[Giveaway] Flowtation Brings A Cool New Notification Center Animation to iOS!
Looking for more cool tweaks for your newly jailbroken iPhone 4S? Try Flowtation!
Notification Center, the widget and notification manager that ships with iOS 5 is pretty amazing. We have seen numerous attempts to make it more useful through adding widgets and making it available on our lock screen with IntelliScreenX, but one thing that we haven't seen yet is the ability to change the animations that appear when you invoke it. That is where a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Flowtation by iOS developer Ori Kadosh comes in. It makes it so that instead of seeming like you're pulling the whole Notification Center GUI (graphical user interface) down over your home screen, it actually pushes your home screen down and replaces the screen with it. Okay, maybe describing animations isn't my major in college, but here's a video that describes the animation better than I ever could:
Flowtation is an amazing tweak because it is the first of its kind. It pioneers Notification Center invoking animations; something that we have not seen yet. The idea comes from a concept designed by Max Rudberg. The tweak is a little different than the actual concept because to make it appear like the concept there would have to be some major changes to Notification Center itself. The concept made it so that you could still see part of the home screen when you pulled Notification Center down.
Flowtation comes with some extensive settings such as enabling and disabling the tweak at your leisure; I always like to see that switch in jailbreak tweaks because it's more convenient than installing and uninstalling a tweak when I want to disable it it temporarily. You also have the option to change how your home screen reacts to the change. You can leave it at its default where the home screen is always solid even when you're pushing it down, you can make it so that the home screen fades out as you're pulling down (as the video shows), or you can make it so that the home screen is faded as soon as you start pulling notification center down. There's an adjustable slider so that you can manage that setting to your heart's content.
Yes, flowtation works on the iPhone 4S too. It will also work on any other jailbroken iOS 5 iPhone or iPod touch (unfortunately no iPad support), but only iOS 5 because it's the only version of iOS that has Notification Center. The best part about using it is that it doesn't cause lag in Notification Center. It works completely with IntelliScreenX and many other Notification Center tweaks and widgets. At this point in time, there are no known compatibility issues. Check it out!

i would like to win Flowtation because i would like to tweak my notification center animated and as he states that it doesn't cause any lag would be wonderful and a must have tweak for IOS 5. i also think a good addon for Flowtation that u can add it it is add more fadings and u can probably add a way we can slide it and does a circle or something like that etc...
thank you and my cydia number is #838050

I need flowtation because I need to try it out with the tweaks that remove the background of notification center. Flowtation is better because it lets you scroll up and down and sideways! Combined with infiniboard, this tweak will be the envy of even Apple itself! Please win me!

This looks pretty interesting.
On a side note how does SBS work on an iPhone 4S? Is it buggy or kill signal at all?

Ori is a great developer that is also very nice because he is doing a giveaway for an awesome tweak that he made. I should win because i want to learn from his work. This tweak really gives the Notification Center a real feel of what iOS really should be. One thing i recommend is to add an option instead of fading the current screen, but making it brighter so you could choose between both of these options. my cydia account number is 2820476

Good luck for all of you! I'm glad to know you like Flowtation :-)
(If you don't see it in Cydia go into the Changes tab and tap the refresh button at the top left corner and let it load. This tweak was released a few hours ago so chances are Cydia wasn't refreshed since then)

Quite a nice animation. If you could drag it up and down like zephyr, it would be quite cool.

I don't really NEED it, but rather I would like to improve upon something that Apple didn't think through properly.

This looks like an amazing tweak but I am more concerned with what SBSettings they are using and HOW they can hide the SBSettings in the Notification Center, but have it show when they pull down for a second time? Please help!

Anthony Bouchard, your YouTube links do not work. It says safari can't open the page URL link wasn't found.
This is not the only issue sometimes a link posted by you is in a raw code/ in the wrong format.
You've been told this numerous time and they've fallen on deaf hears.
Please sort it out !!!

I bought it to try it out for myself. (it's a buck, why not) and I gotta be honest I don't really understand why a lot of you need or want this tweak. If I could transfer it to one of you, it's all yours lol

Notification Center tweaks are what every iDevive owner should have in their arsenal of tweaks and I would really like to add this to mine! Cydia# 1608333
