Finding the perfect wallpaper for your iPhone or iPad may be as simple as choosing a picture from your saved photos. But, if you are in the mood for something exotic, quirky, cartoonish, or for a certain holiday, then you might try one of these great apps.

Pimp Your Screen

This app provides some gorgeous nature and city scenes as well as sci-fi, 3-D, abstract, and sports wallpapers. When you open the app you will immediately see the newest ones that have been added. If you are looking for a certain genre, just pop open the menu to search by category or view those that are popular.

Browsing can be done with a swipe so that each wallpaper option is displayed in a full screen format. If you click on the image once, sample icons will display so that you can see how it will look when in use. To remove the sample icons, just click it again. Once you find a wallpaper you like, just click the Save button. You can click Ok to acknowledge it or use the arrow to share it with others. Saved photos are accessible in your camera roll like any other photo.

Other nice features of the app include Lock and Home Screen Makers which allow you to customize your shelves, skins, status bar, and even add text. The app also provides themes which include a lock and home screen background combination.

Pimp Your Screen is designed for iPhone and iPad with iPod touch support as well. The app is available for $1.99 on the App Store.

This app provides some very nice wallpaper options too. With categories such as automotive, games, signs and sayings, spiritual, and more, you are sure to find one that suits your style.

After picking a category to browse through, the wallpapers are displayed in a grid format. Then you just select one to see the full screen view. You can also check out details such as the file size, number of downloads, developer, and other items from that user.

Once you pick an image you like, you can save it to the Zedge album within your photo app. You can also share it to a social media site, send it via email, or indicate if you like it or not.

Aside from browsing categories, Zedge offers a keyword search in case you know exactly what you want. The app also has ringtones and notification sounds if you are willing to install Zedge’s ToneSync which works with your iTunes software.

Zedge is an ad-supported app available for free on the App Store. It is designed for both iPhone and iPad.
