Some reviews:
"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!"

Really sad :(

This app used to be wonderful to see new and visually interesting photography, even on the free version! I had this app for over a year, and a few months ago the app stopped working. I figured they were updating some things, so I just ignored it until it started working again. However, the new version almost seems like a ripoff copy of what it was before. All of the text is layered over itself, and the photos don’t move like they’re supposed to (nor will they update to anything besides the same 10 pictures). Almost seemed like they’d been hacked! Overall, the app WAS good, but now whatever they’ve done to it has ruined the entire app.

Delete before 3 days!

I downloaded this app to try it out and initially it won’t let you get past a pop up which requires you to agree to your “free 3 days” of their subscription. There’s no way to get past it without agreeing. I use it a little the first day then don’t come backs for a couple weeks because it’s not that exciting of an app. They have the same few backgrounds it shows you every time I opened it. I saw today a receipt in my email showing that it charged me for two weekly subscriptions ($9.99 per WEEK?!?!?!?) since then. Their prices were never mentioned as a part of the subscription process. I thought I was on a free 3 day trial as they put it and immediately after that it put me on their WEEKLY subscription costing $9.99 which is ridiculous even for an app that has products you would actually use regularly. This app should not be allowed for download! You should know when you’re being robbed of $10 each week for an app subscription that was automatically started at the end of a “free 3 day trial”. Thankfully Apple Support was extremely helpful and worked to get me a refund.

All it does is save an image to your phone that does nothing different than regular images on your phone. Even on “perspective” mode on the background, it hardly moves. You could probably find the same pictures or even better ones online and screenshot them and they would be no different. Downloading this app is useless and a waste of time and storage. Even in the app it had the false advertising of showing moving images but they only move that much in app. If you’re looking for an app that lets you have cool images like this gives you, you get the same things from the app everyone has, it’s called “settings”. Their ads on social media also have very very false advertising and show a background that isn’t in it and doesn’t exist. It was cgi and this whole app is a ripoff. I’m writing this to hopefully save someone the time and storage I had wasted falling into their trap. I honestly don’t know why it has such high reviews.
