    Default Animated wallpaper
    Hi all

    Just a quick one. Does anyone know if you can put animated wallpaper on your iPhone. I don't mean video wall paper. I know that some phones use .gif but bot sure if the iPhone does this or something similar. If anyone could point me in the right direction please

    Thanks

    I'm also keen to know this. I've saw a few people with animated backgrounds and always wonder how it's done!

    Its called vWallpaper and be downloaded by adding this repo:
    http://i.danstaface.net/deb/

    Once you download it open the app and download a video wallpaper and set it as your background. Your wallpaper is now a animated wallpaper instead of a static wallpaper.
    It does cause battery drain and might slow down your device but I haven't experienced anything, even DinoD7 uses it and made a video about it

    I have used vWallpaper but it does not work with my current theme (G.O.C. PRO)

    Its a good app for animated wallpapers.
    Like Turismo said it does drain more power from your battery but on my iPhone4 i dont notice it slowing down my device, maybe its because the i4 has more ram than the 3G[S]

    I've tried using .gif images as wallpapers & they dont seem to work properly if at all.
