Changing wallpaper is a quick and easy way to give your phone a brand new look. Android has literally thousands of apps that can provide cool and unique wallpapers for your phone. It can be hard to find the apps that are actually good. We’ve compiled a list of 10 wallpaper apps that really shine. Use these apps to keep your phone looking fresh!

Backdrops

Backdrops has been my personal go-to wallpaper app for a long time. When people ask “what wallpaper is that” I usually direct them to Backdrops. All of the wallpapers in the app have been created by the Backdrops team. They’re all 100% original creations that you won’t find anywhere else. New wallpapers are added almost every day.

Walli

Walli takes a similar approach to Backdrops. The wallpapers in Walli and made exclusively for phones. A community of artists curate the wallpapers so you don’t have to sift through piles of garbage. The app is well-designed and allows you to like art so you can find it easily later. The wallpapers are available in multiple sizes.

Tapet

Tapet is like the Pandora of wallpaper apps. Wallpapers are generated based on your likes and dislikes. As you scroll through wallpapers and rate them with a thumbs up or thumbs down, the suggestions change. If you like a certain pattern it will show up more. Same for color and shapes. It’s a great way to get completely custom looks.

Mysplash

If you’re not familiar with Unsplash.com, it’s a website that has high-resolution photos that you can use for free. Mysplash is a wallpaper app that uses the photos from Unsplash. You get thousands of beautiful photos that are perfect for wallpapers. You can search and even download raw photos.

Muzei

Muzei is a different type of wallpaper app. It’s the only “live” wallpaper app on our list. I put quotes around “live” because it’s not the traditional live wallpaper app. The wallpaper isn’t in constant movement. Instead, it can be automatically changed throughout the day or every day. Many other wallpaper apps work with Muzei.

Google released the wallpaper app that comes built-in to the Pixel to the Play Store. Wallpapers by Google gives you access to a few different categories of wallpapers that are often found on Google devices. You can also set a category as your daily wallpaper and have it changed automatically.

Weatherback

Weatherback is an app that gives you the feeling of a live weather wallpaper, but it uses your own wallpaper as a background. The app will put rain, fog, or snow on top of your own wallpaper. The effect matches the real weather, and since it’s not a live wallpaper you don’t have to worry about battery life.
