ActiveDock: An OS X Inspired Dock For Your Jailbroken iPhone

Here’s a cool new jailbreak tweak.

The jailbreak tweak ActiveDock transforms your iPhone dock to look and feel like the OS X Mountain Lion dock.

ActiveDock adds the following features to your iPhone dock:

  • It also gives the iPhone dock the frost glass like appearance similar to dock in OS X Mountain Lion

  • It displays OS X Mountain Lion style light bar under the apps on the dock when you launch them. You can check out the screenshot below to get an idea of what I mean.

  • When you receive a new notification for an app in the dock, it will start bouncing to notify that that there is an new notification, similar to the way it does in OS X. It will keep bouncing until you don’t launch the app.

You can enable the app icon bouncing feature even when you launch an app via the Settings app (Settings -> ActiveDock under Bouncing). You also have the option of disabling it if you find it annoying or controlling the time interval of each bounce via the Settings app.

You can check out the video of the app in action to get an idea:

It’s a cool tweak for Mac users who are used to some of these nifty little features.

ActiveDock is available for $1.99 on Cydia in the BigBoss repository. If you’re on a jailbroken iOS device, then click on the download link below to purchase and install the tweak from Cydia.
