Boover Updated With Badge Sizing Options
Earlier this week, ModMyi showed you
a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Boover
by iOS developer Jonathan Winger Lang
that allowed you to adjust the location of your application icons' notification badges. The tweak has since seen a great new update to version 1.5-1, allowing you to now adjust the size of your notification badges, as well as the location.
The notification badge sizing options are located in the Settings application under the Boover preferences pane. The sizing options will be all the way at the bottom when you scroll down:
You will be able to manually adjust the slider yourself, or you can tap on the make bigger
or make smaller
buttons to adjust the size of your notification badges by increments of 0.1. The reset to 1
button sets the notification badge size back to the default size. Each time you make a change to the size of your notification badges, you will need to respring your device for the changes to take effect.
The screenshot at the top of this writing shows you the application badges scaled between 0.0 and 2.0 at .5 increments. The developer recommends staying under 2.0 and above 0.0 to avoid any issues, as the new features is still technically experimental.
The new features are certainly welcome, considering the tweak remains free. If you’re interested in hitting up the new features that Boover has to offer, you can head over to the BigBoss repository in Cydia and find the tweak available for download. Boover is great for anyone that loves any kind of customization options.
