Filippo Bigarella, developer of popular jailbreak app Springtomize, had revealed that he had started work on Springtomize 3 for iOS 7 last month. But just like all of us, the release of evasi0n7 caught him off-guard, and he didn’t have time to prepare.
Bigarella posted a new entry on his blog, talking about the progress of Springtomize 3:
As most of you know, I had already been working on Springtomize 3 before the release of evasi0n7: unfortunately, while I managed to get a lot of work done, I can’t really say I got much farther than 35-40%.
From that 35-40%, I think I can safely say that, as of now, it’s at least half percent done: the “foundation” on which everything is based is nearly complete, many “hooks” have been written (which means that it already has a lot of features). What’s missing right now is expanding even more the number of available features and… Settings.
Yep, settings are a big missing point when it comes to Springtomize, and require a lot of work and testing: oh, not even counting that they need to be designed to be as user friendly as possible, because I don’t want people to get lost.
Beta testers for Springtomize 3 have been chosen, Bigarella says, though he doesn’t give even an estimated release date.
In case you’re not aware, Springtomize allows you to customize every aspect of iOS. You can do things such as increase the number of apps in the dock to 10, give the dock a cool coverflow effect, change the duration of the system-wide animations, remove page limits, customize the default animations, customize the lock screen, hide stock app icons and lots more.
Update (January 25):
Springtomize 3 for iOS 7 is now available on Cydia.
