    Default 'PageJumps' Makes it Easy to Move to Specific Home Screen Pages


    Those of you that have a lot of applications on your iOS devices' home screens might find a new free jailbreak tweak called PageJumps by iOS developer RiDan useful.

    PageJumps is a remake of SpringJumps and was created to be compatible with iOS 6. The tweak allows you to tap on a numeric icon on the home screen to quickly jump over to the home screen page that coincides with the number on the icon. The PJ0 icon takes you to SpotLight, and the PJ1-PJ8 icons take you to the home screen pages that the numbers represent – PJ1 is your first page, PJ2 is your second page, etc.

    The icons work fine when they are stashed away in an application folder on your home screen too, which means you don't have to have all of these application icons running rampant on your home screen like we do in the screenshots above.

    Not only will the tweak let the user easily jump from one page to another without having to swipe multiple times, but the user can easily enable and disable the paging animation when tapping on the icons by holding down on the PJ0 icon. This won't disable the paging animation when swiping through pages – only when tapping on PageJumps icons. The user will receive an alert banner whenever the animation is enabled or disabled, as shown below:



    PageJumps doesn’t come with any options to configure, and it can be downloaded from the BigBoss repository right now.

    Name: PageJumps
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.4-11
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: RiDan

    I don't agree. I know a lot of themes that use SpringJumps for a better user experience. So called nav-themes. I've always loved them. Except for the setup, haha. I kinda see this as the update of SpringJumps we never got, and man, it's hella handy! (At least, if it's possible to have more icons of, for example page 8, than just 1.)

    Really pointless. Takes up an icon slot for each page, and doesn't tell you what the page is (do you memorize what's on pg7?)
    Better: a single icon that you press and it presents a list of pages to jump to, AND you can customize the name of the page. So have a page of media apps, a page of utilities, etc.

    The tweak you're looking for is called OverBoard by Ryan Petrich.

    And I really like OverBoard.

    I really enjoyed nav themes. Maybe using this tweak, we'll be able to have nav themes on our phones again

    I still use Spring Jumps and noticed it behaves very erratically on io6, so I'm glad to have this option.

    For a free tweak this makes a great replacement for springjumps in ios 6.

    Tip! You can rename the shortcut icons from PJ0, PJ1 etc by renaming the app name using ifile. Find the applications folder, find PJ1.app and rename to Home.app etc. Respring and enjoy your named pages.

    FYI, enabling the page animation wasn't working for me (the PJ0 icon just went to wobble). The dev responded to my inquiry quickly and said that it was an iOS6 quirk and that the animation would begin working after a reboot or two. It did indeed.

    Also, I love this app. To add to Crimzion's comment, you can also change the icon to indicate what page you're going to. Home, Games, Photos, etc. It opens up a LOT of theming space.

    So we get only 8 jumps? I will need at least 10 :/

    EDIT: dev isn't sure whether he'll add more at any point
