Overboard Now iOS 4.2.1 Compatible, Looks Great On iPad | Cydia Store

Overboard, the useful tweak by Ryan Petrich which allows you to easily switch between your Springboard pages with a nice overlay interface, has been updated to work with all devices running iOS 4.2.1. This means the tweak not only works great on the iPhone and iPod Touch, it also runs smoothly on iPads jailbroken using redsn0w.

You can assign a custom activation method to Overboard (with Activator) or simply call it using the icon on the Springboard. I’m using a pinch gesture and it works really well. In the tweak’s settings you can adjust the way it displays pages and icons, choosing from different column layouts, backgrounds and visible dock. If you’re really that convinced Overboard will become your most used app, you cam make it your homescreen.

Overboard is available at $1.99 in the Cydia Store.
