'InstaVelox' Adds Instagram Functionality to the Velox Jailbreak Tweak
Those Instagram users out there – we know there are plenty – now have something to snag in Cydia if Instagram and Velox are common interests. Velox
, in case you haven’t heard of it yet, is a popular jailbreak tweak that lets you use applications right from the home screen in folder-like interfaces without having to actually open them.
A new free add-on for Velox called InstaVelox
by iOS developer M_Vincent_M is now available in Cydia and allows Instagram users to swipe up or down on the Instagram application icon to reveal an Instagram picture feed. From the interface that the add-on gives you, you will be able to view the picture feed, view your profile, or upload pictures.
The picture feed actually loads in the folder-like interface rather than launching the full application, so once you close it, you won’t have an instance of Instagram suspended in the App Switcher. This comes in handy if you use multiple Instagram accounts, or if you just want to access Instagram from the home screen because you know other iPhones that aren’t jailbroken can’t.
InstaVelox requires that you have the Instagram application installed, and you will need to purchase Velox if you haven’t already for $1.99 in Cydia’s BigBoss repository and install it before you can install InstaVelox. InstaVelox doesn't have any options to configure.
