    Multipicture live wall paper is the coolest wallpaper I have used to date. It allows you to set a different wallpaper for each screen! I have been looking for something like this since last November.

    Click the thanks button if you enjoy the wallpaper!

    awesome!! Do you have to get new wallpapers in new sizes if your only using it for one screen?

    or will it just center it and thats it?

    This is really cool although all the time I've spent resizing pics to fit the incredible do not fit properly in this app. I sent an email to the developer, we'll see what they say.

    Interesting, subscribed to this thread, hoping the developer fixes the resizing issue for the incredible.

    I think i LOVE the idea of this app. So much that it might be worth the drunk time spent resizing the 7 pics id like to use

    For me, this will be a ghetto version of Scenes (which i dont use)

    I can have one screen for work suff, one screen for personal stuff, one screen for messaging stuff, one for sexeh-time bookmarks, etc.

    I've already resized my pics, using the 3d flip between home pages looks really cool. This is my favorite home screen anything by FAR! I already have a default size I use in photoshop so it's really easy for me to resize things. My home screen I have a steelers helmet on the right and ohio state helmet on the left. If you slide right you get more ohio state stuff, if you slide left you get more steelers stuff. Really great wallpaper. I just hope it doesn't drain the battery it being a live wallpaper.

    How does resizing the pics look? They seem kind of blurry for me when I do not resize...I am glad you guys like it! I love it, the possibilities are endless! I have been waiting for a way to get people to notice some awesome apps and I finally beat people to the punch!

    Let you know tomorrow.

    As far as resolution, it all depends on the original res of the file in question. Higher the better of course. Being able to find a pic for such a small screen should never be a problem. They really shouldn't be pixelated at all.

    I would imagine the iphone wallpapers would work perfect, wouldnt they?

    I dont know dimensions offhand, but aren't they very close to our single screen?

    If so, there are obviously tonssssss of them floating around the net

    I think you misunderstood what I am wanting. I want the dimensions on a single Dinc screen....the pixel dimensions. I know they are similar to iPhone screen size and such...but I wanna be EXACT!

    All my pictures are WAY high resolution anyways...but I need to crop them to fit the Dinc screen size proportions.

    Anyone Know?

    **UPDATE**
    Tell me if this calculation sounds right? The full 7 screen Dinc is 960 x 800 (this has been known and written about for a while now). So....if I just divide the horizontal length (960) by 7 (total # of screens).....I should get the dimension of a single Dinc screen. So a single Dinc screen is 137 x 800???????

    It is 480x800

    And no that math is not correct. Because it doesnt slide a full 480pixels when you swipe to a new screen, it just goes a tiny bit. The icons move a lot further than the background appears to move ....

    Edit, here

    So far it really doesn't seem to be effecting battery much at all. Don't have solid numbers, but if I keep a live wallpaper on my phone it must not be to bad. I love live wallpapers but never use them in fear of battery drain.

    So, I cut this picture up into 7 pieces. The proportions should fit the 7 Dinc screens exactly. Just put each cut piece into the corresponding screen. I had to crop just a tiny bit to fit proportions right...but it looks good.

    1.jpg--->1st screen
    2.jpg--->2nd screen
    etc

    Original Picture:
    http://www.digitalblasphemy.com/graphics/mmsample/thetismoon2k723x.jpg

    Thought I would share. It looks really good on the phone. The screen transitioning is seamless....just looks like one continuous image.

    Edit: and of course all credit to Digital Blasphemy...I used their free Multi-Monitor Wallpaper sample photo.

    Anytime.

    I am also curious what others have done with their Multi Screen Wallpaper layouts using this app. Some people spoke about what they might do...but I wanna see pictures.

    Anyone else cut up a picture to spread across multiple screens....I wanna see it :)

    when you hit home button twice to zoom out, does it show the little images of the new wallpapers? or is it transparent like it is now?

    I'm curious as to how you figured out where to divide the picture up in the seven parts so that it looks like one when you scroll. Can you give a quick tutorial or can I send you a picture to do for me? :D
