Upcoming Tweak 'DirectionBar' Puts a Live Compass Icon in the Status Bar
Do you like those small, aesthetically pleasing modifications that make your iOS device even more fun to use? If so, you will probably enjoy an upcoming jailbreak tweak called DirectionBar
(code-named StatusCompass) by iOS developer Rudolf Lichtner
DirectionBar adds a new icon to the Status Bar. The icon is actually a miniature compass, and it updates in real time to show you what way North is, so the tweak will always be running in the background. It will appear in the Status Bar from any application, from the home screen, and even from the lock screen.
By default, the Status Bar icon is a two-toned white and red icon; however, the icon will be themeable, and come with many pre-loaded options to pick from. The icon shown in the screenshot above is just one of the number of options that the tweak comes with as an icon choice.
DirectionBar will come with some options to configure, so it’s not exactly as simple as it seems. We will have more information about the tweak when it is released – DirectionBar will be made available for free in the ModMyi repository in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!
