  • [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!

      While Graviboard does sound a bit boring and useless to some, I find it funny to act like I dropped my device and say "oops, my icons broke..."

      This app is so cool! Is not a must have, since it doesn't add any key functionality that other tweaks do. But it does something nothing else can, and that's great.

      Good luck!

      I always liked the effect that somebody made for the first iPhone released in 2007 with a "video" where you could see the iPhone icon apps moving freely around the screen when "shaking" the device and saying: "It's my new iPhone! I'm gonna keep it! "

      Looks like the original Graviboard and maybe, it feels even smoother now on iOS 5. The decision to not include the dock icons to join the fun is acceptable, especially when you're using Scrollingboard or Infinidock where you have a plethora of icons on your dock. A must have tweak for power users! Thanks @modmyi, @BouchardAnthony and @conradev.
