    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 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!
