7. 7Fon

This is one of the best wallpaper apps for filtering by a huge number of different options. You can click on the information button of any individual image to bring up a color palette from it. Otherwise, you can click the palette icon in the upper right corner of the app’s home screen.

8. Muzei

The app is slightly different from many other similar wallpaper makers due to its approach to images and navigation, as it prioritizes your own wallpapers on the device. If you have many pictures on your smartphone, you can interchange them.

If you’d like to use the images from the “My Pictures” folder, you should go to Settings to set how often these images should change.

Unlike any other app on this list, Muzei doesn’t leave the selected image unchanged, which is quite reasonable: the thing is that one potential drawback of using a real photo as a background is that it can make it difficult to read the text and recognize the icons.

To fix this, Muzei applies blur to every picture. When you double-tap on an empty space of the home screen, it will toggle the blurred and original image for a few seconds. And if you prefer to go into settings to control the amount of blur and darkening, you will be able to do it through the main menu of Muzei.

After the 1st launch,  click on the “Activate” button, and you will see the first picture called “Starry Night” appear on your desktop.

Every day you will get a new picture and a small explanation about the author and his work, which will be displayed in the menu. More detailed information is shown on an external resource after clicking on the name of the picture.

The development of this wonderful application was carried out by  Roman Nurik, who has already become famous thanks to his creation of a “smart” watch called DashClock.

Like the watch, the new program is completely free and open source, which makes it possible for third-party application designers to improve the Muzei app.
