This is Great!

When I was a Windows guy, I used to have a program that changed your background desktopo daily to a new photo. Can’t remember what it was called, but this is exactly what I was looking for for the Mac. It is wonderful and the photos it displays are mostly awesome. if you don’t like it, you can change it. You can also set the new background interval from every 30 minutes to every month. You can also schedule your next update to whatever time you want within 24 hours. This is really well done and the photo community is very good.

A jewel

A Top Notch app for your Mac. Instantly makes your screen so beautiful. And the pics from unsplash? Simply stunning. Basic version is free, does a great job, but definitely recommend the full version. Maybe a future upgrade with option to hide desktop icons & a music player built in, with less time like 5 min pic change interval? Would just sit back, put on some music n admire the Unsplash pics on the screen...A beautiful way to explore the world... Thank You for creating such a beautiful app.

Great photos and slick, true macOS app

Polished app! I've tried some other software before trying Irvue, and they either had no-so-great photos (grainy), had a clunky interface, or were overly obtrusive.

Irvue integrates very well with Unsplash collections and it has an easy to use interface with many very interesting features (like changing appearence between light and dark mode to match the wallpaper). It is unobtrusive and its configuration is very flexible.
