  • 'ClockFade' Adds a Fade-in Animation to the Status Bar Clock When Unlocking the Device


    Normally when you unlock your iOS device, the Status Bar clock just appears without any animation. Itís a very simple, and somewhat boring, experience.

    A new free jailbreak tweak available in Cydia starting today allows users to add a fade-in animation to the Status Bar clock when unlocking the iOS device. The tweak is called ClockFade by iOS development team Hashbang Productions.

    As shown above, when the device is first unlocked, there is no clock in the Status Bar. As soon as all of the application icons become aligned in the center of the display, as the device normally does when unlocking the device, the Status Bar clock fades into the Status Bar.

    The new animation is very subtle, but indeed very satisfying. The animation feels so smooth and feels like it should have been there from the get-go. The tweak comes with the ability to change the animation delay and fade duration.

    If you want to add this feature, you can grab ClockFade from the Cydia store right now for free.

    Name: ClockFade
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Hashbang Productions

      Only works on home screen. If I lock with settings or mail or any app open, I see no animation.

      the only way I know, is to get a tweak called 'Move2Unlock'. you can disable everything except the lock screen status clock and you'll have what you want. I find this great for quick reply. whether it be bitesms, iRealSMS or messages+

      This is intentional. It looks strange to have an app with all its content open and be waiting for the clock to fade in.

      First thought this would be dull... But you know what, I enjoy this.

      Good tweak.

      I will have to agree here, why waste your time making a reply... On something you don't like? Go find some tweak you like and comment there.

      It's okay if you don't like it, just don't call it stupid and act like it's a waste of my time to make it, because then I'll stop making tweaks.
