Upcoming Jailbreak Tweak Banana Provides Weather at a Glance with 3D Touch


We’ve seen Cydia developers coming up with tweaks that take advantage of 3D Touch to provide additional new shortcuts, add 3D Touch menu to unsupported apps and more. This time, team iOSCreatix has come up with a very nice concept of bringing a new 3D Touch feature to the Weather app.

The upcoming tweak that is dubbed as Banana (which is in reference to one of the developers being a huge fan of Minions movie) lets users view the weather forecast at a glance with 3D Touch. It works by displaying a weather forecast of the day when you perform 3D Touch gesture on the stock Weather app.

Normally, the Weather app doesn’t come with support for 3D Touch but with the tweak installed, a 3D Touch menu will be added to the app that displays a quick summary of your current location’s weather information. Such information include the current, maximum and minimum temperatures of the day and a forecast of the weather at different hours of the day along with an icon that represents the weather condition such as sunny, cloudy etc.

Indeed, the concept of the tweak is very interesting and by bringing 3D Touch support to the Weather app, it makes the tweak even more useful and worth the attention. The tweak will also work on devices that don’t support 3D Touch. My guess is that it will work on such devices only when you have a 3D Touch tweak installed such as RevealMenu.

The team hasn’t provided any information as to when the upcoming tweak will be released but they have mentioned that it will be available for free, which makes it even more exciting. We will keep you informed as soon as it hits the Cydia store.
