I first went on the website which I have found through a blog, and the wallpapers were amazing. They are mainly illustrations made with shapes in a very unique way. The app allows you to live stream wallpapers on your desktop, then you decide if you want them to swap every 30mn, 1H... The reason why you should get this app is not really the technicality or features of this app, but simply because it can be a great source of inspiration for future work.
