Cause an iOS icon calamity with Graviboard

Dec 6, 2010 - 2 Comments

Graviboard is a hysterical app that is available from the Cydia App Store that causes your iOS icons to become gravity and touch sensitive. Tilt the iPad and watch as your iOS desktop icons tumble and fall in the direction that your iPad is pointing. Grab an icon and toss it into others to cause a virtual trainwreck as the icons collide and scatter, bouncing off one another in a calamitous icon crash.

Is it useful? Nah, of course not, but not every app needs to be useful to be fun. Graviboard works on the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone, and can be bought for $2.99 from the Cydia Store, and yes, that means you have to jailbreak your iOS device in order to access Cydia.

Watch the video, it’s pretty amusing and by using the same song in the iPad commercial you get a nice parody effect which is good for some laughs too. This would make a fantastic app to prank someone with,

A hat tip to MacStories for tracking this down.
