How to Adjust Your Wallpaper’s Alpha Settings

If you’re searching for some additional control over your iPhone’s wallpaper, then WAlpha is available to help.

No, it has nothing to do with Wolfram Alpha, I too thought the same thing and was a bit disappointed when I found out otherwise. Instead, WAlpha stands for Wallpaper Alpha, and it does one thing and one thing only: allows you to adjust the alpha settings for the wallpaper on your Home screen and Lock screen.


WAlpha features an overall kill switch in the Settings app, and a slider to adjust the alpha settings. Depending on your wallpaper, it can make a visual difference, and is especially helpful for your keeping your Lock screen wallpaper bright and cheery if that’s what you’re seeking.

If this sounds interesting to you, head over to Cydia and give WAlpha a try. It’s compatible with jailbroken iDevice’s running iOS 4.x and iOS 5.x, so you should have no problem getting it to work.
