  • 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.

      It was very easy to do on 1.x. It is much, much harder recently, which is why nobody else has done it!

      That's because before the App Store was out, SpringBoard was much simpler, and significantly easier to create vertical scrolling. Now, its a complicated hack, and the original version was likely a fraction of the amount of work to create.

      I agree, it should, and it'd be simple for Apple to do. Its just not simple to add on to what they already have.

      Thats the iPhone Simulator, its not a real iPhone. It runs on my computer, and I use it to test quickly to make sure I'm not breaking anything .

      Yeah, I mean you could find $2 in your couch. Think of it from a developers perspective. They don't have to waste many hours bringing you a piece of functionality. Complaining about $2 probably makes YOU the greedy one, not them.

      Fallguy: this scrolls every page. It adds a dimension to store icons in.

      It is not on cydia yet? .
      Telling from the video, it seems that the bottom icons are kind of visible, more precisely, the top part.
      And what would happen with an custom theme with a low profile dock?

      It'll be on Cydia in around 4 hours or so. I'm not sure what you mean there about the dock...

      So under the bottom row of icons, you can see there the top part of some icons that are like under the dock itself.

      Yeah, and if you have a transparent dock they'll show behind that. I might make that a setting in the future!

      Hey chpwn will there be vertical page dots on like the side of the page as an option? And will the vertical scrolling only scroll smoothly like smoothboard or will it have like vertical pages that lock on. Also if there is vertical pages could you make it so you can like scroll down and then right so youd end up below the second page?
      Oh and do you plan on fixing Stack V3 because I know you talked to the dev about fixing it.

      No, that would require a complete rewrite of the page dots. Instead, there is an optional scrollbar.

      It is smooth vertical scrolling.

      Not sure what you mean.

      No; he wanted to charge me over $10,000 to buy the project to fix it.

      I may make it an option to not have the icons shown outside the list itself in the future. Probably for 1.1.

      Is the vertical scrolling gonna lock every four rows like the horizontal scrolling, or is it going to be all smooth?

      I would prefer if it locked in place, but am still gonna use it either way.

      The iPhone doesn't support pagination vertically. It is a smooth scroll.
