Best Jailbreak Tweaks of the Week (July 14 – July 20)

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.

Hermes – $0.99


If you’ve been looking for an extremely light weight quick reply tweak, then look no further. This is about as light weight as it gets. Just tap on your banner notification when you get a message and you’ll be able to quick reply. The nice thing about this is that it will work with Messages, Kik, and WhatsApp. Just make sure to toggle on your preferred messaging service in the settings.

HandyDialer – $3.99


HandyDialer is a bit on the pricey side, but a still a cool feature nonetheless. If you used to use T9, then this may bring back some memories. This tweak allows you to use T9 to type in contacts names within the phone app. Just start typing and the contact’s phone number and name will pop up and allow you to call them directly.

Slide to Reboot – Free


Here’s a simple tweak that keeps you from having to hold down the power button and home button to reboot your device. This method is a bit easier. Just hold down the power button and once your “Slide to power off” shows up, just tap on the knob and then you’ll be able to slide to reboot. Pretty convenient!

ListeningLauncher – Free


This tweak lets you set up an activator gesture to automatically open up the music app that is playing in the background. That way you never have to close whatever you’re doing to open up the music app. Just perform your gesture and it opens right up.

SwipeExpander – – Free


This is a nice tweak that lets you create shortcuts on your keyboard keys. You can add text or perform an action just by swiping up or down on a key that you customize. This makes texting or editing text on your device much easier. You’ll need to add a repo to grab this tweak:
