  • 'Volume Amplifier' Can Be Used to Amplify the Speaker Volume By 200% on the iPhone 5

    We’ve all been in that situation where it is hard to hear the person that you’re on the phone with. Luckily, a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Volume Amplifier by iOS developer hacx is out and it works with Apple’s latest iPhone – the iPhone 5. The developer notes that Volume Amplifier is different from other tweaks in Cydia claiming to do the same thing, because rather than editing a configuration file, Volume Amplifier actually amplifies the audio stream.

    Using the tweak is simple. You can simply just start using it after you install it:

    Once your volume has already hit 100% via the speaker, you can continue to press the volume up button on the side of the device to amplify the volume even more.

    When you surpass the default 100% volume, a colored amplifier indicator appears at the top and bottom of the volume level indicator. Above the volume icon, the tweak tells you the percentage that the volume has been amplified by. You can reach a maximum of 200% amplification before you top out.

    In the event that you want to quickly undo all amplification, you can set an Activator action to reset the amplification to default on demand.

    Volume Amplifier doesn’t work for things like listening to music because the sound in the bottom speaker is already loud enough for most people. The tweak only works for the front-facing speaker that touches your ear when you’re in a phone call. Currently, Volume Amplifier only works with the iPhone 5 on iOS 6.0 and later. The developer says he will add support for the iPhone 4S/iPhone 4 if enough people request it.

    If you would like to grab this tweak and start having clearer phone calls in loud environments, you can download Volume Amplifier from Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99.

      Cheap *** greedy people like you are why we can't have nice things. It's why the App Store market is so full of crappy *** freemium games, because cheap idiots like you wanted everything for nothing.

      Now, I do agree that it would be nice for the more obscure tweaks like this to have a trial period, but then that's the reason ModMy reviews tweaks like these.

      Moral of the story: stop being such cheap asses and give developers what they deserve for their tweaks. There are loads worth the dollar or two they ask for.
      I'm not saying that devs don't deserve money for their hard work. but done of these are ridiculous and useless to the point of not needing to be paid for. And by the way I do code but the problem is I don't have the attention span to every finish anything that I ever start. More trials would be nice too but things like themes don't deserve any cash. I've made plenty of themes and I never have and never will charge for them.

      Because that's not an actual iOS version and iPhone 5 didn't exist with iOS 5.
