Bitmado is a shuffling wallpaper engine fed by the community
This is a new app concept. It takes common elements from other apps like an empowered community and social profiles. However, this is a wallpaper-based social network (say... what!?). Yes, it can sound weird but it's certainly a great original idea. Let's see how it works.
Bitmado allows users to upload wallpapers and submit them to community's plebiscite (voting). Wallpapers can obviously be upvoted or downvoted. Those wallpapers that get more votes hit the community's front page (top). Users can explore the tops or navigate through "mados" which are like hashtags (categories) of wallpapers created by users. Likewise, and here comes the most interesting point, users can follow wallpapers as they were people. This way, users can bookmark their favorite wallpapers. Followed wallpapers will shuffle automatically in users' smartphones and tablet home screen. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?
Joining bitmado community is as easy as signing up via Facebook Connect and start upvoting, downtvoting and uploading images. The more active you are in the community (voting and uploading wallpapers) the more "bumps" you'll earn. Bump promotes an image even more than an upvote. You can bump an image multiple times if you have enough bump-credit.
Bitmado is set in an intuitive and user-friendly interface, with a Holo-style layout that makes navigation way easier. The apps runs smoothly and it loads the images quite fast. The tutorial help getting the hang of it in the blink of an eye. The only catch: it should be more configurable. I couldn't find a "settings" section where managing, for example, the shuffle frequency or the order wallpapers are displayed.
Besides, a recommended app.
Bitmado, The Front Page of Mobile, is a battery-friendly “shuffling wallpaper engine” (yes, we’re coining that and rolling with it).
What does that mean? Bitmado lets you:
- Experience an endless supply of amazing wallpapers as users continuously submit new images.
- Create or follow community-powered wallpaper categories (which we call “mados”) and only receive wallpapers that interest you.
- Never worry about battery life with our effortless, instantly streaming wallpapers.
- Contribute to the bitmado community by submitting and voting on your favorite wallpapers.
- Find a wallpaper you like? "Stick it" and keep it on your phone for as long as you'd like.
- Thanks to bitmado’s patented technology, you’ll only see the very best wallpapers!
Whether you vote or not, we know you will enjoy the fruits of the community’s labor, and bitmado’s unique take on limitless shuffling wallpapers!

But here is an idea... How about when the server is down and it cannot load a wallpaper use a wallpaper instead of the bitmado symbol... Hey and maybe it can change every week or two
Though loading takes quite a while, the pictures submitted by users are good. Also whenever i click on a picture and hit the back button i end up at the beginning of the page. Fast scrolling cause the pictures already loaded to load again taking up time.
I really like this app and it's on every android I own,but some days it doesn't log me in,because of server issues.I'm not going to lower the rating because I know that you guys are working on it but please fix it soon..
Landscape! Having this functionality will make this a 5-star app.
The app keeps logging out of my account. As a result, the wallpapers dont update, or any random wallpaper comes up, not from the categories I selected. As a result, even NSFW images also were displayed. Major embarrassment !! Great app, but functional
I'm someone who changes wallpapers frequently and this app seems to attempt to solve that problem however I feel that they could simplify some things. All this bumping stuff and "mado" are confusing. This app should be dumbed down a bit. Example: step 1 p
Keep getting an error "Unable to communicate with Bitmado servers." Tried removing the app and re-installing. Now show that I'm logged in but no content. Using my Google+ login. Google+ shows that the app is authorized.
