Popular Tweak SpeakEvents Gets iOS 6 Support, New Features
A popular notification announcement tweak called SpeakEvents
by iOS developer Mario Hros
has been updated Sunday afternoon with support for iOS 6. The tweak’s major competitor Aloud
, by iOS developer Ori Kadosh
, received an iOS 6 update at the beginning of February.
On top of iOS 6 support, the tweak also adds the ability to disable reading e-mail subjects, the ability to set volume levels up to 3x higher than before, and the ability to add custom pauses to announcements. To set pauses, the user can add /100/ to the custom announcement to create a 100ms pause, /250/ to create a 250ms pause, or /500/ to create a 500ms pause and so on.
In addition, users can now choose a separate volume level between the device being locked and the device being unlocked. More advanced users will be able to visit /Library/Application Support/SpeakEvents/Smileys.plist
to set their own settings for announcing smileys.
The update is free for all existing owners, however those looking to grab the tweak for the first time now that it is iOS 6-compatible will have to shell out 1.99 AUD to buy the application from Cydia's BigBoss repository.
