Unsplash, if you don’t know is an awesome free stock photos site. Find a photo you like and use it for anything you’d like. It’s a great resource for designers, developers, startups, and anyone that needs a nice photo.

They launched their official API last week and I decided to build a wrapper library for Android.

You could potentially use it to build:

  • A cover photo picker for your social app
  • A new wallpaper app
  • An app to put yourself seamlessly into Unsplash photos (please build)

You can check it out at https://github.com/KeenenCharles/AndroidUnplash

There’s still some work to be done to improve the library further so don’t hesitate to contribute.

Update: Check out my new Unsplash image picker library, SplashPicker.
