    App for cycling/changing wallpaper?

    I have been looking for an app that will allow me to have the wallpaper/desktop picture cycle through a group of pictures like it is set up on my desktop Mac. If there are some options available I haven't found them. I like the picture that shows on the desktop but would like it to change every 15 or 30 or so seconds.

    I'm sorry to see there's been no reply to this. I'll supply my own pictures with the iPad's excellent camera. I just want an app to change the backgrounds periodically.

    The only way to do anything like this it to use the photo frame feature, but that will cycle through all of your pictures, rather than a subset of them, and then only on your lock screen.

    I'm not aware of any apps that will do what you require.

    Thanks, Kevin. It's hard to believe since I've had that capability in both Linux and Windows desktops.

    I'm a new iPad owner and still getting used to doing things Apple's way.

    It takes some getting used to. Maybe there is such a capability if you jailbreak, I don't know.

    Just to be clear, do you want to cycle through pictures on your home screen? If so, I think it unlikely that there would be such an app as it would involve manipulation of the OS, which Apple does not allow.

    Yes, Kevin. I'm most familiar with Linux where everyone manipulates everything.
