Weekly Tweak Recap Mar. 11 - Mar. 17
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. YourTube for iOS 6 – $4.99
YourTube for iOS 6 is the brand-new iOS 6-compatible version of YourTube that adds many power features to Google’s YouTube application for YouTube power-users. Some features include video downloading, ad-blocking, download acceleration, importing with Gremlin, metadata editing, streaming quality selection, download quality selection, and many other great features. You will find YourTube for iOS 6 in Cydia for $4.99, but if you already own YourTube or YourTube HD, it is a free upgrade!
2. RaiseToCall – $1.99
RaiseToCall is a simple, but stunning new jailbreak tweak that can initiate phone calls for you when you hold your phone up to your face while messaging someone. With the tweak installed, the person you’re messaging is the person you will call when you hold the iPhone up to your face. It works for both SMS and iMessage, and makes for a great shortcut to calling the person you’re messaging.
3. Mail Enhancer Pro iOS 6 – $4.99
Mail Enhancer Pro iOS 6 is the iOS 6-compatible version of Mail Enhancer Pro that adds tons of useful new features to the stock iOS Mail application for Mail power-users. Some of the important features include highlighting, HTML signatures, custom vibrations, incoming e-mail rules, announcing e-mails with address book names, quick actions, inbox filtering, quick selecting, and many other interesting features. If you use e-mail a lot on your iOS device, Mail Enhancer Pro is a classic that you just need to have!
4. Harlem Shake – FREE
Harlem Shake is a simple, humorous jailbreak tweak made available for free to make your iOS device do the Harlem Shake. When you use the tweak, you will hear music, along with all of the iOS device’s home screen or lock screen elements moving around.
5. Compose – FREE
Compose adds two new buttons to Notification Center for composing text messages or e-mails. The buttons were designed to look like the iOS 6 share widget, which allows users to quickly post to Facebook or send a Tweet to Twitter. With the stock feel and added functionality, compose is a nice add-on for Notification Center if you send a lot of text messages/iMessages or e-mails.
6. AnyReminder – $1.99
AnyReminder is a great new tweak for setting reminders about notifications. This tweak is great for when you receive a notification in the middle of something important, and want to be reminded about it later so you don’t forget all about it.
7. Cyueue – $2.49
Cyueue is Saurik’s latest creation, giving users the power to add three new buttons to song cells in the Music application. The buttons allow users to play the song immediately, play the song after the current song finishes (add it to a queue), or place the song at the end of the queue to be played last. This tweak is great for parties where you want the music transition to remain as smooth as possible without interrupting what you’re currently playing.
8. TransparentCameraBar – FREE
TransparentCameraBar allows the user to gain more visibility in the Camera application when snapping photographs by giving the user the ability to set the transparency level of the bar at the bottom of the Camera application. Apple does something similar for when you shoot videos, so it’s a shame they didn’t do this for photographs too.
9. Private Space – FREE
Private Space is a useful tweak for those that are less social because it allows iOS 6 users to disable sharing features at will so that share menus are less cluttered with buttons that the user will never take advantage of. Features can be easily enabled and disabled from the tweak’s settings.
10. Crescent – FREE
Crescent is an add-on for Siri that allows the user to toggle Do Not Disturb mode via the sometimes-handy virtual assistant.
11. Tap to Widgets – $1.99
Tap to Widgets is a Notification Center add-on that brings more share widgets to Notification Center. The additional widgets include Notes, Reminders, and Calendar. Users can pick between individual widgets, or the all-in-one widget, which puts everything into one row. Each widget comes with its own individually designed share sheet that resembles the application it was designed for. Those looking to extend the usefulness of Notification Center should check out Tap to Widgets!
12. Bounds Color – FREE
Bounds Color is a jailbreak tweak that lets you adjust the color of bounds in iOS, such as those surrounding preference cells in the Settings application, or those surrounding e-mail cells in the Mail application. The tweak comes with many colors to pick from, and it’s a nice way to add some customization to your device.
13. Vexil – 99¢
Vexil gives the user a chance to add some customization to their lock screens. It comes with options for coloring the clock, top and bottom lock screen bars, and slider. It also gives the user choices for animations and some additional features. It’s a tweak that will appeal to those that like customization.
14. Sticky Icky – FREE
Sticky Icky makes notification banners stickier, forcing users to manually dismiss them rather than allowing iOS to automatically dismiss them after a few seconds. The tweak adds a close button to the banner that is used to close the banner notification.
15. DefaultSBPage – 99¢
DefaultSBPage allows the user to pick a home screen page that the device will always unlock to. It’s useful for those that use home screen widgets, as the tweak can be used to either avoid landing on these pages when you unlock, or make them appear first when you unlock rather than displaying application icons. In the end, it comes down to personal preference.
16. InstantCamera – 99¢
InstantCamera adds a new option to Activator that will display the Camera application when you invoke the Activator action you choose so you can quickly snap a picture. After you’re done taking photographs, you can press the home button once to return to the application you were just in prior to taking pictures. I’s useful for those that need to take pictures on a fly a lot.
17. Grabber Enhancer – FREE
Grabber Enhancer allows the user to customize the action of the Camera Grabber on the lock screen. Rather than simply dragging up on the slider to reveal the camera, users can choose to slide up on the Camera Grabber to unlock the device or tap on the Camera Grabber to unlock the device.
18. FBMessengerUnseen – FREE
FBMessengerUnseen allows you to keep the people messaging you from seeing that you’ve read their messages. It works only with the Facebook Messenger application for iOS, however it’s an effective way to keep those annoying people from feeling hurt when they know you’ve read their messages and haven’t replied.
19. Brightivator – FREE
Brightivator is a simple tweak that lets you assign two Activator actions to increasing and decreasing brightness. When you invoke either of the Activator actions, a brightness HUD (heads-up display) will show up and show you the brightness level in real time. The tweak makes setting brightness a lot easier, as you no longer have to search through your Settings application for the slider.
20. Settings Rotator – FREE
Settings Rotator is a simple tweak that enables landscape orientation in the Settings application on the iPhone and iPod touch just like the iPad. Hey, why not?

I like Settings Rotator. Not sure why it isn't like that out of the box.

I don't know why you'd have to add the repo -- the MMi repo is one of the stock/default repos.
