Circulate: add colorful animated faces to the Clock app icon

By , Jan 6, 2015

Circulate Featured

Circulate is a new jailbreak tweak that brings new animation styles to the stock Clock app icon. Circulate is a great looking tweak that comes bundled with two themes out of the box. The themes, which consist of a circular theme and a bar-graph looking theme, allow you to measure time in two unique ways.

After installing Circulate, you can configure its look via the preferences in the stock Settings app. I was highly impressed by how responsive the tweak’s settings were, and how none of the changes required a respring.

Both the Concentric Circles theme and the Rising Bars theme can be color customized, and each customization changes dynamically based on the current theme selected. For example, with the Rising Bars theme, you are limited to changing the bar color and bar background color for the seconds, minutes, and hours bars. With the Concentric Circles theme, the customization options change to include things like ring width and radius.

I also really appreciate the inclusion of a “reset settings to default” option. I can’t tell you how many developers omit such a simple, yet vital option, but it’s included with Circulate.

Circulate is available for $0.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and I deem it to be a great value. It’s a unique tweak that allows you to theme the stock Clock app icon with two really cool built-in themes. Here’s hoping that we will see more theme packs in the future.

    I accidentally read “deem it to be a great value” as “deem it to be of great value”… both of which are totally wrong. Fun, yes, but only for those that feel like throwing money away.

      Hey deepdvd, I’m the dev of this tweak. While you may not care for it, many others do. This tweak is about aesthetics primarily, not about functionality. People love to customize their device in every possible way and this is just another route they can take, and thus it is far from throwing money away. If you message me @fewjative on twitter, I will send you a copy and maybe it will change your mind!

        Thank you both for the offer and the response. On the other hand, I’m more of a functionality guy, so I’ll pass. I was a bit harsh, and I apologize.

    Just my idea (maybe I heard it wrong) but the animation doesn’t match the hour on status bar? Jeff said “it’s the eleventh hour of the day” and the minute bar is filled less than half of it (less than 30 minutes) but the clock on status bar shows 9:41 AM, I don’t know if I’m getting it right
