Android 2.1+ pictures can be shown as a Live Wallpaper.
Android 4.2+ pictures can also be shown as a Daydream screensaver when your Android phone or tablet is docked.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Installing this will not give you an application icon. Both of these features are enabled in the Android settings ( Settings, Display, Live Wallpaper and Settings, Display, DayDream )
As new photos are posted daily, so they will show up in the picture cycle (it downloads the images automatically). Photos change hourly by default but can be changed to cycle at custom intervals.
By default this app will only work on Wifi connections due to the amount of network data it may consume. If you wish to run it on 3G, there is a setting to enable in the daydream settings page to enable this to work over mobile data connections. The application will intelligently cache images for offline use, so if you connect to Wifi and then go onto mobile networks, cached images will be used, they will update the next time you connect to Wifi.
The free version will cycle through the last 24 Photo Of The Day pictures.
A single small in-app purchase is available to unlock all the following photo of the day archive categories:
Adventure and Exploration
Black and White
Nature and Weather
People and Culture
Science and Space

V3.05 .NoMedia file to stop cache folder appearing in gallery. Crash fix for obscure problem getting battery %
V3.04 Crashfix and SDK update to KitKat :-)
V3.0 Total rewrite of downloading and caching. Now caches images to SD Card and works when off-network. Many crash fixes, better quality JPG encoding, smarter bandwidth management (will use less network checking for images). Fixed a scaling problem in non-crop mode when display resolution > image size (now upscales as well as down).
