    Just curious as to what percentage of users on here use the app "Backgrounds" on the marketplace.

    Most people use it, or do they just make their own backgrounds?

    I use Backgrounds. I switch whenever the mood strikes me. Right now it's winter on my background. :)

    I have a lot of different BG apps, the one you listed, google's, ubuntu, and Zedge. Different types depending on your style. I prefer Zedge as the interface is easy to navigate and there a tons to choose from.

    I had never heard of it so I guess that means I don't use it. :) Sounds interesting. May check it out. Right now my background is a picture of Bora Bora (while picture outside window has over 40 inches of snow on the ground over the last week).

    Backgrounds looks like it was populated by 14 year old girls with a copy of Photoshop elements. 90% of it's content consists of bad clip art with an inspirational quote glowing over it in neon pink script.

    I use the Androlib Wallpaper app. While I had Backgrounds, I lost it during a reset and I haven't bothered to reinstall it.

    I use backgrounds all the time. I am constantly changing because it's so easy to use and the backgrounds are vibrant.

    yourhero88 - what are you talking about? Half of the backgrounds are just images of planets/landscape/etc etc....MUCH more to it than the ones you are talking about.

    I have Backgrounds but I rarely use it anymore. It probably does have the best selection I've seen if you're willing to browse through it.

    I really like the TerraTime app. It has a number of functions, but I really like their background. It shows a flat map of the world and updates to show what parts are night and day. You have the option of viewing real time cloud cover as well.

    I've done both. I had a nice beach background but right now I have a space nebula one I cropped to 960x864, emailed to myself, previewed in the camera, menu key, set as, background, adjusted the orange box and was done. I searched Googles images to find it.

    I use Backgrounds, and also used it when I had an iTouch. The only bummer with Droid-sized images is that it auto-crops some oddly and some pics don't have enough resolution to handle the area of 3(+) screens. But I like all of the non-high-school images.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I thought something like this would be a good app.

    I don't use an app but I have very specific ideas of what I want as wallpapers that don't seem to be offered by the apps I've tried.
