You might have gone through a lot of websites, searches and applications in order to find the right wallpaper for your phone. But, what if you can create your own customized one? And you don’t need photo editing or graphic designing skills for that. These five apps will provide you with a unique wallpaper based on your choice of colors, images etc.
Tapet – Infinite Wallpapers (Android)
Tapet is a custom wallpaper app that generates patterns for images. The patterns can be of lines, squares, circles, polygons etc, that result in a much beautiful abstract image. And as in it’s name, it has an nearly infinite set of combinations.
“You can set the app to surprise you with a new wallpaper hourly or daily. You will most likely never see the same wallpaper twice.”
It even gives you a material design style with a color picker that can help you to choose the color tone of the image. The most beautiful things is that it does not require internet connection. Every image is generated based on an algorithm. All the functions in the app are based on swipe gestures.
Deko is a Tapet-alternative for devices running iOS. It simply is a clone to the former app. You can create patterns, save them to your gallery, export to other apps, set as wallpaper, or share it with friends.
The app has some patterns that are not found in Tapet, such as the large overlapping circles that can create a mixture of colors on the screen.
Blur transforms your pictures in to a blurred image perfect for setting as a wallpaper. It also has different types of patterns according to which the blur effect is applied. The app provides you with three simple steps: Crop the image (like a mobile wallpaper), apply the blur effect on the image and finally switch colors according to your desire.
There is a free version and a paid version of the app. The app is primarily for android phones, but there is a good alternative for iOS with the same name.
Mixt completely relies on gradients for wallpapers. It allows the user to select two or three colors to set as gradient. Additional options include the direction of gradient, adding polka dots pattern etc.
It is quite a minimalistic app that delivers some decent functionality. Also it does not occupy much space on your device.

Ever heard of Low Poly art (Wiki)? It’s basically an image where in all the shapes are drawn using multiple polygonal structures. Once you select an image, your have two options to go through; either you allow to app itself to convert it into a low poly image or you do it manually using the features in the app.
The editor mode allows you to select the points in the image to draw the polygons. And you can use the app with images of any size, rather than limiting to mobile size wallpapers.
Now, you just need to spend some time to create your own customized wallpaper. Trust me, it saves you a lot of time by not searching for wallpapers created by someone else.
