How do I install the wallpapers on my device?
The easiest way is to visit the site using your iPhone or iPad. Find the wallpaper you want and tap on the download link for your device. The image will open in a new window - wait for it to load and then tap and hold. Select 'Save image' from the list. Next go to Settings > Brightness & Wallpaper. Select Lock or Home Screen and look under Camera Roll to find the image you just downloaded. If you need detailed instructions, follow this link.
Why don't you have any wallpapers for Android devices?
We use iPhone and iPad, so we try to focus on what we know best. The wallpapers are optimized for iOS screen sizes but many people download and use them on Android devices too.
I'm not sure what screen size/resolution my device has.
Here's a quick guide:
  • iPhone 1st gen: 320 x 480
  • iPhone 3G, 3GS: 320 x 480
  • iPhone 4, 4S: 640 x 960
  • iPhone 5, 5C, 5S: 640 x 1136
  • iPad 1st gen: 1024 x 1024
  • iPad 2: 1024 x 1024
  • iPad 3rd gen, 4th gen: 2048 x 2048
  • iPad Air: 2048 x 2048
  • iPad Mini 1st gen: 1024 x 1024
  • iPad Mini 2nd gen: 2048 x 2048
  • iPod Touch 1st, 2nd, 3rd gen: 320 x 480
  • iPod Touch 4th gen: 640 x 960
  • iPod Touch 5th gen: 640 x 1136
Why do the wallpapers get zoomed in and cropped when I try to set them?
With iOS 7 Apple introduced parallax effects. In order to achieve this effect the wallpaper needs to fit outside the iPad/iPhone screen so the system enlarges the artwork. To prevent this, head over to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion and turn it ON. When you do this, iOS 7 does not produce a parallax effect, which prevents it from automatically zooming in the wallpaper when it’s set.
