Thread: 'VolHUD' Shrinks the Volume HUD's Footprint for a Less-obtrusive Volume Indicator

    Default 'VolHUD' Shrinks the Volume HUD's Footprint for a Less-obtrusive Volume Indicator


    The iOS 7 volume HUD (heads-up display) is large and clunky. It shows up right smack in the middle of your display, overlaying any videos you might be watching, and making it difficult to read your display if you're in the middle of something and have to adjust your volume level.

    To fix this, you can use a new free jailbreak tweak called VolHUD by iOS developer Hayden Hunter. As shown above, VolHUD will make it so that instead of the large centered volume HUD that Apple gives you, which seems to get in the way of everything all the time, you will get a minimal volume HUD that is positioned slightly at the bottom of the display so that it's not smack in the middle.

    The newer volume HUD makes it so that you can read easier while the HUD is displaying, and watch videos easier while the HUD is displaying.

    It's worth noting that VolHUD shows you the volume step numerically instead of with indicator dots, and that the HUD still disappears after a few seconds as the stock volume HUD does. While it is simpler, it's also not as pretty, so this is one thing to keep in mind if you like pretty things.

    If you wan to give VolHUD a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7 is required for the installation and there are no options to configure for the tweak.
