iPhone Screenshots


Background is a beautiful, well designed and easy to use Unsplash client, in which you can browse and save high quality photos. Saved images can be used among other things as a wallpaper as they are under Creative Common Zero License which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes, without asking permission from or providing attribution to the photographer or Unsplash.
Save a picture by touching and holding it.
Background is free, but with an in-app purchase you can buy Background Premium, which turns off the unobtrusive ads and unlocks the search.
There are 5 basic screens (the order of which can be changed and screens can be hidden):
– search (requires Background Premium),
– newest photos,
– curated photos,
– favourite photos (requires Background Premium),
– settings.
See more photos by scrolling down or up. You can change the screen by swiping left or right.

Some reviews:

This just might be the best wallpaper app out there, and not just because of the excellent selection of high resolution photos, but also because of the app itself. It’s beautiful, intuitive, fast, and just a joy to use.” by gtg465x – Nov 19, 2017

I love this app! The photos are so tasteful and stunning. And there's tons of them! I tried the search (they let you try for free) and it brought up lots of good stuff." by CalifDude – Dec 2, 2017

"Aesthetically pleasing design
You well never realize how UI is the heart and soul of any application until you actually find one that’s beautiful as this. Easy, friendly and lastly it sticks with the iPhone design guideline." by LittleOrange97 – Nov 7, 2017

"Small Details
It’s all about the small details with this intuitive photo app. From the sleek navigation powered by intelligent swiping gestures to the way motion translates over to how you view each photo (Love how a swipe up perfectly positions the next photo in the collection to fit the screen). This is the best way to view photos from Unsplash." by SileNceR` – Nov 4, 2017

Editors’ Notes

An extraordinary gallery of wallpapers. 📸


High quality photos!

The images are really sharp! I love that the pictures are bigger than the iPhone screen. This is a must when you want to use the picture as a background with the parallax effect on. -The slight zoom the iPhone puts on the image to create the effect for the background doesn’t cause the image to look blurry.- That is my main issue with other background apps. This one has beautifully sharp pictures, even with the zoom.

Another pet peeve of mine is with the plus size iPhones and turning the device sideways. There’s a further zoom into the background in landscape mode. The images are still really sharp there too. I’m thoroughly impressed by that.
Plus the UI of the app makes it fun to scroll through the pictures.
A must for people who change their background nearly daily or more, as I do! 👍

Really good!!!

This app is amazing! All the pictures are clear, and the app itself is very easy to use. The only thing that requires money is if you want the premium version, but it’s a one time payment- it’s not monthly like many other apps. I recommend it to people who like to change their wallpapers frequently and like better quality pictures. There’s also a variety of images unlike many other apps, and the pictures download really quickly to your camera app.
