Sometimes you just don’t have time to look at the time. Or maybe you’re in a dark room, and don’t want the iPhone’s light to blind you as if you were staring directly into the sun. In either of these scenarios, using TimeSpeak would be appropriate.

TimeSpeak is a jailbreak tweak that will speak the current time and date out loud when invoked via an Activator action. The tweak contains numerous options for speaking certain parts of time like day, month, hours, minutes, seconds, etc. Take a look inside for a full video demo…

I could certainly see myself using TimeSpeak on a daily basis, especially during the night, or early in the morning when I can barely pry my eyes open. It’s not something that’s going to replace a watch, or the visible clock on the iPhone, but it can be very useful in the appropriate situations.

TimeSpeak is a free jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and I can definitely recommend it. What about you? Would you use it?

  • cant hear it

  • cant hear it, not loud enough

  • Ken Oliver

    Im not sure I see the point of this tweak!!!!

    if you are using your phone you just need to look at the status bar to see the time

    And if your phone is locked you just need to press the home button to see the time

    Can’t think of a instance when I would need my phone to speak the time for me ??

    • If ur phone is in ur pocket and have your earphones on then you can use this tweak by setting an activator action with earphone buttons.

        Or just look at your wristwatch 🙂

      • Don’t have a wristwatch. I use my iPhone. This Tweak is brilliant for exact those moments that Darshan Patel posted about

  • a shake to speak will be great…I agree with Ken Oliver!

  • Infone

    I use “New Controls” from the AppStore. Same thing; no jailbreak required.

  • Useless unless you’re blind

  • Gonzalo Villar

    yeah, not loud enough

  • I think it’s a little bit useless … but also it’s pretty cool !
