The best wallpaper app on the store

I went from almost never changing my lock screen to changing it almost weekly. It's really nice to always have a new piece of art to enjoy - adds a little bit of fun to life. The signal to noise ratio of good backgrounds is high vs other apps I found on the store with crappy graphics and cliche photos.

Some of the reviews complain that you can't browse via artists or museums (it's just a sequential feed of random art) but I personally like it. I don't know art well enough to browse intelligently, and I like the variety the feed design gives me.

Not as expected

I rarely ever download apps from the App Store that requires any type of purchase but I went out on a limb for this because of the way the description presented itself. I love art, I wanted a new background that wasn’t just an inspirational quote or a Ferrari back ground or something and I thought this would be a nice app and a good investment.
The description and pictures from the app make it seem like you will be able to choose from certain artists or themes or whatever and have more free range to choose a painting. In reality there are no features whatsoever other than to swipe back and forth to the next painting and save it to your camera roll. If this is what somebody would like, I get that. But in my taste of an app and the way it made the app sound, I thought it would be more open to choice and have a menu and categories. Not just “here’s a painting, scroll forever if you want to find one you like”
I’m really disappointed this app wasn’t set up the way I’d like. Normally I wouldn’t be angry and I would just be disappointed, delete the app and move on. But I paid for it, I don’t intend to use it again and Apple did not accept my refund request. Probably the last time I’m gonna purchase something from the App Store, I’m always let down.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you for your feedback! We have plans on adding more control over what you see in the app. There's no exact timeline yet, but it will be implemented at a later point.

Good App but need to update

This is a good App which I’ve been looking for long time, and it does contain many art pictures. I used it to set my wall paper on my iPad, it’s beautiful and matches my iPad setups. Sometimes I also watch the painting and enjoy the world of arts.
But, it is really bothering once I want to look back what I saw or search, I have no clue of what it is. There is no library or museum information, no catalogue, no list or suggestions. If the App always keeps like this, it has no difference to go to website or search with Google, even it is better if I search with Google I can easily get more information and more related paintings. Why I need to pay $5 if the App just creates a link or cache of the painting?
Please update the App with sorting functions with catalogue or library information, even better if it can come with some more introduction except the name and author. I am happy to download and recommend to my friends if it has more functions
