DisplayCandy: Jailbreak Tweak Adds Cool Animations While Opening, Closing & Switching Apps

A majority of jailbreak apps and tweaks available on Cydia, either add new features or enhance iOS’s functionality.

Occasionally though, we also come across jailbreak tweaks that merely serve to enhance the native visual experience of the iPhone. The newly launched jailbreak tweak called DisplayCandy fits this category.

DisplayCandy allows you to customize the animations when opening, closing and switching apps.

The jailbreak tweak offers 10 different options, including Cube, Flip, Page Curl and TV Tube (which is the default) that can be configured via the Settings app (Settings -> DisplayCandy -> Animation).

Check out the demo of the jailbreak tweak to see how it works (courtesy Tom Richardson of JailbreakNation):

While DisplayCandy may not exactly be a utility jailbreak tweak, it is nevertheless a very interesting add-on that may find appeal among a lot of users.

You can find DisplayCandy in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. It’s available on Cydia for $2.

If you do choose to install this jailbreak tweak, don’t forget to let us know how you find this tweak in the comments below.

    “You can find Barrel in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. It’s available on Cydia for $2.” I guess DisplayCandy is from the same people that made Barrel?? No wonder DC looks so smooth and fun. I am assuming that DC is also $2.

      Thanks for pointing it out, it’s fixed. You’re right. We remembered Barrel when we saw DC on Cydia. Barrel and DC fall in the same category of tweaks that enhance the visual experience.

        They have a very similar feel and look, both of which are excellent from what I can tell so far.

        Thanks, iPH!

    I downloaded the 1.0.0-2 version. Anything other than Default in the close animation causes the iPhone to respring into the safe mode. Otherwise, it looks super-cool!

    I dig it, and $2 isn’t much. I’d love to see it for the iPad.
