The application Dock exhibits a vastly different behavior on the macOS platform than it does on any iPhone or iPad, and if you want that wasn’t the case, then you would possibly take an interest in a very newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Harbor 3 by iOS developer Evan Swick.
Harbor 3 is predicated on the first Harbor tweak, which as some veteran jailbreakers might recall, delivered a macOS-like Dock experience on the iOS platform. With it, you’ll scroll through your apps along with your finger. Moreover, very like on your Mac, you’ll witness a magnification effect as you are doing this very like what you see within the screenshot examples above.
One of the plethoras of advantages Harbor 3 brings to the table is that you just can break the normal four-icon limit and as many apps as you’d like.
Harbor 3 automatically resizes the Dock to align with the quantity of apps you’ve added, and if you add plenty, then the icons can get particularly small. For this reason, the tweak’s built-in macOS-like magnification comes in handy.
Harbor 3 adds a preference pane to the Settings app where you’ll configure some different options:
Here, you can:
- Configure the wave animation width via slider
- Configure the wave animation height via slider
- Toggle the classic spring animation on or off on demand
- Toggle the app-closing animation on or off on demand
- Configure the app animation via a slider
- Choose what number times apps bounce when launching
- Configure how long it takes between bounce effects
- Enable or disable status dots for running apps
- Hide or show the Dock’s background
Harbor 3 plays nicely with jailbroken iOS 13 devices, and if you’re fascinated by a more immersive application Dock experience on your device, then you’ll purchase Harbor 3 for $3.99 within the Packix repository via your preferred package manager.
