    Default 'StatusHUD' Integrates the Volume HUD Into the Status Bar


    When you’re in the middle of something, the last thing you want to do is wait for the HUD (heads-up display) to disappear after you adjust your volume. Even if it’s just for a few seconds, the HUD could be improved a whole lot if put somewhere less obtrusive.

    A new jailbreak tweak called StatusHUD by iOS developer Alan Yip puts the volume HUD in the Status Bar instead of in its own pop-up that you have to patiently wait for before it disappears, as shown above. The volume appears as you adjust it, then turns back into the time when the user gets a chance to see the volume level. Not only is the tweak more convenient, but it even looks better.

    Even better is that in full-screen applications, the Status Bar will appear then quickly disappear as you adjust the volume, so if you're gaming, you won't have a large volume HUD in the middle of your screen and getting in the way of your controls:



    StatusHUD adds a preferences pane to the Settings application so you can choose between either the usual square volume indicator bars or an iOS 7 signal strength-inspired circular volume indicator bars:



    StatusHUD supports both the regular volume and the ringer volume. If you would like to give the tweak a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just 99; a small price to pay for such a nice tweak that iOS is lacking in its stock form. The tweak is compatible with any iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.

    Name: StatusHUD
    Price: 99
    Version: 1.0.0
    Requirements: iOS 6.0+
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Alan Yip

    Got this today and it works okay - I love the minimalistic approach and not having to wait for the HUD to disappear.
    A couple of issues...

    1) Doesn't integrate well with Volume Amplifier tweak.
    Once it hits 100%, it doesn't show the increased levels of Volume Amplifier tweak beyond 100%.

    2) It doesn't show up on the home screen or lock screen.
    It works in apps, but on the home screen, you get no indicator. Perhaps there is a conflict with another tweak?

    It works fine on homescreen for me so you can assume it is a conflicting tweak

    I do love the small subtle tweaks like this, hopefully it gets updated with color options.

    setup an Activator gesture to load biteSMS quick compose instead of the default volume up + tap

    Finally worked out which tweak was conflicting with it - TaskMaster. This tweak uses the empty space in the search page and fills it with system controls and system information and quick post buttons.
    TaskMaster will not show the volume HUD and StatusHUD on the home screen.
