Ever have a hard time on an Android tablet in setting an image as the wallpaper? Using the Gallery app, you’re pretty much forced to crop the image and have no way to select the entire thing. Before today, I hadn’t found an app that will let an entire image as the wallpaper.
Today, though, I found an app that handles this perfectly: PicSpeed HD Wallpapers 170,000. Here’s how it works (this is in Ice Cream Sandwich on the ASUS Transformer Prime, but I’m sure it’ll work the same way in Honeycomb).
First, Install the app. Then, go to the Gallery, select an image, and then go to the menu and select “Set picture as”:
You’ll get a list of “Set as” options, including one called “Set as Wallpaper.” Select that one:
It will give you a UI including three icons directly underneath the picture. One of them is widescreen–select that, and the image will be used without cropping (assuming it’s the right size and aspect ratio):
Keep the “Scrollable” option checked, then hit “Set.” That should do it. It’s the first app I’ve found that will set an image as scrollable wallpaper with no cropping whatsoever.
