DirectionBar Now Available for Free in Cydia
On Sunday, ModMyi showed you DirectionBar
, a free jailbreak tweak that adds a live compass icon to your Status Bar by iOS developer Rudolf Lichtner
. DirectionBar updates in real time to show you what way North is, as shown above. While DirectionBar has been in its 'upcoming' stages for a few days now, the tweak is now readily available as a free download in the ModMyi repository.
After installing the tweak, you can head over the Settings application and open the DirectionBar preferences pane to configure the tweak’s options:
You’ll notice at the top that the tweak’s icon selector is grayed out. This is because you select the icon you want to use for the compass at the bottom of the display – it’s actually a line of buttons that you can select from. There are nine stock icons you can choose from by default, however the tweak is themable, so other developers can create their own icons that you will be able to download in Cydia.
After you make changes to the tweak’s preferences, you will need to respring to save your changes.
One thing we’ve noticed from our testing is that the compass icon in the Status Bar moves very fluidly. This tweak is a nice aesthetic feature for any iPhone, however one thing to note is that because it’s pulling your location, you might notice a small decrease in battery life. Nonetheless, this tweak is cool! Head over to Cydia’s ModMyi repository to download this tweak for free right now!
