Review: Homescreen Contacts

In your family and friends there are some people who are more close to you and whom you often contact.

This new tweak known as Homescreen Contacts allows you to put your contacts on the home screen of your iPhone so that you can easily contact/text/mail them right from your HomeScreen. After installation you will see an additional option in each contact in the contacts app (this is important since you won’t be able to see the button in the phone app) known as “Add to Home Screen”. When you tap on this the contact will be added to your HomeScreen.

 

The contact icon added to your HomeScreen is similar to an app icon which when pressed gives you all the information of the associated contact.

Taping on “send message” will open up the write new message on your phone on the messages app. Taping on the mobile number will place a call for you. Taping on postal address will result in the native Map app and giving you the location of a particular place. If you have assigned the contact a picture the same picture will be shown on the contacts icon on the HomeScreen.

Suppose if you ever want to delete someones contact from your HomeScreen all you have to do is enter wiggle mode by holding down any app icon for a few minutes and then you will see the minus sign on the contact icon, go ahead and tap on them to remove any contact from your HomeScreen.

HomeScreen Contacts is a nice and useful tweak to have in your phone as it helps you a lot to contact those whom you often do. If you are interested in Homescreen Contacts you can go ahead and purchase it for $1.99 from Cydia under the BigBoss repo.

Review: HomeSpringPage

Have you guys ever wanted a clean, plain page on your SpringBoard with nothing on it except the dock? Well if your thinking was this bizarre, then a new tweak known as HomeSpringPage takes care of your thoughts. The tweak is a very simple one and does nothing except adding an extra page in your SpringBoard as the first page. You can not decide the position of the blank page, it will always be the first one. After installing the tweak it will automatically shift all your apps to the next page, but if you want you can always re-arrange your apps on the blank page.

I don’t see any point of this tweak except that if you want to use it with Dashboard X as a page for your widgets.

If you are interested in HomeSpringPage then you can go ahead and install it from Cydia for free.

Review: RainBoard

RainBoard is a new jailbreak tweak which makes it rain on your SpringBoard, well not exactly rain but yeah sort of. It makes 9 icons fall from up to down/down to up, depending on your choice. The tweak adds two button on the SpringBoard which can be hidden and shown via an Activator action. In the setting panel you will see nine option (18 sliders) with all these sliders you can configure the speed of the animation.

 

You can even change the icons to any custom image you want by placing the images to /var/mobile/Library/RainBoard and then rename them.

Check out RainBoard in action below:


Personally I think RainBoard would have been a much better tweak if instead of icons there were actually rain drops falling continuously.But thats just me, if you are interested in RainBoard you can go ahead and install it from Cydia under the BigBoss repo.

Review: TopLabels

Hmm… I’m really sorry to start of the review like this but, the tweak TopLabels sucks! :/

TopLabels is a new tweak which simply places the app icon labels on top of the app icons, and by top I mean on the app icon, not above the app icon as it should do. There is really no point of getting this tweak unless you are using a theme which would look better by placing the label on the app icon.

Check out the video of TopLabels below:

I’m not gonna ask what you think about this one.
