PerfectFit automatically resizes ‘outdated’ apps to support newer iPhone resolutions

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 20, 2017

Every so often you might come across an app you need from the App Store where the developer hasn’t even bothered to update the interface for the latest iPhone resolutions. In most cases, this means they’re still designed to work on the iPhone 4s resolution or earlier, and this leaves unsightly black bars at the top and bottom of the app.

As frustrating as this is, Apple still allows the apps to run (not for much longer), but they just won’t look as nice. A new free jailbreak tweak called PerfectFit by Tony Kraft can force these apps to run at a much more native-feeling resolution so they look better too. Read More

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 19, 2017

A new jailbreak tweak called Sonus by ubik is just one of many attempts to make the volume HUD better in iOS, and unlike much of the competition out there, it has a lot of options that you can take advantage of to deck out the tweak and make it look and feel the way you want it to. Read More

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 18, 2017

Your iPhone is a tool of communication, so you might spend a lot of your time lurking in the Messages app. As you know, it’s just as dull as almost every other stock app on your device; plain and white.
