  • SmoothBoard Allows You To Scroll Smoothly Through Pages
    Once again we have another great tweak that has been developed by Aaron Ash called SmoothBoard. Last week I talked about InfiniDock, which enabled scrolling within the Dock. Today we are treated with a similar concept, and even comes without a price tag.

    Installing this tweak will allow you to scroll through every page without it locking to each single page one at a time and having to swipe a gazillion times. OverBoard and Orbit brought us the ability to see all our pages, but this is one step further, because now you can scroll from one end to the other incredibly fast. It's so smooth its almost fun to just scroll back and forth. (on 3GS at least)

    Springboard doesn't 'lock' when scrolling. A big swipe can scroll through multiple pages instead of only one page per swipe. If you stop scrolling Springboard won't "snap" to the nearest page, it will just stay in between pages.

    There are a few minor bugs. (like springboard snapping to the nearest page when an app is opened) But it does not hinder any functionality, and you can still move icons around just fine.
    So far I haven't had any problems with it, except for the fact that I always scroll too far to the left and end up in spotlight.

    This tweak is available in Cydia & Rock for Free! Check it out and let me know what you think!

      I have overboard, infinidock, iconoclasm, and smoothboard all installed. There shouldn't be any problems between them.

      I didn't like it. It's buggy and not as good as Infinidock. Maybe too fast.

      I can see myself using this for some cool theme ideas.

      Great app, if you could tweak it to stop at the first page right before spotlight then it'd be perfect

      First off thanks to the developer for taking the time to create and share this with us. A stop before going into spotlight would be nice but in the meantime what I do whenever I want to go back to the first page is press the home button. That takes me directly to the first page.

      Great tweak! i'd love to see this more configurable. I know that will probably take up more of your time, so why not make a paid version that offers features like: Stopping at the first page, or even stopping at specific pages. Also a toggle would be nice, as opposed to having to use SBSettings to toggle it off (in the dylib section of course). What about bringing back the good ole 1.1.X days where the springboard was scrollable in a vertical manner? :-) That would be awesome!!

      Thanks for such a creative tweak, I hope that there will be updates in the future that will allow some user customization :-)

      OFF TOPIC: Look at my post count!! 1234! lol Saweeet!

      I really like this one, i like the ability to stop in between pages. Ima keep it on for now, not sure if it'll be a keeper though. Future update with options would be nice. e.g. the ability to make a swipe go though a certain number of pages max. (like 3 pages at a time.)

      Good work though (:

      See, i would've had much use for this app if i hadn't had "categories" app. But since i have categories i have everything in folders categorized as games, utilities, etc. I have only 2 pages so this smooth scroll wouldn't be as much useful to me. Good idea though, i like that.

      A nice idea, but I think I'll pass. While I do have 9 pages, I fear I'd skip past the apps I'm looking for.

      I am on 3Gs with Blackrained 3.1OS. I just installed this app and upon installation, my iphone crashed. It took ages to pass the Apple boot logo screen. Now back in, the app is just not installed.

      I wont try it again ...

      Cheers

      If I have time I'd like to write a blog post about how I did it and post the source. I feel like there isn't much out there on how to get started coding a tweak like this, and I'm sure there are people that have cool tweaks in mind but they just don't know where to start.
      That would be awesome.

      Me too. I only have two pages and rely on categories a ton.

      This a cool tweak but it takes some getting used to.

      seems like a cool concept and i like that they are putting it out for free, but seems like it would get annoying in the long run, definitely not for me

      i downloaded and liked it. however it scrolls a little too quick. if perhaps it had a speed control in preferences, i would have probably not deleted it.
