SmoothBoard Allows You To Scroll Smoothly Through Pages
Once again we have another great tweak that has been developed by Aaron Ash called SmoothBoard. Last week I talked about InfiniDock, which enabled scrolling within the Dock. Today we are treated with a similar concept, and even comes without a price tag.
Installing this tweak will allow you to scroll through every page without it locking to each single page one at a time and having to swipe a gazillion times. OverBoard and Orbit brought us the ability to see all our pages, but this is one step further, because now you can scroll from one end to the other incredibly fast. It's so smooth its almost fun to just scroll back and forth. (on 3GS at least)
Springboard doesn't 'lock' when scrolling. A big swipe can scroll through multiple pages instead of only one page per swipe. If you stop scrolling Springboard won't "snap" to the nearest page, it will just stay in between pages.
There are a few minor bugs. (like springboard snapping to the nearest page when an app is opened) But it does not hinder any functionality, and you can still move icons around just fine.
This tweak is available in Cydia & Rock for Free! Check it out and let me know what you think!

So this is why he stopped providing updates to Multifl0w. He was busy working on another app I'll never bother with.
Did like Multifl0w while it lasted. Free-flowing was one of the things I liked about it because you could switch between apps easier, but ProSwitcher just got it so right. Didn't think I'd like the pages sticking, but it's so much nicer looking.
Thanks for a great app, Aaron. But you fell a little behind. Should have focussed on Multifl0w rather than work on other things.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
If I helped you, be sure to press the Thanks! button over there ->
If I didn't, press it anyway.

I have a 2G, and after having 9 pages of apps, this is one useful little setting. I can easily get to the end with one stroke, but it seems to lag here and there at times.

This app does not show up in cydia on my 3gs, but was found and downloaded on 3g just fine.
Rebooted phone, still not showing up in cydia on 3gs...
01-14-2010, 07:02 PM #11ive been wanting this
not exactly what i was hopping for how about some settings ?

good concept, beats the hell out of spring jumps lol..
one problem i have with it is that if you dont stop just right on the first page the spotlight keyboard pops up and covers the screen.

I like it. I have and use the dock app from nate true and this is just a neat gimmick. I do overswipe but it's still cool.

That's pretty sweet. Plus, the app is free.

If I have time I'd like to write a blog post about how I did it and post the source. I feel like there isn't much out there on how to get started coding a tweak like this, and I'm sure there are people that have cool tweaks in mind but they just don't know where to start.

I have just downloaded this and I see no icon nor settings tab, normally this would not surprise me accept for the fact that it does not seem to be enabled. I have reinstalled it with no change. Is there something I am missing?If you wanna thank me hit "Thanks" in the lower left of my post. If you would like to follow me on twitter click here

It crashed my 3GS. I don't think it plays nice with infinidock. Tried it, neat, but uninstalled. Sticking with overboard.
