Upcoming jailbreak tweak ‘Deck’ adds a hotbar to your SpringBoard

By , Feb 27, 2012

Deck is an upcoming jailbreak tweak from SBCoders that is currently in beta testing. It promises to lend added functionality to your SpringBoard by adding an App switcher-esque side bar that’s accessible by swiping.

Inside the “hotbar” you’ll gain access to a multitude of customizable functions, and shortcuts. It looks like a great compliment to the currently existing App switcher.

SBCoders has released a teaser video that shows Deck in action, check inside to have a look…

If you ask me, I’d say it looks quite nice, and I’m looking forward to giving it a hands-on walkthrough.

Deck will require iOS 5, and we’ve heard that it will cost between $0.99 and $1.99. Let us know what you think in the comments about Deck.

Update: We’ve added our very own Deck hands-on video here.

    Looks great, I like simplicity, and having everything on one main screen. Definitely going to pick it up.

    Nice! I don’t see how people complain about being bored with the iPhone, with all these tweaks available.

      Most people don’t jailbreak. I love all the jailbreak stuff out there, but i don’t do it simply because i don’t want to void my warranty.

        I said “people,” not “iDB users”

        How many times do people have to say it? If something goes wrong with your phone, restore it through iTunes and hey presto! You’ve got an unjailbroken iPhone still under warranty. -___-

        actually, if i’m not mistaken, apple has ways of detecting previously jailbroken iPhones. But that’s going on old information. Might have changed by now.

    It works very similarly to “Dock” by Ma Jun, which is another great tweak.

    Great Tweak.. just when I think the need to Jailbreak isn’t needed anymore they bring out tweaks like this.

    Looks awesome! I am using WeeToolbox and I love it but I would rather have Deck because it adds some pretty awesome looking features.
