New layout looks good but lost core functionality. I used the feature all the time where you could hold down on the "set" button to choose an app to set the wallpaper with. That's gone now, and the new "set with" button doesn't even let you choose which app to set it with either. Add that functionality back and you're golden.

The download counts are highly inaccurate. Even if I long press to preview the wall paper, the app treats it as a download and updates the count. This is somewhat misleading. Additionally, there is no option to shuffle/randomize wallpapers as you are forced to stick to the layout and browse based on categories. This is somewhat tedious. Overall, fairly decent selection of wallpapers.

There's no way to actually preview a full background image in this app. It shows you the top half, with the bottom half obscured by the user interface. Your only option is to save the file and preview it from another app, or just set it as your wallpaper and hope you like the entire image. This seems like a fundamental oversight in such a basic, single-purpose app.
