There is an update to SBSettings today. If you remember my initial review of SBSettings, you will remember that this application is pretty much supposed to be a BossPrefs replacement app. Well, I actually use SBSettings quite often and thought that the update was worth writing about. The “coolest” part of the update is that SBSettings is now themable! It now comes with the stock theme and two additional themes (HUD and Tech Shadow). You can get to the themes through the More option. I also noticed that there were quite a few additional mods for SBSettings in Cydia (which I just might have to do a post about).
Another new feature which I really like is that you can now select the Home Button to close the SBSettings window. I don’t know if it was just me but, I had a hard time closing the app using the little x. It always took like five tries before it would close. This feature is actually really nicely implemented…you can even use the Home Button to close SBSettings while it is open in another application. So lets say you are in your Notes app and you open SBSettings, you can select the Home Button and the SBSettings window will close but your Notes app will stay open.
Another new features is a brightness toggle. This features is also very well implemented into the application. I personally love this feature…it is soooo much faster than going all the way into your Settings to adjust your brightness! The update to version 1.0.1 also disables the SBSettings application while on your lock screen….which is an understandable change.
Overall, this application is well built and easy to use. Though, I am interested to know if everyone has finally switched over to using SBSetting exclusively or if you guys are still using both SBSettings and BossPrefs.
