RippleBoard adds flair to the iOS home screen


Looking to switch up the iOS home screen with one free jailbreak tweak? RippleBoard has a variety of functions that can be installed in one easy swoop. First of all, there's an option to make all icons and folders round on the home screen. This alone is an interesting enough feature. Dig deeper, and there are more options.

Ripples can be enabled, which automatically match the color of individual app icons. These animations radiate out from the icon, and indicate which apps are running. Ripples can also be enabled simply for fun, to register each touch on the home screen. Last but not least, ripples can also be configured to appear when launching an app.

When all of the icons are changed to round under Settings -> RippleBoard, and running apps are periodically sending out color-matched ripples on the home screen, it can be an interesting reminder of what's running in the background.

RippleBoard is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for free. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3-8.3 with TaiG, or learn how to jailbreak iOS 8.0-8.1.2. Those with older firmware can use Pangu (iOS 7.1) or evasi0n 7 (iOS 7.0) to jailbreak.
