BBSettings: An SBSettings Killer in the Making?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few months, you’ve no doubt caught wind of BBSettings, the so-called “SBSettings killer” for iOS 5’s Notification Center.

True enough, it is a very beautiful widget, and its function is certainly promising, but can it take down the reigning king of all jailbreak apps?

Find out the answer to that question and more, as I go hands-on with BBSettings on video…


The short answer to that question is, no; it’s not an SBSettings killer; not yet.

I found the BBSettings to be a bit too laggy in its current form, but it certainly shows promise.

Right now, SBSettings is far and away more useful, due to features like Mobile Substrate add-ons, the ability to quickly hide app icons, and the simple theming properties.

That’s not to say that BBSettings can’t be an SBSettings killer; it just isn’t in its current form.

What do you think? If you want to give BBSettings a shot for yourself, and your iPhone is jailbroken, you can download it from its GitHub repository and install it via iFile.
