Which ones have you or will you try out?

  • Andrew

    The list dwindled down to eight, and it’s now soared back up to twenty-four. Strange. Especially since there’s a new version of iOS coming out soon, and the Watch is arriving, you’d think developers would hold off release in order to not get lost in the limelight.

  • Widget Magic is a paid tweak, not free.

  • James G

    iDB should have their own repo.

    • filter351

      I second that. I also wish cydia had a filter so it would only show you tweaks that are compatible with your current iOS version.

      • Would also be nice if Cydia’s search was worth a darn! Your idea is much more important to everyone though. It is so unnecessary that we have never ending lists of tweaks that aren’t even compatible with our iOS. So yes, that idea is a must!

      • TheBoi23

        If you are up for the challege we can develop together

      • Hot12345

        You cant, brcause its not a opensource.

      • Manuel Molina

        Everyone wish Cydia had a lot of shit to it. That’s why Comex is making a better Cydia and Freeman is fearful of what would happen.

      • Fanboy 

        Only once something is released will Saurik panic and maybe start working on new features

      • It’s not up to Saurik. That’s on a per-repo basis.

    • McBobson

      Why? What would they put on it?

      • James G

        They could make it better maintained than some others out there based on how well they maintain their own site. Also could be used for pre-released, exclusive tweaks.

        Could also be a revenue stream for them.

  • iPodDroid

    I’m still waiting for more info on iOS Blocks

  • Pablo

    What was the name of a tweak released recently that allows to set custom time for auto-lock?

    • Springtomize 3?

      • Pablo

        I didn’t know springtomize 3 could do that, but there was a tweak that adds new time settings to the lock section on settings app, and separates the stock times from your custom times with a broader separator line

  • Gabriel Anaya

    Heads up to every one, DO NOT UPGRADE TO THE NEWEST VERSION OF APPLIST. I’m stuck in safe mode after updating, and I’m seeing other people with the same problem.

    • Thanks for the heads up! I had this same issue with past updates and had to eventually restore my phone. I hated having to do it and I tried everything in the world to avoid it. Nothing I tried worked and I run very minimal jailbreak tweaks.

    • M L

      Same issue here. Wrote emails to Ryan. Sent him a crash report. For me it was a conflict with ‘polus’. I removed that and now all normal. So don’t know if it’s polus and Applist. Or Applist and certain other apps. But Ryan is aware.

  • I know it’s offtopic, but I really wish iDB would do an article on the iPhone screen. My stupid family still all is suckered into buying screen protectors for their iPhones. Such a stupid waste of money and they pixelate your screen.
    Since the 4S I have never had a scratch on my iPhone screen and it gets plenty wear & tear.
    So please help me out iDB! My family never listens to my opinion unless I have an Internet article to prove it….

  • I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a review of MagicBlink. It sure seems like a pretty innovative tweak and much more interesting than something as pointless as NoSwitchBar.

  • bd14u

    Still waiting for Ringers & Tone to be updated to IOS 8.1.2 or 8.2 🙂

  • mr_blizzard

    i try Digital Clock Icon tweak looks cool but after I installed , my phone was connected to charge and battery getting down

  • disqus_iWiM9EgI1s

    If anybody could help!!!! My jail broken iPhone 6 on 8.1.2 won’t show album artwork when I play music from pandora spotify or the music app on my lock screen for some reason anybody know how to fix this??!!!!!!

    • Scott Curry

      There’s a tweak that removes that (I can’t remember the name). Are you sure you didn’t install that?

      • octavio garcia hernandez

        same problem here and my list of tweaks it’s very large
        please help dude…

    • Scott Curry

      Look for BetterLSMedia…
