Wallaby

Wallaby


A simple utility to set the wallpaper from bitmaps selected with the Gallery activity.

It's always been a mystery to me why the standard Android wallpaper setter always distorts images even when I have them sized correctly. I never seem to be able to use the scaling controls in a way that doesn't damage the bitmap.

There are other simple wallpaper setters out there, but so buggy and poorly made. I decided to write yet another. Enjoy.

Images selected that are the same height as the screen will default to being used as-is. You can override this behavior with a checkbox which will proportionally scale to screen height.

ATTENTION NOOK USERS: I can't reproduce your environment. Please email me so we can work on the bugs you're seeing. Really, anyone who is having problems, I need more than Market comments. [email protected]

For those feeling generous, there is also an identical donation version of Wallaby for sale in the Market called Wallaby Donate.
