What's New

Version 1.1

In this version, a little improvement that will make some people happy, and a new feature that we call Time Machine. That was our idea.

First, the improvement. The application now changes the wallpaper on the current monitor only. So you can keep your favorite​ cat/baby photo on one monitor and let Unsplash Wallpapers update the other. If you want the wallpaper to update across all of your monitors and spaces, we’ve added a new preference that you can enable.

Now, what’s this time-machine we mentioned earlier? It’s simply a history of all the photos that you go through in the preview and set as a wallpaper. There’s an icon in the top right corner to access it. Photos that have a checkmark are the ones that were used as a wallpaper previously.

The history starts from the date you update the app, as we didn’t keep track of the photos you updated in the past. Yup, not a real time-machine, sorry (with a Canadian accent).

A must have for every mac user


I rearly do ever write review. But here…since im greated with a new beautiful picture everyday, i had to! It really adds value to my mac :)

Only suggestion would be to have an option where i could choose the categories of wallpapers.

Thank you for this wonderful app :)

Good app


Been waiting for someone to make this app for ages!

Only suggestion:
Why not add options to change the wallpaper every 30 mins, every hour, etc, instead of minimum of daily.



Awesome app! It would be great if you could Categorise picture rotation. such as urban, nature etc.
some of the pictures are not very high resolution but most are sharp!
Highly recommend this app! gives the Mac a fresh new look.
