Tweaks of the week pangu

    Sebastien, thank you for not choosing Auxo 3 as one of your picks of the week.

    • Jayy

      Lol you really hate Auxo!

      • Merman123

        I’m just very upset about it. And Auxo is usually a favorite here at iDB so that was a nice change. Although I do find Sebastien being the least biased so that was expected 🙂

      • Jayy

        Same, I’m very disappointed too! I was happy when I went on Cydia’s change list and noticed “Auxo 3 (iOS 9)” but was soon after upset about the UI chance / pricing for previous users. Mainly the UI change!

    • Alex Blaha

      I don’t get it, Auxo 3 is on the list though..?

      • Merman123

        It’s on the list because this is a tweaks of the week roundup. At the very end of the post you will see he posts his picks of the week.
