What’s New

We got a bit bored of seeing the same images on our desktops around the office, so we created a brand new collection of photos that also happen to be more suited to hi-resolution screens. Win, win.

We also sneaked in a few fixes and improvements.

Great images for someone who is normally picky

I’m generally very picky about what I like to have on my desktop. It can’t be too busy, no cars or anime woman, etc. So I was skeptical that I’d like any app that just dispalyed whatever images it wanted to out of it’s library. Wow have I been surprised. I think there have only been one or two images that I didn’t really care for, but everything else has been spectacular. I would give it five stars if it had like a next/previous button in the tray menu and if it would let you pick different images for different desktops. Overall, I’m really happy.

good concept, poor execution

This was a really good idea for a laptop app, and I was very impressed with the idea when I first found it, but the app itself does not work very well. After a few days of using the app, I realized that I just liked looking at my own pictures better. When I tried to delete the app, I couldn’t at first because it was still open, or something like that. So then I tried launhcing the app to close out of it properly, or at least turn off the program it is running. Unfortunately I couldn’t do this. I am unable to simply open the app, and it is really annoying because I do not like having to look at pictures of horses on my laptop all day.
One last note- when I tried o just change the wallpaper via system preferences, it worked for a few minutes, and then it changed back to the Unsplash pictures. I am very disappointed in the app because I thought I would have more control over the pictures being displayed, and I certainly never thought that I wouldn’t be able to launch the app.

Nifty app

Changed my review to 2 stars due to the preferences setting doesnt actually work on automatically changing the background after a week, like I have set it. Please fix this crap.

I like it but I wish I could remove the menubar icon from view. I kinda just want to set it and forget it while not being shown in the menu bar to keep things clutter free. I would also like to designate a place to download images, instead of the downloads folder, and also set the app to automatically download images to the set designated directory as it automatically updates my wallpaper. If this happens, there should be a notification shown on the side bar confirming that the image has been downloaded. This is just in case that I forget to that this is happening in the background and wonder why my disk is filling up, given that the images are nearly 4K. A hard notification everytime it is downloaded would help, versus the check mark hiden in the menubar preference icon.
