    I recommend this one, it's great! [+]LockScreen | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    [+]LockScreen

    It's a free version to, but I really recommend buying it. It has some nice features, like visualizing the lock screen clock, date and notification while you look through the backgrounds. :)

    I've been using the Bing lockscreen. It updates every day with a different picture. Some are a little interesting, but it keeps it fresh every day.

    I had been using +Lockscreen too and really liked it but Amazing Weather updated their app so now I use it because it gives me weather and their weather pics. Changes between night and day too.

    I use Bing.

    Flickr supports lockscreen wallpaper.
    Or install Baconit (Reddit client) and choose earthporn subreddit for lockscreen wallpaper.

    Thanks. Bookmarked

    What is papershuffles shortest interval for changing the lock screen? does it have like a 5 minute option? 15 minutes? I get bored easily and can't keep my hands off my phone. I would like to see a random picture ever so often.

    Also downloaded your skydrive folder to add to my collection ;)

    The shortest is 20 - 30 minutes, but I found 1 hour to work much better. Somehow, when I had 20 pictures that was supposed to change, it didn't work. Now I have 10 set to 1 hour, and it works like a charm. Might work with more, I really didn't check it out that good.

    Nice, hope you get to use them :) I will add more now and then.
