  • DeepEnd: Add 3D Depth to Your SpringBoard

    A few days ago I covered some news about a new app called 3DBoard, which created a 3D like effect for your SpringBoard icons. However, our good friend Ryan Petrich, developer of OverBoard, has been developing an app very similar called DeepEnd.

    The biggest difference here is that it is the Wallpaper reacts to your movements rather than the icons, which creates a 3D feel and add's depth to your wallpaper. It is rumored that the price when release will compete with that of 3DBoard. Both apps are a similar end result yet work differently under the hood.

    DeepEnd is currently still in beta, but for those impatient for the official release, you can try the beta version from Ryan Petrich’s beta repo: http://rpetri.ch/repo/.

      I doubt that's a Verizon iPhone in the video

      Might be worth noting that it requires an iphone 4, because the gyroscope is a dependency of the tweak

      What does that have to do with anything?

      Meh. I just got it. Not that great compared to the video demo of 3dboard. Looks like I'll be waiting for that one instead.

      Yea moving only the wallpaper doesn't really create the effect well
      Maybe 3dboard+deepend= perfect 3d

      I wonder if they would work together.

      Would it be possible to make one without the use of a gyroscope?
