Best Tweaks of the Week 5/21 - 5/27
Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of May 21st until May 27th as per the opinion of our staff. This is a weekly recap.
1. Unlockize - $1.99
is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer John Coates
. Unlockize adds six awesome new unlock animations to iOS to brighten up your daily use of your device. The animations can all be used at once, however with the restriction that a different animation will be used every time you unlock your iOS device. The animations are graphically fluid and don’t eat up a ton of resources. This tweak is a must for anyone that loves adding customization to their iOS devices.
2. Reveal - $1.99
is a new jailbreak tweak created by the team of Joshua Tucker
and Conrad Kramer
. Reveal allows the user to extend notification banner and lock screen notifications so more of the messages can be read before the user has to respond to it. Usually, Apple only gives you a small preview of your notification and expects you to use your time to launch the application to view the notification in its entirety. This tweak allows you to scroll side-to-side on iOS 5 banners or scroll up and down on bubble notifications as well as double-tap lock screen notifications to see more of the notification. Reveal is recommended for people that want to save more time with notifications.
3. Wake With Weather - 99¢
Wake With Weather
is a new Siri extension by iOS developer rjharris. The extension works by querying a question of your choice to Siri after you acknowledge your morning alarms. For the tweak to work properly, you must type a question into Settings such as, “what is the weather going to be like?” Siri will launch after you dismiss your alarm to tell you the weather and any additional information you want to know (configured from the settings) so that you can see how your plans for the day are going to pan out as soon as you wake up.
4. NotiQuiet - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer thekirbylover
to allow users to keep notifications away while they're in certain applications. The tweak is great for when you are watching movies and don’t want notification popups ruining the movie for you. This inconvenience causes you to rewind just to see the pixels you missed while the banner or alert notification got in the way. The tweak allows you to pick which applications you don’t want to get notification popups when open. Notification Center and badge notifications will continue to stack in the background and out of your way.
