‘Fade’ dims your Home screen icons when invoking Notification Center

By , Dec 27, 2012

Fade is an extremely simple jailbreak tweak that forces the Home screen UI elements to fade when Notification Center is invoked. As you slide down Notification Center, elements like the app icons and the dock will progressively fade from view. As you slide the Notification Center pane up, the effect is reversed, and the elements fade back into view.

There are no options to setup or settings to configure, just install it and it starts working. Take a look inside as we demonstrate Fade on video…

As I stated, tweaks really don’t get any simpler than this. Fade focuses on one thing, and does it somewhat well. I say this, because I noticed a bit of slowdown and delay when invoking Notification Center with Fade installed on my iPhone 4. Obviously, for something used as often as Notification Center is, any slowdown or delay is immediately noticeable.

If you’re able to live with the slight delay, then you may wish to give Fade a try. If so, then head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download it for free. Be sure to let me know what you think about Fade in the comment section below.

      • Dan

        I somewhat agree, but the final nail in the coffin is due to the fact that iPhone 5 cannot be jailbroken.

    • Solid snake

      Awesome! Now I just need the IOS 5 and iPad versions to hit xsellize as well, once they come out.

    I don’t understand why iDB keeps making these posts when the latest gen iDevices cannot be jailbroken. Maybe you should change the blog name to iRetroDownloadBlog

    Can apple seriously not realize that it will lose a lot by keep blocking jailbreaks on their devices ?
