Parallax Enables Scrolling/Panoramic Wallpapers on Your iPhone [Jailbreak]

Thanks to a new tweak available in the Cydia store called Parallax, you can now enable scrolling/panoramic wallpapers on your jailbroken iPhone.

If you are unaware of what panoramic wallpapers are, they are simply pictures that will scroll as you change pages on your springboard. This is a great feature if you have a wide shot of a family or group or for amazing nature photos.

Unfortunately iPhone 3G/iPod touch G2 (2008) owners are warned to not install this tweak as the developer has said it is fairly memory intensive and could cause those devices to run slower. If you have an iPhone 3GS or an iPhone 4 you can hit up the Cydia store and download Parallax for $1.49.

Check out a video of this tweak in action after the break!

Inaugural Wall Paper for the iPhone

The UI wizards at Gx5 have been a favorite of mine since they saved my old Treo 680 from the Garnet-uglies back in the day. So, when sibling-site leader, TreoCentral's own Jennifer was kind enough to forward us news from Gx5 that they had whipped up some iPhone (and iPod touch) optimized Obama wallpapers just in time for the Inauguration, we figured we'd pass it on to you, our readers, as well.
