If it seems like you can never find a mirror when you need one, Instant Mirror solves that predicament by turning your iPhone 4 into, well, an instant mirror. This is a jailbreak tweak that is exclusive to the iPhone 4 and the new iPod Touch 4G, due to the fact that it relies on the hardware’s front facing camera.

Obviously, if you have one of these devices, you already have a “mirror”, just open up the camera, enable front facing mode, and there you go. The problem with that method, is that it’s not exactly instant, while Instant Mirror is a bit more expeditious in its actions…

Instant Mirror can be downloaded from Cydia for $2.99; admittedly that’s a hefty sum to pay for a tweak that — albeit being a bit easier — pretty much duplicates what’s already there to begin with.

But, if you find yourself in dire need of a mirror on many occasions, then Instant Mirror is a worthwhile investment. Plus, there are a few interesting settings that come along with it in the Settings.app; just don’t come in expecting a modern day “mirrorcle…”

How does it look to you?

  • Jason masters

    Stupid tweak period.

  • Chris

    I thought the “mirror” on the back of the phone did this.

  • SillyBear

    I understand developing apps for the Apple AppStore or Cydia is time consuming, but seriously $2.99 for this garbage?

    Times like these I’m glad pirated repos exist.

    If I need a mirror, I can use the front camera and wait 3-5 sec for it, instead of paying $3.00. Some developers are really stupid and/or greedy.

  • Pissed_Off_Nerd

    These JB apps are getting outta control in price! No different than Apple app store!

  • OK people, do we really need this feature on our phones?

  • greytone

    If I had an iPhone4 I’d probably get it. Pointless but neat. That sums up a lot of my favorite tweaks.

  • Chazz

    LOL i love it. when anyone checks out my iphone and turns it on they’re surprised as heck to see themselves in video when they hit the home button 🙂

    Buy a mirror screen protector on eBay for the same price if not cheaper. And not only will you get a mirror. But a screen protector as well. I bought a couple for my phone.

  • Bradibiza

    Well that seals it, no longer am I confused at some of cydias high prices. They have figured that if someone’s going to pay it charge it. We are at fault here the general public, we are at best morons. And any one paying $3 for this needs sterilising. Be less insanelyi (hint) and try before you buy.
