    That was crazy. I was just thinking about changing my iPhone Wallpaper and thought: “let’s check out if there is something on the smashing magazine.” I typed in the url and what did I have to read at the first headline? “100 (Really) Beautiful iPhone Wallpapers”. You guys are just awesome. Allways the right thing at the right time! Thanks!

    I love the designs, but there’s not much point in these wallpapers as you only see them when your screen is active but the phone is locked. Apple certainly went full-of-function over pointless form on their interfaces!

      You can use Cydia Software that come when you unlock phone in that winter board application you can see the wallpaper behind your application

    I think these are really cool. I wish you had cited who all the artists were though. I know you linked to the original compilation sites in the titles, but I would have thought clicking on each image would take to me to the page with the artist’s name.

    Mmm, lots of win here. It’s interesting that the most compelling ones (for me at least) happen to be nature and astronomy related.
