  • Photo Wall – This is something I love the most of all the wallpapers. This wallpaper can be termed somewhat to be inspired from Windows 8 Tiles features. Sometimes it does happen that we want a slide of pictures which we would like to see on our screen rotating. This is the live wallpaper you will need. By default it will be showing the wallpapers it came with. You can change it to photo you want. You can also choose the layout and sliding speed.

  • Stock Wall – I personally have no use for this. But then if you are someone who always have an eye on the stock market, this one is probably made for you. You can change the color pastels and also do some stock wall settings in which you can add your quotes by typing and searching them and choose a auto refresh time.

This means that if you are having a bright sunny day, the windmill will be working in bright sunny day also and in other condition it will also change. IN the settinsg options you can choose for a time to auto refresh and get new weather conditions. By default it is 6 hours.

  1. Hi Ashutosh, Following wallpaper tools are also a must download as it gives a variability to your device lookup..
    1) Landscape( play.google.com/store/search?q=landscape)
    2)Wallpaper changer :( play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.j4velin.wallpaperChanger)

    The former is usefull for scrolable landscape wallpaper and later for continous wallpaper change after a set time…

    I have been using this for quite some time..

  2. Hi.. Ashutosh.. I have purchased Samsung galaxy grand 1 month back and I have updated it with latest 4.2.2 Jelly bean version. After updating I can’t use the option double tap to top in contacts menu and I cant use direct call option.. Please let me know hoe to get back all those options and help me… Thanks and regards in Advance

    • Some of the options are not available in the new version. Also just to make sure that 4.2.2 version is working fine on your system, i would ask you to do a factory reset, this will remove all cache and other things and clean the memory. Take backup, do a factory reset and then restore the backup.
