How to rotate iPhone apps icons? When it comes to jailbreaking tweaks, Ryan Petrich is one of the best jailbreak tweak developers around, and his latest concoction IconRotator is another Gem of a jailbreak tweak. Ryan Petrich usually develops very simplistic and practical jailbreak tweaks that make you wonder why Apple didn’t implement them in the first place. IconRotator is just another one of his jailbreak tweaks that adheres to the same philosophy.
IconRotator is a simple jailbreak tweak that lets you rotate the orientation of your App icons in sync with your iPhone’s physical orientation. It’s plain brilliance really, to have the icons always face towards you no matter if you are holding the iPhone in any way; whether you are lying in bed, crouching on the couch or hiding under bed. IconRotator would make sure that the App icons are in sync with the physical orientation of your iPhone.
Now IconRotator won’t change the orientation of your screen but it will only change the orientation of the App icons so that always face upright. Not only that, but it also works for the icons that are inside folders as well. The animations are pretty fast and look great, plus the jailbreak tweak is a pretty light package itself so won’t cause any sluggishness on your iPhone.
IconRotator has not been uploaded to any default Cydia repository but it has been uploaded to the developers own repository http://rpetri.ch/repo/. Install this Repo in Cydia and download IconRotator from there for free.
