PagePreview is a neat jailbreak tweak that allows you to preview all your iPhone’s Home screens from the current Home screen by just dragging your finger on the page indicator dots, right above the dock.
PagePreview has recently been updated by Elias Limneos to add support for iOS 5.1.1.
You can also jump to any Home screen, by dragging your finger on the page indicator dots and then releasing it when you see the preview of that Home screen.
The jailbreak tweak also allows you to launch an app from any Home screen in a similar way. Drag your finger to the app and release it to launch the app.
You can customize the look and feel of the Home screen preview such as the background, opacity etc via the Settings app.
PagePreview also supports PageNames, which is a free jailbreak tweak also developed by Elias that allows you to assign a name to the Home screen.
You can check out the demo of the jailbreak tweak in action below:
PagePreview is available on Cydia for $1.74.
It works exactly as advertised and even though it shrinks the size of the icon (and the label) in preview mode, the name of the apps are still quite readable.
PagePreview is a nice alternative to browse through your iPhone or iPad’s Home screens to launch an app.

Note: In case you’re wondering, SBRotator 5 ($2.99) is the name of jailbreak tweak that rotates iPhone’s SpringBoard in the video.
