There's using a single image (which never changes) and then there's using random image providers like Bing (which is, well, random). I personally thought setting random personal photos/wallpaper was something missing from the base OS functionality, so I decided to develop it myself. Feel free to provide any suggestions or feedback for this app! If you feel like a feature is missing, let me know and we can see about getting it coded up.
Note that I've already submitted an update (not posted yet), and it will include new features such as:
- Image cropping
- Add an entire album at once
- More hourly frequency settings (every 1, 2, 6, 12 hours)
- Multi-selection of items (for deletion)
Here's the deep link: Paper Shuffle | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
Here's a imgur blog-ish-thing to show some screenshots and the usage (though it's pretty self-explanatory): Paper Shuffle v1.0 - Imgur
Thanks for reading! :)

I did the try option and did not see how to add an entire album at once. It also seemed to have a problem with landscape files or files that it said were too large and needed to be edited before use. IMO, the app should self-center-crop landscape images or allow you to set the viewable area individually once they are added and also downsample images that it deems too large.
If it hassles me about each picture I try to choose, it will quickly get uninstalled.
I love the concept, but it needs a bit of work on these items for me to use it.
I hope the feedback helps. Looking forward to updates.

That saves me from having to keep my camera roll nice and tidy from taking multiple shots trying to get that perfect one...also, the Photos Hub uses Favorites to cycle the picture on the live tile, so it is the best option, IMO ;) I hope you can figure that option out ;)

This is pretty great so far! Can't wait for the update, mainly for the cropping feature.
I'm really excited about the app link to the lock screen. I think some devs can do really great things with the feature.

I happily purchased your app and while it worked great for a while, it seem to no longer be shuffling my wall papers. The live tile says the last change was over 2 hours ago but I think that was when I did it manually since I noticed it hasn't changed. Any tips or debug info I can get?
