Best Tweaks of the Week 6/4 - 6/10
Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of June 4th until June 10th as per the opinion of our staff. This is a weekly recap.
1. EmojiPro - 99¢
by iOS developer Hiraku
was introduced to bring a whole bunch of new Emojis to iOS. These Emojis are for iOS 5.1+ and Mac OS X Lion+, so don't expect people on older operating systems to be able to see them. For some reason, Apple had these Emojis closed off from the public's use. This jailbreak tweak not only unlocks them for you, but also adds them to the stock iOS Emoji keyboard. If you like using Emojis when text messaging your friends, this tweak is a good addition to iOS that will make you or anyone else smile almost as big as the large Emoji smiley face.
2. NCPad - FREE
by iOS developer thekirbylover
brings full-size notification banners to any iPad running iOS 5 so that the notifications feel more iPad-like. Normally, notification banners on the iPad are small and just don't seem to cosmetically look great on the iPad. With these larger banners, not only are all of the screen's pixels dedicated to a nice-looking notification banner, but you can also see more of your notification message at once. Unfortunately, NCPad doesn't increase the size of Notification Center – just the banners. This is a great free tweak that all jailbroken iPad owners should try out.
3. DockColorize - FREE
by iOS developer gil ben moshe
allows any iOS user to change the color of their home screen dock or their multitasking App Switcher to any color they want. There are six built-in colors to choose from: black, yellow, green, pink, purple, and blue. If you don't like any of these colors, you can opt to add your own image files to the filesystem with an SSH client or iFile and link the tweak to these images using the directions in the preferences pane. If you like customizing everything, then this tweak will help you gain control of two more areas of iOS!
4. BannerDisable - FREE
is a cosmetically gorgeous way to disable intrusive iOS notifications by iOS developer Ron Melkhior
. BannerDisable is prettier than most other alternatives because it is so simply designed. The tweak adds a switch right under the Airplane Mode switch. By enabling the switch, you can disable all lock screen notifications and all iOS 5 banners. Notification Center notifications as well as icon badges will continue to stack in the background. This way, the screen will never light up again while it's sitting on your nightstand and wake you up!
