Wallpaper. In the old days it was used to cover walls. It is composed of strips of paper that are pasted on the wall of a room to give a textured or decorative effect. Aren’t wallpapers great? They give colour, design and art to a blank and dull flat surface. They give life to a dull room. They are not just mere trash that is pasted to the wall but are also considered an art form.
Through the years, the use of wallpaper has been transferred to technological objects such as the computer desktop and mobile phones. Digital wallpapers are now downloadable from different internet web sites, each fit for a certain size or space. You can set your own photo as wallpaper to your personal computer or a picture of someone special to your cell phone. Overall, wallpapers are a great way to give colour to blank spaces.
Smart phones nowadays, with the use of modern technology, have come up with many great ideas to bring wallpapers to a whole new level. With Android mobile devices, you can choose default wallpaper that slightly shifts to the left or to the right as you slide through the parts of your wall. The image moves as you slide from one part of the wallpaper to the other.
IPhone on the contrary has been known to have lock screen and home screen that can be set separately but the wallpapers are still and does not move in any way.
With the new iOS 7 that Apple has released, panoramic wallpapers are now possible with iPhones, iPads, iPod touch or any Apple mobile gadgets.
These wallpapers can be set separately for the lock screen and home screen, but if you want, you can have the same for both screens. With this new hidden feature of the iOS 7, you have more chance to be creative.
Setting panoramic wallpaper is very easy. Since the whole concept of iOS 7 is simplicity, setting anything that you want for your mobile phones will never be hard for anyone even for first-time users. All you have to do is to first open the Settings of your phones, then you have to select Brightness & Wallpaper, after that select the ‘choose wallpaper button’, and then after you have gone through Photos, you should choose Panoramas, pick the image of your choice then after that you can set that panoramic photo either as your lock screen or home screen, you can also pick one panoramic photo both for lock screen and home screen. It’s just that easy. No need for special tutorials or anything for you to be able to use this very awesome feature. And with the new iSight camera available, you can now take very good and high quality panoramic photos or you can just simply download from the internet.
The panoramic wallpaper was designed using the phone’s motion sensors which are the gyroscope and the accelerometer that makes it possible for the mobile phone to follow your every movement and moves accordingly. These motion sensors works together to know which direction you move so that it will go the same way. This feature gives you a full 240-degree effect that you will surely enjoy seeing. This feature may seem similar with the Android wallpaper wherein the wallpaper moves as you slide to the next part of your screen but it is completely different since it follows your movements from left to right and back again. It’s like really looking into a view from one side to the other. The new panoramic wallpaper by Apple is yet another astonishing feature offered to every one of us.
