Cask

Now that his work on Auxo seems to be finished, perhaps this means that we will begin seeing more frequent releases from Ryan Petrich? It doesn’t appear that he’s wasting any time, as Cask, a new jailbreak tweak, just recently appeared on his beta repo.

Cask is a tweak that brings animated table scrolling, inspired by Google Plus, to iOS. Although it may sound like a small thing, when you see Cask in action, you’ll realize that it causes a significant visual change. Be sure to watch our full video walkthrough of Cask in action.

Once Cask is installed, you’ll find preferences within the stock Settings app. Cask’s preferences contain two sections and a toggle: Style, Duration, and Animate Fresh Views.

Cask

The style section contains the following four styles to choose from:

  • Fade
  • Grow
  • Stretch
  • Slide

You can choose an animation duration between 100ms and 1250ms. The default duration is set at 500ms, which is the sweet spot because it’s not too abrupt and brisk, and it’s not too slow.

To use Cask, simply swipe through an iOS interface that contains tables. The root portion of the stock Settings app is a perfect example, and provides a great testing-ground to take the tweak for a spin.

As you scroll, you’ll notice each table item fade, grow, stretch, or slide into view. If you have the Animate Fresh Views switch set to on, then the tables will automatically animate when opening a page containing them.

Cask is still in beta, but I like it. It’s fast, quick, easy, and it doesn’t appear to impede on system resources from a performance standpoint. I will say that scrolling too quickly can be a little disconcerting, but it’s all in good fun.

If you want to try Cask, add the following repo to your list of Cydia sources:

    • f1ght3r

      Sorry bud, but it looks like you’re probably going to be waiting till 8.3.

  • Chris

    Got it last night and love it, after a while you almost forget it’s there because it feels native to iOS.

  • coLin

    Nice but I feel like I need more RAM memory for my iPhone 5

  • pjs_boston

    Pointless…

    • jaysoncopes

      Not pointless, beautiful.

      That’s like calling Van Ghoh’s work useless.

  • SoylentGreen

    Nice tweak, curtains also a cracker, just the resources thing, stil,l its installed! For now.
    Ps. No flames regards resources, i read it consumes little but im hanging out off my phone making sext everyday, this punishes the battery, so resources are key.

    • Chris

      No issues running it along side many other tweaks on my iPhone 6, both my battery and performance are unaffected by it.

      • SoylentGreen

        Ye but are you semi perma-txting? I love both cask and if i was a back swiper id love curtains more, just wary of frivolous tweaks, remember i say i make texts with lady, semi-perma. Thinking if i can get an hour extra batt id dump the full jb (lol funny how mindset changes when tattooedlady is using your body for errrrr….. Fun)
        The horny trumphs the Jailbreak for me lol
        Thanks for the assist tho bre
        Only goy 5s here but just under year old, best practices with batt since day 1.
        Peace

    Completely useless! Ryan should spend his time fixing Activator.

    • What’s wrong with Activator? I have Ryan’s repo and the latest beta I am using has no issues at all on my 5S.

      • Nesly Lacroix

        Many things. Connected / Disconnected from WIFI doesn’t work. Unable to set Received email from a specific email address custom event. There are others according to Reddit posts. I also have a 5S.

      I have a problem with “Little Brother”. In the Photoapp the photos disappear when I zoom out to years. But I love the resolution of the 6plus on my Ip6. Please fix that Ryan Petrich. Or did I miss something?

      • SoylentGreen

        You did miss something, known as etiquette.

      • Feivl

        Would you be so kind to let me know why? I love learning :-).

      • SoylentGreen

        Not cool to demand @petrich (or anyone ftm) to do things, or moan, or anything but take what you get for nowt/nada/nixi/nothing and make do.
        Bitching at free can help ppl decide to throw towel in.
        Hope I helped (;
        i find every day is a school day. Always learning.

      • Feivl

        I´m a huge fan of Ryan Petrich´s work. I was just requesting to enhance a paid tweak. And I´m sure he is interested in hints on bugs to improve his tweaks as he always has.
        Don´t ad your own mood to someone else´s lines.

      • SoylentGreen

        Ok, i can do laymans, i don’t beg @freestylers, obviously bug reports are welcomed, there is a recognised system in place for “feedback” for “paid” tweakage hahaha.
        Sometimes, some people, require or are afforded, rules unwritten.
        Now. Run along.

    • SoylentGreen

      Lol go forward as jimmy iovine, an agent/manager/chancer

  • mp

    An update for Rich Text For Mail (paid tweak) to OIS 8 still a pipedream.
    At least his talented work isn’t being wasted on copied junk. (Insert sarcasm here)

  • Jackson Grong

    It’s Bjutiffull

  • rasiquiz

    Needs to have a app blacklist function. The Music app is laggy as f*** :/

    • SoylentGreen

      Eh? What? If i made this tweak id prolly be at NMap with Kali linux looking for you @now!!!!
      Mind your manners.

  • Jonathan

    Another unique, and as all the other tweaks have been from him, amazing. Downloading now. 🙂

    • SoylentGreen

      Yeah, right answer (:
      My mum dropped me as baby
      Into a pool of savvy.

  • gaucho
