Apologies for the app not working for a few weeks. We have been working together with 500px to attempt to solve the issue.
Please read the release notes here:
- New API keys
- Grand algorithm reworking:
--- API call rate limiting
--- Daily quotas
--- Cache period extension
--- Display order randomization
- Fixed bug where images would auto-change for a few seconds

500 Firepaper provides a live wallpaper and a daydream showing you the latest images from 500px throughout the day.

You never need to look at that boring old wallpaper again, or search for hours for a nice new one. This app will show you quality photographs from all over the world - different ones each day!

The feature (popular, editor's choice, fresh, etc) and categories displayed are of course configurable, as is the refresh interval and the brightness of the images.

Please note that high resolution imagery and animation takes quite a bit of memory, so obviously this app is aimed at high-end devices.

If you are a Muzei user, 500 Firepaper also presents itself as an art source to Muzei.


What does buying Pro get me?
I've already made all the features available to you for free. Supporting my developments is optional, but certainly appreciated.

Why is there no save feature ?
Not allowed per 500px API terms.

Three finger tap to go to the next image doesn't seem to work, what now ?
On some devices (like the HTC One) you need to put down your fingers one-by-one.

Why can't I pause indefinitely or show an image for longer than a day ?
Per 500px API terms the app cannot keep an image around for longer than 24 hours - unless you purchase Pro.

Why does this use so much RAM ?
High-resolution imagery takes a lot of memory in uncompressed form, and multiple buffers are required. But fear not, should your device need the memory while the wallpaper/daydream is not visible, the memory occupied by the app will automagically be released and repurposed.

Can the cached images be put somewhere else, like on my sd card ?
No, they cannot.

Do you want a balloon ?
No, but thanks for asking.


This application is completely dependent on the availability of 500px and its APIs. 500px can remove the APIs or revoke this application's API keys at any time. This will cause the application to stop working.

Due to 500px's API usage conditions, the application cannot cache images for longer than 24 hours. As such, if you are not connected to Wi-Fi while either charging or having a near-full battery for more than a day, the application will run out of images to display.

This application uses the 500px(tm) API and is not endorsed or certified by 500px or 500px Inc. All 500px Trademarks displayed on this application are property of 500px Inc.
