These are high quality wallpaper and there is a wide variety of them." "This is just the best collection of photos ever created and beautifully formatted for your device period! Thank you!" "I absolutely love this app. The photos are from incredible photographers, and the images are high quality. Beautiful!! Such an easy app to use-and not frustrating at all." "This app is fantastic, by far the best wallpaper app I’ve seen. It has a great minimalistic design for finding new wallpapers and buying the premium is only one time, and totally worth it. Wallpapers are gorgeous and HQ, totally worth it!"

    Do NOT get this app!!!!!! It will charge you more than you sign on for!!! It’s horrible! Please take my word for it! It’s drained $50 dollars out of my account in a month! I wasn’t aware of it! DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!
  • Don’t download

    By eljst
    I paid for premium and the app no longer works. No updates, shows me the same photos every time, buggy (blank/missing photos, none of the links work, only a few photos before the feed ends), no way to contact the developer. Can’t restore my premium purchase either. The link does nothing. Don’t download it!
  • Fix

    By Serno
    It show landscape which I think is cool but after a while it would only show puppies and I hate puppies
  • Disappointed.

    I used to LOVE this app, it was my go to app to get quality wallpapers from. But the state of the app right now is heartbreaking. Please bring back the old design.
  • Used to be great.

    By MateusXI
    Apparently even though I supported the app before they changed to the subscription model I don’t get grandfathered in. It’s very sad that now I have to search for replacement for this app. It used to be my go to. It’s a huge slap in the face to choose from a few dog/cat photos that they force on you if you’re not a “premium” member. Thanks but not thanks.
  • This is fake

    By JacobH323
    The app was nothing like the ad on Snapchat
  • Used to be awesome

    By knitwritelove
    This was the *only* place I went for great iPhone backgrounds, but I’m not happy with how they’ve changed it. Used to be that premium was a one-time purchase, which I got because it was so worth it. But now it’s an over-priced weekly/monthly subscription for the same thing I had already bought. I wasn’t grandfathered in for purchasing the old premium, either. The app just stopped letting me download HD images and I was like WTAF.. so I deleted it once I figured out what had happened. Back to the drawing board..
  • Not worth it

    By mellohdee
    This app used to be great. It’s awful now can’t even do a free trial without getting ripped off. Don’t download
  • Horrible pictures

    By oooooooo🐛🐙
    If you decide not to upgrade/pay money it only hows you a couple pictures and they’re all of dogs! I like dogs but I don’t understand this app.
  • Is this app still operating?

    By ProstatePuncher
    I have the app on my phone but it doesn’t load anything and I can’t search for it in the App Store, I just had to google about this app to find it. I really loved this app and I hope it comes back in some way or a different app.
  • Fosho don’t buy

    By realreviewist
    Saw an ad and installed it. Literally nothing remotely like the advertisement and a total waste of space.
  • Free trial

    By sleppingirl
    Hi can’t get out of the free trail give me at least one picture
  • Isabella

    By bella131425
    This app is very limited, and it requires premium access to do literally anything. Not worth time, or downloading on your phone. Such a disappointment.

    By MysteryRidertoo
    This app is terrible I got it but it won’t let me pass the 3 day app it so stupid and they are tell u to put your number for ur card in just to get into the app.
  • Too expensive

    By jgsjgxgcjttxgkvvtrdhuew
    The ads were really catchy, so I downloaded the app. However, it is WAY too expensive for these pictures. Might as well get pictures off of Pinterest. :( for those of you who want wallpapers like this but for free, go check out Live Wallpapers. You can also take a picture of clothes or something, and it will find the same color wallpaper.
  • Rip off

    By Mandy0921
    Advertised for a free trial and i didn’t get one! Was charged right off the bat, misleading and I want my money back!!!
  • Not free!!

