The Popular Page Transitioning Tweak, Barrel, Has Been Updated for iOS 7
For those of you who have been around the jailbreak scene for quite some time, the name ďBarrelĒ rings a bell. Itís a tweak that we and many others view as one of the must-have jailbreak tweaks as it offers the wow-factor of customization quite well. Barrel is the type of tweak that one can use to convince skeptical friends that jailbreaking is definitely worth the hassle and showcasing the tweak often leads to converting a friend into someone who jailbreaks. Itís definitely not the type of app that enhances the usability of your iOS device but itís still a tweak that comes to mind when thinking jailbreak.
The tweak has recently been updated to support iOS 7 thanks to the recent update of the Mobile Substrate (now called Cydia Substrate).
For those of you who donít know what it is, Barrel allows users to insert transitions between pages on the iPhoneís Home Screen. The transition happens whenever you swipe from page to page and the transitions can range from a subdued fade-in to the more radical snake transition. Barrel includes well over a dozen different transitions to choose from and if you canít decide on which one you want, you can opt for the random select transition that will keep you guessing with every page swipe. One of the cool things about the tweak is that the transitions can be changed on the fly so there isnít a need to constantly respring your iOS device.
Aaron Ash, the creator of Barrel is currently offering the tweak for $2.99. Those of you who currently donít own it definitely need to pick it up and those of you who already do, make sure you update!
