8 of the best free wallpaper apps for Android

Wallpaper (Google)

Wallpaper by Google is not the company’s most famous app, but is a solid choice for anyone who wants a full range of different wallpaper options available to themselves. You can choose between your photos, on-device wallpaper, live wallpaper, or choose a specific category, such as ‘Cityscapes’ or ‘Textures’.

Once you select your category, you can either choose a specific image, or choose to automatically change the wallpaper each day with a new image in that category. One of the benefits of Google’s wallpaper app is that the repository of images is constantly updated.

Perhaps a possible downside, if you are looking for a specific image or item, is that there is no search functionality within the app. However, this is a solid option to consider and it is all free. If you have many wallpaper applications installed, you can also view and launch them through the wallpaper app.

7Fon is the first option in this list that provides the option to sign in to an app, but it is not completely necessary to use it.

Backgrounds HD is another in this list that allows users to submit their own images (provided you sign in to the app) but has fewer features than the 7Fon above, which may appeal to some.

Mujei takes a slightly different approach to wallpaper, and how you navigate different options for other applications in this list, by prioritizing images on your own device. If you do not have a shot on your phone, you can choose to use one of the select pieces each day.

If you choose to use images in your ‘My Pictures’ folder, you must change the number of times images to dive into settings. Unlike every other app in this list, Mujei does not leave your selected image untouched, which is smart. One of the possible downsides of using an actual photo as a background is that it can make the text harder to read and the icon difficult to exclude.

To fix this, Muje applies a blur to each image. Double tapping the blank space on your home screen will switch between blur and original image for a few seconds. If you want to dive into the settings to control the amount of blur, switch or switch the image to grayscale, you can do so via the main app menu. Muze is probably the first app you want to install in this list, as it can be used with some others.

AMOLED Wallpaper

Smartphones with AMOLED displays are unique, as they give you the opportunity to save extra battery life. There is no backlighting of any black pixels on the AMOLED screen, so not only is energy saving, but vice versa. If your phone does not have an AMOLED display, you can still use these wallpapers, but by using them, you will not be able to get better battery life.

AMOLED wallpapers, whether for your home screen or lock screen, look exceptionally cool and have plenty of them to choose from. Unfortunately, this means that there are a lot of lame apps in the Play Store that are full of ads designed to waste your time. We’ve got one (aptly named AMOLED Wallpaper), which is nothing short of commercials and has a wide, streamlined selection.

Upon opening the application, you will be faced with some random classification of the latest additions. But, if you go to the categories tab, you’ll see the usual suspects: abstract shapes, space subjects, animals, and more, all with a dark black background.
