What's New in Version 5.0
Updated for iOS6 and iPhone 5
Great! Definitely a must have!
This app is great - it's got a lot of varied backgrounds and downloads very quickly to my camera roll. I use pictures from it all the time! The categories are well named as well.
I have two suggestions for the developers that would make this app even more fantastic.
One, make it so that when we download a background, we automatically get an option to open our settings so we can change our background to the picture we just downloaded. I don't want to share my new picture, I want it as my background!
Two, please make it possible for us to move the categories to where we like. I don't want to girls names front and center, I would prefer the planes and military categories up at the top. My sister however, would love the fantasy category at the top and would never even dream of using the cars categories. Being able to move the categories would be awesome! Thanks, great app, and looking forward to the next version! :)
R u kidding!? Limited pics, poor UI...
They're right about it not usually saving unless you change your privacy settings.
But worse is the lack of and quality of pictures. Only the first few pages in each section are decent wallpapers. After that the designer is consistently adding pictures of people's arms, backs, hip bones... with tattoos (when I'm looking for a picture of flowers, butterflies, animals... I don't want to start seeing pictures of people with tattoos or a page of examples for people to pick out a tattoo), uses stolen images from digital scrapbooking packs, starts using low resolution images (even a few regular snap shots), adds unrelated pictures under categories, uses pictures that are common to a bunch of wallpaper apps, and even starts duplicating pictures in the same category. There are lots better apps like this out there. Don't waste your time.
Great....but needs more content
It's always been a consistent app for good pics & lots of categories/variety of topics, but new pictures are very far and few between. You can view them by either recent or popular, but the recent category is a scam. All they are is rearranged & mixed up....NOT new:( please add daily pics much more often and I'll enjoy the app as much as I used to!!
