In case you were busy last week and didn’t get a chance to take a look at Cydia, don’t worry as we have compiled a list of all the new tweaks that were released in the week which are worth checking out. This week also saw a substantial amount of tweak releases, some of which you should try for sure.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
Saurik releases Cydia Impactor which allows you to remove jailbreak without updating to a new version of iOS
Safari features a cool animation when you change tabs but if you want to constantly switch back and forth between open tabs, it can slow the process. SafariSwiper is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to quickly switch between open Safari tabs with a swipe gesture.
We’ve some good news for fans of the Backgrounder tweak. Watchdog is a new beta jailbreak tweak that brings true app backgrounding to iOS 8 – iOS 8.4. You might be wondering what exactly does it mean to background apps. When you close an app, it will still continue to run in the background for a few minutes until it stops (depending on the type of the app). This means that all the tasks that are running within the app will be stopped until the next time that you open it.
Cydia currently displays a recommended list of packages labelled as ‘Featured’ for new users to install on their device. However, there’s still no way that you can find out which are the top paid and free packages just like the iOS App Store. Indulge is a new jailbreak tweak by Cydia developer Steven Rolfe that brings this much-awaited feature to Cydia.
Recently, Saurik updated Cydia to version 1.1.23 which brings a few new major features. One such feature includes the ability to downgrade Cydia packages if an older version is available on the repository where the tweak is hosted. This is a useful feature as some upgrades can make packages unstable on your device so its important to downgrade them back to the previous version.
