I’ve been an iPhone user since the 3GS and will probably never switch to a different phone (mainly because of how much I’ve invested in the App Store and iTunes over the past few years). My work phone, on the other hand, is an Android and I’m going to be honest, I love it. I love the customization capabilities and the graphic effects like the live wallpapers. One of the things I really love about my Android is the cube effect when scrolling between screens from the homescreen. Sadly, this wasn’t an effect that my iPhone was capable of….until now.
Barrel is an iOS application by developer Aaron Ash that adds awesome graphic effects to the Springboard when scrolling through the homescreen of your iOS device. There are several different effects to choose from, take a look at the video for a demonstration of each one.
Unfortunately, Barrel is only available for Jailbroken iOS devices (hopefully iOS 7 will provide similar features). It can be purchased from Cydia and is well worth the $2.99 price tag.
We had another successful Polar Bear Plunge! I want to thank everyone who sponsored me by donating to this great cause.

Thank you again for your support!

I noticed that the video was steady (I must have used by trusty iPhone tripod mount to record the video:) so I decided to make a Cinemagraph out of it. Continue reading
