Flickr Live Wallpaper for Windows Phone

Windows Phone Lockscreen apps seem to be appearing out of nowhere these days.  You have Befriend, Paper Shuffle, Lock Themes and now you can add Flickr to the growing number of wallpaper sources. Flickr Live Wallpaper is a lockscreen wallpaper app that pulls images from the popular online photography source.

The nice thing about Flickr Live Wallpaper is that you can name your photo source, use multiple sources and if need be, crop the photos so they fit a little better on the screen.

Flickr Live Wallpaper

When you first launch Flickr Live Wallpaper you have to set up a source for your photos. There are four sources to choose from:

  • Interesting Photos: The simple and straight forward choice. This source pulls from Flickr's Interesting Photos feature.
  • Flickr Group: This source requires you to identify a specific group on Flickr to pull photos from. You can search by keyword or name a group directly.
  • Flickr User: The user source will pull images from a specific Flickr user. You can search for Flickr users by username or email. You can use a Flickr user's full photostream or a specific photoset from that user.
  • Keyword: Just type in the keyword describing the type of photos you are looking for and a collection of photos matching will be generated from Flickr's galleries.

Once you get your source in order, just tap save and you will be taken to the main pages of Flickr Live Wallpaper where the source will be displayed on your Sources Page.

From the main pages of Flickr Live Wallpaper you can view the current wallpaper, crop it to better fit the screen, view and select your sources (multiple sources are allowed), and view the app's settings. Settings cover the frequency of the wallpaper rotation and whether or not you want to update only when you're on Wifi.   Unfortunately, Flickr Live Wallpaper lacks the ability to save wallpapers to your Windows Phone for more extended use.  However, if you don't want to rotate the images and run across one that you want to use for an extended period of time, just check the "Lock this image as my wallpaper" box.

Flickr Live Wallpaper is a nice option to keep your Windows Phone lockscreen wallpaper fresh. It joins the growing number of quality lockscreen apps in the Windows Phone Store.

Flickr Live Wallpapers is a free app for your Windows Phone and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Store.

UPDATE: It didn't take long but Flickr Live Wallpaper was just updated to version 1.1 that brings a name change and new feature.  Flickr Live Wallpaper is now Photostream and you can add galleries from your Windows Phone Pictures Hub as sources.  It's a nice feature to allow you mingle your photos with those from Flickr.
