Wallpapers of the week: AR7 graphic, app, and theme

By , Jan 26, 2014

AR7 app splash

We come around to another week, celebrating with the Wallpaper of the Week section. Before digging around for new walls, it is important to point out, there were loads of new tweaks released last week for your jailbroken iPhone. Stylistic tweaks are always complimented by the correct wallpaper and we aim to please.

If many of you follow the section regularly, it is no surprise today is a feature of Italian graphic artist AR7. Several of his wallpapers were included in previous posts and he is well known in the community as one of the best wallpaper creators on the net. Take a look inside for a small wallpaper pack, his new app, and a jailbreak theme…

The goods

AR7 switched over to parallax wallpapers immediately after Apple announced the new resolutions. Consequently, he is a steady source of correctly sized wallpapers, which is still difficult to find. His new self titled app “AR7″ includes almost his entire, and growing, library. The app hosts images for 3.5″ screens, 4″ screens, and parallax ready options. The app is free, supported by iAds, and the preferred location to download AR7′s handy work right from your device.

In the app, you will find a wide variety of wallpapers genres. From iOS 7 blurry wallpapers, to abstract and realism, below is a quick collection of different wallpaper types found within the app.

In addition to the new AR7 app, Agostino produced a theme for iPhone, termed “Style HD for iOS 7″ and can be found on Cydia’s ZodTTD repo. The theme utilizes customized round icons as the main visual stimulant and modifies some of the UI. The theme will set you back $1.99, but the detailed icons are flat, redesigned, and match iOS 7 very well.

To keep up with AR7, follow him on Twitter @AR72014 or track his Deviant Art gallery. Unfortunately, it appears he terminated his tumblr account after launching the app.

Downloading

To download the featured wallpapers, tap each for a full resolution, parallax ready, image. Once loaded, tap hold, then save to the Camera Roll. Setting them as wallpaper can be done through the Photos.app or Settings.app. From a desktop computer, click each preview image and save the full resolution to an iTunes sync folder.

Downloading the Style HD for iOS 7 theme must be done through Cydia. Tap the search tab and input “Style HD” in the bar. Verify the theme is produced by AR7 in the package details. For a detailed purchasing tutorial, view Jeff’s walk through demonstration.

What do you guys think about the AR7 app?

    How about a theme(s) of the week in addition to wallpaper of the week?

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      I don’t think there’s enough quality themes released each week to constitute a ‘Themes of the Week’ section…

      • Manjot Singh

      • Elias Chao

        Themes a year?

      • Manjot Singh

        year is too long

      • Tom

        I think that was saracsm.

      • Jennifer Lester

        In reality you have no idea how much effort the designer put into the theme.

      • ApexHD

        Themes of the Century? Millennium? Zillennium!?

    • Captain Canada

      Not that it relates to jailbreaking but I wish Apple would release a dark iOS theme. I don’t know about anyone else but I personally set my home button triple click to invert colours. A choice between a dark and light theme seems Apple-esque enough and 3rd party devs would follow. I guess a guy can dream, I love the inverted colour look expect in app that show pictures like FB, Insta and browsers as well as the apps that are already dark themed.

      • Question

        A dev is making a tweak called Eclipse… Which does that.

      • Diego

        Perfect for the dark colored I devices , when is it out ?

      • NaSty

      where is idownloadblog app available???

    • Alpay Barz Ozalper

      Hey what theme is that ?

  • hideousbeing

    This theme is not $2 worth… Themes like this makes me think they just want the money.

    • John

      Wow. Let’s see you work on something for hours and not get paid for it. You telling me that people don’t deserve to be paid for things they work on?

      • hideousbeing

        There is no effort in the design of the icons. There are themes more elaborated and free, or worth the paying.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        That entire comment is of course stating your opinion. In reality you have no idea how much effort the designer put into the theme. You may not like it but that does not mean that everyone dislikes it nor does it mean that everyone is not willing to pay two dollars for it…

      • hideousbeing

        well… you are right. I am sometimes too impulsive. I apologize if i offended anyone.

      • Mustang5Oh

        Are you always an ignorant jerk or do you just play that part on the internet?

      • hideousbeing

        Sorry, I just had a bad day, i am sometimes too impulsive. ;P

  • לירון לו

    What’s the wallpaper from the iPhone 5s picture?,

  • Matt

    Why does it have to be an Audi with BMW i8 concept lights??
    Why can’t it be a BMW i8 which looks more beautiful?

  • Matt

    What’s going on with my biteSMS app?? :D

    • Chris Wagers

      What’s the problem? Even though it doesn’t have anything to do with this artist or wallpaper.

      • MHCsk

        App masks apply only to AppStore apps. For Cydia apps there has to be separate icon for every app in the theme.

    • Mago

      You need to theme the actual bitesms icon from withing the app folder! I had that issue with Suave HD on my iphone 5s it wouldnt theme! But replacing the icon work for me

  • Devin Lovelace

    I think these dynamic wallpapers are making my iPhone blink when I put it to sleep. Anyone else experiencing this?

  • Jason

    can anyone recommend an app for iPad wallpapers?

  • Mago

    Nice wallpapers and theme here is my HS!!

    • MHCsk

      Yuck.

  • J™

    pardon my ignorance but what is the difference between parallax wallpaper and the normal still ones?

    • Julio M.

      The resolution I think, for example the parallax resolution for the iphone5 is 744×1392, and the normal one(screen resolution) is 640×1136. Correct me if I’m wrong :-)
