ModMyi reported a few weeks back that Dan Zimmerman (@DanZimm), creator of Vibrafications and AppLocket, is working on a new project calledAnicons. Anicons incorporates important settings toggles directly on your SpringBoard for easy access. When you tap and interact with the toggles, they turn components on/off and make special animations to show you what state the particular toggle is in. For toggles such as 3G or WiFi, the button shows what the signal strength is and changes depending on reception and connectivity.
The previous Anicons post mentioned what types of features were already incorporated in the beta that was available. Here is what has been updated:
- A respring icon was added
- The airplane and WiFi icon were moved from his other separate projects into Anicons
- Hide icons from displaying on the SpringBoard via the Anicons settings tab (in Settings.app)
- The icons were re-designed (thanks to Surenix (@iSurenix))
After speaking with Dan today, he stated that Anicons will be submitted to Cydia within the next 24 hours.
When Anicons is available on Cydia, it will cost $1.99. It will be available on all firmwares 4.0+ and on all devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad (including iPad 2))

For future reference: Dan mentioned to me that an update is in the works that will give the user more customization per icon (based on the icon label). He is unable to speak about it at this time, however when this update comes out, Anicons will be pushed up to $2.99. For those who have already bought it, it will be a free upgrade.
Stay tuned for more information about Anicons - when it is available on Cydia, this post will be updated to reflect the change.
