Addial for Velox

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.

Addial for Velox Add Contact

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.

      Thumbs down, because you are a little kid with no self-esteem that thinks people actually do like or hate you if they thumbs up or down your comments.

      Have a nice day.

        You mad?

      • :O I am actually 19 years old..

      • People will never stop being dicks… @Guest is an example of how not to act if you have a wish to show off your unhappiness

  • can we just use this with the phone app, i hide contacts because all its functionality is within the phone app anyway

  • Let me be the first in another velox article to say that “We Want Ipad version!”

  • Downloaded this the other day. Love the concept, but sadly buggy still. After I had taken a picture by swiping down on the camera icon on my springboard, it wouldn’t let me take a picture from my lock screen.

    Updated today, and now if I take a photo from my springboard, my whole phone freezes and I need to force re-start. Very frustrating 🙁

    • Cam , texts & compass causing probs . Cam & text apps are dope so they need to fix that ASAP!!

  • Addial? Water background?
    Lol Adele is rolling in the deep.

      I see what you did there.

    I had also problems with the Camera until I’ve disabled Velox for it.
    Apps like foursquare and Instagram terminated to home screen if I wanted to take a picture 🙁

    we want velox for ios 5

    • Damian Lillard

      No, no one wants that.

    This works fairly well. I enjoy this tweak, I usually add a few contacts per week (or month, if I’m having a dry spell) so this helps and certainly looks cool too.
