    Im thinking of getting it but since its a huge app that really tweaks the entire system im a lil scared by it. lol

    I'm also wondering if I get it what are some tweaks it can replace where as I can delete other stuff I might have already installed?

    It offers a huge amount. It's a classic. I recently removed it in place of Flex. Flex doesn't do everything that springtomize can do, but it does almost everyone I was using springtomize for plus it can tweak other apps as well. I live springtomize. It does so much especially if you like manipulating the way your device looks. Everyone that likes to tweak their device needs to try it out at some point. It's that good.

    Best way to determine what it can replace is for you to post your list of installed tweaks. If you do that, I can tell you what it replaces.

    I don't notice any issues while using springtomize.

    It's a great app.

    1st app I install after jail breaking.

    Massive functionality but it's relatively light weight. Don't get the impression that it's heavy on resources.

    I appreciate the responses guys.

    Bumpy, is there any way I can make a list from my cydia installed packages? If not I can get them down manually when I get home.

    Yes. Use AppInfo from Cydia. Just email yourself a "simple" list of installed Cydia packages. Then either post it here or PM me and I'll go through it line for line. AppInfo makes it wicked simple to generate a list. Great for emailing yourself a backup of all your Contacts data too. Can never be too safe! :D

    In my experience it didnt use much ram or slow down the phone much. However, when I would lock my phone and come back to it about a half hour or hour later I would notice that my usage times were climbing a lot more than without the tweak installed. So something was going on in the background a lot with this installed. It drove me nuts so I deleted it! :)

    I just started to use flex and I have to say wow my phone loads thing quicker after removing springtomize. I also removed the preference plist if that matters. I didn't know any better because I have been using springtomize for more than a year.
