Jepit is a jailbreak tweak that attempts to add new app switching animations to your iDevice.

Along with animations, Jepit also includes the ability to change the speed of said animations.

Sadly, its lack of polish hinders what could otherwise be an eye catching tweak. Take a look as we go one-on-one with Jepit inside…

The stock iOS app switching animation features a horizontal wrap-around motion that hides the previous app behind the newly selected app. Jepit adds onto this stock animation and allows you to add additional effects — app fade, vertical, vertical stretch, and horizontal stretch being among them.

Sadly, not all of the animations work, and some of the ones that do are mislabeled, misspelled, or a combination of the two.

In addition to animations, Jepit allows you to adjust the speed of an animation. Again, I had some very mixed results with this; some worked well, while others didn’t work at all.

The bottom line is that Jepit is a tweak that needed a few additional coats of polish before it was released. It’s hard to recommend using it for free, let alone paying the $1.59 asking price.

    I think it looks AWFUL, the jerkyness and overall look when switching just looks so bad, not as good as the way Apple handles switching apps that’s for sure … Another utterly pointless tweak which I find myself thinking a hell of a lot lately but then it’s my view, each to there own and i’m sure some people will like it.

    The trend over the last year or so seems to be purely on quantity and just making any old shit tweak with the hope somebody will buy it, I wish they’d focus on stuff that was useful or actually worked before they tried selling it … Thank God there are still devs that do make good tweaks, a la Springtomize, IntelliScreen,etc etc.

    Jeff, what is the purple icon on your phone with the check mark? I think it says Omni Focus? I see it in a lot of your vids and cant find it.
    Also, is there a jailbreak for changing my font on my entire 4s device?
    Many thanks

    The fact that it says “Orizzontal” as an option in the setting panel is pretty big warning sign of a crappy tweak. Either someone can’t spell horizontal, or thinks spelling it Orizzontal is hilarious. Either possibility is errm, wierd…

  • how can i get that awesome iDB carrier logo?
