Background is a beautiful, well designed and easy to use Unsplash client, in which you can browse and save high quality, curated photos. The collection is updated every day. Saved images can be used among other things as a wallpaper as they are under Creative Common Zero License which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes, without asking permission from or providing attribution to the photographer or Unsplash.
Save a picture by touching and holding it.
Background is free, but with an in-app purchase you can buy Background Premium, which turns off the unobtrusive ads and unlocks the search.
There are 4 basic screens (the order of which can be changed and screens can be hidden):
– search (requires Background Premium),
– newest, hand-picked photos,
– favourite photos (requires Background Premium),
See more photos by scrolling down or up. You can change the screen by swiping left or right.
– Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.
– Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.
– Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal.
– Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase.
– Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.
"This is best wallpaper app. I highly recommend as this the first the wallpaper app I’ve used in 3 years before the others for the most part were pretty tacky. These are high quality wallpaper and there is a wide variety of them."
"This is just the best collection of photos ever created and beautifully formatted for your device period! Thank you!"
"I absolutely love this app. The photos are from incredible photographers, and the images are high quality. Beautiful!! Such an easy app to use-and not frustrating at all."
"This app is fantastic, by far the best wallpaper app I’ve seen. It has a great minimalistic design for finding new wallpapers and buying the premium is only one time, and totally worth it. Wallpapers are gorgeous and HQ, totally worth it!"

Ratings and Reviews
Okay so loved this app for the longest time, then my worst fear happens and I get to see a close up HD image of a tarantula. NO THANK YOU. And deleted. I loved this app, but no one wants to see that crap.
Developer Response ,
Use to be a great app. Even paid to unlock the full version. Now it crashes all the time and took away the features I’ve already paid for once and placed them behind a subscription model. No email. No warning. What were they thinking?-smh
No way Jose
Looked like a promising app from reviews I’ve read on the internet. They must have changed their business model... $30/month for a wallpaper app... when I could easily get their “curated” wallpapers from other sources (thanks Unsplash and Vellum!!) for free. NO THANKS! Hard pass bro.
