(Update) The developer has since patched the app to fix the problems. Review has been updated to reflect this.

- Puzzle game for added fun
- Has potential if it works
Wallhub – Tempting Wallpapers is useful for finding a new look for you phone or tablet. Despite some issues initially, the app has since been fixed and is now functioning correctly.
Wallhub has a nice pseudo-Material design to it, that makes for an attractive interface, and a nifty animation for opening the menu. Beyond that, it is essentially just a grid of photos sorted into a few categories with a tag and search function. Pretty standard fare.
The images on offer are decent, if a bit limited in scope. Many of the pictures featured have a bit of a geeky flavor, with a lot of anime and gaming inspired art, along with some more diverse content. They have a good number of quality high-resolution photos, and a simple method of delivering them to your device. It can automatically set your wallpaper, download the image, or share it to another app or contact.
Wallhub features a search function, as well as a filter system to sort by resolution size, so you can find the image you want in the size you want, which is handy.
The app also includes a puzzle game, which is a nice touch to make the app have some character. You assemble a puzzle based off of a randomly selected wallpaper image. I do wish it was more prominently displayed, as its hidden in the menus.
There isn’t much else to say about Wallhub. When I initially reviewed the app, it was in an unusable state. It is now functioning fine but is still a rather average wallpaper app. The premium price is still too steep for what the app offers, and the free version does enough to make it unnecessary. It does some things well, and has a nice added puzzle game for some flavor, but there are certainly better options out there for wallpapers.
