Wallpaper APPS Question
edited May 2013 in General Discussion
I've asked this in private from a pre-existing request I had not long ago, but I'm also going to ask the members here who have made them or perfected them.
I'm testing out making lots of different type of apps. Now I'm onto trying wallpaper APPs. However I'm stuck, because all Android phones have different ratios, and I know to make the screenshots fit across all 3 screens on the android you need to grab the mobile screen width and height and x the width by 1 and times the height by 2.
For example, my mums samsung has a 240x320 screen, which means I need a 480x320 screenshot to fit her mobile. Now in my APP I could display buttons based on the main mobile screen sizes so that users get the right screenshot, but it would be too many to try and have one for all the different types.
So I'm asking what are the main resolutions I'm looking at to cover most mobile screens? Or is there only a select few sizes?
Would be nice to hear some input from someone who has played around with this
But until then, here are my 2 cents - I've seen a lot of popular wallpaper apps, which are made only for Samsung Galaxy S2 / S3 / Note / Note 2 and some other popular phones. Maybe you could do a "niche" wallpaper app.
