A Kuvva is a wallpaper for your Mac or iPhone. Kuvva images are curated from a selection of international artists.
Kuvva features a new artist every week. You can set how frequently you change the image on your desktop by selecting preferences from the Kuvva menu in the Mac app.
You can select the featured artist of the week, popular artists, or you can select your own favorites when you sign up for a Kuvva account.
We're always interested in hearing from you. To send us a message, email us at email@example.com. Thanks in advance!
While Kuvva works 99% of the time, every once in a while bugs sneak into our programming. If you notice an issue, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @kuvva. We'll get to the issue right away. Please be as descriptive as possible when contacting us, mentioning in your email or tweet your computer type, operating system, and adding screenshots if possible.

The iPhone app does not change wallpapers automatically like the desktop version. This is due to limited access to the iOS, which makes automated changes impossible.
You need to give Kuvva access to your iPhone to download images to your camera roll. To do so, go to the iPhone iOS 'Settings' and select 'Privacy' > 'Photos'. There you will find the Kuvva icon. Slide the app to 'On' to give Kuvva access to your Camera Roll.
As people move away from using the Twitter website and begin using third party Twitter applications, we've decided to stop developing Twitter backgrounds. For now. Those of you who already have the Twitter background app will still be able to view your Kuvva wallpapers.
Although we used to support Kuvva for Windows, this is no longer the case. We still offer a Windows download, but can not offer support for bugs.
