App Search, flickr background

    I looked at over 3 dozen apps on google play and ran some searches...

    I'm looking for an app that will set the droid wallpaper to a random image from a single (or set of) flickr groups.

    To view Flickr groups on the site, you have to log in. But there is a way to access them without logging in... I don't know how that works.

    Some cool groups....
    Flickr: WorldWide Wild Wilderness!!
    Flickr: I love my cat
    Flickr: Sunsets & Sunrises around the world (121 Countries!)

    The best flickr groups keep their photos clean (no family photos - just the subject shot!)

    Anyway, not looking for 'tags' or 'pick specific photos' ... just want it to pull from these groups.

    Also, the time interval should be adjustable (1 hour, 1week, whatever)

    For the PC I use this amazing freeware John

    The thing with accessing Fllickr,Twitter,Facebook etc depend if their API are free or not. For Flickr refer to Flickr Services it was mentioned explicitly for commercial use it can charge a fee.

    For some developers they then resort to web-page scraping but I think this is not really ethical although I do see a lot of apps doing it secretly.

    Its really really cool having a new beautiful background on the PC every hour or so. I'm surprised this feature is not in the official flickr app!
