This might be another Cydia mod you can add to your favorites list: AndroidLoader.
This mod adds a slider to the home screen, allowing users to slide up in order to load apps, similar to Android’s default launcher.
AndroidLoader was developed by Surenix, who authored SBSettings themes such as iDisplay and iRetina, is now venturing into what appears to be a full-blown mod. This app, which will soon be available on Cydia.
The application loader will essentially work like a big folder: slide up to see the apps, slide it down to dismiss them. There are also basic audio controls. We wish we didn’t have to slide the panel all the way up just to get to the controls, it might just cause too much screen clutter, but that’s almost a non-issue.
This is a nice mod, no doubt about it, but I fail to see its practical application. iOS already offers multiple home screens by default, which are easier to scroll through than a continuous list that can have hundreds of apps, and more importantly, users are already able to access everything on their phone effortlessly with Spotlight.
For $2.99, I don’t think AndroidLoader will be worth getting for most people. That said, if you’re a die-hard fan of Android’s application slider, you sure won’t mind spending that money once this app comes out on Cydia any moment now.
No iPad support is available at this point.
