Parallax Brings Panoramic Wallpapers To The iPhone | Cydia Store

A new tweak available in the Cydia Store, Parallax, allows you to set a panoramic wallpaper as background on your iPhone Springboard and enjoy all the details of the wallpaper scrolling behind your icons.

All you have to do is upload on your iPhone some widescreen wallpapers (the ones that iOS would usually “cut” to fit the smaller screen of the iPhone) and select the auto scroll speed (or manual adjustment) in the tweak’s preferences inside the Settings app.

As you can see in the video below, the tweak seems pretty stable and fast. Installation on older 3G devices, however, isn’t recommended. Parallax is available at $1.49 under BigBoss repository.
