    New version of switcharoo. This one pulls images from a server rather than from your phone, so as to make palm happy. (no more MediaDB!)

    This will download and import images once a day, and then switch on a schedule just like the other one. Bunch-o image categories that can be turned on or off. Tons-o images on the server.

    Check it out here

    They have to post it. Give it a bit and try again, or just wait for it to show up in the list of recent apps on the home page of precentral.

    That really blows that Palm made you do that. Doesn't kill the coolness of the app, but I'd prefer to point to a local set of images.

    The plan is once they open up that functionality, I will make the app do both.

    it would be sweet if we could define a web drectory of our own. looks great though

    maybe you could set up a site where people could upload their own images and the app pulls from there.

    Thanks

    We've talked about how cool it would be to be able to pull from picasa or flickr or something. But that is a ways off.

    Really enjoy this version, thanks for your work. I am currently using the "textures" directory and there are some great images! Would it be possible to share where you've gotten some of the images in case we would like to save them for later use? Also, do you have a price in mind for when it hits the catalog?

    Not only do they release a half ***** SDK, but now bind you to crippling your application, this leaves a very sour taste and I'm seriously considering leaving Palm all together.

    GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER PALM!!!!!

    Got many of the good ones here: iDesign * iPhone - Free iPhone Wallpapers & Free iPhone Backgrounds. Updated Daily! They continually have great wallpapers.

    The plan is $2.50, which we hope will also cover our bandwidth costs for transferring all the images.

    Well... sorta. We delete the downloaded wallpaper after it has been imported to save space, and to limit any liability for copyrighted images.

    However, you can always connect up your phone to your computer, and browse into the hidden .wallpaper folder. (in windows just add ".wallpapers" to the address bar) and copy any existing images to your computer.

    However, you will only ever see the latest batch of images downloaded.

    I hear ya, but I think I am a little more forgiving. I mean it took Apple a year to release their SDK at all and even now you can only use it on a mac.

    For a struggling little company I think they are doing remarkable. Things are not ideal, but they are continually getting better. And so far they have made choices that allow them to mostly manage growth and properly scale, while at the same time allowing an amazing amount of openness. They dont care a lick that switcharoo with the "reserved" functionality is available through homebrew.

    Mostly I am just hoping that I can get the new version accepted into the app catalog as soon as possible, and start making some cash from it! Cause then it justifies other WebOS projects.

    I don't see Switcharoo Live in the app catalog and I just downloaded and installed the demo / homebrew version today. Any idea when this will be up in the App Catalog?

    I am hoping any time. It has been in review for a while. I had to do one minor modification, and I think that is all it will need and it should go right in.

    However, that is the demo version. That haven't even started looking at the full version yet. Although it is just the same as the demo version, it just doesn't limit how many images it can get, so if I get the same reviewer, maybe it will be quick.

    Love the program, but having a problem. I dl'ed the version from the app catalog, and it worked fine for a few days, but then kept cycling through the same four or five images (I have it on the quickest wallpaper switch, but I'd like it if <feature request>you could go back to including the very short increments, e.g., 5 mins., 15 mins. I have a short attention span.</feature request>). I tried deleting the program, but the last image showed by Switcheroo remains as my wallpaper (where are those images stored?). The app catalog has been down today, so I haven't been able to reinstall, but I just wanted to let you know about this possible bug.

    I believe that's a limitation of the demo (to cycle through the same images after Nov 15th). I have my $$$ ready to pay for the full, unrestricted app and am just waiting for it's release :-)

    It is a limitation of the demo. However, you can get the latest version from the homebrew repository and it has been pushed to expire dec 1st, after which it will be limited to 10 images.

    The full version is in the review process, hoping to see it any day now!
