Users also get the opt to choose a particular category, from which their home screen wallpapers will be automatically updated by the app every single day.

The app allows users to pick new wallpapers based on their own stored photos, or ones found on Google+, Google Earth and more sources. If you pick a favorite category from the app, you can choose to have a new wallpaper image placed on your smartphone every day. You can choose wallpapers from a variety of sections like Earth, Landscapes, Cityscapes, Textures, and Life. Interestingly, the app even allows you to access other wallpaper apps on your device, as well as the gallery to choose an image as your next wallpaper.
