A must have for every mac user

I rearly do ever write review. But here…since im greated with a new beautiful picture everyday, i had to! It really adds value to my mac :)

Only suggestion would be to have an option where i could choose the categories of wallpapers.

Thank you for this wonderful app :)

Genuinely get excited to see my new wallpaper each day.

I love this app. I genuinely get excited to see my new wallpaper each day.

The only downside is the ease of adding collections to it. The search filter on the website makes finding the desired type of collection a chore rather than a pleasure - it's not user friendly at all. The only other option is adding wallpapers individually, which is what I tried to avoid by downloading the app in the first place.

If that is fixed sometime soon, it would definiately be a 5/5 app.

Mac app is not working properly

Tried to email you few times, but cannot get through your email filter.
I absolutely love your background, but the app has never worked correctly on my Mac OSX. I recently updated to Catalina and I think it feels even worse. When I flick through the wallpapers and find the one I want to use, then I press “Set as Wallpaper”, then it just loads eternally and then gets stuck without an option to do anything. The button below becomes disabled. I have to restart the app to do anything again, but still it does not update the wallpaper. If you need any info from me that could help you to fix this, please let me know.
