    Default How to Fine-tune Location Services on Your iOS 8 Device on a Per-application Basis


    Maybe you need more control over the location services on your iPhone, or maybe you're just looking for a way to keep a longer battery charge. If so, then you need to try a new free jailbreak tweak called Locus by iOS developer dantesieg.

    With Locus installed, you have the ability to manage what applications are allowed to use your location and when. For lack of a better explanation, it gives you a more in-depth control pad for choosing how your location is used by applications, or by anything else for that matter.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak's options to your liking:



    From here, you can:

    • Enable or disable the tweak on demand
    • Select the applications on your device that are allowed to tap into your location
    • Enable or disable location services when Notification Center is open
    • Enable or disable location services when your device is locked (Lock Screen)


    This more fune-tuned control not only gives you more control than Apple gives you, but also gives you the ability to really lock down your personal information to what you really want to harness it.

    Locus is available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository if you're ready to start playing with it and setting it up. The tweak requires iOS 8 to be installed.

    Name: Locus
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.2

    Developer: danteseig
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    How is this anymore value than native iOS 8?? Aside from the NC which is useless.
