An obviosly required and Awesome app! but…. - i was dissapioinbted in seeing the lack of options when choosing rotating time intervals. A 30 min or 1 hour interval maybe? im excited to not have to save images manually anymore, and also an option to choose catagories? You guys might already be working on that. Thanks unplsash team!

Changes all desktops to the same image :( - I’m sure this is a great app and I love Unsplash photos, but as a Mac user who works with mutiple different desktops at a time and likes to have a different background on each one, this app is missing that feature. I was hoping to use my own pictures on all but one of my desktops and then have the unsplash app changing the picture for that one, but it ended up changing all my backgrounds to the same picture which I can’t have. It would also be nice if it could change more frequently than daily. When / if an update is released that lets me tell it which desktop I want to use, I’ll revisit this app. But in the meantime, I’ll have to pass for a while until it gets more functionality. :(
Great Idea! - I love it! Having the amazing photography from Unsplash on my desktop automatically is great. The app is nearly perfect- the only request I have is to include the option to change wallpaper more frequently, like every 30 minutes.
My laptop thanks you - Easy to use and I like being able to preview the wallpaper. This would have been 5 stars if there were more options for when the wallpaper changes (1 hour intervals, maybe). I’d also like to be able to “like” the photo without having to open the site on a browser. Other than that, I love the simplicity and being able to see it right in the menu bar.
Great, simple - Fantastic app. Only suggestion for improvement would be to include a “back” button when rotating through photos.
I was so happy to see this app in the app store! - I was to excited to see this app in the app store Friday Morning!!! I opened it for the first time this morning (Sat) and used the very first wallpaper I saw :) It was absolutely stunning on my 27 inch imac… One suggestion for future releases is to add a back button in case the user wants to go back to a particular wallpaper. Other than that, beautiful app!
