Reboot: Welcome to the World of Wallpapers!

WorldOfWallpapers01

Welcome back to the World of Wallpapers!

This is a reboot of an old series held by Cliff Wade. Here, I will be running you through various wallpapers and wallpaper apps of all kinds. Like many of you, I suppose, I am a big believer in making my phone mine. Sadly, I don’t have the skill to create my own wallpapers, so I use other people’s work to make my home screen exactly as I like it! To kick things off, I will be introducing two apps and one wallpaper artist who does not have an app yet.

Behang by Ted Bates Jr.

 

First up to the plate is Behang, a paid app coming in at $1.00, but well worth the price of admission. If you are not keen on spending $1.00, you can always head on over to his site and download whatever walls you desire. Behang was created by Ted Bates Jr. who can be found on Google+ or Twitter. All of his walls are cloud based meaning that the app does not require updates in order to add more walls to his collection. Every wallpaper is unique and created by knokfirst. The real beauty of Behang is not just the dazzling walls, but the app itself. Behang can be used as a base app to add extensions on to. This means that you can download other apps from the Play Store and they will be added into Behang. All you have to do is change the source. Ted Bates had some help with this monster of an app. Anthoney Kiniyalocts was the developer behind this master piece. Ted Bates is the wallpaper creator.

Nóloc by Richard Colón

Next up is an extension to the previously mentioned Behang. Nóloc costs $1.50 on the Play Store. With Nóloc, you get photography type wallpapers that were taken and edited by Richard Colón. You can find Richard on Google+. While Nóloc has a fine collection of walls to use on your device, the app comes with an added bonus. Nóloc has over 18 high quality Zooper widgets to go along with its beautiful walls. These widgets require Zooper Pro to be installed in order to use them. While you can’t use the walls without Behang installed, and you can’t use the widgets without Zooper Pro installed, everything you are paying for is quality work and the designers earned their two dollars with beautiful products that I use in almost every home screen I create.

Partimus Prime (Jesus Partida)

Partimus is a talented individual who is a member of the GFX Bandits. He also is on the design team for Vanilla Android as well. He creates wallpapers and custom boot animations and who knows what else! He does not keep his work in one place, but you can find posts of his walls on his Google+ account or on his Google+ page. Yes, his account and his page are two separate things, but whatever he posts to his page, he seems to share to his G+ account as well. He is the mastermind behind the banner for the World of Wallpaper Reboot!
