Pattrn provides a collection of beautiful patterns to set as wallpaper

If you're one of those that loves to change the wallpaper often but you are really into minimalism and simplicity, you should give this a go. Pattrn is an app that gives you access to wallpapers that really look like actual (physical) wall-papers. This collection has been created and shared by the COLOURlovers community.

First time you launch the app it asks you how often you would like to change your wallpaper (the app can get it done automatically). Likewise, it lets you choose which patterns you want to take (your favorites, most popular or "surprise me!").

The collection is just huge. The app, set in HOLO-ICS layout, is divided in three tabs (latest, popular and favorites). You can also browse by keyword or color, keep a list of your favorite patterns and save them in your gallery. When you tap on a pattern you can see how many people love it, views and comments. You can also comment and "love" it.

Lucas Rocha, its developer, welcome you to the social wallpaper platform. Good.

    Love this app :) Spent a few hours making a big list of favorites (and occasionally add to it when waiting, traveling, etc) and get a new wallpaper every day. A nice way to freshen your home screen without the resource usage of live wallpaper. Huge selection and easy to use! Never had an issue with the app on RAZR Maxx or HTC One M8. It would be cool if you could look at one pattern and see ot

    The patterns are wonderful but you cannot save any pictures to your phone! I was extremely dissapointed!

    The wallpapers remind me of origami paper. Simple and pretty! Spend a few minutes initially to go through and favorite some cool designs, and then be surprised every morning with a new background. UI is simple but works.

    I've tried other apps for my tablet and they didn't always fit on my ten inch screen without becoming pixelated. This app looks GREAT!!!!!!
