New iOS 8 Concept Lets You Expand Icons Into Widget Blocks [Video]

Posted by · 16565 views · Translate
Check out this new iOS 8 concept from Jay Machalani that lets you expand icons with a pinch-out gesture into widget blocks. The Block can be viewed momentarily then returned to an icon with a pinch-in gesture or you can release it to have the block stay on your SpringBoard.

Android has the Widget, Windows the Live Tile and now iOS the Block. Simply pinch an icon bigger to reveal more information and release to leave it. If you like iOS the way it is, nothing changes. If you want a little more, it's all there.

Machalani has created a video that explains his concept for the iOS Block.

"When you pinch the icon, you will see the transformation/transition into a Block and at that point you have two choices: Either you pinch it back to an icon since you got the information you need or you release your fingers and the icon will remain a Block on your iOS screen. This combination of transforming into a Block either to quickly consult or to change your home screen is critical. You can easily have your next calendar event showing on your Calendar block on your iPhone and you can quickly go through 3-4 apps using a quick pinch and pinch back maneuver on your iPad to quickly consult an app and not end up opening and closing every single one of them."

@the idickless pro AKA Apple GAyBoy:What are You? Apple AssMessenger, Apple will denied 100% that is getting ButtFuked and still loving it, and guess what you and Apple are getting Buttfucked left and right including your mama. You are the more pathetic GayBoy in all iclarified. Apple is complete Trash just like you are. See Reality Idiot, dumb Fuk you are clearly A Stupid TrollBoy that cannot read or see what's in front of you. Thanks to the Jailbreak community apple got this far, they had to copy Samsung, HTC, Nokia,LG and all the others and go big to get close to the competition. I can see you take it up the A$$ good. apple will always buy innovation and steal from others, and thanks to idiots like you that apple is where it is:But Apple says in their disclaimer they can (and might) take any and all ideas submitted and use them as if they are their own and not give any kind of compensation or recognition to those who send the ideas in. That's why Fukin Thief Job Is Dead, not good for humanity. And Apple pretty soon will go down.

Just get an android already. Stop waiting for Apple to copy it. They pretty much just see what other people are doing, and see what tweak makes it big in the he jailbreak world and give it to you. They should get heir own GOOD ideas.
