Customization is one of the biggest draws of Google’s Android ecosystem. The ability to change nearly all aspects of your phone’s screens gives people a sense of identity in a sea of rounded square icons and grids. Everything from custom icons to custom weather widgets exist on Android but one of the easiest ways to customize your screen is to use unique wallpapers. Here are five Android wallpaper apps that give your screen that extra pop you’re looking for.
