KillBackground10 lets you force quit all apps from the App Switcher

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 9, 2017

Many people leave their apps alone in the App Switcher until they start to have problems with them, and will use it to force quit those apps so they can be restarted again.

Even though iOS handles its very limited allocation of memory automatically, it’s not always as efficient at it as you’d like it to be. This can impact your device’s animations and performance, and it’s why iOS developer ichitaso released KillBackground10, a jailbreak tweak you can use to force quit all apps on iOS at once.

This tweak removes the “Share This App” option from 3D Touch app shortcuts

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 7, 2017

When Apple initially started adding support for 3D Touch to apps on the Home screen in iOS 9, there were some that supported the feature, and some that didn’t. Then came iOS 10, where Apple attempted to make the feature more ‘useful’ for apps that didn’t utilize 3D Touch in creative ways by adding the “Share This App” menu option to those apps.

Because a lot of people don’t need or want to share their apps, and because it feels like unnecessary clutter to even have this menu option there in the first place, a new free jailbreak tweak called NoSharePlz by Olxios&Nico is now available in Cydia to remove it once and for all. Read More

Cydia 1.1.28 exits beta: purchases now enabled on iOS 10

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 5, 2017

Since the release of yalu102 for iOS 10.0-10.2, users of the newest jailbreak have been unable to make new purchases on the Cydia store. This is completely normal behaviour; Saurik disables purchases on new firmware versions until both Cydia and the jailbreak reach a level of stability. The reason for this is to prevent complaints, refunds, and device problems brought about by the purchase and use of incompatible tweaks.

Today Cydia 1.1.28 exited beta, and that, in combination with the relative stability of the later yalu102 beta builds, seems to have satisfied Saurik as to the platform’s readiness to receive paid transactions.
