Carabiner gives your iPhone’s Home screen a more unified user experience


Apart from a few refreshed application icons and a nice new wallpaper here and there, Apple hasn’t done much to improve the Home screen experience since the original iPhone. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to anyone that it’s a point of interest when it comes to customization on jailbroken handsets.

One such example is a brand-new jailbreak tweak release dubbed Carabiner by iOS developer LaughingQuoll. As shown in the screenshot example above, Carabiner crams several interfaces into the Home screen, providing a gorgeous all-in-one experience that provides more information at a glance.

Right out of the box, Carabiner displays useful information at the top of your Home screen, including the date, time, and weather. Users can scroll vertically while viewing the Home screen to look at their apps and to view missed notifications, if there are any.

If we could describe Carabiner as quickly as possible, we would call it a Home screen, Lock screen, and Notification Center all-in-one experience. As you can see from the screenshot example above, everything meshes together beautifully as you scroll up, as the icons seem to just disappear behind the date and time display.

Carabiner doesn’t come with any options to configure, and so what you see above is ultimately what you get after installing the tweak. If you’re interested in giving Carabiner a try for yourself, then you can download it free of cost from the Packix repository in Cydia or Sileo. Carbiner supports all jailbroken iOS 11 and 12 devices.
