Dress your new BlackBerry Z10 with Pattern and Color Wallpapers

By Richard Devine on 23 Feb 2013 11:27 am EST

Wallpapers are everywhere -- CrackBerry has offered a great selection over the years -- but you can never have too much choice. You spend your hard earned money on a shiny new BlackBerry Z10, the least you want is to dress it up all nice, right? Pattern and Color Wallpapers brings some of my personal favorites used on other platforms to BlackBerry 10.

It makes use of the API, and is open-sourced to boot. What you get is an extensive, and extremely high quality selection of wallpapers to choose from. Selecting them as your wallpaper is as simple as tapping a single button on the screen, and the app takes care of the rest. Anyone familiar with the COLOURlovers selection will already know where I'm coming from, but if you're into patterned wallpaper as opposed to actual images, then you'll find something in here that takes your fancy. It's free to download, and is available as we speak in BlackBerry World.

Dress your new BlackBerry Z10 with Pattern and Color Wallpapers


What about upgrading your wallpaper-maker with the resolution of the Z10? I ask for it several times... It was the most easiest way for me to add on all my Bold99xx wallpapers in my thread... I would like to continue in the same way with Z10 walls...

My new Z10? Still waiting. And it is driving me nuts. My contract is up now. I have five lines in my account, all of which will be getting a Z10. But still no word about U.S. carrier dates.

I'm hoping the enthusiasm is remaining high in the rest of the world because I'm concerned Blackberry has lost the January 30 energy. Meanwhile Samsung readies an oxygen sucking announcement of the GS IV, T-Mobile gets the iPhone (maybe), HTC announces a very fast (and Z10-looking) model. I'm expecting in each case the announcement to release delta will be smaller. There will be so much competition for consumer attention.

Why are the U.S. carriers are stalling the release? Why wasn't their testing and bloatware addition done before January 30?

My hope is there is a big advertising push to perk interest. Is that happening elsewhere? Please help me shake this sadness.

Sorry for hijacking this post.

Count your blessings. There are still a few bugs in the Z10. The U.S. Will benefit from the fact that everywhere else has been a test bed for this device.

I use photographs as wallpaper on my OS5 Bold. (yes, I'm waiting here in the US for the Z10...) Does anyone know if this option is available on the Z10? It's from an app called Wallpaper Shifter'.
