Background – beautiful photos
By Adam Rozynski
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 4 basic screens (the order of which can be changed):
– search (requires Background Premium),
– newest photos,
– curated photos,
See more photos by scrolling down or up. You can change the screen by swiping left or right.
"Best wallpaper app EVER
Omg this is definitely the BEST wallpaper app I have ever gotten. You should definitely get this if you're looking for a wallpaper app with good content. This will always be my wallpaper go to!" by Star Wars And Undertale – Jun 17, 2017
"I have never loved an app more!
Found this app when looking for a new background for my iPhone. When I opened it and looked through the pictures, I was AMAZED! I have never seen more beautiful pictures. I probably laid in bed for over an hour saving so many pictures because I couldn't stop looking. Amazing job to the artists and amazing app! I have always loved photography and nature as my background. Never loved an app more, honestly. Such a great app!!!!" by allyrenee11 – Apr 26, 2017
I've been a fan of unsplash for a while but never thought of using the images for my iPhone. Beautiful images and nice clean app. Can't wait for the updates like adding filters and favourites." by KnotThinking – Feb 12, 2017

Refreshingly simple; great content
It’s a wallpapers app on the surface, one with exceptional content at that. I’d also say that there seems to be a better response from iOS when implementing these images as backgrounds on devices, over the traditional browser/saved to images route, as the images look much sharper.
However the best thing about the app, is the refreshingly simple yet thought out way in which it delivers it’s purpose (wallpapers!).
Have an iPhone 7+/8+/X? In that case you have a sexy device. Don’t keep it stock or use a low res background. Get something from this great app and network of awesome talent. Well done and well worth a the price happy hour “craft beer”.
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.
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.
