Background – beautiful photos from Unsplash
iOS iPhone Photography
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
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

– Navigation. Now the app starts at the second screen. It's more ergonomic. Starting screen is marked in the Settings.
– New localizations: Chinese, German, Italian, Norwegian and Polish.
– Search! All Background Premium users can search for photos. If you're not sure whether it's worth your money, you can try it out for one day. Background Premium also removes ads.
– Bugfixes (for example this nasty alert which couldn't be dismissed is gone now)!
– The app size is smaller.
– Now the app automatically manages cache on disk.
