This app confuses me a lot

So the only way to utilize those “beautiful” map wallpapers is by using shortcuts App? I can’t find a single way to save them locally. That’s weird. BTW, how can I get rid of the road names? Showing them on wallpapers is sick. I just need a clean one.

It's great!

Mapaper is great, simple and elegant. Hope there could be some more options such as,
1. Random style (useful during shortcut automation)
2. Slider to control labels to show. For example, show all labels -> no street labels -> no landscape labels -> no label.
3. Blur wallpaper.

Overall great job! Looking forward to future updates!
