Motion Adds Visual Mayhem to Your iPhone’s Home Screen

By , Jan 2, 2012

Motion is a new jailbreak tweak that can seriously spice up your iPhone’s Home screen, if you’re into that sort of thing. The tweak does this by adding quite a few animation options to the app icons on your Home screen.

Best of all, Motion clocks in at a reasonable $1 on the Cydia Store. Should you try it out? Check out our hands-on video inside and judge for yourselves…

Motion adds the following animation options: Rotation, scaling, skew, flip, jump, transparency, vertical wave, and horizontal wave by means of a panel in the Settings app.

All of the animations can be toggled on and off both independently or simultaneously, and the first 6 animations can all animate simultaneously as well.

The bottom line: If you’re looking to add some serious visual mayhem to your iPhone’s Home screen, then pony up that buck and install Motion. It’s compatible with iOS 4 and iOS 5, and you can find it on the BigBoss repo.

Are you tempted to add Motion to your Home screen?

    Seems like a waste of battery, especially since iOS 5 is already sucking up battery like there is no tomorrow…

    Maybe it’s just me, but jailbreaking has lost its allure. Apps like MyWi, My3G, and CallBar are few and far between.

      I wouldn’t say its lost its allure but I agree there’s a lot of junk out there (like motion).

      But I still love tweaks like folder-enhancer, gridlock, sbs, perpage html, springtomize, killbackground, callbar, bite sms and a lot of others that help me change the look and add functionality to my phone.

    Motion is one of those cooler jailbreak tweaks out there that lets you customize the way that your iPhone behaves. I think it’s great.

    Fun little tweak, although it clearly isn’t meant to be a game changer. Works seemlessly in dimmed backgrounds, folders, etc. However, it conflicts with Zephyr when sliding from the bottom of the phone’s screen to reveal the switcher. A slow pull will occasionally cause the switcher to close and then reopen automatically. Hopefully gets addressed.

    it really bothers me that he never has his phone charged when he does these videos.
