Fix the current Do not Disturb issues with DisturbMeLater

Do Not Disturb is definitely an awesome feature that it offered by iOS 8, but there are times when it can actually get quite complicated because of a number of different reasons. One of them refers to the simple idea that people from all around the world may simply forget to disable it, so this causes many to miss phone calls, texts etc. Well, in order to help fix the dangerous tendency of not turning it off that some people may have, DisturbMeLater is here to get the job done.


Set your alarms faster with Clone Alarm

While I may consider myself an early bird, the truth is that I only have the title thanks to a smart strategy that I’ve been using for a couple of years. Whenever I go to sleep, I make sure to set up a couple of alarms, a couple of minutes apart in order to ensure that I don’t fall back to sleep and I’m late on any project that I may be working on. Well, thanks to a great Cydia tweak known by the name of Clone Alarm, things can actually get a lot better in a very short period of time.  Read More...

Take screenshots that don’t show the Status Bar via NoBarScreen

When you take a screenshot on your Apple device, you will always see the status bar on it as well. Nobody really wants to see how much battery you have left or how good your signal is. Luckily, thanks to NoBarScreen, a new jailbreak tweak, you can now take a picture without the status bar. As this has annoyed people from all around the world, the great Cydia tweak will easily allow users from all around the world to enjoy better looking screenshots, without having to worry about the status bar blocking things up.


Better Lock screen Touch ID display thanks to the LockGlyph Upate

I’m personally a great fan of all lock screen tweaks available over on the iOS 8 jailbreak, which was also one of the main reasons why I decided to try out LockGlyph, which advertised itself as a great Cydia tweak, capable of improving the way that Touch ID looks. Howevr, LockGlyph was not very well-received when it was first released. The goal of the app is to animate and provide sound to the Apple Pay authentication. At first it was clunky and show and couldn’t be customised enough. Fortunately, it has now been updated and is hence considerably better. Read More...

Get access to advanced settings with AdvancedSettings8

Today we’ll take a look at a great Cydia tweak, known by the name of AdvancedSettings8 that was developed for more advanced users and that manages to unlock quite a number of iPhone settings that are generally well hidden in order to remove any confusion that the terms may give users.

While I have been using iOS devices for a couple of years and I consider myself somewhat of an advanced user, there were still quite a large number of settings unlocked by the Cydia app which looked peculiar.


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. With this in mind, it offers a variety of different themes including passcode rings, blur, alpha and a couple of more features that allow users to hide the emergency dial button, but also the famous ‘Slide to Unlock’ quite that iDevices are well known for.

Kill Your Apps with Slide2Kill8 Pro

Another useful jailbreak tweak has come along in the form of Slide2Kill8 Pro, enabling users to kill apps in various ways. The switcher actions will let you kill the apps using the switcher cards, and the icon actions are used for killing apps with the app icons.

A well-loved feature is that you can customise the actions, so you can kill all the apps, single apps, show a menu or simply do nothing. You can invoke both Control Centre and Notification Centre by using the quick menu, which enables you to shut down all the apps.  Read More...

Take and make calls while in an app with CallBar

A very important feature that iOS 8 currently lacks refers to the ability of users to make and take calls even if they are currently in another application on their device. Regardless of the fact that many complaints have been made towards Apple in the hope that such a feature will be implemented, it seems like Apple didn’t pick it up yet. However, CallBar is one of the best Cydia apps that offers users this exact feature.

CallBar was actually released during the time that most iPhones were running on iOS 7, which made it a great app for its time. Read More...

iFile has an exciting update for iOS 8 and iPhone 6 users

Hundreds have tried to create a great Cydia app that can be used to look through a device and make modifications, but many have failed. However, one of the best ‘finder-like’ apps which also works on the iOS 8 jailbreak is known by the name of iFile.

iFile, the reputable management app for iPhones, has received several recent updates in order to make it work better for users. The Finder-like tool has also been updated for iOS 8 and additional iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support is now available. iFile is a great Cydia app which is useful since it enables you to manage your files and to easily look throughout parts of your device that Apple doesn’t normally give users access to.

Quick Question: Should I jailbreak iOS 8 now?

The iOS 8 jailbreak is here!

It’s finally here! After a couple of speculations in the past together with different stories regarding which developer will release the iOS 8 jailbreak for iOS 8- iOS 8.1, it seems like Pangu was finally able to get things done well.

Just a few hours ago, the team announced that the jailbreak also works on all of the devices that support iOS 8, so that includes the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 which is simply great news. However, there’s still another side to this story. While Pangu may have managed to release the jailbreak itself, it is more for developers rather than consumers, as there would be no actual way for consumers to enjoy the jailbreak in the case that they had no apps to install.

Get faster calling with CallShortcut

A very interesting feature that both Android phones, but even Nokia phones running their own software have and had had in the past is related to the idea of adding call favourites on the lock screen or home screen of your device. CallShortcut represents a great Cydia app that will allow you to do just that on iOS 7 and most probably on the iOS 8 jailbreak as well once it is released.

Once a contact or more are added to your home screen, you can easily go ahead and call them whenever you’d like, as the Cydia tweak doesn’t only play a visual role, but also the role of an utility meant to make calling people you speak to often a much easier, but also faster experience for people from all around the world.

Secure your iPhone with Asphaleia

To be honest, I’ve always loved cydia apps that have something to do with security. With the iOS 8 jailbreak right around the corner, more and more great Cydia apps appear on a daily basis. Asphaleia, regardless of its weird name is one of them!

With the iPhone 5S, Apple also introduced Touch ID, a smart fingerprint sensor that can be used in order to unlock your device or initiate certain functions, but Apple never really tried its best in order to incorporate it into other apps and into the OS, thus making things more interesting.

One of the main purposes behind Jailbreaking is the fact that users get more accessibility to some of the device’s functions which in turn work together towards making the overall experience of a certain user considerably better.

Today, we’ll be covering a cydia app known by the name of NCMemo which serves a very important purpose as well.
