Three coolest apps to download free Wallpapers for Google Android phone - Best Wallpapers app

In last post I talked about how you can quickly replace the default android home screen and theme with fancy iPhone look alike theme. But you must have noticed that free themes comes with limited wallpapers and you may not like the ones which are there in the theme. This can be taken care by downloading cool and free wallpapers for your android using wallpaper apps. These free wallpapers can be used with your HTC, Samsung, Motorola or any other Android phone.

There are two kinds of wallpapers for Android, Image Background Wallpapers and Live Wallpapers. Image backgrounds are the traditional wallpapers which we know and "live wallpapers" are the new type of wallpapers which comes with animation effect and are interactive. I am going to cover traditional wallpapers in this post and I may talk about live wallpapers in some future posts but you can find and download cool live wallpapers from Android market today.

I am covering three of the coolest apps for free Android wallpapers in this series of posts. In this post I am talking about the first coolest wallpapers app and remaining two apps in coming posts.

Best Wallpapers : This is the first coolest app for Android which I am covering in this series of three. Best Wallpapers app is simple and provides collection of beautiful and cool wallpapers. It provides all the necessary basic features which you may need when it comes to searching, downloading and setting wallpaper for your Android. For searching this cool app in Android market use keywords "best wallpapers" and you should be able to find it. When you tap the app from the list then you would see its information as given in screenshot below.

As you can see the title of the application displayed in Android market info is "Best Wallpapers & Backgrounds". Install this app on your phone and you are ready to go. Once installed, tap its icon to launch it and you would see its first screen as shown below.

Best Wallpapers - Main Screen
On its main screen it displays the recently popular wallpapers. You can see more wallpapers of this category by tapping "Next" button. You can always come back to see previous wallpapers by tapping "Prev" button. This is just one of the categories of wallpapers and you can tap "Categories" button to see the list of Categories as shown in screenshot below.

From main screen you can tap a search icon to find wallpapers which are not listed in predefined categories menu of the app. For example, you can search for "iPhone" to find the wallpapers of iPhone. This can be very useful if you have already applied iPhone theme using "Adw Launcher" as I explained in my previous post and looking for more cool iPhone wallpapers. If you have not read that post then you can read it here - How-to apply iPhone theme to Google Android mobile phone using ADW Launcher. Following screenshots shows the the search result of iPhone wallpapers.

"Filter Adult" is specially useful setting and when checked, it filters the adult images and displays the other non -adult wallpapers. "Add to favorites" setting when checked, keeps adding the wallpapers to your favorite when you set those on your phone.
