Tweaks of the week

It’s that time of the week again, and we’ve compiled a roundup of all the jailbreak tweaks released this week and put them into a convenient list for you to easily digest and consider for your jailbroken device.

We’ll split this list up into two sections like we always do, starting with those that we thought were the best of this week’s releases. Then, we’ll share the rest of them afterwards.

Without further ado, check them out!

Our favorite releases this week

Phenomenon – $2.99

Phenomenon a new app switcher and control center for iOS 9

Phenomenon is a pleasant App Switcher replacement jailbreak tweak for iOS 9 that combines the App Switcher and Control Center interfaces into one.

With its sleek animations and beautiful design, Phenomenon even works with 3D Touch to make App Switching even more fun than ever before.

For those without 3D Touch, Activator integration makes it easy to use on all jailbroken iOS devices.

There are plenty of options to configure to get Phenomenon looking and working the way you want, but you’ll have to read our full review to learn more about the inner workings of the tweak.

IGExperiments – FREE

IGExperiments White Instagram After

It was recently discovered that Instagram was working on a new design for its mobile app for iPhone, but since it’s not out yet, no one has it yet.

Fortunately, if you are jailbroken, you can use IGExperiments to enable the experimental redesigned Instagram app. It appears to have a lot of ‘flatter’ qualities that make the app more iOS 7 and later-esque, such as the whiteout UI and more.

IGExperiments also provides access to a lot of other internal app experiments the Instagram development team has baked into the app, but are not yet ready for the prime time. Still, you can always experiment with them for fun.

To learn more about IGExperiments, such as how to enable the new Instagram app design with it, you can read our full review.

It wasn’t the busiest week in history for jailbreak tweak releases, we know, but it’s normal for the jailbreak community to see a hiccup when there’s no jailbreak for the current version of iOS.

Nevertheless, if you’re searching for more tweaks, don’t forget to hit up our previous jailbreak tweaks of the week roundup and to keep your eyes on iDB for all upcoming jailbreak tweak releases!
