vWallpaper (video wallpaper application) and SkrewCommom for Firmware 3.0

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

vWallpaper Some of you might remember the app vWallpaper, an application that enables video wallpapers. I honestly haven’t written about the app is quite some time however, people are wondering if it has been updated for the 3.0 firmware yet. A few days ago, the developer released a beta version of both SkrewCommon (a code app that is needed in order to run vWallpaper) and vWallpaper. It is a manually install and there are a few bugs still such as; the device will not go into sleep mode and sometimes the video wallpaper will not restart after closing an application. If you would like to give it a try, check out THIS post for the links and instructions.

Skrew Common and vWallpaper/vRingtones

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

VWallpaper Well, it seems that while I was traveling, we finally got one of the apps that many of you have been waiting for…vWallpaper/vRingtones. I gave the app a try and it seems to work great! One new feature in the vWallpaper section is that you can now add a picture mask to your wallpaper. The video wallpaper will then show behind the picture mask. Another feature that I really like is the ability to preview the wallpapers and picture masks before setting them. The only thing it needs now is the ablity to view a vWallpaper before you download it. That would be nice!

The vRingtones part of the application works well too. For some reason these apps seem to run a lot smoother now. When I had them on version 1.1.4 and below they were always a little sketchy but, they seem to work great on firmware 2.0 and above.

vWallpaper 0.93 & SkrewCommon 1.49

vWallpaper The update to SkrewCommon and vWallpaper gives vWallpaper some nice new features. When you select Video Ringtones you will notice that the Select Video option has been changed to Select Global Video and that there is a new Manage Contacts feature. The Select Global Video option still allows you to choose one video ringtone for all incoming calls. A cool new feature is the Manage Contacts feature which allows you to select video ringtones for specific contacts! When you select Manage Contacts, you will get a list of your contacts. You can then choose a contact and it will bring up the list of videos you have downloaded. Just select the video you would like as that contact’s ringtone. You will then be brought back to the contact list. The contact’s with video ringtones assigned to them will have a delete icon next to them. To delete a video ringtone, tap the icon and then select Delete. It will only delete the video ringtone and not the actual contact. [Read more…]

SkrewCommon The update to version 1.46 of SkrewCommon affects quite a few application in the Skrew source.

vWallpaper 0.9

vWallpaper The updated to version 0.9 of vWallpaper adds a new option to the Settings menu: Videos repository. This gives you the ability to add a repository to the applications. It automatically comes with the Skrew video repository however, it does have the ability to add your own source to the list. Just use the + button in the upper right corner.

Apple iPhone School has created a repo that you can add to vWallpapers that will contain all the vwallpapers from vWallpapers.com. Right now, the repo has three wallpapers in it; Green Tunnel, Mario Brothers and Red and Blue Clouds (see videos below). The files are titled AIS_file name, that way you are able to easily distinguish between our vWallpapers and other vWallpapers. We will be adding quite a few more in the near future. The repo url is – www.appleiphoneschool.com/vwallpapers.plist

Note: This is not an installer repo, this repo will only work in the vWallpapers application. Do not try to add it as a source in Installer!

New vWallpapers

vWallpaper There are a few new vWallpapers up on vWallpapers.com. Two of which are mine and Doug’s favorites! I really like bluelines1 by areppa.com. I love how it moves around each icon!! Sooo sweet. And Doug totally loves the Mario vWallpaper. It is so funny, every fives minutes he is like, Look At This!, and shows me the Mario video wallpaper!!! It is only cool like the first 100 times you see it! Unless you are addicted to it like Doug! :)

Click HERE for info about the vWallpaper app.


Note: The Mario vWallpaper wouldn’t upload correctly so we had to use YouTube. The preview is stretched but the original file is the correct resolution so it will look normal when you add it to your iPhone.
