Spice up your life with new Windows Phone Central wallpapers

You've just purchased your shiny new Windows Phone, and all is well. But there's something missing. You can't quite place it, right? Allow us to help you out - you've not got any Windows Phone Central wallpapers! Fear not as we've crafted some new beauties for you to add to your Windows Phone, should you not be making use of new lockscreen functionality for a favourite app of course.

We previously released some simplistic wallpapers, which were met with much praise. This new set follows the same path regarding simplicity, but sport our new logo and a cleaner look with similarities to the main background / wallpaper of the website. There are a number of apps that take full advantage of lockscreen functionality in Windows Phone 8, which are well worth checking out - but if they're not for you then be sure to show off the number one destination for related news!

You can download the pack of twenty (one per-theme on Windows Phone) from SkyDrive.

  • Nice. Was able to download that zip, open & explore it ... saving the pictures I want all on my WP7. I didn't think wp7 could handle that but it does. SkyDrive web works well.
  • Same here great job guys! And using the skydrive to share files like this is simple, fast, and AWESOME!

  • If you have WPCentral App you can view the article and on top menu tap "more" and tap on "view links" then tap on the link for skydrive it will download and open, just choose the images one by one and save it in your phone.

  • The title photo has a wallpaper that says Window Phone Central? (Singular window?)
  • Heh, indeed. It was an error with the version I used for the photo. Didn't think anyone would notice, but evidently so!
  • From your PC download the file and upload it to SkyDrive, then access the image from your phone though the SkyDrive app.
  • You can do it all right from your phone, actually - no need to download from a PC first.
  • Love the wallpapers!
  • Maybe its just me, but I do not like the purple/pink logo.
  • I don't like it either... it's nice as a blue live-tile, horrible in pink
  • How do I change the ugly one that starts with the app?
  • <p>Great job</p>
  • I hope "Domain Details.xls" under "misc" doesn't contain sensitive data ;)
  • Référence au mot «or de la montre", beaucoup de gens vont penser immédiatement de nouveaux riches, qui, ces dernières années, de nombreux films et travaux télévision et vivent autour de l'interprétation d'une excellente relation. La montre que l'on appelle l'or, l'or n'est pas fait pleinement usage de la table, parce que les caractéristiques de l'or n'est pas un mouvement de fabrication approprié, de sorte que le sommet actuel mouvement de montre de marque est toujours le laiton préféré. L'or est la véritable signification de la table avec un boîtier replique montre en or et un bracelet faisant table, mais une partie de son or et de bijoux en or bien connue est très différente.
  • It wont let me download it
