The Wall! UWP - superb daily wallpaper picker

Published by at

Bing's image of the day makes a pretty great wallpaper option on Windows 10 Mobile - really high quality graphics. But what if you want something less random? Nothing to do with Pink Floyd's epic release, The Wall! is a new UWP app that gives you more control, as detailed below.

From the Store description:

Choose from more than a thousand high-quality images from various sources: Unsplash, Pixabay, Pexels and many others.

Or let the application do it for you every day. It is also possible to ask Cortana to pick background or lock screen image for you.

Are you a happy owner of Microsoft Band? No problem! The application not only allows you to change the image on your device but it'll also pick up matching color scheme.

The Wall! works very well too, here are some screenshots from a quick play with it:

This kicks off with a random selection to choose from, but it's easy to use the custom hamburger menu to pop up other selections, including 'Categories'.

Again, browse these for things you like to see every day and then browse the contents of the category...

Find an image you like and set it as background (to Start) or as your phone's Windows 10 Lock screen - there's the chance to crop manually - otherwise an automatic slice will be taken from the centre....

And there's the new wallpaper in action; (right) for premium users (don't worry, it's only a one off IAP of $1, though you can donate more if you like the app), The Wall! can randomly pick daily wallpapers for you based on your preferrred categories.

Although there's no real benefit in using this with Continuum, other than screen real estate for browsing, here's the obligatory shot to prove the full, responsive UWP app mettle:

Or, of course, you could set this up to work on your Windows 10 tablet or laptop too. Nicely programmed, nicely presented, and not expensive.
