What if you could give your wallpapers, a little touch? Amelija adds neat blur effects to your Home screen and Lock screen.

The wallpaper on the iPhone is a personal choice that they use to customize the look of the home screen, which depends on each other’s preferences. But in some cases, the wallpaper used can clutter the home screen with all the app icons overlapping everything. So, one way to fix this problem is to apply a blur effect to the wallpaper. So, there are several ways to do this. That is, you can edit them with a photo editing app, or if you are jailbroken, you can do it on the device on the fly with a jailbreak tweak. So, let’s see how to do it with Jailbreak tweak.
