  • MultiIconMover: And Other Things Apple Should Already Be Doing


    I am constantly amazed at some of the small innovations the jailbreak community comes up with week in and week out. From fixing small gripes (Infinidock) to implementing features that should have been available since the iPhone 1 (Wi-Fi Sync), the jailbreak community exudes a flexibility AppStore developers aren't granted from Apple.

    The latest little gem I came across in Cydia is MultiIconMover (which I'm sure many of you already have). The app has been around for a good time, and I'm not sure how I didn't find it earlier. I have always found it frustrating to move icons one at a time from page to page on the home screen, pulling it to the edge of the screen till the iPhone Gods grant it passage to a new land.

    MultiIconMover makes this incredibly easy by allowing the user to select multuple icons once on the SpringBoard (when the icons start jiggling with the x). After the icons have been selected you swipe to the desired page and hit the home button to drop the selected icons to the new page. You just need to make sure there is enough space on the new pages for the selected icons.

    Like I mentioned before there are a ton of other useful apps available to the jailbreak community. What are your favorite? The most useful? And are there any ideas for new apps you'd like to see in the marketplace?

    *Note*
    There currently is no way to use MultiIconMover for iOS 4.3.

      I think the Obvious Choice is SBSettings. I also love BiteSMS, quick replies and text counters should have been around a while ago

      Wow, so Negative. Infiniboard or Infinifolders are awesome tweaks. Price is not a issue with these apps. They are worth the money I paid for them.

      Very true. SBSettings is the first piece of JB goodness I install, then is TetherMe. Love them Both!

      Being I have 4 email accounts and a busy calendar, LockInfo is a must for me. It saves me tons of time not having to unlock my phone everytime I need to check my mail or agenda.

      Yes, winterboard slows any iPhone model down now themes have actual ads running at the top. I no longer have winterboard installed.

      Dont be such a cheap bastard. Im grateful these devs make up such awesome apps for cydia, and i dont mind showing them that with a little kickback. I mean, come on. Whats a couple bucks, or even five? These guys spend their precious time coming up with awesome, well thought solutions for those of us unable to code or write apps for ourselves. I personally want to encoutage these guys to continue inovating.

      People even in this thread have been naming tweaks that change various features on the status bar, lockscreen, and springboard.

      Springtomize makes about 50 tweaks and mods irrelevant. It does everything.

      Get it, and clear out all those tweaks you won't need anymore.

      What themes are you downloading that have ads? haha, you might need to look into that. I've never seen an ad-supported theme. :/

      The ads come and go. I had just downloaded winterboard and added a complete theme from a year or 2 ago then all of a sudden I got an ad at top of screen. If no theme or just a icon dock theme an ad will be at the top once in a while. I had not added any repositories just stock Cydia and winterboard.

      The first thing I install after restore and j/b is SBSettings then I get biteSMS. Now I don't have a problem with Winterboard at all, I have just found I don't use it that often. MyWi 4 is still a favorite of mine and I hope I don't get another letter this month (fingers crossed) iStrings is fun too. I got tired of changing them the long way!!!

      Haha I found a better solution to that. Google Voice. Just give those girls that number and not your real number. Easy to block online.

      Intelliscreen is my favorite, not only do I get small notification icons next to my battery indicator which tells if I have a missed call/SMS/email, but it also gives me more SMS privacy, no name or message preview appears.

      Agreed, I only use tweaks that doesn't require me to have winterboard installed.

      For me, it has to be PkgBackup, after an upgrade/restore, this makes my life so much easier.
      It saves me from having to try and remember what sources, apps or files to download again.

      I can't remember the name of an app I used to have that would let me close all the apps that were in the background with one click. In the multi tasking bar it would put a red arrow on the top and close anything to the right of the arrow. Anyone know what this is?
