I already know the images that are in the folder.

EDIT: Loaded a folder with 696 images without problems, set to change on unlock. Change takes 3-4 seconds after unlock, but I guess that´s normal. Gonna try later with a 2000+ images folder. Thanks.

    ok, convinced :D i'll look into that...

    edit: done. click 'add wallpaper', then select an image in the folder you'd like to add. the app will now ask you if you want to add just the selected image or the whole folder

    ok, random changing is on my todo list :)
    1
    Could you add the ability to have it change in "__ days" too? :)
    1 day = 1440 min ;)

    I would appriciate a randomized button, too.
    add a count to the setting screen to show how many wallpapers are choosen.
    both implemented in newest version

    Would it be possible to support Live Wallpapers?
    How about a URL?
    how about RSS support?
    sorry guys, but implementing these (not sure if its even possible with live wallpapers) would affect battery life and i really want to avoid that :/
