fullscroll

It seems like well-known jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich has been extremely busy as of late. Earlier today, we told you that his new Do Not Disturb tweak ‘Luna’ landed on Cydia. And now we’ve got another one to show you.

Have you ever noticed when scrolling in an app like Chrome or Facebook, the title bar (top of an app that contains text or buttons) disappears? It’s kind of cool, right? Well with FullScroll, you can make all of your apps do it…

FullScroll promises to give all of your third party applications a new “awesome fullscreen mode” by auto-hiding their navigation/toolbars when you’re scrolling. This only extends the display area a tiny bit, but it’s for sure noticeable.

The tweak itself is pretty straightforward. Once installed, you’ll pop into your Settings app and open the FullScroll pane. Here you’ll see a list of all of your apps, each with 3 options: Hide Title Bar, Hide Toolbar and Title Bar, or none.

Changes take effect instantly, so no need to respring, and overall I found the tweak to work reliably. If you’re in the market for something like this, it’s definitely worth checking out. You can find FullScroll in the BigBoss repo, for free.

Have you tried FullScroll yet? What’d you think?

  • I like the tweak, but there are a few problems here and there, for example with the official twitter app the footer-bar moves up (about 30px), even if FullScroll is turned off for the app

    • Diego Gastón Milano

      I wish they added an option for the hidden things to be displayed back if you stopped scrolling for a particular amount of time (say 2-3 seconds). Having to scroll a bit up for those bars to be shown again is not very practical in my opinion.

    Awesome but not for all apps. Great for tweetbot. Not for insta, whatsapp

    • Melvco

      agreed, it definitely works better in some apps than it does in others.

      • Yes I don’t like how everything is enabled by default and things like messages tweak are broken. It seems that Ryan is intentionally making everything incompatible with the messages tweak because of his little personal beef with the developer.

      • Gorgonphone

        Lol omg

      • Oh you don’t believe me : )

      • What beef? I’ve noticed that his tweaks are conflicting with the messages tweak by ma jun.

      • I think he was pissed that he borrowed some code for QuickDo, as its better then activator and ever since he’s been making sure his tweaks break his. Ryan does that type of immature bs. Just how he made emphasize, he made it to obviously piss off the guy who had borrowed some color schemes. I may be wrong but it’s all to fishy.

      • If that is true then my respect for him has instantly dropped. I paid for Messages – it isn’t my fault they don’t get along – the paying customers that keep these folk in business shouldn’t be punished over petty stuff like this.

        I disagree. If what is being said is true, then another developer is benefiting from his labor. That is the equivalent of stealing. If that were to happen to me, then I definitely would be tempted to hinder the one who stole from me the ability to benefit further from my hard work.

      • I’ve never heard of Petrich making a quick message tweak… What part of this was stolen? I’m not saying its right but paying customers certainly shouldn’t suffer for it.

      • Oh I’m not talking about a quick message tweak. I’m talking about QuickDo, its a lot like activator but better at gestures.

      • idk that’s kind of silly to me

      • Precisely why I decided against purchasing it when it went paid – after using Grabby, Messages template would be messed up until respring – not cool.

  • Great tweak, but please fix the bugs.

  • Gorgonphone

    Pass

  • Dylfo

    I had this tweak for a few and I liked the effect it gave my apps but it made navigating back to previous menus a tedious process

    • weztimonial

      thats true.

    • The use swipeback

  • Way to buggy for a 1.0 release!

  • bloodshed

    great tweak..a little bug though in the music.app, when scrolling down a song lyrics.

  • Damian W

    It is difficult to swipe across screen with this tweak. For example MessageSwiper became unresponsive.

  • Chris

    Noticed one issue so far…when I was adding an event in calendar, scrolling to the date I needed to set, hid the title bar (kinda locked me on the page). Obviously this is an oversight…only scrolling on the original page should enable title bar hide. scrolling sub menus (or options) should not enable the hiding nor disable it. Hopefully that will be updated soon…love your tweaks ryan.

  • Joe B

    I like monocle.

  • Harley M

    My status bar is see-through in quite a few apps, anyone know how to fix it? It conflicts with this tweak and i cant find a solution.

  • Nice concept; does have a bug in mail; you can’t delete mails when fullscroll is activated….
