Kate (also known as Caterpillar) has been update to version 1.3.1. The update only adds one new feature to the application however, it does fix a few bugs and compatibility issue. The new feature is the ability to do a fast respring which means you are able to respring your SpringBoard without going to the lock screen (this will only work with firmware 1.1.3 and up). There is one bug fix that is really nice, Kate is now compatible with Dock, Screenshot and other similar applications. So, those of you who didn’t want to use Kate in the past because it was not compatible with Dock…you are good to go! Also, according to the developers of Kate, this will be the last update for 1.1.x firmware. Any future releases will only be compatible with firmware 2.0 (which only means we are getting closer! YAY!). Below is the complete change log via the developer. Kate is available through the Rip Dev source. [Read more...]

The name Kate resembles [Read more...]
There is an update to version 1.2.1 ofCaterpillar (I love updates to Caterpillar!!). Below is the full list of new features!!

Very cool!! Now, with the help of iBirthday and Caterpillar…I will always remember people’s Birthdays! The ability to add a Background behind the Icon Labels is pretty cool too. [Read more...]
There are some really cool new features with version 1.2 of Caterpillar. The feature I really like is that you can enable the Apple Enabled Screenshot app from it! And…it works on my 1.1.1…the actual Apple Enabled Screenshot app itself did not! Another really sweet new feature is if you are on 1.1.3 and above you can uninstall apps right from your SpringBoard!! You just tap an app until they start wiggling and then tap the X in the corner of the app you want to uninstall! They added a few new features to the FaceLift section as well… [Read more...]
Version 1.1.1 of Caterpillar makes just a few changes to the app. One is that you can now uninstall the app by unchecking all the options (in the app, not the settings) and hitting apply. They have also added a license agreement so, the next time you open the app you will see an agreement that you have to “slide to agree.” There were also a few bug fixes… [Read more...]
