    Default 'GlowDock' Adds a Glowing Aura to Your iOS 7 Dock Icons


    Sometimes it's just those small touches that can make the home screen look better. For those of you looking to make your iOS 7 device stand out from the rest, a new free jailbreak tweak called GlowDock by iOS developer Vatsal Manot is now available in Cydia.

    As shown above, GlowDock adds a white glowing aura to the application icons on your dock, making them stand out a little more from your home screen application icons. We'd say that GlowDock definitely gives the stock iOS 7 home screen a little more pizzazz.

    GlowDock doesn't come with any options to configure, but it sure would be an improvement to the tweak if the user was able to change the color, transparency, and even the spread of the glowing aura to their liking.

    If you want to give GlowDock a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: GlowDock
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-2
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Vatsal Manot
    Editor's Rating:  3/5

    I would think most tweaks would be compatible. The BIG hold up was the Mobile Substrate. Not to say you shouldn't test. How is the battery life with this one? May have to give it a go..
