Was playing around with a few of the backgrounds and found that if you set a panorama pic from your photos as the background wallpaper, that when you tilt the phone, it will pan across the entire panorama pic with your icons overlayed. Very very cool feature. :) Anyone else tried this?

Hmmm.. I tried it, but it only seemed significant when I tilted up/down. When I went side to side it didnt do much?

might depend on the width of the panorama. The one i'm using is almost a 360 and will pan the entire pic.

I had to set mine via Settings > Brightness and Wallpaper for it to pan properly. It didn't seem to work so well from the Photos app. Quite impressive now.
