While the name could use a little streamlining, the app itself is pretty perfect. One of the best free wallpaper apps for Android around, this app knows what we need. Well it certainly knows what I need, that is. I really hate (hate is a light word), despise watermarks on my wallpapers.

I don’t care who made it as long as it has no watermark on it. The images on this free wallpaper app are completely clean. There are more than 6000 wallpapers on the app too which are thankfully handpicked by the team.

But that’s not all though, every image comes with all the necessary details. The images also link back to their original source if you want to see who made it. As a lowly digital artist, I can certainly appreciate this.

One thing which makes this app stand apart is the resolution which is displayed right on the bottom of the image. This makes it easier to select the wallpaper you actually need. Another amazing thing is that you can show wallpapers of a certain resolution. This advanced sorting allows you to only see ultra-high resolution images and set them on your Android device.

ZEDGE is one of the most versatile customization apps around. It will definitely be popping up in future lists as well. The interface is great, the app is fast and responsive and the images are of great quality.

The only reason this app is at the end of the list is that it is not a dedicated wallpaper app. Otherwise it can give a run for money to any of the other apps on the list. If you are looking for a definitive app to satiate your customization needs, get this one.
