Justin Maller’s Facets Wallpapers Redone for Mobile, Available Now Through Android App

Over the last year, a lot of us discovered Justin Maller, the Aussie artist who put out a high-quality wallpaper everyday for 365 days last year. Although his Facets wallpaper project concluded last year, the imagery lives on, and has now been retouched to look best on mobile. These wallpapers have become commonly chosen by members of the tech community, so it’s safe to say that if there is one thing lacking from this app, it’s probably not the quality of the art.

The images, as previously mentioned, have been retooled by Maller himself to make up for the fact that the originals were designed for desktops.

Wallpapers are organized by date of creation and the properties of an image, just in case there is that one you have to rock on your device. To apply an image, all you have to do is view it in full screen and then swipe upward. Swiping down will show you information about the picture, as well as let you purchase prints from the artist.

The app is $0.99 without any in-app purchases. If you are a fan of the artist’s desktop wallpapers, this companion app is a must have.

    Awesome wallpapers. Totem the dragon poster would be awesome

  • mechaphil

    The only thing I’d like to see added to this is an auto-cycle function (with options for sequential or random) set to kick in at midnight local time

  • Mauricio Sanchez

    Love it. Just wish the complexity of some of the wallpapers didn’t make the icons in the foreground look so invisible. Haha, Muzei has spoiled me. Either way, it’s a keeper!

  • Scott Capodice

    Does this have an option to auto update the background hourly? Daily? Etc?

    • Walter Partlo

      I didn’t see that option.

  • Nayners

    Facets link is broken.

    Uhhhh… just downloaded it and it looks like you swipe up to save the image as a wallpaper, but when I do that the image becomes extremely low res and lousy looking… what am I doing wrong?

    • Just a glitchy first build, I bet. Hold tight!

      • deadpenguins

        Yes, I reported it to the developer and explained my situation. He said that they are aware of the issue and that the app is not properly handling all of the different types of devices. I will be patient. 🙂

          I have the same problem using the current version on my Samsung Galaxy S4. The images look like they get cropped and then resized again.

          A quite good workaround is to use the free Muzei app and then use Facets as the source for the images.

            I just repurchased this to try out your suggestion. Not only does facets crash when I try to access it with muzei, but I can’t refund my purchase even though it’s only been a minute. Grumble… guess I’ll wait for a fix.

    Justin Maller’s art is amazing! Especially for wallpapers. Already have the daft punk one for my wallpaper for a couple of weeks now.

      You must be a lady gaga fan who thinks throwing up on yourself is art.

      • IrishSid

        u wot

      • narratorishomo

        you must be a comedic genius who thinks he’s funny.

  • Tremendous artist definitely worthy of a 99 cent donation!
