Infinidock – the jailbreak app that allows you to place an unlimited number of apps on the iPad (or iPhone) dock, and scroll through them – works quite well on the iPad. This is one of my very favorite jailbreak apps. I find it hugely helpful to have lots of frequently used apps on the dock.
I’ve been very shy so far in experimenting with jailbreak apps on the iPad, as the whole jailbreak arena for this device is still in its infancy. I am now beginning to try out a few things though, and I’m very happy to see that Infinidock works.
Infinidock lets you fit up to 10 icons on the dock at once – if you can handle having pretty much zero space between them. I’ve found that 6-7 fit comfortably though, in portrait mode – which shows around 9 when you flip it to landscape mode.
There is one notable glitch with Infinidock at the moment: when you switch orientation mode, scrolling stops working. There is an acceptable (to me) workaround for it – you just press and hold on any icon to get apps into ‘wiggle mode’ and then tap the home button to stop that mode. Scrolling works again after that. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon, but I can live with it for now.
You can find Infinidock now in the Cydia app store. I purchased it a long while ago for the iPhone and it counted me as having already purchased it when installing on the iPad – but I believe it is a $0.99 app.
