If only it worked...

Seems like a good source for photos. Problem is it constantly crashes. And when it seems to be working, it still does not change my lock screen. Just leaves me with a template saying to check my settings.

Great photos

The wide variety of pictures adds a element of fun to just looking at your phone!

Top app. Refreshes your day with a new lock screen and this is amazingly positive for me. I will not change this app. Note : Please make an option for only portrait/landscape pics due to low resolution crops that get stretched to fit the phone.

Very good wallpaper app. Seems like 8.1 update broke it though. The only way I've managed to have the app auto change the lock screen is by adding a ONLY a local photo album, not online source :'( Edit: Problem with updating the app continues with online source either disabled or enabled. Unfortunately seems broken until the next update
