Monogram It - Monogram Wallpaper Backgrounds Maker is a free wallpaper utility for Android. An asterisk should actually follow the word free as no feature in this app is actually free. Over one thousand one-star reviews on the Google Play Store should tell you all you need to know about how good this app is.
If you’re looking for wallpaper utilities that work as intended, try Canva. Not only will you not have to pay for basic features, but you’ll also have myriad options in terms of broader graphic design to choose from. If you’re looking for a dedicated wallpaper utility with decent variety, try MASA - Cool Wallpapers.
Pay to play
This is, unfortunately, the primary mechanic employed in this app. Monogram It doesn’t just charge for extra features or the ability to create extra wallpapers; it charges for every single button. Every interaction you may want to perform carries a charge of real currency. Many users also complain that even the backgrounds are premium content and far too expensive.
You will get a few free shapes to use, but you’ll have to post a review to Google Play Store to claim it. Another major concern is that the app gives you a tour of how to use all the premium features before informing you that they’re premium.
Another unfortunate feature of Monogram It is that it is far too heavy-handed with ads. Expect to see ads regularly as you try and navigate the app in your search for the ‘free’ content you were promised.
Good idea, poorly executed
The idea behind Monogram It is to give users a way to generate their own, personalised, monogrammed backgrounds for their various devices. While the idea is a brilliant one, it has been poorly executed by the developers. Instead of charging users a small fee to download the app, they’ve rendered it largely useless with microtransactions and in-app purchases.
None of the necessary features are provided free of charge, and thus, the average user who isn’t willing to pay for something they can generate for free on an app like Canva has no use for this app.
