I have to tell you from the start the fact that there are more than 100,000 download counts and that’s an impressive number for a paid wallpaper app. So, I bet that you are wondering what makes this app so special that people are willing to pay in order to get it? Why is it so successful? Well, maybe you remember Justin Maller, the Australian artist who created one high-quality wallpaper every day for a whole year and put it out on the internet for everybody to use with the help of the YouTube technology reviewer MKBHD.
At one point, his project reached to an end and his entire collection was turned into an app known as Facets. As you can imagine, the app does not get any frequent updates. It is only updated once a year to add all the work he does throughout the year, but do think that you need more than that? Facets is not a curated app as the developers don’t simply find cool images and repost them, but all of them are unique.
The last update is the one that I want to tell you more about as long as it come with more than 60 free wallpapers and some premium wallpapers from Justin’s Helmetica series as well. All the wallpapers have been retooled by Justin himself to support smartphone’s screen resolution even if they were previously designed for desktops.
Facets comes with Muzei integration and is available in the play store for no more than $0.99. For such a small amount you get lots (365) of awesome high quality, detailed wallpapers, as you cannot find in any other place. With 365 available wallpapers, you can choose a different one every day!
For that, you must only swipe up (or double tap) on any image when viewing fullscreen to set the wallpaper. Swipe down to see info about the piece and purchase a print. Don’t tell me that I have not convinced you to give it a try! If so, take Facets from here.
