Get a cool dock on your iOS device with Harbor

By | February 5, 2015

Are you a fan of the way the dock works over on all of the Apple computers that have been released until now? If you know what we are talking about, then chances are that you like the idea and you may have thought about whether it would be fun to have the same feature over on your iPad or other iOS device.

For those who are not really sure on what we are talking about, Apple is famous for having an interactive dock, where apps can be stored over on the Mac OS computers. With this in mind, apps are not stored oFn the desktop, but rather in a dock, thus making them accessible at just about any time. However, what’s great about it is the fact that users can go ahead and fit in quite a large number of apps and change its size as well. There’s also a feature that magnifies the app that the user is pointing their cursor at to make them more visible, in the case that there are a large number of apps being stored on the dock at the same time.Harbor1-1024x768

Well, wouldn’t it be nice to have the same feature over on an iPad, or iPhone? This is now possible with the help of an incredibly well made Cydia tweak known by the name of Harbor. To put things better into perspective, with the use of this Cydia tweak, people from all around the world will be able to place as many apps as they would like on their dock. The more apps are put, the smaller their icons get so in the case that you would like to open one up, simple scroll along the dock to find it and then click on it. When you are dragging, you will notice that each of the apps that your finger moves over magnifies for a brief period of time, just as it would over on the Mac OS dock.

When it comes down to the ease of use of this Cydia tweak, it is safe to assume that anyone who understands the concept will be able to use it without encountering any trouble. The tweak also has a preference panel with a kill switch, but also a couple of more features, such as the ability to set whether the tweak should bounce as it is opening, flush with the bottom age, whether the name of the app should be displayed and whether users would like to use the default dock background or select a custom one, all of which are practically great features that make the Habor act more like the actual Mac dock.

Based on everything that has been outlined so far, what do you personally think about Harbor? Does it look like a Cydia app that you would consider using on your iPad? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
