    Default Best Tweaks of the Week 7/30 - 8/5


    Here are the best jailbreak creations for the week of July 30th until today, August 5th as per the opinion of our staff. This is a weekly recap.

    1. Nitrous - 99

    Nitrous is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Joe Jordan. Nitrous brings the power of the Nitro JavaScript engine to third party applications like Facebook and Google Chrome so that they can perform at quicker speeds like Mobile Safari. The change is subtle, however it is noticeable. The extra performance can help you to gloat a little more when your speeds outdo your friends.



    2. Monocle - FREE

    Monocle is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ryan Petrich that gives the user the ability to invoke full-screen application mode from within any application with an Activator action. It includes features for hiding and showing certain application elements and these features allow you to manage how much of the screen is dedicated to the application rather than the interface of the application such as navigation panes and tab panes.



    3. NetworkKnowledge - 99

    NetworkKnowledge is a new and simple jailbreak tweak by iOS developer rms that allows the user to view and manage a history of every Wi-Fi network the iOS device has ever connected to. The list comes with the ability to delete any of the Wi-Fi network names you want to, which can be useful for removing the history of networks you’ve used and protect your privacy. The best part about the tweak is that it’s integrated right into the Wi-Fi preferences pane.



    4. NCFullStatusBar - FREE

    NCFullStatusBar is a new free jailbreak tweak that allows all status bar information to be displayed in the Notification Center on the iPad. When in full-screen applications such as ZombieSmash, all Status Bar information is hidden except for the time, which is in the middle of Notification Center when you pull it down. NCFullStatusBar allows the user to see things like the Wi-Fi strength and battery percentage from the Notification Center drop-down interface without needing to close the full-screen application to see the status bar.


    Stay tuned for next week's best tweaks - only on Modmyi!

    Yea, I got a free copy of Nitrous (I got a license from the dev) and I've noticed no changes with anything.
    it's supposed to speed up apps but it looks like all my apps are in the list so which ones work with Nitrous and which ones dont?

    Even if it is $0.99 is it really worth it to do nothing?

    I purchased the Nitrous, but it doesn't work. It resprings my device every time I open it. I reinstalled it couple of times, removed it, installed it back, but nothing... Am I missing something?

    Nitrous is working great for me. Facebook app responds quicker and when I click to see comments they actually load. Pinterest app actually repopulates pictures as opposed to just reloading the same one. Twitter (tweetbot) is snappier and loads images/websites more quickly. I've seen a different in speed on several other apps too like Olympics Live Extra, Ufc tv, etc.

    I am very very surprised that BATTSAVER has not been included, or in fact reviewed considering the problems lots of people have with there battery on the iPhone 4S

    Any reason ?

    Probably because this article was written before it was released or known about. Look for it in next weeks article.

    No, it was posted yesterday at 9pm (my time). Check the time and date of the first post. Which means it was written sometime yesterday as well. First I heard of the battery tweak you are talking about was this morning on twitter from pod2G.

    Hey, this was in the Nitrous thread last week, but he fixed the issue with updates. You have to subscribe to his beta repo. Add cydia.joedj.net to your cydia sources and you'll see the update come up automatically in cydia. The new versions work.
