Create An iPhone Smart Cover Using Always On Proximity and SurfacePad
In December last year, Anthony covered a Jailbreak tweak called Always On Proximity
, which allowed you to enable and disable the proximity sensor on demand, allowing you to use this feature in a different manner.
When combining this feature with a product by TwelveSouth called SurfacePad, you can finally get that Smart Cover action on your iPhone and not just your iPad.
Obviously this little trick will require you to have a jailbroken iPhone and Always On Proximity installed. Then apply the SurfacePad cover as normal and Voila, you now have a Smart Cover that performs just liked the iPad.
Of course this same method can be applied to nearly any case/cover that folds over the front screen, thus utilizing the proximity sensor. Word on the street however is that the SurfacePad is the way to go.
Has anyone else use Always On Proximity to duplicate this idea?
