If you’re looking for a way to create unique wallpapers for your iPhone, you need look no further than Meritum Paint. The app is free in iTunes (or 99 cents for an upgraded version), and is one of the coolest ways to create wallpapers. Tap or drag your finger around the screen until you have a design you love and then shake your phone to save it. That’s all there is to it!

Send your creations to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr directly from your app, or email them to a friend. Fingerpaint to your heart’s content and save whatever you love. Quickly get rid of the pictures that aren’t quite up to snuff with the tap of a finger on the screen.

It’s simple, it’s addictive and it’s creative. What more could you ask for?

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.
