If you're a SnapChat user, you might have use for a newfangled jailbreak tweak dubbed GhostPrefs by iOS developer Skylerk99. GhostPrefs is an all-in-one SnapChat improvement tweak for iOS 7 that gives you a ton of options for how your SnapChat application will behave.
The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable a number of different features that you can put to work in your SnapChat application:
Some of the features that you can enable or disable include the following:
- Sending replay alerts
- Sending screenshot alerts
- Sending typing alerts
- Adding media from your Camera Roll
- Breaking the daily replay limit
- Saving all text messages
- Disabling the character limit
- Manual story advancing
- Smarter filters
- Always showing the sub-label
- Never logging out
- Showing the open button
- Showing the save button
- Never starting the Snap timer
- Hiding the snap timer
- Hiding the new message count
- The camera flash
- The in-app settings
- The recent contacts
- The shutter sound
- The no received videos sound
- The online for live chat indicator
- Override the temperature filter
- Override the speed filter
A "Kill SnapChat" button is included at the bottom of the preferences pane, which can be used to close SnapChat so that all of your changes to the preferences pane can take effect in the SnapChat application.
The developer notes that GhostPrefs is compatible with other SnapChat jailbreak tweaks as well, but you will need to disable what are called "overlapping features," or features that have a common functionality, in order to prevent tweak conflicts.
If you want to give GhostPrefs a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. You'll want the free SnapChat application from the App Store (direct link) to take full advantage of GhostPrefs – as of this writing, it's compatible with version 7.0.5 of the App Store's SnapChat application.
