  • 'ActiveDock' Now Available for Download in Cydia


    On Thursday we showed you an upcoming jailbreak tweak called ActiveDock by iOS developer Filippo Bigarella and graphic designer Surenix, which would make your iOS application dock look and behave more like the dock in OS X Mountain Lion, but you don't have to wait any longer because it's now available for download in Cydia.

    ActiveDock actually changes the appearance of the dock in iOS to match the frosted glass appearance of the application dock in OS X Mountain Lion. In addition, the application icon reflections have also been changed to mimic that of the application dock in OS X Mountain Lion. Apart from mere appearance, ActiveDock does much more.

    ActiveDock will actually display an OS X Mountain Lion-styled light bar under the applications on the dock that are open in the App Switcher. If you close an application from the App Switcher, the light-bar will go away. What’s more is applications will bounce when launched, similarly to how they do in Mac OS X. The bouncing animation also applies to when you receive notifications from one of the applications in your application dock. You can choose settings for how often the bouncing occurs.

    ActiveDock is a neat little tweak for those of you that enjoy those simple little details of iOS customization that make using your device a pleasure to use. If you’re interested in grabbing ActiveDock, you will find it in the Bigboss repository for $1.99. In case you were wondering, it's compatible with all iPhones, iPod touches and iPads running iOS 6.

    Name: ActiveDock
    Price: $1.99
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 6
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer(s): Filippo Bigarella and Surenix

      Well so far I can find nothing this does beside the light. Might of worked good on Xcode but not in reality. Good try though.

      Make sure the apps on your dock have banners set to "ON" in notification settings.

      Does not work for me. Have disabled all MobileSubstrate Tweaks but it does not work for me. Bounce on Launch is working but Bounce on Notifications is not working.

      And one question. It is themeable with Winterboard?

      Yippee! This worked for me! Finally it 'lives'. Lol. It's just a pity that BiteSMS is not compatible with it. Apple messages works and bounces fine. Thanks for the tip!

      I like the fact that it's now compatible with biteSMS. However, I tend to use the quick reply function a lot. If one replies to a message using that function, the message icon still bounces. Is there a way to fix that?

      Yea this happens when you look at the email on your computer and push clears the notification. It won't stop bouncing till you launch the email app.

      So I noticed the indicator lights up while app is OPEN on screen but once minimized ... The light turns off and it still running in the switcher and processes .
