DeepEnd Cydia Tweak: 3D Effect For Your iPhone, iPod Touch SpringBoard From Ryan Petrich [Cydia]

Earlier in the week, week mentioned that a new tweak was coming to Cydia, to give you a 3D SpringBoard. Although, it is a good idea, the video demo left some of you underwhelmed. The tweak promises to give us a Nintendo 3DS style experience, but some of our readers found it to be unimpressive, and over priced.

We received a tip from Canadian iPhone developer, Ryan Petrich, that he has been working on something similar. His new tweak, called “DeepEnd“, gives the springboard actual depth. It uses the accelerometer, with some manipulation of your wallpaper, to really give you a 3D experience on your iDevice. Check out our quick video, for a demo:

There is no actual “app” installed. As with other tweaks, you adjust the settings from the native Settings app.

This tweak is still in beta, at version 0.1, but if you want to try it out, it is now live in Ryan Petrich’s beta repo: Just let the developer know if you have any issues, so that you might fix them, before the actual release.

Don't forget to follow on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

    This is actually an AWESOME APP!
    IT does look like it’s causing a tiny bit of lag when moving between pages, with Barrel installed. Anyways, considering that it’s free and in beta, this is a must have. NO PROBLEM AT ALL. No RAM problem, etc.

    Nice tweak, but I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it. It works best when you only look at it with one eye. Using both eyes (depth perception) mostly breaks the effect and it just looks like the background is sliding around on the same plane as the icons. With one eye closed, it looks like the icons are floating above the background, like in the YouTube video. Since the video is taken by a camera (a single “eye”), it retains the 3D effect. But it loses most of this effect when you view it with both eyes on your actual phone screen. It’s unfortunate, but that is not the developer’s fault.

    Cool tweak for playing around with, but not worth any money IMO.

    “some of our readers found it to be unimpressive, and over priced.”  I just tried to find this myself without success. Funny, though…I’ve seen many places stating it is FREE. How is that overpriced?

  • Mike McKinnon

    “3DBoard” is the tweak that some of our readers were talking about. “DeepEnd” is completely free and it’s in Ryan Petrich’s repo.
