    Default Add A Useful Button to the Home Screen With 'DreamCoin'


    Don’t you wish that some things in iOS were just a little more convenient? A new free jailbreak tweak called DreamCoin by iOS developer ClausCartel attempts to make some useful iOS functions accessible from a button located on your home screen. Nothing gets much more convenient than the home screen – the place where you start out every time you unlock your iOS device.

    After installing DreamCoin, you will find a new icon on your home screen that looks like a golden coin. If you tap on it right after installing it, you will get an alert message that says, "Hello! Open Settings App and choose a dream for that coin!" Now that you know what it wants you to do, you can go into your settings application and you will find a preferences pane for DreamCoin. The preferences pane is illustrated for you below:



    So what kind of dream would you like the coin to have come true for you when you tap on it? Well unfortunately it won’t make you a millionaire, but you can have the coin icon on the home screen do something useful. Currently, the tweak comes with a limited list of options. Tapping on the coin icon from the home screen will invoke whatever option you choose. The tweak can currently carry out any of the following functions when you tap on the coin icon from the home screen:

    • Restart the device
    • Open DeviantArt from Mobile Safari
    • Open Google from Mobile Safari
    • Compose a new e-mail
    • Compose a new text message or iMessage
    • Toggle Wi-Fi on or off
    • Invoke Voice Control
    • Open an alert message that tells you the exact date
    • Open a text field that allows you to search for a Github user
    • Compose a new reminder from the Reminders application
    • Fix your caches

    The list of options is quite diverse and unique, offering a range of options from system toggles, to Web site shortcuts, to quick-composition abilities. While some users probably won’t find all of the options useful, the good news is that everyone can probably find the tweak to be useful for at least one of its options.

    The round coin icon does look a little bit goofy on the home screen being surrounded by a bunch of squarer icons, however it also helps the coin stand out so you can find it on the home screen very easily. The tweak certainly has the potential to be useful, but maybe adding more options to the preferences pane could make it better. It is a free tweak and it is worth checking out!

    Unless you lock your device while in app.

    It's Apptivator with it's own dedicated icon, only more limited. Shiny though.

    Not really. Some of the current list only saves 1-2 presses whereas uninstalling was several presses.
