Hi! I've made this app because I love Unsplash. I wanted super smooth, 60fps scrolling experience where I can see photo optimised for my device. And I made it. Scroll vertically, tilt device to scroll photo horizontally, touch and hold to save it. Simple :)

@rurza this really looks like Polarr's Logo, but better and bolder. Polarr also has an filter collection made by Unsplash and it supposely gives your photos the "Unsplash Look".. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/...
@rurza thank you thank you thank you!
@bwang29 @rurza I actually thought it looks like the Android Boot screen

@bwang29 Wow, I never ever seen this app. :) Fascinating! Background logo was inspired by Siri waveform, especially color blending.
Maker
@plexkits @bwang29 never seen this as well :( Everything is a remix
I can appreciate the simple UX used here, kudos on the intuitive scrolling - but not at the cost of a search feature. Am I supposed to just scroll until I hopefully find something I might be interested in? Seems like that would be key to your MVP, both from product and data perspectives. Or maybe I'm taking this too seriously.

@jimmyamash Hi Jimmy, don't worry :) I'm thinking about: a) native profiles, b) search, c) curated collections (patterns, seasons, main color etc.)
Just downloaded it to try it out and it's as dope as it sounds.
Yes. This is awesome. Back at it again @Unsplash and the Crew team!
God yes this is awesome. I'm tired of using sketchy ad-filled apps to find backgrounds. Great work. Would love to see scrolling be "paged" in the sense that scrolling down will scroll image-by-image, not a continuous scroll (think home screen, not Instagram).
Maker
@markbao There is paging, kind of. If you use inertia with scroll, photo will stop exactly on edge. I was experimenting with typical paging (like on iOS home screen) and it felt a little clunky :)
@rurza Hmm, I don't think I'm seeing this on my side (latest iOS, iPhone 7+) - when I try to inertia-scroll (that means quickly scrolling, right?) the view just goes past multiple photos.
Maker
@markbao right, but eventually it will stop on full photo :)
