  • What's New In Cydia : LSRotator, Home Page in Safari, FoldersInFolders

    This week everything is available in Cydia, as you all know there is no more Rock. There is quite a bit to cover so lets get started. Fire up Cydia and enjoy these new apps... or continue patiently waiting for the newest jailbreak tool.

    Home Page in Safari
    Will Strafach

    Developed by Will Strafach (@cdevwill), Home Page in Safari allows you to easily set a default home page in Safari. This beats the hell out of a white screen. You can grab it in Cydia for $0.99.

    More by this developer: Camera Preview Disabler, PDF Loading Warner

    LS Rotator
    Elias Limneos

    Compatible with your iPhone or iPod, LSRotator allows you to rotate your lockscreen according to your device's orientation, similar to the way the iPad currently functions. Once you pair this bad boy with SBRotator, you can have your device act just like the iPad.

    By simply tapping the lockscreen with 2 fingers, your able to lock the orientation for those moments when you just don't want to rotate. Rotation duration, orientation angles and graphical options are available under settings.

    *Supports Cydgets, CyDialer, LockInfo, ClockHide, SmartScreen and several other addons.

    Grab it now for only $0.99 in Cydia!

    Note: this is very unstable. Wait for further updates or wait for FolderEnhancer coming soon.

    FoldersInFolders allows you to do just that: Add Folders inside Folders! This tweak will allow for even more in depth management of your folders. You'll need iOS 4 for this one obviously.

    Available in Cydia for $1.99

    NOT yet compatible with GridLock

    Switcher Plus
    biteSMS Developers

    From the developers of biteSMS comes SwitcherPlus. SwitcherPlus is a simple little tweak that allows the native multi-tasking "Switcher" feature to also be used on the Lock Screen at any given time.

    Find it on Cydia for FREE!

    Unify Music/Video into iPod App

    This tweak merges the Music and Video into a unified iPod App. I've always wanted something like this for my iPod. It works on all iPod Touches (1G,2G,3G). Requires Winterboard.

    Grab it for free in Cydia.

      So LS Rotator is compatible with Cydialer. Has anybody else noticed that Cydialer let Alone Cydgets are not compatible with iPhone4? Saurik doesn't respond with support (frownypants)

      FolderinFolders is trash. It has destroyed all of my groups yet again for the third time. Now I have to rearrange 300+ apps by hand for the third time. DON'T BUY THAT JUNK. You will regret it.

      Will someone explain "Unify Music/Video into iPod App?"

      The iPod app already has music and video. Does it add your "Photos" library of videos to the iPod app? I was just hoping for something that did the reverse the other day when I wanted to email someone a short video from a free podcast. You can email videos from the Photos app library but not from the iPod app.

      Does the rotator work on a iPhone 4?

      Home page is awesome, no more white screen.

      3) After downloading ur app, respiring.
      4) Then grab a Phillips head screw driver and cram it as far up the charge/dock hole u can.
      5) Leave it on the table and stand above it.
      6) Drop your pants and bend your knees so that your B hole is above the home-screen button.
      7) Proceed to "download" all over the screen.
      8) Carry the phone out to the driveway and leave it there.
      9) Drive over the device and I guarantee you will have folders in folders, on folders, over folders, new tire mark multitasking background and what seems to be... In my opinion... A more user-friendly version of folders-in-folders!

      Folders in Folders is pants! Its a poor effort and the developer trying to grab money before FolderEnhancer comes out later this month (supposedly) and eats it alive.

      A homepage in safari would be nice, but it'd be nicer if it were free....

      These are all great apps (I already had the iPhone one) but i'm really not liking the way almost all the apps that have been showcased on here are PAID.
      PAID=not the concept JB was based on!

      Sorry about that some apps are fine paid, but I wish you would do like an all free app update once.

      I've been using FoldersInFolders (with GridLock installed) now since it was released. I've already had two updates to it, the first of which undid all of my organizing. Had to rebuild the folder system - but the second update didn't change my layout.
      The only thing I've noticed with the tweak so far (although on a quick test just now it doesn't seem to still be doing it) is that if you open a folder, then another folder inside that folder, and then use an app - like camera for example - when you close the camera app, the folder will still be open, and the icons will be unclickable until you exit all the way out to the home screen, then reenter that folder. I haven't had any other problems with it, yet. I've read other posts saying it changed the GridLock layout - I didn't have that issue. 3GS, 4.0.1

      And UniScribe is neat. I haven't needed to use it yet - I've only been annoyed by it opening all the time by accident. But I like the idea of it being there when I eventually will need it. Just wish I could specify what action opens it.

      I dont know why people assume just because u jailbreak your device everything should be free..

      Jailbreaking opens doors to things we can do to the phone we couldnt do. Devs work hard on making these tweaks and apps..They need their hard work to pay off too, as well as their time..

      it will be a chain reaction

      if people dont buy these apps, they stop developing and thats when good apps and tweaks die off and stop development because only those who appreciate it PAID for it.

      Either I don't understand Cydia or it's the most user hostile app site there is. No support, garbage website, can't read the order screen without a magnifying glass. I have paid for GOC Pro (twice), it's cleared Amazon and I still see Payment status pending on Cydia. Of course, there's no customer service to ask the question of. Why they closed down Rock before they got their act together is beyond me.

      LSRotator looks neat but until SBRotator works properly in iOS 4 I'll be waiting... Has anybody had any luck with SBRotator... All of my icons overlap and the folders become almost unusable. Does this dev have a web page? It would be great if when rotated if SBRotator would adjust the layout to 5 or 6 icons per row and 3 columns and perhaps dynamically scale down icon sizes so they don't overlap... Alot of apps from this dev still need some work but do however show excellent potential...

      Lsrotator plus lockinfo equals crash everytime the device locks. Both devs are aware of this according to tweets. I uninstalled as fast as I installed.

      If you don't want FolderInFolders anymore contact paypal and file a complant and get your money back. I bet that will get the devs attention

      Lockinfo and lsrotator does not crash my phone. Although the theme does not center when it's rotated to landscape. Everything gets pushed off to the left.
