Thread: Orbit vs Overboard - iPhone Expose Wannabe Showdown

  1. #81
    Orbit 1.1.4 made my iPhone unstable so I finally gave in and picked up Overboard... man is it faster!

    Although Orbit is more Apple-esque, Overboard is much snappier and more stable.

    How many more extra springboard pages can you get with Overboard?

    Edit: Found a YouTube video where the person shows at least 14 pages and indicated the additional pages are limitless.

    Yep theyre unlimited with overboard. in settings you can chose either 2x2 3x3 or 4x4 display and if you have more pages then that then you can just scroll down. I actually have 16 pages with 5 column springboard, 6 icon dock and illumine theme installed and all of it shows up with overboard (over 350 apps!) which i cannot say the same for orbit

    Just stumbled upon Overboard by accident yesterday (been using Orbit). Overboard kicks ***, IMO.

    Is there any way to activate Overboard directly from an application?

    Instead of pressing the home button and it going to the springboard, then pressing it again to get overboard... is there a way to just have the home button activate overboard regardless of application?

    Thanks!

    I decided to just switch from Overboard to Categories+CategoriesSB. Much happier now.

    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...

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.

According to his twitter feed, Steven feels that adding a prefpane implies that the app is too complicated. Of course, this is likely because Overboard beat him to the punch and he's kinda jealous.

    Overboard is faster, lets user choose if we want the spotbright page, has more ways to invoke it, displays the icons more clearly, and most importantly lets user extend the number of springboard pages beyond just 11 pages.

The problem I see is there are so many other mods now that use the "Home" button that maybe Orbit should make use of other means to recall. Maybe "gestures" can activate it. I've docked it in SBSettings to make it available, since I also use mQuickDo and Kirikae.

    However, it still lags Overboard in visual beauty and functionalities. Overboard can be invoked also by pinching, gives the option of showing the dock, gives the option to extend the number of springboard pages.

    I think Orbit has a little uphill battle here. The first version of Overboard got everything right the first time. Orbit is immediately on the defensive, playing the catchup game. It would have to catch up with Overboard's functionalities, and think of something that Overboard does not have. This is going to be tough.

    Overboard does.
