Indulge Top Paid

Indulge is a brand-new first-of-its-kind jailbreak tweak that allows users to view the most popular Cydia releases based on aggregate user install data.

Cydia has never had a way to view the most popular jailbreak tweaks available for download, but with the recent 1.1.19 update, it can now do that and a whole lot more. Indulge is a jailbreak tweak that’s available on developer Steve Rolfe’s beta repo. If you’d like to take it for a test drive, check out the installation information that follows.

Indulge can be installed from the following beta repo:

http://apt.steverolfe.com

You can also add the tweak directly by tapping on this link from your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.

Once Indulge is installed, launch Cydia, and you’ll instantly notice a difference. Indulge replaces the entire front page of Cydia with a new Top Tweaks page. This new page includes two tabs for switching between the top free and the top paid jailbreak tweaks on Cydia.

Each list is filled with 20 tweaks that are based on user installation numbers aggregated from users who install Indulge. As such, you automatically opt in to have anonymous data sent to the developer’s server in order to tally tweak installation data.

That means that the data showcased in Indulge is only as good as the amount of users that use the tweak. If only five individuals have Indulge installed, then the sample data is much less, and therefore not as telling as it would be if the tweak was installed on 5,000 devices.

I’m not a huge fan of the fact that Rolfe outright replaces the front Cydia page—the app should simply add another tab to Cydia similar to how TweakHub handles things—but it is beta, so we should give him some time to work things out.

Outside of that complaint, Indulge is a pretty promising tweak, as it’s the first to actually provide real data to other Cydia users about the tweaks we use the most.

What do you think about Indulge?

  • Thomas Hopkins

    Nice! This looks like it’ll be very popular – if it doesen’t take up the entire home page, which is where you access the resently added ‘tweak discovering’ feature. Otherwise, no one will use it.

    • MarioBros640

      It no longer takes up the Cydia home page, it now has a separate tab for it self now similar to tweak hub.

  • James G

    Saurik made the right move with 1.1.19. Cydia has reached a new level!

    • Thomas Hopkins

      Agreed.

  • Chris Tangler

    can someone help me with something…i have an iphone and so does my wife…she isn’t good with tech at all so she I have her setup to just use my apple ID…so, when I get a call her phone also gets the call. I have handoff turned off on her phone but it still keeps coming through. How can I stop this?

    • askep3

      Go into FaceTime settings and see if “iPhone cellular calls” is on, and turn it off.

      Edit: it might not work, but that’s all I could think of

      • Chris Tangler

        that may be it…it was turned on…thank you so much…it was very annoying (for her)

      • askep3

        Haha no problem, but if you have an iPad or Mac, it won’t get the calls either, if you want that then you should change the iCloud account on your wife’s iPhone.

      • Chris Tangler

        i changed it on her phone not mine. I use handoff on my phone so as long as it works on mine, it’s all good. And if not, oh well. I work from home and my phone is my work phone. She was getting random numbers calling her all day while on the same wifi. She was annoyed. I actually didn’t know it was going on. She had been on 7.1.2 but last week she wanted updated to 8.4. She wasn’t jailbroke and doesn’t let me touch her phone. God I wanted her phone just to be able to use bitesms again but she said no.

      • askep3

        Oh I see, but won’t you still get calls from her phone?

      • Chris Tangler

        nope. i have handoff off on her phone. so nothing but her calls go to her phone…now calls on my phone will still go to my mac since i have handoff still on…all has been working as it should for 23 days now 🙂

    • ItisLoading

      Chris,
      Make sure that in your facetime setup, you register with phone # instead of email address. That is probably why both you are getting the same call.

      • Chris Tangler

        actually that was the first setting i changed…it didnt stop though. actually why i asked on here. @askep3:disqus suggested go into facetime settings and turn off iphone cellular calls and that worked…i already had handoff off on her phone as well. has been working fine since

  • Scope

    The link that takes you right to the tweak makes you install the source first??

    • Hi

      No it’s a direct link to the tweak.

  • JayDee917

    And I thought jailbreaking iPhones was dying.

    Thank Saurik for the move to mobile from root, and the Chinese jailbreak teams.

    This is an exciting time for the jailbreak community!

  • Zencowboy007

    Like this.
    Also, I like SPtouch over VirtualHome for colors/resize/moving around. Just my 2 cents. 1st thing I install is activator and SPtouch each time:-)

    In other news, FTC is investigating the Crapple shady business practices behind the new Apple Music…but iDB being run by a cult of sheeps refuses to post about such significant Apple related new.

  • Wonder if there could now be a rating system for Cydia, that’ll be awesome.

    • Edwin Martinez Vazquez

      That already exists, but it’s also in beta and I forgot what it’s called.
      I installed it and Cydia was going really slow, but I am using an iPod Touch 5 so that might be why.

  • brad

    Was just updated to its own ‘Top Rated’ tab! Great tweak so far. Small downside… it makes ‘search’ or ‘installed’ one more click away. Maybe a tweak will be made to rearrange the order of the tabs…

    • WonkieInc

      Moving search was kinda a terrible idea

    • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

      If you click on the ‘more’ tab and click edit. You can rearrange them

      • brad

        Awesome! Thanks!

  • Tarek Al Shawi

    installed on my iPad , didn’t see it plz help

  • throttle clutch e brake

    Now what’s this about data sent to a server ?

  • throttle clutch e brake

    Does the tweak act like third party keyboards sending user data somewhere?

    Why is this shown
