    The wallpaper is one of the more personal parts of your iOS device. Itís something that you see every time you turn your iOS device on or unlock it to use it. With that being said, itís always nice to have some variety instead of seeing the same thing all the time.

    A new jailbreak tweak called Wallpaper Cyclr by iOS developer Brian Cooper aims to take this idea and make it into a reality. The tweak makes it so you can enter tags of things you enjoy. The tweak will then use those tags to search Tumblr and automatically set your wallpaper to something related to the tags you set. It cycles through wallpapers at a speed that you set in the tweak's preferences pane located in the Settings application:

    From the preferences pane, you can enable and disable the tweak on demand. Additionally, you will be able to type in the tags that you want the tweak to use to pull pictures from Tumblr and then choose the number of tags to match, and choose the number of hours between wallpaper cycles. You will also be able to force a wallpaper cycle if you donít like a wallpaper that appears, and you will be able to open the current wallpaper in Tumblr via Mobile Safari if you want to save it.

    At any time that you force a wallpaper cycle, you will need to lock and then unlock the device again for it to take effect. It can take up to a minute for the new wallpaper to save to the home screen and lock screen. This helps the tweak in being both battery and CPU efficient.

    Whether you are looking for variety or youíre just indecisive about what you want to set as your iOS device wallpaper, Wallpaper Cyclr is a good way to randomize what you see on your home screen and lock screen each time you use your device. If you would like to try using the tweak, it's available for 99Ę in Cydia's BigBoss repository.
