Another update to 500 Firepaper today. Some of you may have noticed a couple of updates to this app lately.
Two weeks ago, 500px made some unexpected changes to their API and CDN. This resulted in a lot of blurry (upscaled low-res) images to be displayed by 500 Firepaper.
Some fairly rigorous changes were needed to parts of the code to cope with this, and it had to be released quickly, so most users would still be seeing the cached high-res images when the update came in, and many would never be the wiser.
Of course, a rigorous and hasty change is not always the best technically, some bugs had to fixed, and some optimizations done. Hence the intermediate updates.
The changes at 500px required 500 Firepaper to make many more API requests to the 500px servers. These are just text-based requests and are not very significant bandwidth-wise, but they are slow (and thus increase latency of several actions, and in turn battery use). This latest update drastically reduces the amount of API requests needed, thanks to some advice from gurus over at 500px themselves.
Hopefully this is the last minor update for a while!

Could be possible to add support for the color picker feature included in Action launcher 3? Is it a 500px or 500 firepaper limitation?
Thx sir, I like this app so much!
Great App. Bought it a while ago.
I'll give this a shot. I had to freeze 500 Firepaper today because of the massive wakelocks and battery drain.
What an amazing developer. Thanks for your hard work!
Thank you chainfire.
amazing, lovely pix, good performance. Love it!
Eindelijk een Nederlander op xda die goed werk maakt groet p
Ik kwam er net achter dat jij een Nederlander bent.......

nice one CF
Hi, CF, not sure how to properly report a broken link on your cf auto root page but looks like zip file for GT-I9500 is broken
Would love to see you develop a root all auto root ala iRoot or RootGenius/Shuame. Not sure why something like this doesn't exist for SuperSU.
As usual. Kudos
ciao mi manderesti il cfroot del note 4 con 5.0.1 version germany grazie quello che ci sta ora non funziona !!!!

I love this app. Suggestion: add a way to mark wallpapers as favorite (like a bookmark) then be able to cycle thru your favorites.
Hllo to u

I want to buy pro version. But i am unable to make a purchase. +Chainfire
Is there any plans for a custom category, or is there any way to edit categories for this app?
I bought a pro version how to activatie?
I love the app functionality but recently I've noticed that it is using CPU at a constant rate of 3% when on battery power, which is draining the battery. When the device (a Note 5) is powered, there is little to no CPU utilization by the app. There should be no reason for 500 Firepaper to constantly use the CPU since all it has to do is load a new wallpaper once in a while. Also it's very odd that the CPU use quiets down when the device is powered.
