iPhone Apps: Hood v1.0 by RiP Dev

25 11 2008

Hood v1.0 is a quick little app that lets you toggle AirPort, Bluetooth, kill active application and monitor the memory usage in real time. Hood is available in Installer.app, its works just like SBSettings, you slide your finger across the status bar, and a panel slides down with all your toggles. There you can turn your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on or off. You can also kill and monitor currently running applications.

The function of Hood v1.0 is similiar with Wifi Toggle but i think the Hood UI is too interactive rather than Wifi Toggle. You can also check out my post here about Wifi Toggle for a comparison.

Install Hood v1.0 via Installer

Step 1: Launch Installer by tapping installer icon on your SpringBoard. Then select “categories” on haptic menu and select “Utilities”, you might see “Hood” apps tap it to install. Don’t forget to restart your SpringBoard after the installation completed to activate it.
