    If you want some real beautiful material-ish wallpapers, just download Backdrops and Wallrox on Google Play. Trust me.

  • Just install Backdrops app. Gorgeous wallpapers galore. All in really high resolution for a super sharp and crisp image on the screen.

  • Tommy

    So. Many. Ads. :(

    • legendlord4751

      This is why I use adblock plus. Sorry AA, i love your content, but there’s so many freaking ads i can’t bear to look at the page

      • Use their new app. It doesn’t have any ads.

        • legendlord4751

          I do, but when I’m on PC i have to use adblock

  • John Doe

    I have a question concerning Wallpaper and Google Now .. My Google Now has a large white space
    at the top with just the Google logo and search bar. It used to get those Google daily (whatever they are called ..)
    animations, but since upgrading to Marshmallow (i believe), it has been white!!
    I cannot uninstall the Google Now launcher (greyed out ..)
    I have googled the issue, but not found a fix yet … any ideas? I am on a Nexus 5 with the latest, ver 6.01 and
    security patches …
