Beautiful new backgrounds all the time, stylish design, no ads
Tapet for Android generates a new wallpaper for your device at a time interval set by you. The developers claim it as the first app that generates wallpapers. These are not live wallpapers, so you don’t have to worry about it eating your CPU or battery. Tapet is not downloading these wallpapers from the internet, so you don’t need to worry about that either. Tapet itself is randomly generating these wallpapers, ostensibly by using some clever mathematics.
With Tapet for Android, you’ll sometimes see gentle sweeping curves, sometimes tartan or check patterns, and sometimes wallpapers that are mostly plain, with a bit of a gradient and some other colors in there. Every single one of them looks really cool; very pleasing to the eye. Tapet claims the wallpapers are perfectly generated for your gizmo, so they are always exactly the right size, at the optimal resolution.
The default interval for switching is an hour, but you can have your background change as often as every 5 minutes, or only once a day or week. I set it to 5 minutes, and found myself continually looking at my phone just to see what pretty pattern had been generated by Tapet now.
The wallpapers generated by Tapet look different from anything else I’ve seen, and it gives your Android a clean, elegant appearance. You are unlikely to see exactly the same wallpaper twice, so if you really like it you can open the app to save it as a png, or even share it with a friend. Many of the wallpapers generated by Tapet are so delicious that they could be used directly as real wallpaper or textile designs.
