Re: Wallpaper size limit? How do I...

Sounds like a cool idea, if it is possible I think you would need a 14 page setup and every page would need at least 1 item. none of them should be blank/empty

About the Sunday thing I've seen that before quite a few times, mostly in calendar apps and I always thought it was weird.
