Infinidock is a brand new jailbreak app for customizing the iPhone dock. It lets you add more than four icons to it (up to nine icons), and make it scrollable.
The app is from chpwn, one of the developers of the superb ProSwitcher multi-tasking app that all of us who are jailbroken here at JAiB count as one of our top, favorite apps.
As you ‘d probably expect, there ‘s not much to this app. It just does what it says on the box, and it works well.
I tried out six icons and above on my dock, and for now six feels like the number I ‘m most comfortable with. Seven and upwards felt a little messy, for lack of a better word.
Adding and removing apps to the dock with Infinidock installed is the same as always “ just drag and drop them when you ‘ve gone into ‘wiggly icon ‘ mode as when you want to uninstall or re-arrange apps.
In my case, I had to turn off PogoPlank in order to add items to the dock. This is not a big deal, as it ‘s not something I ‘ll be doing very often “ and I can remove dock items with PogoPlank on.
You setup your Infinidock preferences within the main Settings app.
There are only two things to set so far “ the number of icons per page (how many icons on dock), and whether or not the dock is scrollable.
Infinidock looks like another keeper for me, adding a very handy bit of extended functionality to the iPhone dock. Now I just need to work out my ideal mix of which apps to keep in the dock, which to place in the QuickDo favorites bar, and which to keep backgrounded in ProSwitcher.
That ‘s definitely a case of some very good jailbreak apps presenting me with the sort of problem that ‘s good to have.
Have you tried out Infinidock yet? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Please let us know in the comments.
