If you have an iPhone 4, you now with the new iOS that you can change your background on your iPhone. And with the Retina Display that Apple uses, that background can now look sharp. I know for me, I wanted to find some sweet wallpapers for my iPhone. So I figured I could just go online and find a picture that I thought would be good and put it on my iPhone. Well, that didn’t work so well as I soon found out that because of the size of the iPhone and the size of most pictures that are on the internet are different, the picture won’t look so good on your iPhone. Well, that is a bummer! But, here comes Retina Wallpapers to the rescue.
Retina Wallpapers is an app that you can download from the App Store for free. And believe me, it will easily help solve the problem of finding the “right” wallpaper for your iPhone 4. Let me show you how this app works and why I think it is so easy to use and why I think you will spend hours looking up wallpapers.
When you first open the app you are presented with literally thousands of different wallpapers to choose from. There are three different categories, Recent, Popular, and Random. You can also search for a wallpaper as well. Most of the wallpapers that are on the app are user submitted so the wallpapers are constantly updated with new ones.
Once you find a wallpaper you like, you can save it to your iPhone, then set it as your wallpaper. You can find ones for your homescreen, like the one below or ones for your lockscreen as well. The nice part about the app is since it is free you can download as many wallpapers as you want. I personally have about 20 that I downloaded and have used on my iPhone.
A couple other options to note here is that if you don’t like the ads you can upgrade to the pro version for $5. For me, that is kind of a steep price to pay just for an app without ads. I don’t mind the ads and since its free that is fine with me. For you serious wallpaper designers or even not so serious, you can also upload your own wallpaper to the app as well. This is part of the reason why there are so many wallpapers to choose from at any one given time. There is a good and a bad side to this. The good is that you are constantly getting new wallpapers to choose from, which is nice. The bad is that there are wallpapers out there that probably no one is using. I hope the app developer is going through and erasing these so that the app doesn’t just get flooded with crappy wallpapers.
Overall, it is a great app to have if you are into changing your wallpaper. I like that it is free and there are some really quality and original wallpapers on the app. Go check it out and find your favorite wallpaper.
