'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.
