Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of May 28th until June 3rd as per the opinion of our staff. This is a weekly recap.
1. PaperLock - $2.99
is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Apocolipse
. The tweak allows you to have three new unlocking animations. The animations include that of a sheet of paper being peeled, a band aid being peeled, or a plastic tab being peeled. All of the graphics and animations are beautiful and fluid. Surenix
, a well-known graphic designer, had a part in designing the graphics. The tweak also allows you pick which side you peel from, as you can move the camera grabber to either side of the screen to make peeling more comfortable to you.
2. Jukebox - 99˘
is a new Notification Center widget by iOS developer aricha. Jukebox allows you to control your Music application from Notification Center using a stylish interface that shows you the album artwork and information about the song being played. It includes not only touch-based buttons, but also tap and swipe gestures that you can use for controlling your music. From the widget you can even adjust your device volume and also Tweet your current playing song. The widget currently only supports the stock Music application, but support for third party music applications is in the works.
3. PasswordPilot Pro - $1.99
is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Filippo Bigarella
. It’s an upgraded version of the free jailbreak tweak, PasswordPilot. Unlike the free version, the pro version includes master password settings for keeping people from tinkering with your settings. The tweak will auto-inject your Apple ID information into the prompts when you download or update applications, download music from iTunes, download content from the iBooks store, and even when you log into Find My Friends. All in all, the tweak is great because it allows you to do things quicker without the inconvenience of typing your password all the time.
4. Blackout - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Adam Bell
. The tweak will make the black status bar the permanent status bar for your device. Usually when you open some applications, you will be introduced with Apple’s classic gray status bar. When on the home screen, the status bar is transparent and you can see the wallpaper through it. With blackout, the status bar will be pitch black no matter what – all the time. For many, this is the preferred color and appearance. In apps where the status bar is not visible, this tweak will not show a black status bar.
5. RapidLinks - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer ravirajm
that allows you to invoke an Activator action to open a list of your top five favorite Web sites. You cannot use the shake device Activator action to invoke the tweak and it is recommended that you use a swipe on the status bar action to invoke it. You must configure the Web sites from your Settings application after installing the tweak. The faster access to your favorite Web sites means that you don't have to wait for Safari to load up to open your bookmarks and the interface keeps Apple's design principles in mind.
