2020 Best Wallpaper App Award

After testing and evaluating several highly-rated wallpaper apps, I’m awarding The Wallpaper App “Best Wallpaper App”. It’s fantastic! The generative algorithms used to create unique yet customizable wallpapers over and over again is great. It is so easy to produce a wide variety of subtle, non-distracting backgrounds for your home and lock screen—without scrolling through all sorts of garbage images (that should never be used as wallpapers) that are present in so many other wallpaper apps! My only suggestion would be an option to always add a subtle black gradient to the top of each image to help hide the notch (when exporting for “this device”), or a black OR white gradient at the top to make the menu bar more readable in Big Sur (when exporting desktop-class images, which, yes, this app also lets you do!)

Thanks for the amazing review!! We really like your idea of adding the gradient, thanks 👍👍

Nice ambient wallpapers!

Beautiful app which creates random-patterned and colored backgrounds and wallpapers just by tapping. Love the 3D look of many of them--they really "pop" in HD! You can have detailed patterns or simple background gradients--whatever you choose. Highly recommend it!

Cool Idea, Too Little User Control

- simplicity of tapping and swiping to see different versions or different designs
- results more often than not look pretty good
- pre-determined palettes are a good idea
- blur slider is a nice option

- WAY too many color palettes, dumped in an unorganized list
- inability to add or remove color palettes (as if anyone could filter through the millions)
- inability to choose individual colors
- inability to use fewer than four colors (the app seems to add one back semi-randomly if you remove one)
- inability to choose a specific variation of style, random only
- inability to choose colors for specific layers/assert, random only
- linear navigation with no looping

If I could summarize my disappointment it’s that I was expecting a more robust wallpaper creation tool whereas the app feels something closer to a wallpaper aggregator that allows randomizing of the colors.

Hey there and thanks for the detailed review. We’ve got plans to address some of these points soon so keep checking back on us. We originally made the app to be a random discovery type of experience- but we are adding in ‘creation’ features over time. It’s tricky to find the right balance between these two methods and keep everyone happy - but we’ll give it our best shot 👍
