    Default [Review] Unfold - A Neat Folding Animation for Unlocking iOS


    iOS' slide to unlock feature has been nice while it lasted, but it’s time to bring some new unlocking animations to iOS. A really nice, new animation can be found for free in Cydia today, dubbed Unfold by iOS developer Jonas Gessner. The tweak will make it so you can fold your lock screen and see all of SpringBoard’s contents under the unfolding animation. The animation is smooth and beautiful and works with any iOS 5 devices except for the iPad, however the developer hints via Cydia that iPad support could be on the horizon.

    Unfold does completely away with the slide to unlock bar, and replaces it with just an arrow followed by text saying, “fold to unlock.” Swiping along the text will begin the unfold animation, and you can drag it back to its original position to cancel the unlocking of iOS. Unfold works completely with lock screen tweaks such as Ori Kadosh’s Camera Grabber for iOS 5 and also Intelliborn’s IntelliScreenX.



    If you are using a pass code for iOS, the animation will display a pass code input screen under the fold instead of your SpringBoard. This is good since it doesn't mess with the animation of the tweak and it continues to have the security you would expect from iOS. The tweak works either when applications are open or when you are on your home screen, as whatever you have opened will appear under the fold as the animation takes place.

    The tweak doesn’t have any options to configure as installing it will immediately put the animation into effect. The only way to discontinue the animation is by uninstalling the tweak. Since Unfold is a free jailbreak tweak and the animation is just drop-dead gorgeous, we would have to recommend this tweak for anyone that likes adding a little bit of style to their iOS device.

    Name: Unfold
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 5, iPhone or iPod touch
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Jonas Gessner
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    Tried it this morning. Cool tweak but had a few little bugs. One was my dashboard X widgets would disappear needing a reboot to bring them back. Not sure which tweak is to blame. Another is I wasn't able to turn off an alarm that I had set when it went off with this tweak installed.

    Just reboot using home button and power, when it comes back up will take you to the home screen.

    Then go into cydia and uninstall it.

    Check how much RAM you have because I think this tweak eats up quite a bit. I usually get about 350mb on my 4s and now with this installed I only can get up to 310 or 315.

    Hey, I noticed this free tweak yesterday in "changes" so I downloaded.
    Works great on 5.1 iphone 4 with Envy HD theme - it just folds away the LS without fuss.
    Brilliant. Someone thinking outside the square again.

    1.0.1b2 on my repo fixes pretty much all known bugs. The Dashboard X incompatibility is caused by a bug in the DBX code not in my code!

    I liked the look of this but have my lockscreen completely disabled and am not on ios5... So I showed it to my girl and she liked it and installed the tweak... Worked well except it sucked with notification center having to be slid up first... So we disabled her Notification Center (which she didn't like and I don't like hence me not updating to iOS5 yet) and her passcode and now it looks real clean on her lockscreen... We even got rid of the Unfold stock slider and text... She loves it! I would be super stoked to have it if I had a lockscreen and 5.0...

    I don't know if anyone has had the issue that I ran into. When using unfold with Dashboard X every now and then it makes the widgets disappear when you unlock and then springboard crashes.
