    I love this tweak, but it doesn't work on apps that are inside folders (not sure if it is a FolderEnhancer problem or Velox problem). The temperatures seems to be off on the weather app too. I also wish you were able to close the "folder" by tapping on a blank spot of the folder. I've gotten so use to tapping to close a folder in FolderEnhancer, it's hard to go back to hitting the home button to close it.

    Its a neat tweak, don't think I'd spend more than $2 on it though. I mainly use it for Settings toggles, the stopwatch addon that was released today, and quick compose. What I'd love is an Any.DO extension, so I can instantly view my daily reminders. I thought of this after seeing the CARROT addon released today.

    Also using velox on the music app crashes springboard without fail.

    My music app isn't crashing at all. I do wish we could customize what is seen for each app, though (eg. Arrange Settings.app Toggles; Timer, Alarm, etc. in Clock.app)

    Also, they need to implement a 'tap inside window to close' feature cuz pushing the Home Button is a pain.

    Great tweak and I only imagine it getting better. One thing that I'd say I'd like to see updated is the option of reading the text when using the quick reply. I click on the banner when someone sends me a text and it goes straight to the quick reply option but doesn't show me what they wrote so I have no idea what I'm replying to! Love the tweak though!

    Also do I have to add a source in order to get the Addons (Velox) folder to show in Cydia?

    You're right, it only crashes if the music app is... suspended? Whatever the right term for it is. If I have had the music app open recently Velox-ing the music icon works perfectly, but if the process is killed and I velox the icon I get a black homescreen that I need to use Auxo's respring toggle to fix.

    This will have a lot of potential I think because there is so much you could develop off of this like widget pinning.. Should be implemented into ios 7

    I keep most of my apps in a folder. Because of that, this tweak would be useless for me. And until it's confirmed that it does indeed work with apps inside folders, I'm not going to spend two bucks on it.

    I suppose I could've elaborated more in my initial post. That's my fault.

    I don't see how opening apps like this is useful.
    I can however see how certain views are like the quick settings and the music controls. But other than that its just all flash. Looks really cool and smooth though.

    Great tweak. Only problems I see:

    - battery drain is painfully bad
    - can't open apps in velox view inside folders
    - complaints about camera and facebook having to be on top row . . . I haven't tested, but they seem like real issues.

    Weather doesnt update properly. Notes will not sync (iCloud) if created in Velox window, and the bug list goes on... Love the idea, hope to see fixes for these and above issues.
