Airplane Enhancer+, The Ultimate Battery Saver Cydia Tweak

Airplane Mode represents a popular feature that has been embedded into both Android and iOS devices for a while now.

Hacker Teases iOS 9.2 Jailbreak (Again)

The last time a public jailbreak tool was released, it was for iOS 9.0-9.0.2. Since the Pangu 9 Jailbreak for iOS 9 was introduced, we haven’t seen a new tool being made available. The demand for iOS 9.2 and 9.3 jailbreak is as high as ever, and we might not be too far from seeing a public release after all.

Qwertyoruiop recently demonstrated a jailbreak that works well with iOS 9.2. On top of that, the same tool is also seen working on iOS 9.2.1 and 9.3 beta. This is good news for a lot of people who have been waiting for a new jailbreak release for so long. Read More...

Classic iOS Shutter Annimation with ClassicShutterAnnimation

When Apple updated its Camera app following the release of iOS 7, I was a bit disappointed by the lack of shutter animation. Yes, the camera does feel faster and snappier, but sometimes that shutter animation makes the whole experience, well, better. I guess I’m not the only one who feels this way, because now there’s a jailbreak tweak to bring that classic animation back.

ClassicShutterAnimation to the Rescue

If you’re feeling a little bit nostalgic, this jailbreak tweak is definitely for you. Available from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, ClassicShutterAnimation does what it promises to do: bring back the shutter animation and that pre-iOS 7 camera experience. Read More...

Although this means it is possible to jailbreak iOS 9.2.1 – and that a release may be coming soon enough – the said hacker will not be the source of the jailbreak tool we all have been waiting for.

App Store Redirects Disrupting Cydia User Experience

Cydia is a wonderful platform where developers and iOS users can exchange new tweaks – or even sell them – and do wonders with iOS. However, Cydia is not without its own faults. The repositories that host iOS and jailbreak tweaks are now flooded with app store redirects. Recently, it has been more and more annoying.

App store redirects aren’t really annoying if they happen once every now and then (or at least once every time we want to install a new tweak or jailbreak app.). The problem is, the current state of Cydia forces users to deal with five – sometimes more – app store redirect popups. Read More...

Dynamics: Live Wallpapers for iPhone Users

Apple isn’t really going to offer live wallpapers to iOS users anytime soon. The company has had so many chances to do so over the years, but it is clear that live wallpapers – or dynamic wallpapers – are not in Apple designers’ minds at the moment; the same goes for additional themes. If you want to enjoy dynamic wallpapers, however, and your iPhone is jailbroken, you can simply use Dynamics.

Currently at its teaser stage, Dynamics is a jailbreak app that will be made available in Cydia once the Dynamics Teaser hits 500 downloads. You can search for the former using the keyword “Dynamic Teaser” and have it installed in just a few taps. Read More...

FileBrowser, a great alternative to iFile

After many years, I still remember my first jailbreak experience with the iPod Touch 2G. The two first Cydia apps that I installed were Winterboard along with iFile which would allow me to change up a couple of settings on my device. Well, the old and infamous iFile has a bit of more competition right now, after the release of FileBrowser, a brand new Cydia app which can be found on the BigBoss repo, which is free of charge and offers some awesome features.

With this being said, the Cydia app allows iDevice users to easily go ahead and browse throughout the smallest files in their device, on the entire file system and also do a couple of cool things such as creating files, deleting folders, files while also allowing users to rename, copy, paste and edit.

Get many great Snapchat features with GhostPrefs

Chances are that you’ve already heard about, or even used Snapchat before. Today, we’ll take a look at an interesting Cydia app known by the name of GhostPrefs. Due to the fact that its name doesn’t really manage to give away a lot about the app itself, we’ll have to go into an in-depth review.

However, if you’re still not aware about Snapchat, then it represents a social messaging app that allows users to share photos of themselves with their friends. What makes it different when compared to other photo sharing platforms is the fact that pictures shared via this platform are actually self-destructive, which means that they’ll be automatically deleted after a certain timeframe selected by the sender expires.
