ActiveBoard: Makes Home Screen App Icons Glow With Incoming Notifications And Running Apps

Since Apple released its first iOS  from a long time, me and many people didn't like the iOS app badge icons. Until now people still believe that there could be anyway to make the app icons look more better and gives them a shiny look, here comes a new jailbreak tweak called ActiveBoard...

ActiveBoard which is an evolved form of the popular tweak for iOS 6 called ActiveDock, and the way it works is very simple. When an app is running in the background, its icon will show a white light glowing behind it, and when a notification is pending, it will show a red glowing light instead. Additionally, when an app is backgrounded and an unread notification is present, it will alternate between red and white.

As long as you are running the tweak, you will find the apps look shiny and gives a bright look for anyone see it. 

Thanks to iOS developer Filippo Bigarella and designer Surenix, ActiveDock has been reimagined and reborn into a new tweak called ActiveBoard. This revamp brings a similar feature set to iOS 7 with a few extra bells and whistles. ActiveBoard has moved away from its predecessor’s OS X inspiration and was designed with a native look and feel that definitely fits in with iOS 7. This is definitely a tweak that you need to see in action to fully appreciate the beauty.

And here's a video review made by 9to5mac:

The only downside with the notifications is that you’re losing an app’s badge count if you decided to disable badges. It’s not necessarily a deal breaker though. ActiveBoard provides a much cleaner home screen experience with the added background activity feature.

As you might imagine, you will need to be running iOS 7 or higher on an iPhone or iPad in order to enjoy the benefits offered by ActiveBoard, but provided you can meet this prerequisite, be sure to give it a whirl.

ActiveBoard is available for $1.99 from Cydia store via BigBOss repo... GIve it a try and let us know what do you think about it.
