When you have the popular new Velox tweak installed, it opens up a bunch of new interactions with many of the stock iPhone apps. As we highlighted in our initial walkthrough with the tweak, the stock Contacts app benefits by allowing you to access your contact information using a swipe gesture on the app’s icon.
That functionality, while different, was admittedly a little boring. That’s where this new add-on — Addial for Velox — steps in to spice things up a bit. This is an interesting add-on, because it combines the functionality of two tweaks into one — the aforementioned Velox, and another tweak that we reviewed in the past called Addial. Take a look inside for more information.
Once Addial for Velox is installed on your device, you can perform a swipe gesture on the stock Contacts app to open up the Addial options. Doing this will reveal three new buttons in the Contacts app’s Velox enhanced folder: Add Contact, Dial, and Call Contact. All three of the buttons perform self-explanatory functions, and work similar to the full fledged version of Addial.
I did want to mention that while it was rare, I noticed a few crashes here and there while interacting with the new and improved enhanced folder for the stock Contacts app. This crashing never happened to me while using the add-on free version of the Contacts enhanced folder, so I’m assuming that Addial is behind the crashes.
At any rate, there have been a number of new Velox related add-ons to hit Cydia over the past few days, and I can confidently say that this is one of the better ones. If you’re looking to get more out of your stock Contacts app, or you often use any of the functions Addial provides on a regular basis, then I recommend that you head over to Cydia’s BigBoss to download it for free.
