  • What's New In Cydia: July 18, 2011
    Today we cover a lot of new apps and tweaks including CallBar, iStartupSound, Anicons, SpotEnhancer, MessageTo and CustomGrid

    CallBar
    Elias Limneos (@limneos) and Joshua Tucker (@sh8kespeare)


    CallBar is an great new tweak which brings the slick iOS 5-style notification to incoming calls. Normally incoming calls kick you out of whatever your doing and invade your screen. You can access all the usual functions as usual; answer, decline, or dismiss.

    Supporting both phone calls as well as FaceTime, CallBar offers a a function that we are surprised Apple hasn’t added to iOS 5 yet, and with beta 3 being released recently we’re not sure it will get added before the next version of iPhone’s software becomes public.

    CallBar is compatible with all versions of iOS and even works with iOS 5! Available on Cydia for $3.99

    iStartupSound
    Vladislav Korotnev (@vladkorotnev)

    This app was covered earlier this week by Josh, and has gained a lot of hype ever since it's release. The tweak simply allows you to change the sound of re-springing your device. The name is misleading but nonetheless is still a cool new tweak for those that wish to customize their iDevice even further.

    Find iStartupSound in Cydia for FREE! Read more about this release here.



    Anicons
    Dan Zimmerman (@DanZimm)


    Another great new tweak available in Cydia. Josh also covered this one in depth earlier this week, read more here.

    The quick rundown: Anicons incorporates important settings toggles directly on your SpringBoard for easy access. When you tap and interact with the toggles, they turn components on/off and make special animations to show you what state the particular toggle is in. For toggles such as 3G or WiFi, the button shows what the signal strength is and changes depending on reception and connectivity.

    Find Anicons in Cydia for $1.99.



    SpotEnhancer
    Andrea Oliva


    This tweak comes from the ever popular TweekWeek project, and is a rather unique one, depending on your knowledge of command line input. SpotEnhancer essentially turns your Spotlight page into a command line allowing you to enter things like "get time" and have a popup appear displaying the time. While it's not exactly practical, it is kinda cool.

    Andrea Oliva has added some commands on his website which are:

    Get date – Displays the current date
    Get time – Displays the current time
    New message – Opens create text message
    New mail – Opens create Email
    New call – Launches the dial pad for call
    Google – Open Safari to Google.com
    Yahoo – opens Safari to Yahoo.com
    Bing – Opens Safari to Bing.com
    FB – Launches Safari to Facebook.com
    Twitter user – Search Twitter for user
    If you want to check this one out, find SpotEnhancer on Cydia for FREE!



    MessageTo
    Andrea Oliva

    Another interesting tweak from Andrea for TweekWeek. This one allows you to quickly compose a new message or new email by double tapping on either the Mail icon or the Messages icon.

    Grab this one in Cydia for FREE!



    CustomGrid
    @Crossingman.


    CustomGrid does pretty much what it says. Install this tweak and you can easily change your icon layout to be however you please without the regular restrictions.

    CustomGrid is available in Cydia for a $0.99

      Callbar is an awesome feature, bet Apple will leech this off the JB community as well. Developers should start suing Apple for copyright infringement to get money they deserve.

      i just purchased the Callbar App, but it keeps crashing on me when i get an incoming call. I have couple other JB Apps and removed all them and still crashes. I have an Iphone 4 ios 4.1 The next thing i will try is to update to 4.3.3 and re JB and load just Callbar. My other apps are, Iblacklist, SBsettings, SBrotate, Five-Column, Iannounce, Activator, Voiceactivator, My3g, MyWi, infinidock, intelliscreen. I sent my crash report to both author and bigboss. Anyone have any ideas?

      Chances are its probably iAnnouce, iBlacklist, SBRotator, and Intelliscreen.

      If you've emailed the author, than we have received it. We're doing the best we can - Elias has been on vacation but expect an update soon. We appreciate your patience.

      One thing if you haven't: send a crash log as well if you can. That would be greatly appreciated.

      PLEASE HELP! I bought Call Bar and it is not working correctly. I have iPhone 4 version 4.3.3 The issue I am having is when my phone is on vibrate it seems to work fine but when my phone is not on vibrate it reboots the phone and goes into safe mode. I've tried rebooting my phone, I've tried reinstaling the app and nothing seems to work. I have tried contacting the author of the app 4 times and no response. If anyone knows what the issue is and can help me out that would be great!

      Thanks

      Haven't seen a response to these last post on the crashing issue. I just installed it and it's crashing my phone as well when a call comes in. What's up?

      Tweeted the devs...they say a fix is forthcoming....

      want to do an update,
      I reinstalled the new updated Callbar 0.4-209 and it now works with the apps i listed above.
      Love this feature. There is only one thing i can see that could use in the app, is that when you get the call, the callbar shows up will you are using another app and if you need to answer it would be nice to be able to able answer the call with a bluetooth headset but yet not get bumbed out of what you are doing.

      Edit, they just posted a updated version 0.5-13 just as i posted this, updating the package. Will Re-review.
