500 Firepaper

500 Firepaper


500 Firepaper provides a live wallpaper and a daydream showing you the latest images from 500px throughout the day.

You never need to look at that boring old wallpaper again, or search for hours for a nice new one. This app will show you quality photographs from all over the world - different ones each day!

The feature (popular, editor's choice, fresh, etc) and categories displayed are of course configurable, as is the refresh interval and the brightness of the images.

Please note that high resolution imagery and animation takes quite a bit of memory, so obviously this app is aimed at high-end devices.

If you are a Muzei user, 500 Firepaper also presents itself as an art source to Muzei.

FAQ

What does buying Pro get me?
In cooperation with 500px, purchasing Pro will extend the maximum cache time from 24 hours to 7 days, and will also give you the option to (re-)set any image from the History Browser as your background (for up to 7 days)

Why is there no save feature ?
Not allowed per 500px API terms.

Three finger tap to go to the next image doesn't seem to work, what now ?
On some devices (like the HTC One) you need to put down your fingers one-by-one.

Why can't I pause indefinitely or show an image for longer than a day ?
Per 500px API terms the app cannot keep an image around for longer than 24 hours - unless you purchase Pro.

Why does this use so much RAM ?
High-resolution imagery takes a lot of memory in uncompressed form, and multiple buffers are required. But fear not, should your device need the memory while the wallpaper/daydream is not visible, the memory occupied by the app will automagically be released and repurposed.

Disk usage just keeps growing. Why can't I configure any limit ?
The built-in cache limit is around 256 MB - I've never seen it actually reach that limit before cleaning itself up, though.

Can the cached images be put somewhere else, like on my sd card ?
No, they cannot.

Do you want a balloon ?
No, but thanks for asking.

options can be added... make least % of battery required to 15%.. Option to add a native wallpaper folder (wallpapers saved in the phone), when not updating wallpapers from online instead of that just one default wallpaper selection, so the native wallpapers cycle one after another.. - NOTE3LTE Kitkat 4.4.2

Perfect except for small issues Amazing app but... I really would like to have scrollable wallpapers. I know that through Muzei you can achieve so, but the wallpaper update system doesn't work and you lose some features such as the triple click or the three finger tap. Please add the scrollable wallpaper option.
