Miss Infinidock? Docky is a jailbreak tweak that will trigger your nostalgia

As you scroll through the multitude of pages that make up your iPhone’s Home screen, one thing that’s always visible is the application Dock. That said, the Dock is a wonderful place to store your most frequently used apps, as it makes them quick and easy to access in a pinch.

But for those who demand more than just four application spaces in their application Dock, a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Docky by iOS developer Nepeta shows a lot of promise.

Those who remember the classic Infinidock extension by ex-jailbreak tweak developer chpwn will likely come to appreciate Docky, as it’s a modernized remake of what some would call one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks ever conceived, but with much more to offer.

In the screenshot examples above, you’ll notice that Docky brings several different Dock formats to the table. Users can choose the one they prefer and configure Dock behavior from the new preference pane that gets added to the Settings app after installation:

Here, you can:

  • Toggle Docky on or off on demand
  • Enable or disable a five-icon dock
  • Choose between Default, Double, Expandable, or Infinite dock modes
  • Choose between disabled, iPhone X, or older iPhone force style
  • Adjust the Dock’s background opacity via a slider
  • Enable or disable paging in infinite Dock mode
  • Enable or disable snap to icon in infinite Dock mode
  • Enable or disable the scroll indicator in infinite Dock mode
  • Adjust the spacing between app icons in infinite Dock mode

The developer provides a Respring button at the bottom of the preference pane so that users can save any changes they make to the tweak on demand.

Whether you’re just looking for a way to add more application spaces to your Dock or you simply want the functionality of the classic Infinidock tweak on your modern jailbroken iOS 11 or 12 device, it’s hard to go wrong with Nepeta’s new Docky tweak.

Docky is available as a free download from Nepeta’s repository in Cydia or Sileo, and the tweak is also open source on the developer’s GitHub page for those interested in learning what makes it tick.
