Thread: 'DockWare' Lets You Globally Show Your Application Dock With Activator

    Default 'DockWare' Lets You Globally Hide or Show Your Application Dock With Activator

    If you've got your favorite applications on your Home Screen's application dock to make them easier to get to, like most of us do, then you're going to love this new jailbreak tweak called DockWare by iOS developer Brogan Miner.

    With DockWare, you will be able to access your application dock from anywhere in iOS, whether you're on the Home Screen, in an application, in the App Switcher, or in folders. This is done with an Activator action that you assign, and after a specific amount of time that you set, the dock will disappear.

    For example, if we're in the ModMyi application just reading some news, and we want to launch an application on our application dock, and we've assigned the Activator action of double-tapping on the Status Bar to revealing the application dock while in an application, then when we double-tap on our Status Bar from the ModMyi application, the application dock will reveal itself from the application at the bottom of the display, as shown above.

    DockWare also makes optional changes to the Home Screen for automatically hiding the application dock from the Home Screen and having you use your Activator action to reveal it manually. This feature is optional though, and if you prefer to have your application always visible on your Home Screen, it can be disabled:

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure its various options:

    From the Global cell, you can configure options for revealing your application dock anywhere but the Home Screen:

    From here, you can enable or disable accessing the application dock from within applications/App Switcher/folders, choose an Activator action for revealing it, and configure a time for the application dock to automatically hide itself. You can use the slider to adjust the time, or you can tap on the number in the slider and you can enter a number manually. Sliding the slider all the way down will disable auto-hide and make it so you have to invoke your Activator action again to hide the dock manually.

    From the Home Screen cell, you can configure the options for your application dock on your Home Screen:

    From here, you will be able to enable or disable the tweak on the Home Screen, as well as configure the animation that will occur when you reveal the application dock. You can pick from Push, Overlay, or Squeeze, but we find that Squeeze feels the most native.

    Finally, from the Advanced cell, you can configure blacklisting options:

    By default, all applications – both pre-installed and user-installed – are enabled. You can turn applications off in this list, and that will blacklist them. In other words, turning applications off makes it so you can't use this tweak in those applications.

    In all, this seems like a solid way to give yourself easy access to the applications on your application dock, and therefore giving you global shortcuts to the applications that you use most.

    If you would like to give DockWare a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99. The tweak does require iOS 7 to be installed, and if Activator is not installed already, it will be installed when you try to install DockWare.

    Solid tweak. I need to test it with springtomize and infinidock... Anyone know if these are compatible?
