Description

500 Firepaper provides a live wallpaper and a daydream showing you the latest images from /r/EarthPorn throughout the day.

You never need to look at that boring old wallpaper again, or search for hours for a nice new one. This app will show you quality photographs from all over the world - different ones each day!

NOTICE: This app switched from using the 500px API to showing images from Reddit's /r/EarthPorn sub, as 500px is shutting down their API. Please read the statement on my G+ page - https://plus.google.com/+Chainfire/posts/W52tb4kp8zN

Configurable options include the refresh interval, brightness of the images, oversaturation, and blurring.

Please note that high resolution imagery and animation takes quite a bit of memory, so obviously this app is aimed at high-end devices.

If you are a Muzei user, 500 Firepaper also presents itself as an art source to Muzei.

FAQ

What does buying Pro get me?
I've already made all the features available to you for free. Supporting my developments is optional, but certainly appreciated.

Why is there no save feature ?
Not allowed per API terms.

Three finger tap to go to the next image doesn't seem to work, what now ?
On some devices (like the HTC One) you need to put down your fingers one-by-one.

Why does this use so much RAM ?
High-resolution imagery takes a lot of memory in uncompressed form, and multiple buffers are required. But fear not, should your device need the memory while the wallpaper/daydream is not visible, the memory occupied by the app will automagically be released and repurposed.

Can the cached images be put somewhere else, like on my sd card ?
No, they cannot.

Do you want a balloon ?
No, but thanks for asking.

FAQ


What does buying Pro get me?
In cooperation with 500px, purchasing Pro will extend the maximum cache time from 24 hours to 7 days, and will also give you the option to (re-)set any image from the History Browser as your background (for up to 7 days)


Why is there no save feature ?
Not allowed per 500px API terms.


Three finger tap to go to the next image doesn't seem to work, what now ?
On some devices (like the HTC One) you need to put down your fingers one-by-one.


Why can't I pause indefinitely or show an image for longer than a day ?
Per 500px API terms the app cannot keep an image around for longer than 24 hours - unless you purchase Pro.


Why does this use so much RAM ?
High-resolution imagery takes a lot of memory in uncompressed form, and multiple buffers are required. But fear not, should your device need the memory while the wallpaper/daydream is not visible, the memory occupied by the app will automagically be released and repurposed.


Disk usage just keeps growing. Why can't I configure any limit ?
The built-in cache limit is around 256 MB - I've never seen it actually reach that limit before cleaning itself up, though.


Can the cached images be put somewhere else, like on my sd card ?
No, they cannot.


Do you want a balloon ?
No, but thanks for asking.
