Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of July 2nd until today, July 8th as per the opinion of our staff. This is a weekly recap.
1. Quick Reply for Messenger - $1.99
Quick Reply for Messenger
by iOS developer Moeseth
, brings us a way to quickly reply to messages sent to us through the Facebook Messenger application. The interface resembles one of his previous tweaks called TwitkaFly, which is basically the same thing except that it offers quick reply and compose functionality for Twitter instead. Tapping on the banner notification with your message in it will toggle the quick reply interface. The tweak has some options to can configure, such as the ability to choose a sound that will be emitted when your response goes through. Since a lot of us are hardcore Facebook addicts, this tweak is worth it for anyone that likes to use the standalone messenger application for Facebook. It doesnít allow you to quick reply to messages if you donít have the free messenger application installed.
2. FoldMusic - $1.50
is a clever way to listen to specific music playlists by iOS developer Ariel Aouizerate
. It basically lets you put whole albums, or music playlists onto the home screen so that they are easy to access and also so you don't have to wait for the Music application to load up to start playing with your music. FoldMusic lets you name each music folder to whatever you want it to be and it has controls for letting you select the songs you want on the home screen. In the folder you will find music controls tucked into the folder interface along with the song list. For now, the tweak only works with the stock Music application, but a future update should change that. Anyone that uses their iOS device to listen to music should check this out.
3. MultiStorey - FREE
was created by iOS developer JamieD360
to help us manage our multitasking App Switcher in a more preferred manner. It increases the size of the multitasking App Switcher so that it can contain more application icons, which in turn means that we donít have to scroll around as much to find the applications we have running in the background. In addition, the tweak makes music controls from the multitasking App Switcher better by combining the volume slider with the music controls and also by adding a brightness slider and taking advantage of the space by showing more music information. This free mod is a great tweak to have if you use the multitasking App Switcher often.
4. CoverMeNot - FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ori Kadosh
that aims to make iOS 5's notification banners less obtrusive than they really are. By doubling the size of the status bar the same way it increases in size while in a phone call or while tethering, the status bar pushes your interface down just enough that an incoming banner wonít cover up important user interface buttons or controls that you may need to tap while the banner is present. Apple made the iOS 5 banner notification system to be less obtrusive, but it turns out to still be quite the annoyance.
5. TapVolumeToMute - FREE
by iOS developer CoolStar is a new useful jailbreak tweak for iPod touch owners allowing them to effectively and quickly mute their device. The iPhone and iPad come with mute switches, but the iPod touch does not and it takes a few moments to get the volume down manually using the buttons. TapVolumeToMute allows the iPod touch user to mute their device by bringing up the volume heads up display and then simply tapping on it. The device will remain muted until the user brings up the volume heads up display and taps on it again Ė at this point, the volume will return to its original setting. It aims to solve a problem and it does it in a great and effective way.
