There has been a lot of noise recently about a concept called Expose (see video below). Today, Expose is more than a concept and it has officially become an application renamed Orbit for the occasion.

Orbit brings you an instant way to switch between pages on your home screen. Based on the “iPhone Expose” concept, this modification gives you an icon that, when tapped, animates your home page into Orbit.

The app was created by Steven Troughton-Smith, the developer of Stack. If you have a Mac, you might even be familiar with the concept as Orbit is pretty much like Spaces on the Mac.

Orbit is available from Cydia for $1.99. I haven’t downloaded the application has I wouldn’t make any use of it (I don’t have many apps installed) but I know there are a lot of people out there who were patiently waiting for the release of this app.

    of course man, I would buy it right now (y)

    Thanks! Purchased. Useful if you have 4 or more pages.

  • Does it work as well as advertised?

    I cannot use this, cause i always have installed just the applications that i use, so it useless to me, but it’s relly good if somebody wants to have many apps, cause there could be a huge mess of them. 🙂

    Anyhow I recently installed the source on cydia beyouriphone.com , and to my surprise I was finding APPS that are paid APPS on Cydia, amongst their APPS was this one, I downloaded and works good, it ran pretty smooth on my 3G,. and by the way the REPO is the same for the one that you need to add videomover, just googla around.

    Cant find this source anywhere on CYDIA. Tried to add it and it said it was not a known source. So how did you add it?

    ( beyouriphone.com )

  • Turkle

    Just google around a bit and you’ll find it.

  • brandon

    it is repo.beyouriphone.com

    btw i had to have wifi and 3G off for it to recognize it

    hope it helps

    cool app. few things that need work:

    1. When in ‘orbit-mode’, home button does nothing. To exit, you have to tap an orbit screen.
    2. It doesn’t support push badges.
    3. Sometimes, orbit screen do not render all icons or incorrect icons.

    Overall, it’s slick but needs some attention. No regrets with this buy. Just hope it doesn’t get abandoned. =)

    SpringJumps is good enough for me. just put the page 0 button in the bottom dock, and all the other buttons on page 0 itself.

  • The Orbit app is based on a concept developed by Ocean Observations. To see the original video that inspired Steve to make this app, as well as other concepts, visit us on:

    This is a piece of shit. I installed it and whenever i pressed on an app it sent my phone in to safe mode…. i nearly needed to fully restore my phone to get it to work again. DEFINATELY avoid.
