We’re back with another best tweaks of the week! This past week a few good jailbreak tweaks were released and if you haven’t been keeping track, we’d like to let you know what’s out there. We have Hermes, HandyDialer, Slide to Reboot, ListeningLauncher, and SwipeExpander. So, let’s go ahead and take a closer look at each of these.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
The jailbreak scene has been picking up speed as of late, and we’re back with our third jailbreak tweak roundup this month. In this edition, we take a look at some simple but useful jailbreak tweaks for iPhone and iPad: HUDSpeed, BookSong, PopSearch, CCSliders and InstaLove. Read ahead for a closer look at each.
While Apple announced at its WWDC keynote last month that it will be adding third-party keyboard support to iOS 8, extended keyboard functionality is something that the jailbreaking community has enjoyed for years. A couple of tweaks that come to mind are SwipeSelection and AltKeyboard, and today we take a look at SwipeExpander.
Following the release of the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak courtesy of the Chinese tool Pangu, a number of jailbreak tweaks became incompatible with the latest software version. You can cross the popular VNC utility Veency off that list, however, as Cydia creator Jay Freeman has updated the package with full support for iOS 7.1 or later.Â
While jailbreaking has seen tremendous growth and change over the past seven years, it would be a stretch to say that it has achievedÂ mainstream success. Apple has sold more than 800 million iOS devices over that span, but the latest public-facing figures reveal that less than 1 in 10 of those devices haveÂ been jailbroken.Â
After a few weeks in which jailbreak tweak releases seemed to be slowing to a crawl, the momentum seems to be picking back up again. Earlier this week, we shared a jailbreak tweak roundup consisting of Icon Resizer, TapTheAt and Aslock. This time around, we take a look atÂ DathKeys, TapToSnap, Floativator, OneThumb, MarkAsRead7 and Fully Masked Passwords.Â
Sometimes our hands aren’t always available to answer the phone. Maybe it’s because we’re washing dishes, or we just got done gardening and our hands are caked in dirt. Either way, if your phone rings, you don’t want to transfer that stuff onto your phone by swiping to answer. Now you can answer a call with a simple wave of your hand over the proximity sensor with HandsFree.
