Best Tweaks of the Week 2/6 - 2/12
Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of February 6th until today, February 12th as per the opinion of our staff.
1. AirBlue Sharing - $4.99
AirBlue Sharing is a new jailbreak application by iOS developer Eric Day that lets you transfer files from one device to another over Bluetooth. The features are deeply integrated into iOS allowing you to send all kinds of media files such as: contacts that you've added to your iOS Address Book, music that you want to spread to all of your computers without syncing through iTunes, notes that you've recorded for yourself in your Notes application, photographs and video footage that you want to share between devices from your Photos application, and moreover - voice memos that you've recorded to remind yourself of things. It works with multiple other kinds of popular platforms such as Android, Windows, Mac OS X, Blackberry, Nokia, and more.
2. WeeTrackData for Notification Center - $1.99
WeeTrackData for Notification Center is a third party Notification Center widget designed by iOS developer Albert Schulz to help you manage your monthly, weekly, or daily data usage right from an easy-to-reach location. The best part of this widget is that it shows you your data use in real time, unlike the carrier's applications. It includes settings to customizing the maximum amounts of data that you want to use and the scale of your billing period. You can also see your cellular signal strength from the widget. The real-time readings will show you your upload and download usages.
3. Bulletin - .99¢
Bulletin was a jailbreak tweak released so that you could have a cheaper alternative to getting the Notification Center on your lock screen over IntelliScreenX (which has a ton more features and costs much more). Bulletin was designed by iOS developer Ma Jun and comes with the option to have manual banner dismissal for all iOS 5 notification banners so that they don't automatically hide themselves after they appear for a couple of seconds without being tapped on. Since Notification Center is a beautiful part of iOS 5, it's a great addition to the dreary and boring lock screen.
4. LockSliderz - $1.49
LockSliderz is a jailbreak tweak that was designed to give you more shortcuts on your lock screen by iOS developer Zmaster. It has settings that let you adjust the size and applications that each knob has and it also give the the option to have up to two separate sliders to hold all of the knobs. Once slid, the customized knobs will open the applications that you have them set to. LockSliderz works with AndroidLockXT and with any pass code that you might have.
5. NCColors - FREE
NCColors is a jailbreak tweak that was designed by iOS developer Pathkiller29 to let you set a hue to your Notification Center in just the right color that suits you. The hue colors are set by RGB (red green blue) sliders that eliminate limited color lists. It also comes bundled with Ryan Petrich's FastBlurredNotificationCenter tweak which makes Notification Center blurred and transparent so that you can see what is behind it. The blur is optional and configured via the settings.
6. SiriMemes - FREE
SiriMemes is a free Siri extension by iOS developer xxtesaxx that was built off of the AssistantExtensions plugin framework. It is an entrainment plugin that allows you to have Siri show you a meme by telling her something that relates to the meme. For example - saying, "problem" or "trollface" will make Siri display the 'trollface' meme. There are quite a few memes that SiriMemes supports, all of which can be read about in the Cydia description. This tweak doesn't have any important functionality, but it's enough to make many people laugh. It is compatible with the Spire Siri port (we have a full list of legitimate servers here) or you can install it on an iPhone 4S and it will work with that Siri as well.
Stay tuned for next week's best tweaks - only on Modmyi!

You know what would be an amazing tweak? A tweak that would make text messages on the i phone compatible with Sync. From i understand it is all done through bluetooth communications. If a tweak like that was possible, i would pay 10 bucks easily. You writers should get one of the developers to give it a shot.

I was not extremely happy with any of the releases this week so I found myself browsing old material. Not saying anything bad about any of the apps or developers, just saying most were not my cup of tea, or the functions the apps perform we're already taken care of by another app. Thank you none the less.

I think there needs to be something like quick reply and quick compose (similar to bitesms) but for emails!

How about a tweak that would allow you to select what Calendars are displayed on the NC Calendar widget. I really don't need to have the Birthday calendar listed there. I have turned it off in Calendars, but it refuses to go away in the widget. I would pay for that.

We have 2 iPhones & 2 iPod touches at my house, so airBlue is a blessing!

I am usually ultra critical about news posts on this sight, but the best tweaks of the week really has me impressed. Nothing listed here that I am interested in (it was boung to happen), but I still find it informative. I have picked up at least 2-3 tweaks that I didn't know about befor reading here.

FINALLY bluetooth capability. Airblue Sharing App lets you print DIRECTLY from an iPhone to the polaroid POGO printer & FAST. Just did a jailbreak of my iPhone 4S OS 5.0.1. Then purchased the Airblue App. Ran it and paired it to the pogo (pairing code 6000). Took a picture - selected it via bluetooth - PRINT... :-) bing-bang-bong !

Here is a couple of tweaks id live to see:
Set the volume level on the stock alarm clock independently from the ringer, also have fade in option...
Choose the resolution size of the pictures on the stock camera app, ie: take widescreen pics 16X9 or Standard 4X3.

How about a tweak that fixes the ***** sound quality of ringtones in iOS 5. Something that would allow us to set SMS sounds as the ringtone. In case some of you haven't noticed, the audio quality of ringtones when listening to them as ringtones, is quite awful. Go and listen to the same stock sounds/ringtones but when selecting your SMS tone and it sounds 10x better.
