Top Tweaks Late August 2

I think it’s safe to say that jailbreaking doesn’t seem to be slowing down much, despite the just-released iOS 8.4.1. Jailbreak developers are still putting out tweaks at a blistering clip, as evident by our tweaks of the week post this weekend.

Just in case you may be a little behind on what’s new, we’re showcasing 20 recently released jailbreak tweaks in less than five minutes. Watch this video for a quick refresher of what’s recently been put on Cydia, and remember, this is just a portion of the releases to land over the last few weeks.

As you can see, the majority of the tweaks featured in this video are free, and only a few of them are paid. There’s lots of really good tweaks featured in the video. Here are a few that especially stood out to me:

Browsix

It’s basically a mini web browser that you can access anywhere. You can move the browser around the screen, resize it, and open it when tapping on external links in other apps. It’s $2.99, so it’s a bit pricey, but there are lots of options and settings to configure, and it works generally well.

Floater

Not only does Floater make it seem like the Control Center and Notification Center UI is floating in mid air, there are options for app icons and other UI elements as well. The icon masks provide you with a cell-shaded look that’s pleasing to the eyes, no WinterBoard needed.

HideBadgeText

I find that badges are much less annoying when they just appear as red dots and don’t remind me of how many emails I’ve yet to answer.

Cydia Ratings

We’ve already wrote about Cydia Ratings once, but it’s so good I had to show you again. Cydia Ratings brings App Store-like ratings to Cydia. Hopefully more people jump on board with this.

What’s your favorite tweak out of the bunch? Stay tuned, we’ll be back with more tweak goodness soon.
