This app is no collection of ready to use backgrounds. It's a tool to help you create your own background pictures.
Furthermore this is no click-n-go app. You must invest some time to find the perfect settings!
You can use these background pictures for your lock screen back ground and for your Windows Phone 8.1 start screen background.
WP8.0: lock screen background ONLY!
WP8.1: lock screen background AND start screen background!
Official Windows Phone 8.1 update is expected for summer 2014!
