    What I would like: Refresh my wallpaper to "some webcam nearby", refreshed every <n> minutes. I would like my background to depend on my current location. Compare the "maps" live wallpaper, which shows me a satellite view of wherever I am.

    Thanks for the idea, I will see what can be done in some of the next releases.

    Currently you can achieve similar functionality by searching for webcams near current location, choose one (or more) you like and set them as your wallpaper.

    I know this is not the same, but it is maybe better - you don't have to always like the image from the nearest webcam.

    Tell me what you think?

    This might actually drag me away from my live wallpaper background. I sit in a cubicle with no view to outside all day so this is great! A real reminder that there is a world out there beyond my four gray walls. Thanks!
