Weekly Tweak Recap Mar. 25 - Mar. 31
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. LockHTML2 – 99¢
LockHTML2 is a new jailbreak tweak that supersedes LockHTML as an HTML lock screen widget platform for iOS. The tweak comes with one HTML widget already; however, other developers can contribute and users can download and use them. In addition to HTML widgets, the tweak also comes with some useful lock screen customization options, which can be used to make the widget experience even better.
2. Addial – FREE
Addial is a nice free notification center add-on, styled to look like the iOS 6 share widget that can be used to add contacts and/or initiate phone calls. The widget is easily enabled in the Notifications preferences pane from the Settings application.
3. Auto App Updater – $2.99
Auto App Updater is a new jailbreak tweak that can be used to automatically update your outdated App Store applications in the background. The tweak lets you set your own timed increment to check for updates so that it doesn’t drain your battery. In addition, users can pick and choose the applications that get updated, so they aren’t forced to update a perfectly working application to a potentially broken version of the application. The tweak includes information about the changes of all the applications that are automatically updated, so the user won’t miss a beat. This tweak is highly recommended for those that sometimes forget to keep their App Store apps up to date!
4. N Stats for NotificationCenter – FREE
N Stats for NotificationCenter is a nicely-made notification center widget that can show the user information about their device, including the amount of free RAM, amount of free storage, and the active download and upload speed of the network that they’re connected to. The widget is minimalist, while still managing to give the user information that they might like to know about.
5. WeatherIcon 6 – FREE
WeatherIcon 6 is the iOS 6-compatible version of the popular WeatherIcon that can be used to make the Weather application icon (or another application icon) show the actual weather information based on your location. This is much more useful than how Apple’s Weather application icon always shows sunny and 73º.
6. Badge Customizer – FREE
Badge Customizer is a tweak that allows the user to adjust the application icon badges on the home screen. The tweak allows the user to change their color, adjust the size, and even choose the positioning of the badges on the application icons.
7. LiveWire – FREE
LiveWire is a simple tweak that gives you a new unlocking animation for the lock screen. The animation resembles a curtain being opened, and may be more appealing to some than the stock unlocking animation.
8. NCMusicGestures – FREE
NCMusicGestures is a simple notification center add-on that gives the user a better way to control music. The add-on is basically a music control widget that includes gesture controls for the Music application and information about the currently-playing song.
9. ToDoNotes 2 – FREE
ToDoNotes 2 is an iOS 6-compatible version of ToDoNotes that allows the user to store notes that are created in the Notes application on the SpotLight page of the home screen. Notes are added to this space manually via the share button at the bottom of the Notes application. This tweak is great for those that don't really use SpotLight; however, the tweak doesn't disable SpotLight, so users will still get the best of both worlds.
10. AlarmDisplay Pro – $1.50
AlarmDisplay Pro is a tweak for those that use their alarms a lot on iOS. The tweak gives the user options for showing different kinds of alarm information as application icon badges on the Clock application, and also lets the user use Activator to set an alarm form anywhere.
11. RecordMyScreen – FREE
RecordMyScreen is a free and open source alternative to Display Recorder that was created by a large team of iOS developers. The recorder comes complete with different recording options, Camera Roll importing features, and additional features that screen recorder users will need.
12. Earth LivePaper – $1.99
Earth LivePaper is yet another option for the popular LivePapers jailbreak tweak. Earth LivePaper is different from the rest of the LivePapers because it displays Earth on the display and the earth will rotate with the user’s finger when they swipe on the display. The LivePaper comes with a ton of options the user can configure as well.
13. iBatteryInfo – FREE
iBatteryInfo is a simple tweak that shows the user information about their iOS device’s battery whenever the device is plugged in or unplugged.
14. MyAssistive – FREE
MyAssistive is an interesting new tweak that gives the user the ability to give the Assitive Touch button functionality that it never had before. The tweak comes with multiple functions that the user can assign to it, but the tweak also comes with some additional options, such as removing the auto-snapping that happens when you move the button around, and changing the colors of the buttons from the Assitive Touch menu. The tweak is definitely worth taking a look at if you like shortcuts or hardware button alternatives.
15. LLBPano – FREE
LLBPano is a simple jailbreak tweak that enables Low Light Boost mode when shooting photographs in panorama mode on the iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5G.
16. Front HDR – FREE
Front HDR is a simple jailbreak tweak that enables HDR mode for users shooting photographs with their front-facing camera.
17. PowerSwipe – FREE
PowerSwipe gives the user the ability to assign new functions to the lock screen’s camera grabber. The features include the ability to shut down, reboot, and even respring whenever the camera grabber is swiped upwards on the lock screen.
18. FaceSlideR 2 – $2.99
FaceSlideR 2 is the sequel to FaceSlideR, which allows the user to change the lock screen slider icon to almost anything they want. The tweak lets the user pick an image from their Camera Roll, take a picture to use, or even search the Web for pictures to use. The tweak even comes with built-in editing features so that the user can make the image look the way they want it to look before they apply it.
19. NoLaunchAlert – FREE
NoLaunchAlert is a simple tweak that disables the launch alerts in applications that support them, such as when the Messages application bugs you about being in Airplane Mode whenever you have the feature enabled. You can configure the applications that the tweak disables these messages for.

I appreciate you doing these recaps, Mr. Bouchard. I check this forum multiple times a day but always seem to miss some of the new tweaks so these recaps are most helpful.
