Splasher is the best way to browse photos from Unsplash.com for iOS. Features include:
- Search photos and collections
- Save photos to your device
- Share photos to other apps
- Alert users when new photos are available in the Latest feed
- Apply basic filters to photos
- Great for wallpapers for your iPhone or iPad
- All features are completely free
New features are in the works to extend even more Unsplash.com functionality.
- The image filters have been overhauled to be much, much faster (using the Image Quality setting can speed these up even more if you don't need the highest resolution).
- Updated some things to run on the latest-and-greatest version of Unsplash's API.
NOTE: App versions prior to 1.9.0 rely directly on the Splasher backend servers to help with photo filters. That changed in 1.9.0. These particular servers will be shut down no later than Feb 12, 2018. If you have not updated to 1.9.0 before then you will see issues with certain features in the app and some features will cease to work properly. If you stay up to date then you have nothing to worry about!
Ratings and Reviews
Very Good (missing a few key features)
This is the best unofficial Unsplash client in terms of speed. Near continuous scroll and image preview resolution settings make for a great user experience. However, the app falls short in a couple areas (I know your only one person). You can't view collections, sign into your account to save images you find to your own collections, or thank the photographer/artist. These 3 features are the most important to me. Nice job on optimizing for iPhone X though, it looks beautiful.
Splasher is the quintessential addition for any user of Unsplash! I love this app and the ease of use. The additional filters that you can add are incredible in that they apply so quick and easy.
Adding my favorite pics from Unsplash is fast and efficient for my business, especially because I rely on being able to get high quality images and Splasher allows me to bring them right into my phone and keep making magic happen on the go! You’d be crazy to not use this.
The app has been stable and reliable for me and I think it’s even a little easier to browse than on Unsplash itself!
Thanks for creating such a powerful app!
Big white configure circle never goes away
There is now a big circle configure button in bottom right area that stays on screen the whole time... it obscures the view. At least have it disappear or have a swipe from side menu.
When you are able to view a image it’s compressed and looks horrible on low setting, standard is better but is slow like stated and high is in bearable as images take way too long to load to enjoy it... so you’re stuck with either lower resolution which defeats the purpose of viewing the images, lol.
Need to find a way to make high resolution load faster and the thumbnails don’t need to be high resolution, just the actual image.
Also unable to cancel loading an image be going back as the app freezes until it’s loaded, lol.
Developer Response ,
The new settings button may or may not change. There are some new features coming that will be using that button. Sorry if it bothers you! I'll definitely take it into consideration.
Also, sorry you aren't seeing high-quality photos! If you check the new settings menu there is an "Image Quality" setting. If you set that to "High" Splasher will load full-resolution photos from Unsplash!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
