PaperSplash 1.12.1


PaperSplash 1.12.1 releases tomorrow (January 19), and adds tons of new features, as well as many more under the hood improvements and fixes. The most notable features are the new preview window and the new search view.

You might have noticed that progress on PaperSplash has slowed down recently. This is because my focus right now is on the upcoming Periodic Table releasing sometime in February. Worry not there will be both more updates and exclusive wallpapers coming again after the release of the Periodic Table app.

Homepage Redesign

As J.Lindemann turns to the next chapter with the soon to be released ‘Periodic Table’ app, our homepage does too!

This new design tries to achieve an intuitive user experience, that reflects the experience of our apps. Every important action is less than three clicks away.

Moving forward, all of J.Lindemanns products will use the same design guidelines for a more seamless experience. This means that the new homepage design reflects the current design guidelines, which means that the colors, margins, corners and others are the same as the apps.

You might notice that some pages that were available pre-redesign are not available. Worry not, this is because they are still being worked on and will be made available shortly, sometime during this month.


PaperSplash 1.10 Build 113

Hello! With PaperSplash 1.10 Build 113, released both for the ‘STANDARD’ and ‘PRO’ version. The issue with the ‘Featured’ section of the app has been resolved and wallpapers will now load as usual again. This issue was caused by me still using a deprecated part of the Unsplash API, which recently got removed, causing errors in both versions of PaperSplash.

The images you will see after updating differs from those shown before. Now you will see the highlight of the many different curated collections made by the team at Unsplash, which will refresh from time to time instead of being the same as they were before.

There has been a lack of new wallpapers in the PRO version as of recently, which was caused by me having to focus on school. But starting next week, you will start to see new wallpapers every week again!

A new feature update will come in November. If there is a new feature you want, be sure to let us know as soon as possibe so we can consider implementing it.


PaperSplash 1.10


Today is a huge day for PaperSplash! I have just started to roll out two of the most requested features, which is themes and portrait preview. There are also some optimizations that will greatly improve your experience with PaperSplash and other quality of life improvements.


Since I launched PaperSplash you have always told me that you wanted to see exclusive wallpapers and custom themes, especially a dark theme. We now have both!

At launch PaperSplash (Standard) will feature a colorful, light and dark theme. PaperSplash (PRO) will feature a colorful, light, dark, cappuccino, gunmetal, slate grey, dark slate grey and more themes coming in the near future.

Portrait preview layout

With PaperSplash 1.10 you will be able to preview wallpapers before downloading them. You will still only be able to edit them once you have downloaded them. But, there will be some interesting updates to the preview layout coming in the near future.

New PRO Wallpapers

This update brings 10 new exclusive wallpapers for you to use! Let me know what you think of them!


Some of you might have experienced that the preview window won’t open when clicking on a wallpaper. This should now be mostly fixed. If you still encounter it please contact us.

There is now a fade out animation when leaving the preview window. This will make it look more smooth instead of the “jumping” animation it has now.

I have made some changes to clickable areas in PaperSplash to make them easier to click.


PaperSplash Update Schedule


I believe that updates should enhance the software by adding new features, but just those that are needed. As I have done in the past, I listen to the community about what they want to see in the next version of PaperSplash and some get added, whilst some don’t.

PaperSplash Update Schedule (Monthly):

From this point on, I will update PaperSplash (Standard) and PaperSplash (PRO) at the same dates. The PRO version will have access to all new features in a beta program whilst the standard version will only have some of them.

As stated in the schedule there will be one update every month. The content of every months update may very. One month I might release a new feature whilst another month might only be focused on improvements.

There will probably be more updates every months that fixes crashes and bugs that might occur.

I will guarantee new wallpapers three times a month, but hopefully I will be able to release more. My goal of this year is to over 500 exclusive wallpaper available in the PRO version of PaperSplash. I have also planned some new free exclusive wallpapers for the standard edition.

PaperSplash will continue to be supported on Android 6.0+ devices for at least one or two years more. It’s a hard decision to pull the plug on some users, but it is necessary for the app to grow and for new features to flourish.

Thanks for reading, Jonatan Lindemann
