A little late to the party on this one guys, I’m sure you’ll forgive me this once. It’s fair to say that I’m a big fan of customising home screens. I’ve probably spent a few hundred bucks on icon packs, Zooper Widgets, wallpaper apps and lately Kustom Live Wallpaper designs. Today’s collection is called Papuh, kinda sounds like paper or papa, (I’m not really sure where the name originated from but that doesn’t really matter.) You could call Papuh just another wallpaper application BUT this happens to be built by a nice guy around Android circles called Alex Cruz. The developer is better known for working on after-market ROMs, blogging and sharing his opinion on current matters (even if he does ruffle a few feathers.)
Certainly, the app is appealing to look at and navigate around. The wallpapers on display vary from different sources where credit is always given. You’ll find numerous different styles to suit your taste, all can be set or saved to your device’s storage. The app is cloud based which means it takes up very little space, everything populates quickly and jumping around the different options is fast and fluid. I’m on a Material Design stage and lucky for me/us there is an entire section. Take a look at the screen shots below, down the left side you’ll find the categories…
Something for everyone, I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s hard to find your favourite ROM’s wallpapers anywhere else. If you flash a lot of 3rd party ROMs you’ll be familiar with the logos and names. If you don’t, you’ll have no idea what ACIP or PAC-MAN are. This wallpaper app is for the crackflashers, the guys who beta test builds on a daily basis, often their device will be in recovery mode or be stuck in a bootloop. Honestly, you won’t find any fancy Instagram hipster filters of coffee cups and thick framed glasses, that’s ok though because there are a thousand apps like that available on Google Play already. Papuh offers us something a little different and I like it.
You can download Papuh below, priced at 99 cents. (A free version is available but why not buy the developer a coffee)
