How to create the perfect app

Build Wallpaper Android Apps Easily with AppsGeyser

August 21st, 2012

In the past, we’ve talked about making a family of apps. It’s not always easy to come up with related apps, so we’re striving to make it easier. Wallpaper apps have become very popular. These apps allow you to download various images to be your Android phone background. When you’re building a family of apps, one obvious choice is the wallpaper app.

The wallpaper app is great for a few reasons:

  1. It’s easy to make.
  2. It’s a very popular app style
  3. Since the wallpaper is on the screen all the time, it keeps customers aware of the related apps.

Now that I’ve convinced you to make a wallpaper app, here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Some images – either the images themselves or a link to the desired Facebook gallery.
  2. Your favorite image shrunk to the specifications of an icon. (72×72, png or jpg)

    My son has bunch of weird, colorful art that would make great wall papers. He did these a few years back and is losing interest in art, but I want to show him that he can make money at it. Is it possible to make a self-contained wallpaper Android app, fill it full of art in his style, and then sell it on an app store? I was thinking 0.99 cents and have a website ready (not done yet) for him so people can go to his site where his portfolio would be and stuff. The art is pretty cool and I think it would get him interested in art again in general. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for your attention.
