  • [GIVEAWAY] Graviboard 2 Released With iOS 5 Support

    Graviboard is a classic jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Conrad Kramer that adds physics to your iDevice’s home screen. Graviboard has been awaiting iOS 5-compatibility for some time now being that it only worked on iOS 4. It adds physics by providing you with the illusion that gravity can affect your home-screen’s icon placement. With today’s release of Graviboard 2, you can now experience these remarkable effects on your iOS 5 devices just as you had missed them from your older devices.

    As the screenshot above shows, the icons are all over the place. The effects of Graviboard only work when you toggle Graviboard on with an Activator action. After that, the motion kicks in and you can stop all of Graviboard’s effects by simply pressing the home button and the home screen icons will neatly re-appear in their proper order and positions in a very pleasantly animated way. The preferences for Graviboard are also extensive:

    The preferences encompass being able to select an Activator action for invoking Graviboard, the ability to automatically enable Graviboard, the ability to launch applications while Graviboard is making your icons move around in 3-D space, and the ability to swipe through your home screen pages even while the icons are moving around. The include dock option which we used to be able to take advantage of in iOS 4 seems to be grayed out and inoperative whenever you have allow page swiping enabled.

    In the simulation settings of the Graviboard preferences, you can adjust the effect of gravity, bounciness, and friction using the sliders provided to you. The gravity slider will make the application icons appear either heavier or lighter. The bounciness slider will make the application icons bounce either further or shorter. Then finally, the friction slider will make the applications icons either slide easily past each other or make it more difficult for them to slide around. The last preference pane has to do with how your application icons react to your finger when you toss them around.

    Graviboard 2 doesn’t feel too much different from the original Graviboard, however it doesn’t have the HUD (heads up display) anymore and you cannot include the dock icons in the jumble like we used to be able to while paging. Graviboard 2 has been almost a complete re-write for the application and we are very excited to see it progress to another iOS milestone. It's a very fun application. If you want to win a copy (a $2.99 value), follow the directions below. Conrad was nice enough to let us give away FIVE copies of Graviboard 2!

      I feel like this is more realistic. The physics seem more real, probably because of Box2D. I must say, it i great to have it back on my iPad...

      Finally, you can hold the power of gravity in the palm of your hand (or hands). Well kind of. Cool tweak for some fun.

      This widget thing seems really lame.

      I can't access it from the ModMyi application and don't understand why they have it sorry to poop on the party.

      Graviboard 2 will be so wonderful. I know when I tried it the first time all I wanted to do was go to my springboard and activate it. I'm sure that with more time, the tweak will get better. I'm really supportive of this tweak and I want to do anything I can to make it better if that means feed back or comments on how it could be better.i think it would be better if the folders could also move if that isn't already supported. Another thing that could make it better is if the apps could bounce to other pages. I just think the tweak looks fenominal & I've never won one of this Giveaways so if you picked me I would be truly grateful and would send any feedback to make the tweak all that it can be.
