Seller's Notes

ABOUT THE SELLER

I'm a qualified and highly experienced Lead UX / Visual Mobile Designer with solid understanding of web and mobile market, UI and technology, with over 16 years experience and more than 400 web projects and native projects designed, working in different countries and industries for first-class companies.

I live and work in Redwood City, California (for the last 3 years) and I work on mobile apps as my day to day job. I love everything to do with mobile design and Wallz was my attempt in 2013 to show the mobile world a different approach to a wallpaper app (good quality design and great user experience).

I designed the app for the user and I mostly ignore the guidelines and paradigms that existed, this made Wallz a unique and refreshing app. Since it’s launch back in 2013 we had at least 5-10 apps copy our logo, name and design to try to steal our users but with no success.

Wallz has evolved and probably I would say a few years away in Interaction and Visual Design compared to a lot of the other wallpapers apps (produced and marketing like mines with no interested in what users see).

 

APP DESCRIPTION

Wallz - is the best app offering HD wallpapers or backgrounds for iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPad and iPad Pro retina. We have worked to improve the app by optimizing and improving the user’s experience in finding and selecting the wallpaper they would feel truly represents their unique personality. We have kept our big and loyal fanbase by ensuring that new wallpapers are added daily. The app currently boasts a huge and varied library of wallpapers available to all of our users. Additionally, we keep the quality of our app not just by the technical updates that we are doing, but also making sure that all wallpapers added are of high-quality and truly amazing.

App Features:

  • New improved search engine will make it easy to find the wallpaper you want.

  • Home and lock screens wallpaper preview added to the app.

  • Google Admob was removed.

  • Optimization improvements were done so you can browse faster our wallpapers.

  • New control bar will help you decide what wallpaper is best for you.

App Highlights:

  • Has been reviewed over 800 times on iOS, ensuring the new buyer that the app is already recognized in the marketplace.

  • It has over 235,000 downloads since Dec 2013 on iOS only

  • High ranking on Android, which ensures that the app will be most likely downloaded by users, hence it has a high chance that its current userbase will expand.

  

REASON FOR SALE

I would have loved to keep this app in my portfolio as it is a stable passive income, however I’m investing in a new set of opportunities and unfortunately I won’t have time to spare anymore for Wallz.

 

DEVELOPMENT

Wallz iOS, Wallz Plus, Cars Wallz are developed in Objective C in native code (Xcode source files will be provided)

Wallz Android and Wallz Plus are developed in Android Studio in native Java(source files will be included)

The web api is developed in a combination of PHP and JSON (inside the wordpress backend)

The Wallpapers come from a wordpress site that is easily updated and controlled.

 

OPERATION

The app is pretty much self sufficient and runs itself. The only work it will need to keep it running is to add Wallpapers, this can take a few hours a week to add a few hundred wallpapers. There’s absolutely no marketing cost towards the app, its ranking goes up and down based on trends and the market itself.

  

MONETIZATION

The app’s main source of revenue comes from advertisements from Admob. Recently (last 2 months), we have tried using applovin as well.

Financial Highlights:

$2330 from iOS in-app purchases only

Income over time : $2066 on Charboost (we have been trying apploving for the last 2 months)

AppLovin - $109

App Store In App Purchases over time revenue

2014: $458

2015: $603

2016: $429

 

MARKETING

We haven’t done any marketing for this app, we just used good ASO (App store optimization). Because of our efforts the android version of this app reached #3 and #2 for 1080p wallpapers and 1080 wallpaper in just a matter of weeks. Unfortunately the app was taken off the play store for a few weeks for bug fixes.

Yes, 1 week.

 

FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES

Wallz is a great app from what we saw our users say, the best avenue is to add in app purchases on android and keep adding to the homepage in app purchases, these will insure more income from the in app purchases. Advertising banners can also be added to every screen (we didn’t want to promote that look with the app).

A better search engine will drive more traffic through for sure, and the back end for building a more intelligent search exists and can be easily accessed via wordpress.

The app itself given a little investment will overtake any existing similar apps due to it’s design and optimization.

Live Wallpapers will probably give you a boost, I just tried to keep the app running fast and responsive (live wallpapers might slow it down).

  

SELLER’S NOTE

We have attached documents showing the app’s rankings and proof of income.

Apps included in this auction (all apps work for both phone and Tablet and are specially coded to look good on both platforms)

All the wallpapers we use are either photographed and designed specifically for the phone sizes or they are designed based off royalty free images, we have worked with apple and google stores closely to have the safest content.

Wallz will come with royalty free images, the images/wallpapers shot by will give come with the right to use in Wallz and any other apps that are included in this transaction(for free).

Thanks,
ioan

Just to add a bit more information the development costs in time for both iOS and Android combined are just over $8k the design was done and maintained by myself to keep the app with mostly 5 star feedbacks as it is.

The Adobe Creative integration can be kept it for free after the sale is completed.

I have worked hard to make a great app and kept it at the highest standard and that's why the price is higher then other apps that are a few months old.

Hey, is the backend in php?
Some screenshots of content management tool would be great.

hey bazimogmbh and thanks for the question, the app is controlled by a wordpress, so all the categories and posts are brought in through a custom JSON api to the app, we also have done image resizing in the home and categories views for faster load times, we also have the website linked to a maxcdn account if you would like to use a cdn provider (at our traffic the costs would range between 100-120$ a month to use a cdn)

The $60 listed above is only for hosting the wordpress websites, Wallz iOS and Android use the same database.

We just release a new update for Wallz on iOS with Firebase integration (push and analyitics) and through push campaigns traffic has gone up about 20% in the last week.

I am here for any other questions

thanks,
ioan

Hey @F_A_H_D Carz has been removed from the app store because he didn't have time for this as for the images they are being cut and specifically source by my cofounder, this resource will not come with Wallz it will be up to you to take over, the good think we have so many amazing images it's easy to understand our vision for the wallpapers.

For the buyer we will have a few conversations about this and I will make sure that my vision for Wallz is explained and cultivated for future.

I hope this explains your questions F_A_H_D (thanks for your review on the app store as well)

@F_A_H_D He get featured by Apple, last time we where featured in South Korea and shared on one of the biggest Facebook groups there...that pushed us to no.2 in Entertainment, previous we where featured in France and other countries.

I make sure the ASO is as good as possible without risking anything, android for example is growing to rank in top 5 keywords in a matter a few weeks.

As you probably saw on the app store, we have a video that we created and made sure that we have the app store metadata as any huge apps out there.

Thanks,
ioan

@Savag77 hey so the proof of income from ITC(itunesconnect) is one income source, admob is another, I have added the admob proof, now the profit is all that - hosting (60$ digitalocean for me)

Not sure what isn't making sense, for admob there is small revenue coming from the android app as well as the iOS app.

let me know if you are clear on this,

thanks,

by the way the wallpapers are automatically recycled on the new tab based on algorithms we have, so there's no need for any wallpapers, thus this app is pretty low maintenance
