  • What's New In Cydia: 05/07/2011
    Today we cover Bigify+, HiddenMail, AnimateBattery, ArrangeStatusBar, RandomFlip, and SBFader.

    Bigify+
    J.Corbett & J.Einbinder

    For anyone that used used Bigify before, this is a huge upgrade and a step forward for what the app can offer. It allows you to change various properties of your icons including colours, overlays, effects, textures and so on. You can preview all of these changes in a seperate viewer before applying them, allowing you to really tweak that specific look.

    Simply adjust the sliders, or tap the numberical value to enter one in specifically. The way Bigify+ works makes it unique to each person, as everyone will have various settings that they perfer.

    I spoke with John and here are some suggestions he had

    One of the techniques I use is to make all the images black and white. You can do this by going to advanced and turning on the custom layer. Set the R G B and Alpha bars to max, and set the blend mode to "Saturation". A nice thing that goes with this is going back to colors and turn on invert colors. Also adding a texture like "slate" makes for a nice effect.

    You can also darken/lighten your icons by changing the blend mode to "normal" and then changing the alpha transparency. Set the r g b to 0 to darken, to or max to brigthen. This is reverse if inverting is on.

    I also just like some simple things like just texture on and set to granite. Things tend to look best with only 1 or 2 of the options set up."
    Find Bigify on Cydia for $2.00

    HiddenMail
    moeseth

    Here's a nifty little security based app for your Mail. Let's say for some reason you wish to hide the fact that there is an email account even existing on the phone. Use this tweak to display the usual "Welcome To Mail" setup screen. By simply tapping three times, the screen will bring you to your hidden mail account. While it may not be the most secure way of hidding personal email, it's a great idea. Best of all, it's free. Find it in Cydia.


    AnimateBattery
    Elias Limneos

    Another unique tweak brought to you by Elias Limneos. AnimateBattery adds an nice animation to the battery charging screen on your lockscreen. For this particular animation, the battery bar will start from empty and fill up to its current charge point, and then repeats.

    This tweak is part of the TweakWeek, where developers set goals to release a new tweak every day, for a week.

    ArrangeStatusBar
    Elias Limneos

    Another TweakWeek release brought to you by Elias Limneos. ArrangeStatusBar enables you to be able to drag various items in the status bar and arrrange them as you please. Simply drag and drop

    Random Flip
    Elias Limneos

    Yup, that's right, he's on a roll. Here's another great tweak from Elias Limneos. Random flip does something interesting, which at first I wasn't sure about, but now I'm really enjoying it. Make it feel as if the phone is always alive (Aside from way too many twitter notifications). Icons on yours springboard will randomly flip around. I like this as it adds some character to the phone.

    This tweak is part of the TweakWeek, where developers set goals to release a new tweak every day, for a week.

    SBFader
    Alexandros Melakis

    SBFader has lots of potential. It's a simple twaeak that allows you to add fade-ins/outs in almost evey transition. It does have it's kinks for now and it will take a lot of time getting it just the way you want, but the concept leaves it wide open for you to do with as you please.

    Find SBFader in Cyida for $0.99


    That's it for now guys, If I missed something, feel free to post it

      Anyone else been having major issues with payments in Cydia today? Seems like it has something to do with saurik's server because I can't even get into account management without load errors.

      EDIT... ok after the 20th time it loaded. If anyone else is having issues just be patient and keep trying.

      Same here, seems like a server time out error.

      I've just tried and have no problems - hopefully it was just a glitch. Hopefully all OK for you now as well.


      Just like to say thanks for the tweaks - Elias Limneos seems to have been busy!


      Don't know if I'll use any of them or all of them but it's great that people make these things for us

      What items can you drag into the status bar for ArrangeStatusBar? I think you can only rearrange what's already there.

      yup - outside of America that date is written how people understand dates.

      Poseidon79 - errors being reported on IRC as well, seems to only be affecting some people?

      Random Flip only seems to flip 4 apps. Have been watching it now for like 10 min and it's the same apps that flip.

      Does Bigify+ give the option to do a single icon or does it just do them all?

      Another great idea that isn't that great if it doesn't... Just like FolderLock..

      I only wish I had the ability to lock a SINGLE folder and not ALL of them. Please tell me when that app hits Cydia.

      Wow.. I like this "tweakweek" idea but if the devs don't take the necessary time to make these stable than all these innovations are pretty much worthless they start working on another app the next day Im having problems with a few other tweaks from the tweakweek initiative.

      I havent seen any icons flip. It may be the theme that I'm using. can you tell me which icons you know that "are" flipping? So I can put those icons on my first page.

      Thanks in advance.

      arrangestatusbar is pretty cool unless you swipe your statusbar for sbsettings. youll just keep moving them around when youre trying to drop your sbsettings.

      anybody know if theres a way to move things where you want and then lock them into place?

      Lock in place using option inside ArrangeStatusbar within settings ... option to lock in place ... I found that my clock still moves around when using AVPLAYER ...
