A i r o – WinterBoard Theme

A i r o, by Pur3x, contains 61 icons (some of which are alternative icons), wallpaper, dock, lockscreen wallpaper, lockscreen battery, badges and quite a few UI mods. Overall, the theme is nicely designed and the UI mods are subtle and clean. I did notice that the “Slide to Unlock” text looks a little funky… it is moved over to the right but still slightly visible. You can fix this by using either the Slide to Unlock Killer or the No “Slide to Unlock” Text hacks. For more info about the theme, check it out on deviantART. You can get the A i r o theme via the modmyi source.

Overboard – View SpringBoard Pages Exposé style

Available In: Cydia       Price: $1.99  

##ICON_NAME## Overboard, a mod that allows you to view your SpringBoard pages Exposé style, was recently released in Cydia. If you are thinking that this app looks familiar… it’s because it does. Overboard is very similar to Orbit, by Steven Troughton-Smith, which was released last month.

However, Overboard does provide a bit more functionality. It allows the user to choose the launch method for the Exposé view (Home Button, SpringBoard Icon or SpringBoard Pinch), it allows the user to choose the number of columns displayed, it supports WinterBoard themes, it allows you to search for an app while in Exposé view and allows you to turn on/off the Dock while in the Exposé view. Overboard also seems to perform better than Orbit.

You can pick up Overboard for $1.99 via the modmyi source.

Cydgets – Time, Weather, Flashlight… [Updated]

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## Last week I wrote about Cydget, a “framework for managing lock screen plugins.” Over the week-end there were a few Cydgets (like Widgets for Cydget) released that are pretty decent.

The first is HTC Hero Cydget. This Cydget includes the current Time, Temperature and Weather Conditions. Once you have installed the Cydget, you will need to go into the stock Settings application under Cydget and activate it. I did find that this particular Cydget does not display immediately on the lock screen, there is a slight delay.

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## trichome2 trichome is a very nicely designed WinterBoard theme that contains 39 small icons (some are alternate icons), a wallpaper, dock, badges, pop-up mod, live clock mod and page indicators.

It also contains a detailed .psd file allowing you to create your own icons for the theme. You can get trichrome via the modmyi source.

If for some reason you do install this hack, you can always adjust your volume using the SBSettings Volume Slider Widget which allows you to quickly adjust your volume via a slider in SBSettings.
