Add New Dynamic Wallpapers to iOS

iOS 8 dynamic background

Dynamic wallpapers are one of the more interesting additions to iOS, having been released with iOS 7. Since then, Apple has not added any new animated backgrounds to the mix. Jailbreaking remains the only way to unlock hidden dynamic wallpapers or get completely new dynamic wallpapers installed on your device. Particle Wallpapers continues this trend.

Once installed from Cydia, Particle Wallpapers adds a collection of eight new dynamic wallpapers under Settings -> Wallpaper. While each option in the collection is similar, they come in different color schemes. The animation resembles flying through space or some kind of cosmic explosion continually happening right on the home screen. Particle Wallpapers is hard to miss, with a much more aggressive look than the stock dynamic wallpapers' subtle animation.
