No edition of MTG4Life comes with any wallpaper art or video, please respect any artist/creators/owners rights.

Step by Step Guide for Static Wallpaper Images

  1. Find the image you want in your browser, touch and hold the image to bring up a menu, then select “Download Image”. It will then be downloaded to your phone usually in the “Downloads” folder viewable in the Photos app.
  2. In MTG4Life “Lite” touch the central cog, touch the heart icon to get to the customisation features hub. Slide your finger left to show the Custom Wallpapers area and touch the “Load Static Wallpaper” button. You may have to give the app permission to access your photos. Then select the folder the image was downloaded from step 1. and select it to make it your wallpaper. The above video contains a walkthrough at timestamp 1 minute 31 seconds here.

Step by Step Guide for Live Wallpaper Videos

  1. Find the video you want in your browser. The page will usually have a separate “Download” button you will need to press to download it to your phone.
