Unfold 2.0 Goes Live in Cydia
If you remember Unfold
by iOS developer Jonas Gessner
, then you also remember that it is a free jailbreak tweak that brings an unfolding animation to the lock screen rather than just having the boring unlock slider. The unfolding animation is super slick and smooth and looks amazing. Today, version 2.0 of Unfold has gone live in Cydia's BigBoss repository.
Version 2.0 of Unfold brings us a new vertical version of the animation, in addition to the already existing side-to-side animation. What's more is we get the option to choose the amount of slices in the folding animation. All of these options are housed inside of Unfold's preferences pane, which is found within the Settings application, as shown below:
From the preferences pane, you will be able to enable and disable the tweak on demand and choose to enable or disable the vertical version of the animation. At any time that the vertical animation is turned off, the horizontal animation will be effective (unless the tweak is disabled entirely). Picking the number of slices (4 by default) in the fold is done by tapping on the up or down arrows Ė you can have as little as 1 slice or as many as 10. Under this, you can change the text in the slider bar to anything you would like. The best part is, you donít even need to respring to save any changes you make.
Other smaller updates to Unfold include having semi-rewritten code, smoother animations, bug fixes, and a brand new icon for the preferences pane cell in the Settings application.
Having the ability to not only pick between a horizontal or vertical animation, but also the ability to pick the amount of slices you want in the animation is a pretty cool update. Unfold, as once a free tweak, continues to be a free tweak after the 2.0 update. This means newcomers can try the tweak out and current owners can also grab the update and try it out with no strings attached. Unfold does not work with the iPad.
