The new Cydia Tweak Iris Shot is a simple tweak that replaces the not so appealing screenshot flash with a very appealing camera shutter effect. Iris Shot is integrated into the Settings app, where you can find the enable/disable toggle and a slider for the animation duration. Let’s be honest here; this is not a feature-packed tweak, but it does give you the ability to say “Mine is different, and looks better.”
iOS has many features and is very quick, but what lays on top of all this is the built-in animations. Animations are a big part of the satisfaction when it comes how much the users enjoys using a certain software. So let’s just go ahead and point out, iOS has very nice animations. Thus, having the Iris Shot tweak definitely adds some extra icing to the cake.
In Cydia you will find that there are tons of tweaks that add different animations. This is partly because it is just nice to have this “eye-candy” to make using your iOS device look even more slick than it already is. If you are interested in the Iris Shot Cydia tweak then you can find it through the BigBoss repo for free (requires iOS 4 or 5).
Do you enjoy having the extra eye-candy, or would you rather not have any animations at all? Let us know in the comments below…
