Those of you who love to have random but always great wallpaper have probably heard of about 500 Firepapers. It's an application created by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire and since late 2013 has changed the look of many Android homescreens. Unfortunately, according to the developer, 500 Firepapers will not work this June. 500px will terminate its API
500px is a place where professional photographers share their work. Artists create their portfolios and upload their works to get their own recognition. The site offers a few plans, including a free one that allows you to upload seven photos per week. Photos are sorted by category so anyone can find high quality footage. The Canadian startup has been providing public API access since 2011, just as it has 500 firepapers. While the 500px API closure is still to be confirmed on the company's official blog, Chainfire announced that the API will be closed on June 15 and its app will stop working.

Unfortunately, this means that you have the 500 Firepaper Can no longer use app to get photos from 500px. Without a suitable image retrieval source, the application will probably be outdated. So far, the app has been installed more than 500,000 times, so we can assume that the site has generated significant traffic. The news that the API will be shut down by 500px is a big hit for all lovers of photography.
If you want to enjoy the application in the last few weeks of its existence, you can go to its forum thread or go to the Play Store to get the latest version.
