Wally is a Universal app template for wallpapers where users can save them into their photo library and then set them as wallpapers to their devices, they can also submit new wallpapers to the admin of the app for approval. You, as the Admin of the app, will just have to switch a isPending variable into False in the Parse Dashboard or Adminca.com CMS panel to make the submitted wallpapers visible in the app, it’s super easy.
Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side.
Wally is written in Swift language, XCode project, Universal, Parse SDK hosted on back4app, easy to customize, User Guide and PSD files included in the package.
