    anybody use this?

    its a springboard rotator to use with landscape. it is $1.99 at cydia. didnt find much review on here. since this app has been updated to work with iso4, just wondering if anyone else have been using it?

    its so buggy and laggy. i bought it and felt jipped. ever since i bought it, its only rotated once for me. i disabled it in mobilesubstrate.

    Definitely a waste of money.

    The dev claims to be working on bug fixes though. We'll see. I have it disabled in SBSettings for now.

    I had the same experience. Also, would crash if you tried to rotate the phone with a folder open. I have completely uninstalled it for now...maybe I will give it a shot after the next update.

    It was cool for a few minutes, but it was slow to rotate even on an iPhone 4.


    And like others have said, it crashes if you rotate with a folder open.



    Never reinstalled after I restored.

    I dont really understand the point/benefit of this tweak. Is it just for fun because I don't see it serving any purpose.

    in my mind it would be just cool that you could go landscape everywhere.I allmost allways hold my phone on landscape mode when its possible.

    The ipad rotates springboard, so I was surprised OS4 didn't bring that to the phones.

    The author tweets that he will submit bugfixed versions of his sw, including SBrotator. However, my guess is that he will just keep adding aditional 'cool' features and transitions instead of addressing the core problem. I so looked forward to this package when it was announced but it was a waste of $ and more importantly - my time

    SBrotator help

    I got SBrotator (cracked) 2.1.5 on iTouch gen 3, and it works perfectly with very little lag. But I can't download anything from cydia because it tries to download SBrotator again but says ''this app requires a paid app to operate'' and then quits the download. Help?

    I tried it when it first came out and it worked fine with no lag. This was on an iPhone 4. I don't have it anymore as I found I didn't think to use it.

    Maybe if you weren't downloading cracked apps?

    You won't get much help for that here. I would just pony up the 2 bucks. Sorry

    I've been using SBR4 since it's release and have been very pleased with it. There are a few small bugs the dev is working on but nothing major from my experience. Awesome tweak.
