Thumbs up New (BETA): Live Home Screen with MiaWallpaper from BerryBlow

Please Login to Remove!

Hi friends,

I’m glad to represent to you our new cool idea, may be it’s not new, but it’s cool.
We found that a lot of people want to have automatically wallpaper changer for their BlackBerry devices. We’ve investigated this topic, but found that it’s can be implemented only for Blackberry Storm devices. Change wallpaper automatically from local folder it’s cool, but we decided to add very interesting feature – photos could be downloaded from the Internet, they’re updated online, every minute and always different and always new. What do you have to do – set up correct connection type, set up update interval and discover the world with people’s public Flickr photos. Now it’s only a beta, but application can download and change your device’s Home Screen wallpaper every minute. Also we have to add support of local folders, yes, it can be done soon (a couple of days).

So, feature list:

- Application downloads photos from the Internet, from Flickr public photostream, you can set up download size for one request, this can decrease amount of traffic, application uses about 20 Kb per minute, but you can decrease it, if set up update time to 3, 5, 10 or minutes

- You can set up update interval – 1, 5, 10, 30 minute and 1 hour, now works only one minute (don’t worry, we’ll implement others soon)

- Application has efficient algorithm in downloading, saving and scaling the photos

- Application has idle mode, when backlight is off application save your battery life, don’t worry about it

- Also works when device is locked

How to start:

1. Download and install application from our web site BerryBlow - Ideas for BlackBerry or from our OTA: http://m.berryblow.com

2. Check your Internet connection settings, choose from the menu – Test connection. Also you can set Internet connection type manually by choosing “Connection type”.
Please check your Internet connection before using the application!

3. Set Update interval to 1 minute (only one minute now is work) and choose from the menu Save command.

4. Done. Now application update photos from the Internet and update a home screen.

To disable the application:

1. Start it.

2. Choose Update interval = Disable, and choose Save command from the menu.


Application can have some issues, so it’s a BETA, be patient

Our Plans are:
- support update photos from local folders
- support WiFi connection type
- implement all update intervals
- fix some download issues

Try it now! We’re waiting for your active feedback!
Most active users will be awarded!

Best regards, BerryBlow developers team

I've been running it since it popped up on the blog this morning, and you are correct, it does have a very efficient method to change the photos without inhibiting the speed of the Storm (that is, when it swaps photos, nothing slows down, and there's no stopwatch or "working clock")

This application has a lot of potential.

I'll track this application's progress closely. It's small and efficient enough to not inhibit system resources, that I'd run it all the time, even though I don't have a need for it.

I'm looking forward to being able to put in your own Flickr (or Picasa, maybe?!) feed. I think that feature is brilliant!

EDIT: Also is running fine on the 9530 with OS 4.7.0.99.

Exclamation Preview and download photos for other devices from the Internet

Hi,

I can suggest other BlackBerry owners one more idea -
we can implement app that allow you view and then download photo from the Internet, so you have thousands of photos for your Home Screen. Now we have the download photos engine that we use in Storm version, but if people want we can implement this idea. Please vote here or send us feedback to [email address]
