Convert your 3D photos to 3D wallpaper on the HTC EVO 3D/V

Last week, we told you about an application for the HTC EVO 3D and the non-Sprint version of that phone called the HTC EVO V 4G that would place your phone into 3D mode when you wanted it. This allowed you to utilize 3D wallpapers, but selecting a 3D wallpaper was a pain involving multiple steps and programs. HJ200 has created an app called simply 3D Wallpaper Picker, which is a painless 3D wallpaper selection application to remedy this problem.

The application takes your 3D photographs and converts them to a 2D interlaced 3D image that displays properly as your wallpaper while in 3D mode.

3D Wallpaper Picker lists support for MPO, JPS, JPG, PNG and other formats.

While you do not need to be rooted to run the 3D Wallpaper Picker, you are going to need to be rooted to run JMZ’s application to force the phone into 3D mode. Or you’re going to need to find another way to enable 3D all the time.

I’ve managed to crash the phone and leave it in 3D mode by using 3D games, but that was back in the Gingerbread days, and I haven’t seen that particular 3D bug pop back up yet. If you have any tricks on how to force 3D mode without root, drop a comment, as it shouldn’t necessarily take root access to do this.

It seems rather amazing that it’s taken one year and three months after the release of the phone for there to finally be an application that does what the Sprint commercials for the phone basically showed it would do (3D desktops). Seriously, this seems like something HTC should have shipped with the OS.

The application is available for free at Google Play, and support can be located in the development thread.

      This application doesn’t, however it does look a bit weird when you’re in 3d mode.

      On the convert application? It only runs when you convert a wallpaper.

      If you’re asking about 3D mode, it’s the exact same drain as having your screen on bright when the screen is on

    Are you sure that the screen does not drain more battery when the 3D is on?
    It might just be my imagination, but it seems like it might use a bit more?

      Well, you can check it out easily enough – get battery monitor widget, set the screen off time to never, put it on a desk and leave it with BMW visible for 5 minutes or so… take a look at the drain.

      Now turn on the 3d, repeat.

      Pretty sure the 3D screen does nothing particularly special, it’s the 3D apps that all are hogs..

      But I left my 3D at the house today, so can’t run the tests

    Can you guys release a new root and unlock guide for the Sprint HTC Evo 3D? I am tired of not being able to delete the bloatware. I used to be able to when the phone was still on Gingerbread, but ICS got rid of that feature. :(
