Separate Wallpaper Changers For Lock Screen and App Screens

    OK Folks, this is my last hope. I've been scouring Forums, Google Playstore, Online Articles and more for days trying to figure this out and I keep coming up with nada...so hopefully somebody here can help me. Here's what I'm looking for:

    I currently use Wallpaper Changer to automatically change my app screen Wallpapers every so often. I also would like to do the same thing for my Lock Screen - only using a different album of images. In other words, I want one album of Wallpapers to change at a preset time (say every hour) on my app screens, and at the same time, I would like a different album of Wallpaper to rotate on my Lock Screen. Wallpaper Changer works great on my app screens, but not on my Lock Screen. While it is possible to customize the Lock Screen Wallpaper -- but you have to do it manually anytime you want it changed.

    Does anybody know of any one app...or combination of apps....that can accomplish what I want to do?

    As always, mucho appreciado in advance for any and all replies!

    Nova Launcher lets you assign separate wallpapers for each but it's not free.

    But OP needs a wallpaper changer that works independently on the lock screen. I use ADW, but have tried Nova, and that's not an option I recall seeing in its settings.

    Nova has not a gester to change that rapidly either. :) I am pretty sure there is not one at all.

    If I'm not mistaken he's referring to a plugin for Nova called WidgetLocker. It was discontinued and no longer on the play store. I purchased it when it was a thing and used it for about a week.

    Anyway, if you want to see it, here it is from the official site (last update 2012):

    So you're both right, the option is not there.

    Thanks for the link. It looked like a nice little app; I wonder why they abandoned it.

    Oh, I got a kick out of its usage of "Google Android Market"--I had forgotten it wasn't always called "Play Store" or "Google Play."

    A quick glance around its site didn't reveal anything about automatically rotating wallpapers on the lock screen. Did I miss it?

    Not sure. Could've been due to all the changes in android's code base made it difficult to update for newer android versions and ultimately not worth it.

    Totally forgot myself. There was even the old shopping bag icon for the play store. Relics from the past, eh.

    It could've been in the settings though I don't remember. Last time I used it was about 8 years ago.

    I wonder if the OP tried the app you and lvt posted. Seems like that one would do it.

    I also sometimes call it android market, since my Samsung Galaxy S3 had it in :)
