Each series of Tapet Wallpaper has its own algorithm. The developers originally designed「Mekong」series by drawing some lines with random width and angle, then began to explore the results under different parameters. At last, they chose the fun and beautiful results as a series of wallpaper. Tapet can also generate infinite possibilities with colors and elements according to the algorithm.

A Birthday Gift To His Wife
Adrian always wanted to make his own app for a very long time. But for some reasons, he couldn't make it. To help him finish the wish, his wife demanded an app as a birthday gift of the year.
So Adrian started a temporary project to find inspiration and learn Andriod program. At first, Adrian created a very simple app to set random wallpapers for mobile phone.
Later he learned that most wallpaper apps are similar - to provide users with a ready Wallpaper Library. Then he decided to do something different and started real app development.
Adrian finally made it a birthday present to his wife. And now he adds some advanced features to make money as the second present to his wife. Let's hope his wife will be satisfied until next birthday.
