    How to Set Funny Wallpapers

    Before you go looking for some funny wallpapers, you’ll need to know how to set them as wallpapers on your device. Now, if you have an iPod touch 2G, 3G or 4G, you should have updated to iOS4. This is the operating system that allows multitasking and two different wallpaper screens. If you haven’t updated yet, plug your device into iTunes. It will check for updates and prompt you to allow iTunes to download and install the new operating system.

    When you download a wallpaper, your iPod touch saves it to the “Camera Roll” of your photo section. So under the “Photos” app, you’ll notice the photo album you synced with your computer and the ones you downloaded from the internet or an app. Select the latter album.

    Tap a picture you want to set as your screen. The iPod will let you resize or drag the picture with your fingertips to get it the right size. Once you click “select,” you’ll be given a couple of options. The first is to “set as home screen.” This will set the wallpaper in the background behind your app icons. The second is “set as lock screen.” This will set the wallpaper in the background for when you turn your device on but don’t have it logged in.

    I Can Has Cheezburger Funny Wallpapers

    One of the best iPod touch wallpapers sources on iTunes is I Can Has Cheezburger. This isn’t an app just dedicated to kitty LOL’s. It has ROFL Razzi, where you can download epic fail pictures of your favorite celebrities, complete with hilarious, user-uploaded captions. Completing the package are Totally Looks Like, GraphJam, LOL Politics, Epic Fail Blog, dog LOL’s, Engrish Funny and There I Fixed It Bad Repairs.

    You can download any of these wallpapers by tapping the screen and selecting the down arrow button that appears at the bottom. Select “Download Image” to save it to your photo album.

    Demotivational App

    LOL Demotivation has its own app, rife with hilariously irreverent (and sometimes age 17 and older maturity level) pictures. This app mixes celebrities, user-uploaded content, politics, party fails and more and lets users upload captions to the bottom of the photos. If you think the captions and pictures are funny, tap the down arrow button on the bottom of the screen and select the normal or high-resolution image. Wait a few seconds while the image downloads, then fetch it in your photo album.

    Retina Wallpapers HD

    retina This app mixes a lot of high definition wallpapers of all types, not just funny iPod touch wallpapers. However, there are a lot of “quote” wallpapers that are pretty hilarious. You have to do a lot of sifting in order to find them, though. You can usually scan through 12 images at a time, so it goes pretty quickly. Again, click the down arrow to download the image once you find one that you want.
