Ever since it was first introduced, the Apple multitasking system had a couple of flaws which made it somewhat unlikable by people from all around the world. While it is neat and sleek, there are definitely a couple of improvements that Apple could’ve made. However, until that happens, a great Cydia tweak known by the name of AppHeads will take multitasking to the next level.

The iOS 8 jailbreak tweak will take over the role of the basic multitasking found on your iPhone and get in a couple of great features.

Get a sleeker lock screen with SleekCode

While there are a couple of great Cydia tweaks which offer a variety of customizing options for the lock screen, but also widgets, I personally feel like there isn’t an app which stands out from all the points of view. However, an interesting Cydia tweak that actually has a lot of potential is known by the name of SleekCode.

This great Cydia tweak which can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo allows users to change the look of the traditional iPhone passcode screen.

WiFried jailbreak tweak fixes iOS 8’s WiFi issue

One of the main issues of iOS 8.1 is the WiFi problem which many users have been reporting. Although iOS 8.1.1 fixes this issue, it is not jailbreakable at the moment and the latest firmware that can be jailbroken is iOS 8.1. WiFried is a new Cydia tweak that promises to fix the WiFi performance issue on iOS 8 and 8.1

WiFried enables users to turn on or off AWDL/AirDrop support which is one of the main culprit of the WiFi problem. According to the developer, Apple’s choice of switching to Bonjour over AWDL is the likely cause for the WiFi performance issue. Read More...

Get your pedometer running on your iPhone’s lockscreen with Stepper 2

If you’ve ever used an Android phone that features a pedometer, then chances are that you already know that most of these devices can easily display how many steps you’ve walked on the lock screen.
