    Default [Review] ReflectAll - Dock-Like Reflections for All Apps


    Do you really like the way the iOS dock causes a reflection of the application icons? Have you ever wanted that feature all throughout iOS? A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed ReflectAll by iOS developer Philippe brings the dock-like application reflections all throughout SpringBoard including the home screen and within folders.

    The appearance change is as major or as minor as you would like it to be. The tweak comes with no options for configuring the reflections, however the wallpaper makes all the difference. The darker your wallpaper is, the easier it will be to see the reflections of the lighter application icons overlaying your wallpaper, but the harder it will be to see the reflections of the darker application icons. For lighter wallpapers, the opposite happens, as the light wallpaper actually makes the transparent overlays of the lighter application icons harder to see, but makes the transparent overlays of the darker applications easier to see. For this reason, picking a wallpaper right in the middle of light and dark is optimal for this tweak.

    Right off the bat, the tweak seems to cause a loss in frame rate when paging through your home screen, which basically yields to a laggier user experience from the home screen. Itís not horribly noticeable unless you watch closely, however itís enough to cause a double-take.

    Whether or not universal application icon reflections seem like a useful modification for iOS, it may be worth taking a look at since itís free. The modification is small, but can make a large difference if you are a stickler for appearance. For some, the modification may appear to be silly since there is nothing for the application icons to reflect off of, while on the dock the applications reflect on the dock. Since there are no options to configure, the only way to disable the tweak is to uninstall it.

    Name: ReflectAll
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Repo: BigBoss

    What did it change ? I can't see anything different from the "before" and "after" images they are the same as I can see. What's the difference ?

    The top icons have the reflection effect. It's impossible to not see it.

    Love it! Not only goes well with doubledock, but adds a little something to appcenter..
