If you’re looking to simplify the look of Notification Center, then SimpleNC is probably up to the task. It is a tweak that features tons of switches, which allows you to disable specific Notification Center assets individually. The wonderful thing about SimpleNC is that it gives the user choice. You can go the subtle route, and only simplify bits and pieces of Notification Center, or you can go to extremes, and give it a makeover that you won’t soon forget. Read More
MultiIconMover+ is the follow-up release to one of the most handy jailbreak tweaks from a purely practical standpoint. The original MultiIconMover provided an easy way to move multiple app icons from one SpringBoard page to another. MultiIconMover+ takes this same concept and adds several new handy features to the mix. Read More
Kodi is the media center application that is the successor to XBMC. Actually, it’s pretty much the same exact app with a newly minted name. Over the years, I’ve grown to love XBMC, its versatility, flexibility, and overall usefulness as a media hub. It has the ability to turn an ordinary device into a media powerhouse. But before you get to any of that, you have to learn how to install Kodi. Yes, indeed, XBMC has a new name, and with it comes a slightly modified method of installation. Read More

It works by replacing the Tibetan keyboard in iOS, and presents it as its own keyboard, which functions as a place to access previous items saved to the pasteboard. If you’re someone who uses copy and paste on a regular basis, and desires a better way to manage pasteboard history, then Pasithea is a tweak worth checking out. Read More
Imagine having 30+ app icons in your iPhone dock, and being able to view them all at the same time and easily launch them all with no issues.

The trend that started about 3 weeks ago is getting more obvious as we enter yet another week with a slower output of tweak releases. I’m not necessarily complaining. I’m merely highlighting a trend that we all hope won’t be confirmed in the following weeks.
The launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus brought autofocus ability to the stock Camera app while recording video. This was a feature that many iPhone users clamored for, and when it was finally unveiled with the iPhone 6, it was met with a positive response.
Unfortunately, video autofocus was to be exclusive to the newer devices, and wouldn’t be retroactively added to older devices like the iPhone 5s via iOS 8. But that all changed today when a new jailbreak tweak called AFVideo was released. This tweak brings video autofocus to older jailbroken devices running iOS 8. Read More

As expected, Jay “saurik” Freeman has posted a lengthy response to Comex’s Cydia Substrate replacement strategy. In the post, which appears on his personal blog, he outlines some of the history he’s had with Comex, why open source isn’t always best, and drops hints on several new upcoming Cydia features. Read More
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard Comex’s name be associated with jailbreaking, but he’s back, and in a fairly large and controversial way. The creator of JailbreakMe is working with the team behind iMods—a Cydia alternative—to develop a Mobile (Cydia) Substrate replacement called Substitute. On the surface, it may not sound like much, but this could have far-reaching consequences on jailbreaking as we currently know it. Read More

If you’ve been around jailbreaking for any decent amount of time, then you’re no doubt familiar with Gridlock—a jailbreak tweak that allowed you to arrange Home screen icons with spaces in between them. Anchor, a new jailbreak tweak that just recently appeared on Cydia, takes this basic premise and brings it to iOS 8. Read More
Looking at the amount of new tweaks released this past week, it seems that there definitely is a slowdown happening. For reference, the last couple weeks had seen 30+ releases, some of them being massive tweaks too.

Maybe it was just one of those slow weeks, and things will pick up again in the next few days. In the meantime, have a look at these 23 tweaks and let us know which ones have peeked your interest.
