  • InfiniBoard - Vertical Scrolling Comes To Your SpringBoard


    InfiniBoard is a new application by @chpwn that lets you scroll through your springboard icons vertically as opposed to the default which is horizontally. @chpwn also developed ProSwitcher (multi-tasking app) and Infinidock (dock scrolling).

    InfiniBoard will be available in a few hours from now through Cydia for $1.99. Future support for OverBoard is integrated into this release, but until a new update to Overboard is released, the icons will not show up for now. I imagine this will be resolved in the next day or two.

    So what do you prefer? Vertical or Horizontal? Both? Share your thoughts and keep your eyes peeled for this one.

      ^^ Try something called swapmode which lets you temporarily disable all jailbreak extensions then switch back. Simply get that and switch it on and then sync. Fixed all my itunes sync related safe mode issues lol

      Before this app, I have never had 1 problem. Is there something I can install in the backround that I don't have to turn on and off everytime? Seems alot to use this app

      Hey chpwn I know this isnt really related to infiniboard but I know your a great coder and dedicated to helping people out, and I was wondering if you could work on the old spinboard beta project that has been long abandoned by the dev. His mod allowed you to rotate the springboard icons through the accelorometer but his mod was only compatible with 2.2.1 and below (rotation sensitivity changed in 3.0).This was the coolest mod ever and I have searched and submitted threads for over a year trying to get someone to work on the project or at least something similar. You clearly have knowledge of highly sophisticated springboard coding and I was hoping you could make this mod. (Maybe even add roation of the dock and statusbar).

      OMFG How could I have forgotten about that mod! We really need to get someone to get it finished. chpwn, I seriously think that you might be able to make some real money off of this and be praised throughout the jailbreak community. Does anyone know someone that has the skills required to do this? Please I really want spinboard!

      A complete horizontal springboard? Yes that would be awesome!

      @chpwn

      Do you have any plans to add vertical scroll locking (no bouncing) on pages with 16 icons or less? It just makes it a little more difficult to quickly flip through pages.

      Thanks!

      Horizontal and now Vertical.
      How much until a pinch to zoom function in the Springboard?
      Or something like the iPad's autorotate SB.
      Who's with me?

      Wasn't it like this when the first jailbreak was released? Wow, feels like it was years ago when I had my phone like that. Good times.

      Just installed this, and I've put all the apps in appropriate places. Quite pleased with it so far. But we'll see in a day or two if there are any issues.

      What do you mean by "one page down"? Does it not let you add more than one page of additional icons vertically? What else do you have installed?

      Well i was having trouble dragging icons down to a third screen.

      1 4
      \/
      2
      \/
      3 screen would not come up

      After i filled up 2 (16slots) then i could go down. But in order for me to drag icons i have to bring them to screen 4 go back to 1 pull down to reach screen 2,3 then over to 4 again to pull them to 2 or 3. I cannot drag icons down through levels.

      Am i using it incorrectly?

      Yes: there is currently not a way to vertically scroll a page while holding an icon.

      drag icons to the 1st page or whatever page you want them on. it will go to the bottom. you can not see them being added until they are there. they just get pushed down.

      Anyone else have icon placement issues after updating apps? When I update an app through the app store, the icon stays in place during the loading stage, but when the app finishes updating, the icon gets removed from it's current page (page 1), and placed on page 2.

      chpwn, this is an amazing mod for the iPhone! As someone mentioned earlier this goes well with many themes along with springjumps. Only thing I would like to see there is a way to disable horizontal swiping between the pages.

      Not sure if it could be a feature of Infiniboard, or perhaps something you'd be interested in cooking up..? if anyone's capable it's surely you mate!
