Download Over A Million Wallbase HD Wallpapers On Windows 8

Wallbase houses one of the largest wallpapers repository on the internet. With over a million HD images, you’re bound to be spoiled for choice. I usually stick to DeviantART for most of my wallpaper needs, but Wallbase is always my next stop. Along with a strong web presence, the service also supports mobile platforms in the form of iOS and Android apps. As Windows 8 user base is steadily grwing, an official Modern UI app for the platform is quite likely in the pipeline. However, if you can’t hold your horses until an official app is released, try Wallbase 8. Sporting an elegant and minimalistic design, the app brings you a wide variety of gorgeous-looking high quality backgrounds from Wallbase, ready to be used as your desktop wallpaper or lock screen image.

Wallbase 8 has a lot up its sleeve apart from its elegant interface. You can quickly choose among a multitude of popular tags to instantly download your desired images. In addition, most frequently used tags are further highlighted in bigger and bolder text, like minimalistic, video games, funny, abstract, fantasy art, redheads, animals, landscapes, cars, anime, artwork etc. This can help you with discovering wallpapers belonging to the most popular genres.

Wallbase 8 does away with the traditional heritage of categorizing the wallpapers as you’d normally see on other similar services or apps, instead opting for a tag system to group the wallpapers. That means these tags are basically the only way to find your desired image. To look for images with any tag, you can always use the search bar. Simply type in the tag name and press Enter.

Search results are displayed as gorgeous tile arrangements. Windows 8 users can simply use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll the thumbnails horizontally. Likewise, RT users can employ swipe gestures to perform the aforementioned task.

Clicking or tapping a thumbnail loads the wallpaper in full screen view. From here, you can right-click or swipe-up to bring the App bar that allows you to set the current image as lock screen picture or save it to your local storage. However, it would have been nice if the app also allowed setting the image as desktop background directly from within the Metro environment.

Wallbase 8 also takes advantage of Windows 8 sharing capabilities to send the image to other Modern UI apps such as the Mail app. You can also tweet the link via a third-party Twitter client such as Rowi, as demonstrated in the screenshot below.

Wallbase 8 is available for free at Windows Store and works on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. Testing was carried out on Windows 8, 64-bit.