    By Taytunat
    The app actually cost $30! Don’t download
  • Took my money

    By Veryupset692
    I clicked the button to have a free trial and the app charged me $25. First off, why would you design the app to open up a purchase screen for a FREE trial. Second, why would anyone want to pay $25 for a bunch of pictures. The app was practically designed to scam you the moment you download it and quite frankly I want my money back but I know I’ll never get it.
  • Nothing what the adds say it is

    By cycrduvihif
    I SAW THIS ON SNAP and it showed the app was awesome!! Please don’t download!!! This is a rip-off!
  • The first time I’m feeling scammed

    By userdan366444
    Clicked free trial (never had this app before), and ended up being charged for 1 month subscription $30 (while the weekly subscription is $3.99). Not about the money, but the fact itself.
  • Scam

    By kayleesowell
    The app said there was a free trial and when I clicked on free trial it charged my card $29.99. If I could give this app 0 stars I would. I wouldn’t be as mad if there were actual live wallpapers like the ones advertised.
  • Way overpriced

    By deswes15
    The free version of the app only allows you 10 photos of dogs to choose from and if you wish to see more you have to upgrade to the premium version which is $29.99 A MONTH. no thanks.
  • Bruh.

    By CløudScientist
    Its Literally Just Pictures Of Dogs. Dude.
  • I really don’t like it

    By hahrhdjnf
    I’m a little girl 11 to be exact. But my parents are the type of parents who wouldn’t pay for a game like Minecraft or like this game. So knowing that you have to pay in order to get backgrounds is pretty sad. There is a free trial but you still have to pay after the trial is done so I’d rather not have the app. I haven’t seen the backgrounds or anything else so yeah. This must be thought coming from a 11 year old
  • Don’t download

    By boring and broken
    This is bad they only show a amount of photos and only dogs the should add more to it like land scapes cities and cartoons and moving photos this is a rip off don’t download 😡😡😡😡

  • A new camera roll

    By noahh s
    Looked really cool when I saw an ad about it but it’s just a bunch of dog pictures...along with that it’s basically a dead app, no buttons or menus just scrolling through random pictures would give a zero star
  • Terrible

    By Review experts 8462936
    This app is absolutely TRASH!
  • I didn’t know

    By I'm 99
    So I was planing to find a moving back round for my iPhone and then I did it know that you had to pay and I got really sad cause I was really looking forward to finding a moving background for my phone don’t install the app if you don’t want to pay $19.00 per year then the app doesent want to work
  • Worst app

    By BigChris01
    This app is a scam like bruh 4.2 stars it’s the worst app my lord

    By kk_vibes
    You have to pay for a free trial and it declined mine and it gave me ugly puppy pictures and the one on Snapchat was emojis and mine don’t look like that DO NOT GET THIS APP
  • Rip-off

    By maximillionare
    I paid for the premium version, developer took money and the app no longer works. Nice
  • Used to love this app

    By kevin3stuckey
    This was my favorite wallpaper app. I downloaded so many wallpapers on here and would like to continue doing so. I loved tracking the designers and seeing that I kept using the same designers for the backgrounds. I love when you scrolled, it would automatically slow and snap the photo into full view. It was such a simple and elegant wallpaper app. But this app stopped recently and the app is broken. What happened?!? If I need to get a premium membership to support the app, I’ll do it. I just want my favorite wallpaper app back.
  • what happened to this app?

    By LyricsToTheGo
    this app was amazing a few months ago but now everything is broken and the UI is so janky. it doesn’t even update the wallpapers. i’m gonna delete the app right now.
  • ******Criminal Level Activity*****

    By CSCAR377
    Well done on sneaking in a $9.99 per week charge on this. I never agreed to this charge. Download said $4.95 per year. Now I have been took on a little ride for over $100. Do not fall for this like I did. It is a scam.
  • Plz read!

    By Legofan98
    I love this app, but I’ve had background premium before, and I can’t restore my purchase! That’s all! Plz fix this! Thx! Keep it up!:)
  • Absolute Garbage!!

