If you’re looking for one of the most authentic representations of Cover Flow for your iOS device’s dock, then look no further than Overflow — a tweak that lends a Cover Flow effect to existing jailbreak tweaks like Infinidock.

It’s an impressive looking effect, and can be had if you have a jailbroken iPhone and about $2.00 to spare. Check inside as we take it for a, ahem…spin

Now, this certainly isn’t the first implementation of a Cover Flow style in iOS’s dock. In fact, the uber-tweak Springtomize 2 features such functionality as well, though it looks a bit different than what you get with Overflow.

The fact of the matter is that you may prefer Springtomize 2’s implementation a bit better, depending on the type of style you’re going for. Either way, you’re going to need a tweak like Infinidock to give you a decent scrolling effect across your dock’s icons.

In a few minutes, I’ll add a video of Springtomize 2’s implementation of scrolling for comparison.

Until then, let us know what you think about Overflow and the Cover Flow effect in general. We know this hasn’t been the first time a tweak like this has surfaced, we’re almost certain we’ve seen something similar in the past, but this is the first time it’s garnered this much attention from the blogosphere.

Update: Check out of Springtomize 2 Cover Flow dock video for comparison.

  • Nice! next tweak on my ipad 2

  • I’m assuming yes, but can you click on any icon to start the app? or only the one in the center? I’m not up for scrolling but this does look good and could be quite useful so I’ll give it a try when the iphone 4S jail break comes out…when is it coming out again? 2013 was it?

    7 icons per page just looks utterly rubbish it has to be said, anymore than 5 and the dock looks shit.

      It’s all personal preference man…………………”YOU” think it looks like shit with any more than 5………………………………..Not everyone………………………And u best believe that a lot of people are going to buy this and put 7 icons in there dock………..

      P.S.:

      I happen to think any more than 5 looks pretty shitty too………………i always go with 5 icons on each dock page.

    overflow is .99$ actually

      That cannot be true…………………..Didn’t effect me at all…………………..Something else……………………..Perhaps a Springtomize setting……………….Make sure that no options are enable in Sprintomize in dock section………………..and that you only use the dock options from Infinidock…………………….Or vice versa………………….Dont set custom number:5 in Springtomize………………………and then do the same thing with Infinidock………………………..Ya see what I’m getting at!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Conflicts happen that way……..Duh……………

        yeah you’re right, simply having springtomize hide the dock labels makes it crash. Pretty f’d up. I loaded up infinidock and disabled dock options from springtomize and it’s fine now. Although now changing the icons in the dock makes it crash… when I need to do that much fiddling around to use a tweak, not worth it for me.

  • if customised theme is installed, can it still be used? your video shows stock icons….

    Would this work with five icon dock?

    • Anonymous

      LOL:

      It makes absolutely no sense to use five icon dock…………………….i don’t know if it will work……………………But Infinidock is better………………………And can put 5 icons in dock with Sprintomize and Inifnidock……………..

      The way I look at it……….”Five Icon Dock” is a completely “obsolete” tweak since Infinidock, ScrollingBoard, and Springtomize all can put how ever many icons in the dock you want,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

        Five icon dock is free, as opposed to all your other suggestions.
