Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of March 19th until today, March 25th as per the opinion of our staff. This is a recap.
1. Bars - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer phoenix3200
with the aim of making your iPhone or cellular iPad’s signal strength indicator more accurate by increasing its increment display abilities. For instance, instead of showing a whole bar for only about a 3.5 signal, it will show you 3.5 bars instead of 4. The signal bars are updated in real time so you always know your true signal strength instead of what the cellular providers want you to think you have.
2. Mail Enhancer Pro - $4.99
Mail Enhancer Pro
is Stefan Möllenkamp
’s newest version of Mail Enhancer
. It comes with features you would expect Apple’s Mail application to have already, but doesn’t have. The features are extensive: assigning up to three signatures per e-mail address, automatic HTML conversion, notification options, highlighting, swipe gestures, and message filtering. Mail Enhancer Pro has discounted pricing if you’ve bought Mail Enhancer and is totally worth the money for any iDevice e-mail addict.
3. Data Usage Monitor - $1.99
Data Usage Monitor
is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Elias Limneos
that allows you to better manage your cellular data. It will display your data download usage in real time as you are using your cellular data right in your status bar. From the preferences pane made available to you in the Settings application after installing Data Usage Monitor, you can set yourself a monthly limit and automatically turn off your cellular data when you reach your limit to help you save money on a monthly basis if you are capped. I highly recommend this tweak for any capped data users that are always being caught going over their caps and have to pay overages.
4. Sparrow Push - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Kim Streich
that attempts to add push notifications to the beautiful Sparrow
e-mail client for iOS ($2.99). Currently, the Sparrow application does not support push notifications because Apple would not allow it after the beta release. Kim found this to be heart breaking and therefore created Sparrow Push to make it work how he wanted it to. Currently, Sparrow Push only supports badges, however full Notification Center support is on its way and Sparrow will soon act like any other push-enabled application on iOS because of it. Kudos Kim!
5. AppUpdateNotifier - $1.49
is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS development firm S2 IT Consulting LLC that notifies you whenever you have an update for one of your App Store applications. It has full iOS 5 Notification Center support to give you lock screen, pop-up, and Notification Center alerts as well as its own widget for checking for updates manually or disabling auto-check. From the preferences pane in the Settings application after installing, you can choose the increments for when AppUpdateNotifier will look for updates for your applications. If you slack on updates, this tweak is a must for you.