    By Annqurat16
    This app is complete garbage.. the interface looks dated and broken - search bar appears behind the notch - the wallpapers are often low resolution and a lot of the times they don’t even load up .. to top it off these folks wanna charge 20 bucks a year just to let you search for images by keywords, when almost all their content is sourced from Unsplash. Wouldn’t recommend touching this with a ten foot pole.
  • It stop working

    By ;)j
    I used to loved this app now it stop working
  • What Happened??

    By stephenz12
    This a a huge step back in the design and function of the app. Ever since the update from about two months ago, this app has been a strange. This version is no longer optimized for the iPhone XS Max and the design looks generic or a copycat now compared to what it was a few months ago. This was my favorite wallpaper app but I had to now delete the app for another one that actually works as it’s supposed to.
  • Payed 20.00 for premium but App won’t acknowledge purchase

    By Yodermand
    I payed my yearly subscription but I can’t search, can’t save and can’t contact the developers about my problem. So here is my review. Downloaded it multiple times on Apple IPad. The App continues to offer upgrade I have already paid. I click on pay again and get the your subscription has already started, but no functionality, just a frozen requires premium page that is dead to the touch. Let’s fix this please. — New entry after more attempts to get any use out of this app: Okay; I am done; subscription cancelled.
  • Weird...

    By Over Excited Fangirl
    Used to be a really simple and functional app that had amazing wallpapers!! Now, for me, its just random stock photos of dogs. Really weird; I ended up just deleting the app. If youre looking for an app with good wallpapers, this isnt one anymore. :(
  • Disappointing

    By asylumescapade
    Used to be an amazing app with tons of beautiful pictures and worked flawlessly. Now, it’s glitchy and doesn’t load half the time. I made a purchase for premium which used to be a one time $6 purchase. Now they’ve switched to a terrible version with an annual $20 purchase. Now I have to find a new app to get my aesthetic backgrounds :(
  • App Used to be Great

    By Notacapulet
    Now it’s garbage. It feels like someone hacked their app and made it awful. I paid for premium, as well, but no longer get those features. Don’t bother.
  • Abused Purchase

    By Mikelwriter85
    Before this was a subscription based app, it was a “one time purchase” app.… which I did. I spent money on this app only to move to a subscription based model. Now, though they tried to honor those purchases, those who were ‘grandfathered’ in are left with low resolution photos and no way to refund said purchase because of how long ago the purchase was made. It’s disappointing how they treat their customers. Unethical business model which will deter me from recommending this app or returning it to my devices again.
  • Can’t restore

    By DriveThro
    Can’t restore premium subscription. Nothing happens when hitting the button
  • Were they hacked???

    By Javontay McElroy
    I had been using this app for over a year and paid for the premium and the app always supplied me with high quality wallpapers with a nice user experience. Then suddenly that all changed. There’s like 10 dog pictures and cat pictures and the search is broken, the entire user experience that once was is now gone, idk what happened or what that are doing or have done. Such a shame too, app was one of my favorites. Now it’s legit trash. 🚮
  • Used to be good... no clue what happened and I want my money back.

    By cyan1000
    This used to be a phenomenal app to use for looking and saving beautiful wallpapers. I purchased the premium service because I figured the setup they had before was through that gateway and they were simply showing a “watered down” low quality version of what was. Boy was I wrong. Once you purchase premium nothing resets, and there’s no difference in the app, except of course the part where now they have your $20. There’s no help section, and the “Contact Us” button does not work. I tried deleting the app and resetting my phone but nothing changed. They’ve either been hacked or had a change of heart, and decided to start scamming people. I just want my money back.
  • A husk of what it once was.

    By rikomenzies
    One day it stopped working altogether. Now, all I get on the feed are dogs and cats. I can’t just keep scrolling like I used to. If I search for a category it only returns a small handful of results. What happened?
  • Sad

    By vuittonbrown1
    This app used to be so great, and now it’s not useful at all. This is what happens when developers become money-hungry. If you’re reading this, download the ‘Unsplash’ app. That’s where all of the photos were sourced from anyway.
