CirDock

CirDock is a recently released tweak that provides the iOS dock with new carousel animations, a larger capacity, and three user-toggle-able modes.

Like similar dock-oriented jailbreak tweaks, CirDock provides users with different animation styles such as Linear, Rotary, Time Machine, Cover Flow, etc. In all, there are nearly a dozen carousel animations to be found.

Although having a customizable dock with more than 4 app icons and custom animations may sound run of the mill in 2015, it’s really CirDock’s filter feature that makes the tweak stand out among the rest. Check out the details in this post for the full scoop.

CirDock 2

Hold actions are customizable filters that allow you to switch between multiple docks. In CirDock, you basically have up to three docks that you can switch between at any time using a tap and hold gesture on the dock. These docks include:

  • Default
  • Favorites
  • Badged Items (only)

By tapping and holding on the dock, you can switch between the standard dock, with all of your standard pre-configured apps, a favorites dock, which only includes your favorite applications, and the badged items dock, which lists all apps with pending badge notifications.

Outside of CirDock’s filters, there are additional settings for changing the look of the carousel. You can remove icon labels, icon badges, and you also have the ability to highlight running apps.

CirDock 3

Upon installing CirDock, you’re asked to open the tweak’s Settings and select the Enabled Applications section in order to configure the applications that appear in the dock. With CirDock installed, apps can no longer be dragged into the dock while in wiggle mode. CirDock is its own entity and thus separated from the SpringBoard.

Once CirDock is configured, you have the ability to export your settings, which can later be imported if the need should arise.

CirDock is a simple tweak with a twist. Its filtering ability gives it a leg up on similar tweaks, and makes this release truly unique.

If you’d like to take CirDock for a spin, mosey on over to the BigBoss repo on Cydia where it can be had for $1.00.

What are your thoughts on CirDock?

    I got this and it works great with shiftdock so u can get a transparent dock og it also work with Asphaleia so im happy….

    Brilliant tweak. Been waiting for something like this since infinidock, but this is even better!

    I have a problem with adding apps to the dock via enabled enhancements. When I click in enhancements it crashes causing iPhone 5S on IOS 8.4 to restart. All adjustments on springtomize are turned off.

    I got the latest Cirdock from Cydia, my iPhone 5S on IOS 8.4 still crashes at the enhancements section of the tweak in settings.

    Crash log says it’s a springboard crash. I have anchor and cylinder installed also.

    Hopefully someone can find a fix for my problem as I’m dead keen on using the tweak. At the moment all I have in the dock is 4 apps: phone, mail, music & safari.

      Got a problem After the update. No Connection for checking the purchase.
      Thanks for fixin’ it

  • This tweak is pretty amazing, my only annoyance is that the icons are almost shortcuts rather than the icons themselves so the originals are still on the springboard, unlike with InfiniDock which puts the actual icons there

    • TotallySerious

      Which winterboard theme you have there? It looks sick 🙂

    • Brave Heart

      Will be adding a feature to remove icon duplicates 🙂 Don’t worry 😉

  • TotallySerious

    Thanks man, appreciate it 🙂

    • baddestsammaritan

      I got no connection. In settings there’s no other options. Now I have no animations in the dock ??

      • Silv3rstar

        Damn right

        Seems as if the server is down

      • Brave Heart

        That is true, the server couldn’t handle the load XD Anyway, I removed the licensing system for now and submitted a new update to Cydia. Now all that’s left is to wait for the update to be pushed into the repo.

      • Silv3rstar

        Thx but still offline until now

      • Brave Heart

        Yes that’s true. It takes time for a update submission to be pushed into the repo. Wait for version 1.1.1 and then install that. It should be available today or maximum tomorrow based on my previous experience…

      • Silv3rstar

        It’s working now. Quite well but the rotary theme is not as smooth as before. The distance between the icons is bigger than before. Can u fix it?

        Thx a lot and regards from germany

      • Silv3rstar

        It’s working now. But how can I change the distance between the icons in the rotary theme like before?
        They are too far apart after the update.

        Can u fix it?

        Regards from Germany

        Wow. Amazeballs! Awesome tweak. Best way to show off a jailbroken iPhone to those who don’t know the freedom of a customisable iPhone. Well done.

        Is there a way to have more that 3 icons in the dock for the carousel cylinder setting?

      • Silv3rstar

        Sure,

        Just add them in the settings under enabled Applications

      • Brave Heart

        @silv3rstar:disqus @baddestsammaritan:disqus You can try changing the dock’s radius and the icon spacing options. I’ll be adding an extra option to edit the dock’s Arc (the degrees the dock shows in. It used to be PI rads before v1.1.0 but I changed it to PI *2, which may be the reason to your issues 🙂 )

      • Silv3rstar

        Thx
        Already did but still not as before;)

        That should fix the issue…

        An option to fade out the icons in the background in the rotary theme as before would be great.

        😉

        Thx

  • iPhoneWINS

    II love this tweak
