  • 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.

      This has been around a long time, and is usually the first thing I download after I jailbreak/restore.

      Lockinfo is stupid. It just makes loading times slower. Infiniboard is cool, just too expensive.

      iPod Touch 4.2.1

      My favorites are:

      StatusNamer - allows you to change Carrier and Time strings to anything you want.

      MxTube - download YouTube videos directly to your device

      iFile - awesome viewer and editor for all the files on your device

      Cydia - need i say more?

      I love Multiiconmover, and yes, it does work on iOS 4.3. I'm on 4.3.2 and it works like a charm. Another thing that should have been implemented by Apple long ago would be MarkThatMessage.

      CleanStatus can do that, along with remove almost, if not, all features that iOS places on the Status Bar, along with recoloring the background, carrier, Cell & WiFi signal bars, 3G/Edge icons, Clock.

      And it's free.

      Kuaidial can block calls (no Messages yet), along with selected call history deletion, contact list selection from numeric keypad, and many more.

      Wrong, please don't generalize Winterboard. Winterboard runs in the background whenever a theme that has a widget has been selected in Winterboard. Most themes don't include widgets because some people such as I don't like widgets due to having of course lagging. But like changing the look and feel of my phone. Also, InfiniBoard expensive? Not that much compared to other apps, even if you are a teenager like I, all I do is save my some of my paycheck cash, get a credit gift card and get the apps. Not that hard my friend. Unless you have no job and can't spare $30.

      still a big fan of winter board, why this ability is not there by default continues to baffle me.

      I honestly use CleanStatus to change the color of my Time. I just wasnt sure if I was wanting to put it I do like CleanStatus though

      Yes there's an app I want. When I play tunes I want to add THE CURRENTLY PLAYING SONG to a playlist. I want to touch the screen, have a pop up appear, and click add. Configuring what playlist in advance would be best. Maybe two or three could be chosen from: add to #1, add to #2, or cancel. Presently I have iRemix I think it is. The app I want could interface with iTunes similarly, but iRemix doesn't do at all what I want. The pop up is not present everywhere. There is no way to add to a playlist. A person could make a lot of money writing this app since many people are asking for it. When I walk and hear a song I really like or want to delete, I view and try to remember the current song, I minimize iPod, I open notes, then type in the title and what to do. Later when I get home I open iTunes, screw with the playlists, then resync. This is a real pain in the a** and I get tired of being stuck with a morally, aesthetically pure iPhone made by Apple that doesn't do what I want.
