500px MC-Photo Live Wallpaper


Best photos for your phone/tablet screens!

"Have you ever wanted to change your smartphone's wallpaper automatically, with the timing you set, getting the highest quality photos from the best photography websites?
Well, this is what MC-Photo Live Wallpaper does." - Atooma

MC-Photo shows photos downloaded from popular photography sites: 500px, Flickr, DeviantART, WikiArt, Instagram and Panoramio. Your local albums can be used too.

Photos are changed at user-defined intervals, and they can scroll across screen and/or move as phone tilts.

Use it also as Photo-Frame either via native Android Daydream (only Android 4.2+ devices) or as a manually invoked Dayframe-like slideshow (all Android 2.3.3+ devices). (***)

NEW:
■ WikiArt - Encyclopedia of fine arts
■ Atooma plugin support
■ Tasker plugin
■ Save/Load profiles
■ DeviantART added as a photo source

Photos can be displayed as:
■ Multipicture - different photo for each screen (***)
■ Collage - several photos arranged in a collage across all screens
■ Classic - one photo across all screens

Photo sources:
■ 500px categories
■ 500px user, user following, user favorites
