Kaze brings Auxo’s popular alternative app switching mode to a standalone tweak

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 26, 2017

Anyone who was a fan of Auxo probably remembers one of its biggest individual features, Hot Corners, which supercharged the experience of multitasking on iOS by empowering you with the ability to swipe up from a specific corner of your device to quickly switch between apps.

This feature is now being reborn in a new free jailbreak tweak called Kaze by Qusic and Sentry. This essentially takes that one feature from Auxo and packs it into a standalone tweak. Read More

Eyeplugs prevents unwanted notification banners from getting in the way

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 25, 2017

Apple’s banner notification system leaves a lot to be desired, especially since modern banners are so huge when they appear that they cover all kinds of important parts of your apps, such as navigation bar, which is often an essential part of navigating your apps.

Because banner notifications are excessively large, a new free jailbreak tweak called Eyeplugs by the author The Holy Constituency of the Summer Triangle can help prevent them from appearing whenever you’re inside of designated apps, but once you close the app(s), you’ll get a summary of all your missed notifications.

Anyone who considers themselves as a part of the latter group and goes to extreme lengths to stay organized might be able to benefit from a jailbreak tweak called Nest10 by Tony Kraft, which enables you to have nested folders (folder inside of folders) on your iOS 10 device. Read More

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 24, 2017

If you use your iPhone for listening to Music, then you are familiar with what the Lock screen’s Now Playing interface looks like; bland and boring, just as it has been for years.

On the other hand, a jailbreak tweak called Spin10 by s1ris transforms your Lock screen’s Now Playing interface into a circular modern marvel; something I wish Apple would implement right out of the box. Read More

EnableCCMute enables the hidden mute toggle in Control Center

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 24, 2017

It seems like Apple is hiding some pretty useful functionality from us in the iOS 10 Control Center that might remain hidden until a future release of iOS, such as a toggle for recording your screen and a toggle for Low Power Mode, but from the looks of things, it doesn’t end there.

If you have an iPad, then you’re probably familiar with the Mute toggle that appears in Control Center, which it’s not present on other iOS devices despite still existing in the system. A new free jailbreak tweak called EnableCCMute by iKilledAppl3 enables this hidden toggle on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Read More
