iOS 7 brought many improvements in the user experience, one of which is the dynamic 3D background with a parallax effect. This is a cool visual experience in iOS 7, but for iOS 6 users, they have to install some jailbreak tweaks to get this parallax effect, we have introduced deepEnd and Livepapers tweaks, by installing them, you can get a dynamic background effect in the jailbroken device. But the effect is not very satisfactory, and is not smooth compared with iOS 7 Parallax Wallpapers.
To get a more satisfactory parallax effect, we can install a Winterboard theme called “iOS 7 Accelerometer Slideshow Lockscreens” from Modmyi Repo. Which has over 100 different wallpapers, parallax effect, and 5 different wallpaper packs — for only $1.29.
Pack of iOS 7 style Slideshow Lockscreens, offers 5 differently themed versions for iPhone 5 and iPhone 4/4S. Each LS has 20 beautiful wallpapers which move around by tilting device back and forth accessing the Accelerometer creating a parallex type effect.
