Barrel: One of our favorite Jailbreak Tweaks updated with some cool new animations [Video]


One of the first jailbreak tweaks that I install on my jailbroken iOS device is Barrel.

In case you’re not aware, Barrel was released back in 2010, and brought 3D-cube effect to the iPhone while swiping through Home screen pages.

Since then the developer has been adding new animations to keep it fresh. The developer has released an update for the tweak that brings 5 new animations. They are:

  • Wave
  • Icon rollover
  • Vortex
  • Shrink
  • Shrink Completely

You can change the animations via the Settings app (Settings > Barrel > Mode) or by launching the Barrel app from the Home screen.

I could describe them, but won’t do them justice nor do the screenshots above, so I suggest checking out our video walkthrough of these new animations. Wave, Icon rollover and Vortex are really cool.

Barrel is available on Cydia for $2.99. If you’ve purchased it, I would strongly recommend it.

Vortex is my current favorite. Let me know which one is your favorite from the new animations.
