waste of money IMHO
If you have springsorter, most of the icons you need or use are in the first two pages so there's really no point.

Is this compatible with themes that use springjumps or landscape themes? (Like iNspired)

overboard is da shizznit!!!!!!

havnt had orbit. only because of its initial shortcomings. overboard works great. with features most spoke about and desired by myself included, that are not on orbit.
the only minor complaint is the pinch gesture. slightly hard to initiate. say VS. an expand gesture or slide gesture. just my opinion. whatya all think?
steven stole this from ocean engineering> you tube. check it out son.

I'd love to update this post to compate Orbit 1.1 but the developer won't get back to me. Will do when I can get my hands on it. This should be interesting.
Is there proof that the coding was stolen for this?

[QUOTE=shwnwlkns;5039146]Sigh. How ignorant can people be? Ocean Engineering asked Steven if he could do this and he took the challenge. Ryan on the other hand stole Orbit, by code, and adding things. Good job, I guess.
please now.....not only had they allready done it...they had done it better. better yet...all the features ilustrated in their app [that werent in orbit] are in overboard....
who are you really shwnwlkns?...hiding behind 3 post acting like a forum guru.

Had Orbit. Like it. Got Overboard. Like it way better.

How can I be hiding? They didn't do anything. Please read what stolen means, and then you should be able to speak wisely, at least I hope. If I steal a burger from McDonalds and put bacon on it, it doesn't make me a great creator,

Just installed Orbit 1.1 from Cydia. Much improved!!

I'm not out to sway. Hell, I don;t need to. Orbit made 3000 dollars so far, and Overboard hasn't made 100. Orbit 1.1 was released, much improved, more features, quicker boot times. Weird, Orbit seems to be better, but Overboard is still behind.
Also, it seems the stereotype of people from southern states having bad punctuation and grammar is true with your constant use of ellipsis's. Now THATS annoying.

Overboard. By far. A bigger question for me though, is the lock screen war...so many options now, but which is best? And which will be best after a bit more development?

I bought both Orbit and Overboard, and HIGHLY recommend the latter. Steven Troughton-Smith will never get another red ****ing cent from me and I sincerely hope his immaturity and inability to finish what he starts makes an impression on others.

Orbit 1.1 is good.
Dynamic sizing, genius. It instantly fills out the whole space.
(No need for options to choose columns, way smarter)
Finally, my suave icons are showing.
The boot time has improved, significantly faster.
there's also search page and home button support.
So guys, if you've already have Orbit, check out the update first before wasting your money on Overboard...

What's with the Spotlight page in Orbit now? Overboard gives you the option to show/hide it, but Orbit doesn't.
edit: Again with the lying and misrepresentation. I've attached a screenshot of the follow-up to the tweet posted above, in which Steven Troughton-Smith proclaims that Orbit and Overboard have the "same features" ... Now, unless I'm blind, there's no way to change Orbit's settings. By settings I mean the double-tap home button binding, and the Spotlight page showing in Orbit. Overboard allows you to control both of these. It also allows you to hide the app icon, invoke with a pinch gesture, and theme the app. Orbit doesn't seem to allow any of these things.
Very lame. Not so much stroughtonsmith's apparent inability to figure out how to add this stuff, but the fact that he flat-out LIES about it. Not cool at all.

I first bought Orbit. Found it very useful, but a bit slow at times on my 3Gs. It would also often 'miss' a page when loading up (always the page it was loading from). Then I bought Overboard, and the speed increase is significant. I like the selectable options in Overboard, like showing / hiding its icon on the Springboard, showing the doc, various ways of initiating, etc.
Orbit 1.1 seems faster than v1.0, but no selectable options (I don't want to see the search screen, and I don't want to use the home button double tap for Orbit)
So for now Overboard seems better to me in speed & functionality.

you have nothing to prove
You are both incredibly talented coders. You both are well aware of this fact. Those who are calling you a thief are nothing short of untalented losers, who see one program and assume everything else is a copy. You have nothing to prove to them. I thank BOTH of you for contributing to the iPhone platform. Without people like BOTH of you, I'd still be stuck on a motorola RAZR. Thanks for making the iPhone great!!!!
