Background – beautiful photos from Unsplash

By Adam Rozynski

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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,
– settings.
See more photos by scrolling down or up. You can change the screen by swiping left or right.

Some reviews:

"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

"Beautiful images.
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

I rarely write review for apps (sorry not sorry). But this app so far is the greatest app to browse photos from Unsplash." by gangstafat – Feb 10, 2017

Customer Reviews

By far my favorite app for stunning images!

I have been a member of Unsplash for about a year and contribute my own photos occasionally. This has been my #1 go-to place for beautiful images, so I was delighted when I learned that they created Background as a mobile solution! Before I was having to download my favorite photos, upload to Dropbox, then save to my iPhone (which was still well-worth the effort). Background really saves me time and makes my life easier. The app is easy to navigate, intuitive, and just designed exceptionally with the end-user in mind. A huge "Thanks" to the creators and the folks and community at Unsplash. I love it!

Great app, little ads

I was waiting for someone to use their API for something like this. I have a folder on my desktop with thousands of photos already. Time to get the same on my phone.

App looks and feels great, it's very simple. Maybe use smaller text for the artist names? Automatically crop the photo with exactly how you rotated your device? That's all I got. Thanks for the app!

Perfectly Simple

I love getting backgrounds from Unsplash for my desktop and phone. This makes it simpler for the phone. I will when I can pay the $3.99 for the app just to support the developer. I have no need for search and the add don't bother me. This is just extremely well made. Kudos!!
