Barrel tweak brings cube transitions to iPhone SpringBoard [Jailbreak]

Jailbreak developer Aaron Ash released his latest tweak today in the Cydia app store named Barrel which makes your iPhone SpringBoard appear as if it is part of a 3D cube when you switch between pages. The premise of this tweak may be pretty simple but it looks stunning when installed. To make changes you can go into the Settings app and select between making your icons appear as if they are on the outside of the 3D cube or on the inside of the 3D cube.

The only caveat to this tweak is that it requires at least iOS 4.x and it will not work on the iPad at this time. If you are on an iPhone or iPod touch and are currently jailbroken, go check this out and pick it up for $2.99 now in the Cydia app store.

Check out a video of Barrel in action after the break and let us know what you think. Will you be using it?

GridTab for Safari (Jailbreak]

GridTab has been released on Cydia for all Jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches running iOS 4.x. GridTab configures Safari to use a gallery system much like the iPad when navigating through different tabs. For those of you who like using multiple tabs, this will give you a much quicker and easier transition between them. Why Apple has not made this feature standard in iOS is puzzling, but leave it up to the Jailbreak community to bring it to you first!

GridTab is available for $0.99 on Cydia.
