  • Pros: 

    nice interface, reminds me of spotify

    Cons: 

    add favorite playlists to roll with less clicks

    From the overview of your favorite playlists, it would be nice to see what has been added to your roll. I see myself adding many of your curated lists and changing this over time. So it would be a matter of adding a "switch" button to add or remove the favorite playlists from my roll.

Hey Product Hunters, I’m from the Wallpaper Wizard team. We’ve put a lot of effort into this app and we’re celebrating our launch today! 🚀 Ask me anything or just share your thoughts so we can make the best wallpaper app in the universe :)

@_n1ks The app looks really great, congrats! What is the source for the pictures?

@daria_staverska1 Part of the images are licensed from Depositphotos, all of them are part of the curated collection.

@daria_staverska1 Thanks for the question! In short, we have several sources: websites with CC0 images (unsplash, pixabay), personal connections with authors and also we’ve partnered with depositphotos.com so part of the content is licensed from them. Also, we have an editorial team who manually select images and group them into nice collections by theme + there is an imagga.com integration under the hood, so each image is tagged to simplify search in the app.

@_n1ks Just curious and not wanting to criticise one of my fave companies, but you mention 'launch' and 'a lot of effort', but for a 1.9.4 version that happens to share the name and functionality with the old HD wallpaper app Wallpaper Wizard by VOX makers Coppertino, can you share what differentiates the two? Or is it the same app, with a brand new UI? Also: will there be a trial version? And what's the price of the in-app purchase?
Ton@t55 · Mac'aholic
@_n1ks Reading the reviews helps I guess. The in-app purchase is $5, so the total cost will be $15. Also: no 5K Wallpapers yet.

@t55 Answering here to both comments :) So actually these are two different apps, we didn't use anything from the old one cause it was made in 2013 or something in that timeframe. We took the core principles (favorites and collection grouping) and spoke with 100+ users of the old version to understand what they were missing and what they see as a value. Eventually, we ended up adding the Roll feature as you see it as well as menu app for easier control, support of different modes for multiple-displays and most important we found all the content you see in the app. We do not say that there are a lot of 5k images, however, all are starting from 4k (that's the minimum) and running up to 8k. We've made an in-app purchase free during the launch so be sure to grab it now :) There is a Setapp version of the app which you can use along with other 60+ apps for a month for free.

@_n1ks Thanks for clearing things up.:) Good to know how both versions relate. Happy to know that the in-app purchase is free during launch.
