    Default [Review] HomeSpringPage - Leave Your First Home Screen Page Blank


    While it may not be in everyone’s taste to have a blank home screen page at the beginning of the home screen pages, a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed HomeSpringPage by iOS developer deVbug will let you have a blank page as your first home screen page. While the tweak could seem quite useless and non-practical from a first glance, the tweak could actually be more useful than meets the eye.

    With the recently released jailbreak tweak Dashboard X, by iOS developer Ori Kadosh, HomeSpringPage could be a great jailbreak tweak because it gives you a free first home screen page to add any of your Notification Center or Dashboard X widgets to. In this sense, it gives you a nice opening page to unlock your iOS device to and then allows you to page through your home screen pages to reach your applications.

    With HomeSpringPage installed, you will be able to move applications to your first empty page, but if you remove the applications from the page, the empty page will not disappear after exiting jiggle mode. Normally when you have an empty page on your iOS home screen after moving applications, the empty page does not remain after you exit jiggle mode. By default, the tweak will move all of your first page applications to the second page of applications and move all other applications one page over accordingly.

    A nice feature for the future of this tweak could be the ability to choose which page will be empty instead of defaulting to the first page. This would give the user the flexibility to have either their widgets on their first page or their favorite applications and perhaps have their widgets on their second page instead. If you don't have Dashboard X installed, this tweak probably won't seem useful to you, but if you do have Dashboard X, then be sure to give it a shot!

    Note: the tweak does seem to cause a few seconds of lag when unlocking the iPod touch used in testing. The same issue was not present when installed on an iPhone.

    Default Hmmm
    I dunno... Looks ALOT like Android. Customizable home page, with all apps separate on another screen. Always thought the only real difference in appearance was that android opened to a home page, while IOS opened to all apps.

    Its actually HTML code that changes the lock-screen wallpaper every time the phone is unlocked.
    It runs on JB iPhones and requires a call to a directory of wallpapers that's to be used.
    I cant recall where/who made it. Will check my old phone and put up a link to the app/theme...

    Exactly what I was thinking. A great place to display my daughter's graduation picture without all the apps blocking it. It would be great if you can have display a separate wallpaper on the first page rather than all pages.

    I remember now that I had to fiddle around with the HTML and JS to get it to do what I wanted on the old iPhone 3Gs.
    Have fun...

    Is there a way how to add page LEFT of home screen (something like spotlight search screen) ?? So the original homescreen becomes second screen, but still system would recognize it as home...)? I want to have widgets close at hand (notes, searches etc...), but not to interfere with my normal work and not too see them after unlocking device or after double click home button. Thx for reply
