In case you've missed out on the new jailbreak tweaks Cydia has seen, this recap will highlight the tweaks we've shown you this week. These are in no specific order.
1. Auxo – $1.99
is an amazing App Switcher replacement for iOS that shows applications in a much more beautiful manner in the App Switcher and gives us a better iPod control interface, as well as a new toggle interface. Auxo knows when your applications are in use and will alert you when you’re about to close out of an application that is in use. The tweak also adds the ability to easily close out of all applications at once. If you have a jailbroken device, Auxo is a must-have.
2. Boover – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that allows you to manage the size and location of your application badges. With these powerful features, you can have control over where and how these badges appear on your application icons so that they match your very own tastes. If you feel that Apple’s badges are obtrusive, you will be able to make them less obtrusive with Boover. It’s a great tweak for those that simply want customization options.
3. Topography for Google Maps – FREE
Topography for Google Maps
makes it so that your new Google Maps application from the App Store can have a new topography option. Topography shows the terrain style of a location on the map without anything else, such as buildings and roads. This view is great for seeing steep mountains in certain areas. The tweak replaces the Google Maps shortcut with the new topography option. It's a free improvement for the awesome Google Maps app, so why not grab it?
4. HUDFade – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that adds the same animation to the introduction of the heads up display, as you would normally see in the dismissal of the heads up display. It’s a very subtle tweak that will be hard to notice over time, but it’s definitely an improvement over the current animation.
5. Show/Hide Recipients – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that simply gives you more pixels to work with in group conversations from Apple’s Messages application. It’s compatible with both SMS and iMessage and makes it so you can double-tap on the chat window to show or hide the recipient bar at the top of the screen. Hiding the bar gives you a few more pixels to dedicate solely to your conversation instead.
6. Always On Proximity – FREE
Always On Proximity
is a new free jailbreak tweak that will give you the control you need over your iOS device’s proximity sensor. If you’re in an engaging conversation with someone and you find it annoying to have to unlock your iOS device in between each message that you send, then Always On Proximity will give you the ability to turn on the proximity sensor on the device so you can slide your device in your pocket to turn the display off and then take it back out of your pocket to turn the display back on. This process keeps your battery saved while at the time same doesn’t require you to punch in a passcode or slide the unlock slider each time to send a message. You can then disable the proximity sensor with the Activator action again – each time you enable or disable the proximity sensor, you’ll see a banner notification.
7. PokerFace for Facebook Poke – FREE
PokerFace for Facebook Poke
is a new free jailbreak tweak that allows users of Facebook’s new Poke application to keep messages from disappearing after a designated time limit and to save images without notifying the other person. If you use Facebook’s new Poke application, check this tweak out and also take a look at Poke'em-all
for Facebook Poke.
8. MiniBanners Pro – 99¢
has been re-released with additional features and a smaller price tag. The tweak gives you a new look for notification banners and lets you customize the text, colors, and animations of the banners. It also comes with many options for how the banners will react when you interact with them after popping up. This tweak is great for anyone that doesn't care much for Apple's own notification system.
9. LockMemos – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that will persistently show a memo on your lock screen or your home screen (your choice) showing the memo that you type into the preferences pane in the settings application. It’s much more persistent than Apple’s Reminders application because it won't stop until you disable the tweak or you delete the memo from the preferences pane, so even those thick-skulled people will be able to remember things with LockMemos. It’s great for reminding yourself of things.
