"Meet the community's taste for wallpapers"

Reviewed by / Aug 14, 2013

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.

    I tried with both Google+ & Facebook. I accepted all the intrusive requests but it failed. I tried to upload gifs but it wouldn't let me. The ones I did upload didn't show. Now you have my wifi info, name, phone number, my contacts on my phone, G+ & Facebook amongst other info and I can't even open an account. I have 4g lte & wifi.
