Why does Unsplash not have an iOS app

Unsplash app for iOS: Royalty-free images and CC0 photos for iPhone and iPad

Chapter in this post:

In a post about sources for royalty-free images and CC0 photos, I introduced you to the Unsplash platform in addition to Pixabay and Pexels a year ago. Since the beginning of April 2018 there has also been an app for iOS on the Apple iPhone and iPad. The free application brings you free photos and image files on the mobile device - usable as a private background image, photo in a blog post written on a mobile device or for other purposes. I have summarized information about the Unsplash app below.

Unsplash app for iOS on iPhone and iPad

Unsplash now also offers you license-free photos via the iOS app for the iPhone and iPad, which you can use for anything you want. There are no watermarks, lettering or logos on the pictures - and you do not have to specify the source of supply or the photographer for public use (on your website, in print materials, etc.). According to the description in the App Store and iTunes, over 450,000 high-resolution images are currently available for selection in the archive.

Rights-free graphics in the photo archive

On the iPad you can use the drag & drop function to save photos from the application on the tablet or to insert them as graphics directly into a document or project. But the download on the iPad is also very easy and ensures that the selected images are saved directly in your photo archive. So they can be used quickly and easily. Whether blog entry, presentation, social media affairs or any other use - in the app you get the right thing for pretty much every topic.

Teething problems and reviews

The ratings of the Unsplash app for mobile Apple devices with iOS 11 or higher are currently still mixed. In addition to several 5-star reviews, there are a few with 4 stars and some with only one star (as of April 11, 2018). Apparently there are still teething troubles and bugs, but they will certainly be fixed in the future so that you can download license-free or rights-free images, photos and graphics without any problems on the go. By the way: In addition to the above-mentioned article on various sources for photos, here in the blog there is also a guide on how to obtain free art from the museum! Have fun with it and with your illustrated project;)
