[SailfishDevel] Sailfish OS API: changing home/lock screen wallpaper and running your app on schedule

Hi all

As Sailfish SDK nears Beta and phones come closer, I started thinking about
porting one app of mine that is downloading cool flickr wallpapers once in
a while and sets a lockscreen picture or wallpaper. Here's MeeGo version

So before starting it would be cool to check if system APIs for it exist at
all (e.g. BlackBerry 10 doesn't allow you to start an app on schedule at
all, they promise it to be changed in 10.2 only).

So do you know if following APIs exist in Sailfish?

1. Starting your app on schedule or on some frequent event (e.g. on every
screen lock)
1.1 In a headless mode too?
2. Setting lock screen wallpaper or home screen wallpaper. In MeeGo it used
to be controlled by one of GConf entries, and this post suggests that GConf
does control some similar things (ambiance source as for that post) -
