If you're a fan of the Slideshow feature in the Photos application of iOS, and you're bored with the same-old animations that you have to use all of the time, then you may appreciate a new free jailbreak tweak called Segue by iOS developer lordscotland.

With Segue, you will be given additional slideshow animations to choose from. Some of them, as the developer notes, are Apple's documented effects, while some of them are Apple's un-documented effects.

When you go into the Photos application and you attempt to begin a slideshow after installing this tweak, you'll be able to choose from a variety of new animations; 11 of them, to be exact:



After installing the tweak, your animation list is extended to include all of the following:


  • Cube
  • Dissolve
  • Ripple
  • Wipe across
  • Wipe down
  • Camera iris
  • Flip
  • Move in
  • Page curl
  • Page un-curl
  • Push
  • Random
  • Reveal
  • Ripple effect
  • Rotate
  • Suck effect


Now you can enjoy any of these animations while you have a slideshow going!

Segue doesn't have any options to configure. It's also an open source jailbreak tweak, so if you're interested in viewing the tweak's source code, you can head over to Bitbucket at this link to check it out! Segue is a free download right now from Cydia's BigBoss repository.
