Question What is your favorite type of wallpaper?

I've been into abstract wallpapers for so long that I don't know what else is out there even after I've peeked around. Do you have an all time favorite wallpaper that you just can't seem to replace?

Furbish (colored wallpapers) requires these permissions:
Network communication
full network access, view network connections


I'm always very suspicious when I see things like that in wallpaper. Unless it's live weather wallpaper or something, where internet access is required for it to work. I certainly don't want wallpaper that has advertisements.

I like pictures of nature, or of funky colors in an appealing pattern.

It may say it requires internet access, but it doesnít seem to do anything with it Ė I can change colors with 3G turned off, no problem. Anyway, Iíve been using it for about a year so am not concerned in this case.

Space wallpapers are the only wallpapers I will even consider any more. I love space. I use wallpapers featuring nebulae, galaxies, planets, stars, black holes, etc. And I use them on all of my devices. I use the Galaxy Pack live wallpapers on my Androids and I have a whole collection of images for my PC.

This.

My phone wallpaper will always be a nice shot of my son and my lock screen will always be of my other half.

On my tab, it's a picture of my and wee man watching a video on my tab.

I'm using the stock Wallpaper on my S3 the one with the dandelion.
Probably one of my faves is the Nexus live wallpaper.

I like cute variations on a theme. I took one of eyebeam's wallpapers of the Android girl holding a flower. My phone has the same girl in a different background. I like the idea of using a holiday theme tho. I may try that. Too bad I can't make them myself, I would put the Android girl with a hearts background!
