You'll be pleased to know that this app is optimized for all devices, including the iPhone 6 Plus, and is also fully compatible with iOS 8 so you can get the most out of this app after purchasing it just once.

There are plenty of ways to creating a cool retro or vintage-style wallpaper for your iPhone or iPad using this app, ranging from choosing one of the royalty-free backgrounds to grabbing your own image from the camera roll.

Further to the backgrounds, you also have badges that will add the retro touch, while other decorations can add the finishing touches to the look you're after. All three elements: the background, badge, and decorations are taken from your camera roll or from your Dropbox account. I really loved the elements provided within the app; one can tell they were created by professional graphic designers!

Editing Tools and Text

Once you've got all the elements of your wallpaper in place, you can use the advanced layer-editing tools to fine-tune the image. Working in layers will really let you explore a variety of looks as you lock or unlock layers, flip them, and duplicate them.

You may also add text to your wallpaper using the font templates provided to go with the vintage look and feel. Furthermore, you can even adjust the spacing and "arc" of the font to make it fit into the space you're using for the text.

What I love about this app is that it not only allows you to save the completed work as your wallpaper, but it also allows you to share your work via Facebook, Twitter, and Intagram. This means users will be able to not only make custom wallpapers for themselves, but also make them for friends and family.
