Ian Daly ,

(UPDATE) I paid the 1.99 this is a scam

This app doesn’t work. It looks good when you preview the picture with the border but when you actually try to set it as a wallpaper the effect doesn’t work

UPDATE: the developer sent me a video responding to my review that actually showed how to correctly align the wallpaper. I just wish that was implemented in the app more clearly

Hi Ian,
Sorry to hear it isn’t working right for you, if you have any of the X iPhones (X, XR, XS or XS Max) it can be a little tricky setting the created wallpaper as it isn’t correctly aligned to the top by default (I’m not sure why Apple made this design decision).
Because of this it unfortunately requires a little manual adjustment, and that adjustment is different depending on if you have Reduced Motion turned on or off.
Here’s a page on my website with videos showing the process: armchairengineering.com/notched-how-to
I hope that helps, if not please get in touch via the support page and I’ll try to assist you further.

Worth the Money

This is exactly what I was looking for to make my own bordered wallpaper. Nice job. If possible, I’d love to see these future additions...
* exported wallpaper sized so no manual alignment is needed.
* lock screen and home screen specific embellishments like lightened circles for the lock screen’s flash light and camera buttons, and a home screen lightened or colored area for the dock.
* access to other Photos folders, like the Recent or even Hidden folder, because that’s where I keep my wallpapers.
