DoubleDock is a jailbreak tweak that does pretty much exactly what its name states — adds a second layer to your existing dock to create a “double” dock.

The problem with this tweak is that it isn’t very useful, it’s not very practical, it’s unattractive, and on top of all of that you have to pay for it…

I honestly don’t see any redeeming factors to this tweak on any level. Let’s start with aesthetics, shall we? DoubleDock forces you to have five app icons per row before it will allow you to even use the second dock layer. Because of this oversight, the tweak makes the iPhone’s interface look cluttered an unbalanced.

If that wasn’t enough, DoubleDock doesn’t hide the top dock’s app icon shadows, which means you have shadows sitting in the middle of thin air.

DoubleDock is devoid of any settings, so what you see is what you get. There is no customization involved whatsoever.

If you’re interested in trying DoubleDock, you can find it for $0.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo; though, I wouldn’t suggest paying anything for such a tweak. If you really need more app icons in your dock, try something like InfiniDock or Springtomize 2 instead. Either of those tweaks look and function much better than DoubleDock.

What do you think?

    I like the fact that this is a new idea, unlike most tweaks that just repeat what’s already been done. But I really wouldn’t use this, takes too much room on the screen and it really doesn’t looks well thought out (ie: the reflections that’s cut off halfway).

      What about something like Zephyr, where you slide up from the bottom to reveal the second dock? That will work.

    • It’s so lame, I can’t believe Jeff actually took time out on a Sunday to make the video.

  • It’s shit as it is but with some work could be quite nice. Imagine two glass shelves with four icons on each. I can imagine people would go for that.

  • The developer needs to go back to drawing board and work out how to make it look better, neat and unique. As soon as i saw this in cydia i thought it would be crap.

    worst tweak I’ve ever seen

  • Careful, i just bought it & it transferred my last screen of apps to screen 3 & trying to arrange icons within it is a pain. my rating 1/10

  • This concept could have been better if say u put the extra dock at the top underneath the statusbar. Then your pages would seem to scroll from the middle kinda like some dreamboard themes do. Id try it if that option was available, but it is original like Dan said. We need new ideas out there.

    InfiniDock or go home.

    Original but, I think a better idea would a way to hide your home screen icons via activator leaving only your dock visible kind of like OSX. I love to see my wallpaper but I really hate the tweaks available to hide icons as they require winterboard or a specific tweak to do so and require a respring or to many actions.

    • I used Folderenhancer and put everything in folders and then moved all the folders to the dock and now I can see my entire wallpaper!

      • cruzcontrol1001

        I used that for a while still didn’t fulfill what I was looking for not exactly as polished it’s kind of cheap feeling I want to just hide my undocked apps via a swipe or something similar and bring them back when I feel like it real quick. Thanks but no thanks.

    stupid and useless. I swear jailbreak used to be sweet now it’s just unnecessary.

    • Dan

      There may be a lot of dumb tweaks, but the classics like bitesms, springtomize, gridlock, folderenhancer, callbar, sbsettings (to name a few) still make jailbreaking worthwhile 🙂

    This is classic case of..why? There’s huge amount of clever, creative, well designed tweaks out there, that provide extra functionality or better aesthetics to existing apps or iOS features. A tweak doesn’t even have to do a lot to be great. Just look at something simple, free and awesome like “Browser Changer”.

    DoubleDock doesn’t even come close to achieving any of the above criteria AND it costs money. Developer: Show some pride, remove this POS from the Cydia and reimburse your poor victims/customers! 🙂

      Maybe the developer really put a lot of time and effort into making this tweak, and the $0.99 price tag “compensates” his time. Think about that.

        If the dev put a lot of time into this tweak, I suggest that he just wasted a large portion of his life 😀

        Maybe he did, but that doesn’t change the fact that it sucks and to the majority of consumers it’s definitely not worth $1. You can buy a very popular little app like Angry Birds for that. Think about that! 😉

        As an an analogy, RIM spent a huge amount of time, money and effort creating the Blackberry PlayBook tablet. Even though they thought it could take on the iPad, it was a dismal failure. The reasons? It was overpriced, flawed, lacked basic functionality like email, and overall polish. And although it had “new” features, they were largely pointless and added nothing compelling to the user experience. As a result the product was a giant flop.

        Sometimes even if you set out with the best of intentions (as I’m sure the dev of DoubleDock did) you have to admit failed software, and the best move is to quickly reduce the price of the item, and get to work on something really good to win people’s interest back. If you leave the tweak up permanently for $1, people may feel like they’ve been (or are trying to be) ripped off and the danger is they’ll probably skip your next ap as a result (which may well be awesome).

        Suggesting the DoubleDock app might be worth the $1, just because it’s had a lot of time spent on it, doesn’t cut it (which I doubt anyway.. even the shadows for the upper dock aren’t removed and there’s no settings whatsoever!). When there are so many apps available for $1 or free that are actually worthwhile and greatly enhance your device, it just seems a little crazy.

        It’s ok to fail and/or produce average tweaks and apps. it’s just not ok to expect other people to pay for them. Harsh, but true.

  • i installed it and when i entered on the “edit” mode the dock icons started to shake very fast,unlike the normal action…and when i pressed the home button to stop de edition the icons got in a irregular place..very weird…and i couldní click on them…i had to use SBSettings to enter the “Safe Mode” to install this tweak!for me,that didn´t worked!

  • Yeah let’s forget that tweak…BUT THE INTRO IS GONE!!!!!! WHERE IS THE ORIGINAL INTRO TO YOUR VIDEOS JEFF!!!! THIS DON’T FEEL LIKE IDB!!! NOOOoooo….

  • Such a bad thing, lack of ideas?

  • I like the tweak “dock”.

  • Jeff, what lock app is that on your home screen?
