  • '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

      Here's a problem, if you quick reply in ISX with messages+, the messages icon continues to bounce until you open it, even though you have already seen it and responded

      Big deal. Why do you need to know the app is active? Most the time apps in your dock are active. Bouncing For notifications Would just be irritating. Maybe have the light show up for notifications instead and the bounce just for launch (which is still pointless).

      The tweak is meant to add functionality. It's mean to be aesthetically appealing.

      I think you're looking for RetinaPad

      Not much functionality in my opinion. My suggestions would be more functional. If you just want aesthetics then fine. Bouncey bounce.

      Oops. I meant it isn't meant to add functionality.

      I can't seem to Find this Tweak in the BigBoss Repo. I even tried a search & was unable to Find it.

      So how was the developer able to get blurred icons on the dock? I already have my ML dock but it would be cool if I could just add blur without having to actually pay for this.
