iPad Wallpaper Tricks

Everywhere I look there are write-ups, reviews and reports about the iPad. I know – I’m guilty of writing about the device, as well. Let’s face it: this is hot news! However, I do know that there are many people out there who don’t want an iPad, and don’t plan to ever buy one. I’m willing to bet that right about now they’d love to play a dirty little trick on their iPad-owning friends.

Gizmodo has posted several different wallpaper tricks you can play on your friends. A few of them really are cruel, and will likely send the device owner into a frenzy (complete with foam coming out of their mouth).

Notice anything strange going on here? It may take your friend a few minutes to realize they can suddenly open Hulu and use Flash on their iPad. Let’s not forget they also apparently are now on the Verizon network.

You could always play around with the iPad to install this fun wallpaper. As soon as it’s live on the screen, clear your throat and say a loud “OOPS! My bad.” Hand them back the device and watch as they transform into something that looks as though it should be in the next Freddie movie.

You can have a lot of fun at their expense. They might even forgive you for it and find it humorous after a few moments. Just uh… don’t put any of these on my iPad, mkay?

How to Create Free Form Wallpaper on Your iPhone and iPad

One of the questions people ask me over and over is: “What wallpaper are you using?” I tend to change it up quite often, so the answer is always changing. Everyone wants cool desktop graphics. It’s hard to find something truly unique though. You don’t want to use the same thing everyone else is, do you? I didn’t think so! This is why I think Granimator is so awesome.

Granimator is a sound-based wallpaper creator. Tap the shapes to play sounds, and pinch a shape to change the pitch. This free-form experience allows you to become the artist. Create something no one else will have on the face of the Earth… unless you choose to share what you’ve come up with via Flickr, Twitter or the Granimator website.

Get started by choosing the styles, shapes and backgrounds you are interested in. Change things up by touching and dragging each asset around the screen. This creates your free-form design. The app is available on iTunes right now as a free download. Don’t panic if you don’t have an iPad yet, though: you can still play around with the different wallpaper packs right on the site!

If you grab Granimator for yourself, make sure you show off your masterpieces to the community.
