Do you remember the Orbit app for jailbroken iPhone that brings the Mac’s Expose feature to iPhone? It’s a great and fancy cydia app. Another iPhone developer Ryan Petrich, who is the creator of the Clippy app, has released a similar application called Overboard that allows you to switch between Springboard pages in Exposé style.

Like Orbit, Overboard displays thumbnail preview of springboard pages that makes you easily determine the page to switch to. What’s more, it also adds extra configuration screen to let you customize how you’d like to activate Overboard: Home Button, SpringBoard or SpringBoard Pinch.

By default, Overboard displays the page thumbnail in three column. But you can also control the number of displayed column in the configuration screen. Further, it provides the support of Winterboard themes and performance improvement over Orbit. Overboard is a cydia application that only works on jailbroken iPhone. It’s available from Cydia Store for US$1.99. Simply launch cydia and search for “Overboard” to purchase it OR you can follow my simple guide below to install the cracked deb. file.

Note:Orbit also releases an update that adds home button support, search page, theme support, dynamic sizing and performance improvement.
