APP Review DreamBoard For Jailbroken Apple Devices

Fed up with winterboard and its lack of options to customize your device? Tired of its limitations? Well ladys and gentleman here we have a new app available on cydia that might cheer your device up for a while.

DreamBoard app

We all no when it comes to theming that winterboard has dominated over the last few years in the jailbreak scene but was this due to lack of challengers? Well DreamBoard is only in the early stages of development at 1.0 and already i feel when its developers release future updates it may well brush winterboard aside. As it is in its early stages it is a little bugggy and only works on a handful of devices but it certainly brightens up those devices.

The most important thing to note is the ease of use this APP brings, its incredible simply launch the application slide to your theme and sect apply and there you have it done. Yes there is no respring, reeboots ect this app does not rely on any other prerequisites to do a job it just does it and does it well. The app itself is a big download at 12mb but thats all the fuctionality built in.

As you can see there is a complimentary Android theme built which contains both the lovely clock widget and facebook widget. There is many settings built in like enabling all your apps to be on one vertical scrolling screen or toggle weather based overlays. For themers out there you can also create your themes and implement them into this wonderful app the instructions can be found on cydia.

I would suggest jailbroken iphone users give it a try iff you can handle some instability. This is definately one to keep your eye on.

How

1. Go to cydia >manage sources>edit>add and add this source  http://cydia.xsellize.com/

2. When sources are updated click on search and type Dreamboard and install and confirm.
