I've used Backgrounds HD for several years now and I used to really enjoy the app; however, it has taken a significant turn for the worse. My main frustration with the more recent version(s) of the app is this weird new issue I'm having (perhaps a bug). Because of this issue or bug, no matter which wallpaper I choose, the app eventually just automatically reverts to one of 3 or 4 beach wallpapers. I've gone into the app's settings and have tried to see if there is any setting in there that would correct this behavior, but to no avail. I just can't seem to find what the cause of this is! And, it doesn't matter if I choose a new wallpaper from within the Backgrounds HD app or if I select an image from the photo gallery on my phone, no matter what I do, my phone still eventually reverts back to these 3 or 4 random beach images. I've even tried clearing the app's cache but that doesn't help. It's extremely frustrating! This became so annoying, that I've recently uninstalled the app from my phone! What is the point of having a wallpaper app if it has a mind of its own and reverts back to the same 3 wallpapers of its own choosing? It would be nice if this app had a setting that allowed the user to automatically change their wallpaper based on a selected time interval (such as every 1 hour, 3 hours, day, etc.). But, the user should be allowed to decide which wallpaper is chosen; perhaps one from one of the user's selected groups or favorites. Sadly though, I don't see any setting like this. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see it. It's really a shame that I had to remove this app as there are so many beautiful wallpapers to be found via the app's community! Hopefully your experience is better than mine.

I've used this app for a long time and really loved the backgrounds. However since you radically changed the user interface and now use tags instead of categories I'm finding it confusing and difficult to navigate and view images. Tags aren't helpful unless I already know exactly what I want. With categories I could browse a general concept and be pleasantly surprised with everything related to that topic. Now it's a disappointing experience.

I do not like the new app update at all...it asks if I want to add each picture to my saved groups. . .pain in the a**! It should be asked once at the beginning...when first signing on to the app...not each individual picture. Very annoying, & I've had to uninstall it b/c of this. It's unfortunate, b/c I've had it on several phones, & I like the pictures. Horrible idea, folks! 👎
