A few weeks ago I reviewed an app lock called Fingerprint App Lock. After a discussion with the developer, he brought up another app they recently released called Walli Arty & Cool Wallpapers. Naturally, since I was impressed with Fingerprint App Lock, it was obvious I should check out this wallpaper app. Who doesn’t like a good wallpaper app?

Developer: Shanga
Cost: Free with ads

Review

Walli7There are a crazy amount of wallpaper apps out there in the Play Store. Just search wallpaper, and you will see. That’s why it’s important to make sure worthy apps are seen, or they get lost in the sea of similar apps. Walli falls into that category, a worthy app that could get overlooked.

Walli doesn’t do the normal material wallpaper and landscape pictures that are popular today. The developers have hand selected and built a community of talented artists from around the world to ensure it has the most unique wallpapers.

You have three tabs to choose from: Featured, Popular, and Recent. I could explain all the categories, but let’s be honest, you know what they all mean so I’ll just skip past it. Once you find a wallpaper you like, you have two options – download or set as wallpaper. Walli will help you with the resolution that best fits your device.

There is also the option to click the creator’s name and browse their profile for more of their art if you’d like. You may also favorite any of the ones you like by clicking the heart button. Under your own profile, you can find all the wallpapers you liked and downloaded for later reference.

If by chance you can’t find what you’re looking for, there is a search feature available that will help you more specific art. I would like to see another tab added titled Categories and have them broken down. When searching, it’s sometimes hard to know what you’re looking for, so seeing categories to select from would be nice.Walli10

Walli does something I think is amazing. Instead of users just uploading their works and
getting credit, they instead get to share in a percentage of the revenue they earn from the ads shown after downloading wallpapers. Walli also gives everyone who downloads the app to submit an application if you want to try. Submitting doesn’t mean you get in; however, I think is an amazing program and only encourages the user content creation. It’s a triple win for the artists, the end users, and the developers.

 

 

Summary

Walli is hands down one of the best wallpaper apps in the market. I really believe they will grow and catch fire and will be vastly rewarded with the model they are using. It’s worth the download, so check them out.
