Best wallpaper apps for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus!

Wallax has long been one of my favorite wallpaper apps and even was one of the first apps to fix the wallpaper layout issue in iOS 7. Since then Wallax has been updated with tons of new features including the ability to make your own custom gradient wallpapers, add all kinds of effects including blur, bokeh, text, patterns, and much more. Wallax handles scaling and resizing for you so you know it'll be the perfect fit regardless what device you're using.

If you like making your own gradient wallpapers, or prefer just tweaking your own images, Wallax is hands down the best option.

You can preview in-app so you get an idea of exactly what your Lock screen will look like before you even save the image.
