*** Warning: this is a Widget, not a regular application and cannot be started as such - please read explanation at the end if in doubt.

Theme designers: make your screen designs dynamic! Add and arrange MC-Photo widgets, assign actions to them, set captions, set photo filters to blend photos into your theme look and feel, configure photo source for each widget to reflect it's purpose and select change interval. You can have fully functional theme that never looks the same but is always beautiful and understandable!

Photos can be displayed as:
■ Classic - one photo in a frame
■ Collage - several photos arranged in a collage

Photos can be selected by:
■ 500px categories
■ 500px user, user following, user favorites
■ 500px author name
■ Tags (500px)
■ Current weather at your location (500px)
■ Color (500px)
■ Flickr (latest interesting photos)
■ DeviantART
■ WikiArt
■ Panoramio (around you)
■ Instagram (popular or around you)
■ Local albums

Photos can be changed at a user selected interval.

Use Actions to start chosen application when you tap the widget. (Tap in the vertical middle to show Widget Options)

Use Caption to describe widget contents or selected action.

Use colored frames and photo filters to blend photos into you current home screen look and feel.

You can also save and load complete widget settings (bear in mind those are just internal settings, widget size and position is managed by launcher application).

Widget is not a regular android application and cannot be found in Application Drawer with other applications. Depending on your Launcher and Android version there are usually two options to add widget to a home screen:
1) App drawer -> Widgets Tab -> MC-Photo Widget AxB -> Drag it to home screen -> Configure options
2) Long click on home screen -> Widgets -> MC-Photo Widget AxB -> Configure options

If your launcher doesn't support widget re-sizing select one of the sizes (AxB cells in home screen grid) for best fit to your design.

Some new versions can invalidate your current widgets. We will keep such changes at minimum but when it happens you may need to remove and add widgets again.

    Good app, OK customization. Would like to see transition effects and a 5 second refresh option. Refresh options start at one minute and go up from there
