It would be nice to support parallax scrolling background as ambience. Basically it would be at last two background image and the one on the front would move quicker than the one in the back. It would be better supporting 2 or more layers. It definitely would add more wow factor to sliding between lock screen and home screen.

see wikipedia for parallax scrolling:

When ambiences get into the store, people could make these backgrounds. Obviously it can not be made from the gallery, as the layers of the parallax background should be using an alpha channel too for being transparent to the other layers.

Option two: Only with making the backgrounds react to the gyro sensor, it instantly gives 3d feeling when the user tilts the phone. With 2 layers it can be cartoon like, with more than 2 layers, it can be even realistic.

Please vote if You like the idea, as currently being Jolla responsible for the UX only Jolla can implement this, I believe.
