Hello Artem,

I guess that there is nothing like a cron-like thing for userspace 
applications available on Sailfish, so better write your daemon.

Changing wallpaper with gconf do not change the ambiance, and that would be a 
pity to have an ambiance not matching the wallpaper honestly. 

And about the app store thing, the best is to wait I guess. The information 
will be revealed at some point (quickly I hope).
