PaperGram – a photo from any Instagram tape as an iPhone wallpaper

A new picture as a desktop wallpaper always brings a little freshness to the graphic design of the iPhone interface, however, regularly searching the Internet for new screensavers is quite tiring.

To automate this process, you can use jailbreak tweak PaperGram.

The main feature of the plugin is, that it is looking for images to be installed as an iOS background not in a specific database, and in the user-specified Instagram feed. At the same time, it is not necessary to be an active user of this social network — you don’t even need an existing account in it and an Instagram client installed on an iPhone.

It is enough to specify in the tweak settings the ID of the tape you like (specified in the address bar after instagram) and PaperGram will start loading images automatically.

Here are some examples of tapes, which use as «donors» wallpaper:


  • Girls — topshotmodels, amuseme.co, lebordel18, hott_girls_united, joselyncano
  • Cars — black_list, viipcars_, luxuryvehicle, singervehicledesign, drewphillipsphoto
  • Cats — cats_of_instagram, catsofworld, typical_cats;
  • Nature — awesome_earthpix, naturerad, purposeofenvy, awesome.earth;
  • Space — nasagoddard, hubble_space, spacedotcom.

Remarkable, That the tweak allows you to display different tapes on the desktop and the iOS lock screen. Besides, You can set the time to update images from the donor tape (from 1 minute to 3 hours), as well as automatic photo scaling.

Naturally, To use the plug-in, you must first perform a device jailbreak procedure (Detailed instructions can be found here). However, PaperGram is definitely worth the attention, especially when you consider the lack of fees for installing tweaks from Cydia.
