Extensify: Tweaks for Non-Jailbroken IOS Devices

One of the best things about having a jailbroken iOS device is the ability to add tweaks and add-ons to the operating system. Adding new features, improving the overall user experience and even modifying iOS altogether can be done rather easily. However, the latest iOS 8.4.1 officially closed the bug that was used to enable jailbreaking. IOS 9, on the other hand, will make jailbreaking your iPhone that much more difficult. So how can we continue to add tweaks in the future? Extensify is here with an answer.


IMods: The Next Big Cydia Alternative?

We’ve seen a lot of Cydia alternatives over the years. They come and go for various reasons, but none were captivating enough to actually replace Cydia. IMods, on the other hand, may be different. Unlike Extensify, which we featured earlier, iMods is a full-on Cydia replacement that offers a lot of interesting things.


ProximityActivator: Use Proximity Gestures as Activator

There is already a long list of Activator tweaks and add-ons that you can add to your jailbroken iOS devices. These tweaks add a lot of new functionalities that make using the iOS device a lot more pleasant and convenient. This next tweak, however, took Activator tweaks to a whole new level.

Instead of relying on buttons or the touchscreen of your iPhone, you can now access apps, invoke settings and perform other tasks by simply waving your hand in front of the proximity sensor. ProximityActivator, the name of this tweak, enables you to make use of the proximity sensor to your advantage. Read More...

It doesn’t work, since you can’t simply do away with all the unwanted notifications. Until now.IllLookLater-2
