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.

Expose Changed to Orbit and Submitted to Cydia Store

##ICON_NAME## A few days ago, we told you about Expose, an application that is similar to Spaces on the Mac only on the iPhone. The developer, Steven Troughton-Smith (who also developed Stack), has changed the title of the mod Expose to Orbit. Orbit has been submitted to the Cydia store and should show up soon in the next few days. No info on how much the app will cost but, I’m guessing it will be worth it. For demo videos of the mod, check out THIS post.
