  • 3DBoard Makes Your Springboard Icons 3D
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB6K14ZaWvM&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - 3DBoard - Glasses Free 3D EFFECT for SpringBoard[/ame]



    Word is buzzing around on the interweb (that's that thing connected by a bunch of tubes, right?) about a new tweak coming to your iOS 4.0+ iDevice in the near future.

    Apocalipse, the developer of 3DBoard, released the above video demonstrating the effect. While it's hard to really grasp a good feel for what this might look like, I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy and give you guys a closer look. It might be one of those things where it only looks right with the naked eye.

    Nonetheless, I'm rather excited to see how this tweak preforms. Find it soon (no ETA) in Cydia rumored to be $4. (Sorry no freebie here)

      It works best if you wear an eye patch

      Noticed this was updated already for a bug fix...I'm hoping that another update is in the works to make this work otherwise I think a refund is in order. Tried with stock icons & various wallpaper, including the one posted above.

      Ok- toggle on/off from within the app setting in "settings" and it works. Sorry to dev for misunderstanding where to toggle!

      Looks like any theme that overlays the wallpaper breaks it. Even if that overlay has a transparent area. The wallpaper that shows still doesn't move.

      Updated to 1.0.0-2... And it's still not working on my iPhone 4 (4.1 FW)
      Toogle on/off, re-spring, power off/on so many times that I lost count...
      Deactivate several tweaks to test out too...

      So I guess the "3D" in the 3DBoard name means:
      1. Disappointed.
      2. Deceived.
      3. Defective.

      Ok firstly, right now its only using the accelerometer, so it'll work on all devices 4.0+. I will add compass + gyro support so it will take advantage of the improved motion sensing in devices with them.
      It's a SpringBoard tweek using MobileSubstrate, so it will work just fine with any themes, right now the only thing its NOT compatible with is Parallax, but i'm working on that.
      As for depth, that will be adjustable.
      For the guy who said he doesnt want it on activator, well it will have an activator toggle, but you can just leave it enabled if you want....nobody's making you disable it (and unlike graviboard, it doesnt impede functionality, so disabling it isnt overly necessary to use apps)
      As for battery drain, its not so bad, like i said my power's been out 24 hours, i've been wathcing netflix and youtube, tweeting, etc, my battery has held up just fine, played videos for a good 8 hours before i had to plug it into the car. Also, I'm pretty good with detecting battery drain, my other app BatteryDetective was written to help with that :P.
      Should be out in the next week or two, I'm busy recouping everything @ home and work from this winter storm, but this will get required attention

      Anyhow, any other questions feel free to ask here, or i'm on twitter @apocolipse269

      It doesnt work with G.O.C. HD theme

      Yeah this time it screwed my springboard. Had to swipe for sbsettings and go to power and enter safe mode then uninstall 3dboard and now my springboard is fine.

      I updated without problems. Weird.

      Same here...
      My springboard crashed immediately and it went into safe mode after updating...
      This really shows how defective this tweak it...

      Come on... At least let me see my phone on "3D" mode once before I delete it permanently off my phone.
      Not really that I wanna use it so much, but I was fooled and already paid for this piece of crap... I just wanna see my "merchandise" first...

      For those who is hesitating to get 3DBoard, wait for it be stable enough to function on all iOS 4.X as advertised... Or stay away from it.

      Not worth 2.99 seriously.

      My springboard crashed too after update.

      Unfortunately I have to agree with most everyone here: this tweak doesn't work. I've installed, toggled on/off, resprung, rebooted, uninstalled, as well as multiple variations of the above yet to no avail.
      If a refund is possible, I'm asking for it.

      OK, the update screwed up my springboard also. I uninstalled, respringed, reinstalled and it is finally working now. weird. It has the exact same effect that DeepEnd has only DeepEnd is free and more customizable.

      All it does is make your wallpaper move when you tilt your iphone. Dont let the videos fool you.

      This tweak completely sucks. I've tried a zillion different combos by disabling every mobilesubstrate tweak that I thought might interfere with it, but after countless resprings: NOTHING.

      Did the developer even bother testing this before releasing it? I can't believe this is a paid app.

      It's the same as deepend just not as reliable and it's paid. It's a joke
