If you have been in the Jailbreaking scene for some time I am sure you have heard of the tweak Orbit. Orbit allows to instantly and easily switch between pages on your home screen. Inspired by the ‘iPhone Expose’ concept, Orbit is the best tweak if you have multiple pages of apps and are looking for the best way to quickly navigate through them. Up until the last little while Orbit has only been compatible with the 3.x firmware generation but just recently the developer has made Orbit compatible with the iOS 4 firmware for all to enjoy!
If you are interested in the Orbit tweak you can find it through Cydia for a price of $1.99! Let us know if you are going to install orbit on your iDevice running iOS 4 in the comments section below…
Note: Orbit is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad on the iOS 4 and 3.x firmware generation.
orbit or overboard??
I know it looks like Overboard, but this is another take called Orbit. Confused me as well aha :P
Yea, I already have Overboard, and the Overboard wallpaper, which have worked on my iP4 since forever. Use it all the time.
But is this better than Overboard?

first off, its awesome that this developper could update orbit in time for ios 4. good job. second, overboard has been around on ios 4 forever now, works flawlessly, and on top of that extends that maximum number of pages allowed on homescreen.
Since iOS 4.x.x and the introduction of folders, I hardly know anybody having more than 2 pages of icons/folders. Me, for instance, only have 1 page and 1 row on the second page (I could have have merged my only row on the second page, but I like Barrel tweak, so I kept it). FolderinFolder is another tweak that kills the necessity of having more than one page. I think this tweak is nice, but I don’t think he’ll be selling much of that; that should have been a free tweak… Just my take…
why would you want more than 12 pages? You know you can use folders now, right?
And there are tweaks like infinifolder, scrollingboard and few others that lets you have as many icons as you’d like in each folder? FoldersinFolders let you have folders inside folders as well. To me folder are way better than having to scroll pages and pages of apps…

Is there a tweak that lets you have as many pages for your apps as you like and not 11 or 12 that apple have restricted it to?
