I might be an oddball, but at this point in the Android game, I really don’t spend a lot of time customizing my Nexus devices. I’ve got a Nexus 4, and Android has been really usable and very friendly since 4.1 — I haven’t felt like it’s really required me to make any changes. And in all honesty, I prefer it when my phone just works like it should. Android is pretty much there.
But sometimes, I still get the temptation to just fiddle with it and see what I can do and it’s a bit of pain mostly. At this point, there are so many ways to customize your Android device that you’ll have to start Googling just to figure out a good place to start. Kitty Play solves some parts of that problem by aggregating a ton of customization resources within one app. The last time I got the itch to customize, I gave it a whirl. Read on for my thoughts.

THe launch of the Nexus 7 created a storm in the mobile market – it quickly because THE 7″ tablet to get, bar none, finally staging something of a challenge to the iPad’s dominance in the tablet market. For a super-low $199, the Nexus comes with all the top-of-the-line hardware you can imagine: a quad-core processor, a gig of RAM and a brilliant HD LCD display.
Now although the Nexus 7 comes with a bunch of wallpapers already on the device, including the now famous Jelly Bean background, that’s never really enough, is it? If you are anything like me, you’re going to quickly go find some awesome images to customize your home screens with some brilliant imagery. Well, let your search begin here. Here are 50 of the best wallpaper images I could find to help you deck up your Nexus 7 and show it off at the next chance you get.
When we did our first roundup of wallpapers for Android just over a year ago, the response was pretty overwhelming. It wasn’t very surprising given how much emphasis most of us put on choosing the right wallpaper for our screens – mobile, desktop or anything in between. Since it is the most visible part of your Android home screen and is most probably what you see first every time you look at the phone or tablet, to expect to see something beautiful there is quite natural.
Here we are then, a year later and with a fresh batch of 60 more wallpaper images for your phone (or tablet or even your desktop for that matter). A lot of the images we have linked below are available in a variety of resolutions and will therefore suit your needs just fine. Given the crazy variety of screen sizes and resolutions on Android today, you will most probably need to crop the image to fit your screen. Shouldn’t be a problem though, since the OS should take care of letting you do that at the right time.
Live wallpapers are one of Android’s most unique and wonderful features. Available for anyone on Android 2.1 or above, they are one of the best ways to customise your Android experience. Today we will be going through some of the best live wallpapers for your Android device, so sit back and enjoy the ride. Where possible I have linked to the free/lite version; as always, if you love it, we encourage you to support the developers and buy the full version.
Be cautious, many of these live wallpapers can drain your battery.
For each wallpaper that had one, I’ve included the developer’s official video below the screenshots.
The wallpaper is one of the most basic customizations on any computing device, be it your computer screen or your phone. It is the one thing most of us change the moment we get our hands on a new device. — and, if you’re like me, every few days. Unfortunately, it isn’t difficult to get bored by the stock wallpaper collection, and finding good wallpapers for Android phones on the web is not the easiest of tasks. Let us take that challenge, then, and present to you a collection of 60 kick-ass wallpaper images to spice up your home screens.
Note that the wallpapers in the list below are in two different sizes, which are most common across the huge variety of Android phones out there. It is virtually impossible to have different versions of every wallpaper image to match all the devices out there. It shouldn’t matter much though, since Android will let you crop an image to fit the device resolution when you select a wallpaper.
