QuickScroll 2 – Quickly Scroll in a Page

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## We haven’t done a review of QuickScroll, an application that allows you to quickly scroll in a page, since it was first released. I received an email from Michel saying that QuickScroll 2 was much better than the previous version so, I thought I would take a look at it. He was right, version 2 of the app is very nice.

The mod now has quite a few Settings and options. The settings are located in the stock Settings application. In the Settings you are able to turn the scrollbar on/off, you can set the Tapping Scroll Track (so when you tap the scroll track it either goes to the next page or it jumps to the spot on the page that corresponds with the spot you tapped on the scroll track), you can set the duration of the scroll track from 1 second to 10 seconds (this is how long the scroll track displays before disappearing), you can set how you would like to activate the scroll track (single tap, two-finger tap, triple tap or scrolling – if you turn Scrolling on, the track bar will display as soon as you start scrolling in a page) and you can choose to disable the scroll track in specific applications.

Action Menu – Adds Additional Options to Cut, Copy and Paste Functionality

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

sesttings Action Menu is a pretty sweet mod that adds additional options to the stock Cut, Copy and Paste functionality. The mod adds the ability to Copy All, Scroll to the Top, Scroll to the Bottom, Dial and Favorites.

Once you have installed Action Menu, it can be activated in your stock Settings application. After you have activated Action Menu you can then go into any application in which the stock Cut, Copy and Paste feature works and when you tap, you will notice new options on the Cut, Copy and Paste pop-up. The new options could include; Copy All which gives you the ability to quickly copy everything without having to Select All and then select Copy, Dial which allows you to quickly call a phone number, To Bottom which will scroll you all the way to the bottom of the page, To Top which will scroll you all the way to the top of the page and Favorites which allows you to add the selected text to a clipboard of favorites or paste text from the favorites clipboard.

The two features that I appreciate the most are the To Bottom feature, due to the fact that it seems to be the only way to quickly scroll to the bottom of a page, and the Favorites feature because it allows you to save text that you use often and then allows you to quickly paste it without having to copy it first.

StatusBar Dots – Move Page Dots to Your Status Bar

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

StatucBar Dots StatusBar Dots is a mod that moves your page dots to your status bar. So, instead of having the dots below your forth row (or fifth if you are using the FiveIrows mod) they are on your status bar. In order to have the page dots on your status bar, the app moves your time over to the far right on your status bar (similar to the RightClock mod).

If you do not have any sort of status bar notifications, this mod should work well for you. However, if you do have status bar notifications, it will push all your notification over to the right and they will overlap on top of each other. You also cannot see the ninth page indicator dot if you have notifications on your status bar. [Read more…]
