Resplash Wallpapers

If you have previously visited Unsplash, you would know that it features some beautiful imagery, and some of them make for perfect wallpapers.

Resplash does this exactly and offers wallpapers segregated into various collections like Textures, Lighting, Abstract, Water, and more.

Backdrops has become an all-time classic now and continues to offer some of the best wallpapers for free. You can download wallpapers from the Community section, but you can only apply wallpapers directly if you are choosing one from the Explore tab, as it contains original wallpapers that are exclusive to the app. However, you can bypass this limitation if you buy the Pro version of the app.

Google Wallpapers

Yes, Google does have an official wallpaper app, and it does have some of the best wallpapers you can get for free. You can choose from collections like textures, landscapes, Google Arts and Culture. Plus, as an added bonus, there are no pesky ads to trouble you either.


If you have been a fan of wallpapers offered with the earlier OnePlus devices, you can certainly check out Hampus Ollson’s work, who happens to be the creator behind them. The app also offers some of his other work, which is mostly abstract wallpapers. There are paid wallpapers, but the free collection is pleasing as well.
