  • 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.

      PATH: “[root]/var/stash/Applications.xxx/ and Rename the folder “AdSheet.app” in “AdSheet” > RESPRING

      Deleting might cause problems in the future

      Why can't we delete music from our iDevices? And why is there no "recently added" section in the iPod.app? Ridiculous!!

      My favorite tweaks:

      afc2add
      Airplane Toggle for SBSettings
      AppLinks
      Chronus
      Cyntact
      Daemon Tool
      iFile - go ahead and activate it by purchasing a license
      Mobile Terminal (NEW) v520-1
      MyWy
      OpenSSH
      QuickReply for SMS
      SBSettings
      SnowCover4
      Speed Intensifier
      Speed Intensifier Addon
      sysclean
      untrackerd
      WinterBoard
      3G Unrestrictor

      System and Clock font manually themed
      Mojo/Classica3/Tetra icons with custom ones by me
      Principium SD ported by me (not made)
      Dock (NFR copy cat)
      SBSettings theme - Gimme modded
      Various UI mods by me
      Android Froyo UI sounds

      Activator set to go to multi-task iPod control when device is shaken on home screen.

      Suggestions:

      lockinfo or Notified+ (I don't like OpenNotifier its buggy)

      Dock is kinda like that but totally not. Don't know if that makes any sense. Plus it supports folders.

So this is why I think jailbreaking is an awesome tool in today's market as it allows anyone to customize THEIR phones to THEIR liking or what is practical for there everyday lives.
      You seem to forget that before the App Store there was Cydia. Before MultiTasking there was BackGrounder. Wallpaper. And so on and so on. Also they are supposed to be implementing Multiflow expose style multitasking into the next phone. I think the question is where would the millions and Apple be without the JB community.

      here's a tip for people using ancient and buggy mobile terminal. if you have any ssh client app (i use iTerm) just ssh 127.0.0.1, log in as root, and you're all set. i got tired of trying to chase down a version of mobile terminal that was updated and not buggy. sad, but this is one case the app store offerings put cydia's to shame.

      Springtomize, Barrel, Iconoclasm, etc. With all the great tweaks, who needs a theme?

      You mean they need tweaks now for the Home button, Silent switch, and the Volume buttons?
      My supervisor for one.
