Get an edge-to-edge Control Center interface in iOS 10 with NoCCFloating

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 29, 2017

Control Center came with quite a drastic UI change after iOS 10. It used to be a much fuller interface and it didn’t appear as a floating window in the middle of the screen like it does now.

If you preferred how it looked in iOS 9 and earlier compared to the way it looks now, then a new free jailbreak tweak called CCNoFloating by Pax Cex can help cure your nostalgia. Read More

This tweak brings a YouTube-inspired volume HUD to your iPhone

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 25, 2017

If you’ve ever used the YouTube app on your iPhone before, then you know Google has good taste in what a volume HUD should look like. Obviously, the monstrosity of a volume HUD that Apple continues to impose on iOS users is not something said users like to see, as it gets in the way of everything.

Because Google has the right idea, iOS developer midkin decided to create a YouTube-inspired volume HUD system that’s made to work across your whole iOS system. As a result, the new free jailbreak tweak YouTubeVolume was born. Read More

SleekNotifications makes notification banners more compact

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 17, 2017

One of the ongoing pain points of notification banners circa iOS 7 is their large size. Banners were originally introduced to keep notifications out the way, but Apple eventually made them taller, causing them to get in the way of more of what you’re doing.

A new free jailbreak tweak called SleekNotifications by Rishanan is now available to help quell the misery in this department, as it shirnks down the size of your notification banners so they take up less vertical space on your screen. Read More

 

BouncyNC10 makes the Notification Center launch animation bouncier

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 17, 2017

When you drag Notification Center down from the top of your screen, the interface normally just falls into place. The stock animation is a little boring, and some might argue that it could do with some additional creativity.

BiggieSmallcc makes the album artwork more more prominent in Control Center

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 15, 2017

One of the great things about Control Center is how it offers access to Music controls anywhere you might need them. Part of the music control interface shows an album artwork illustration for whatever media is playing. Of course, some jailbreak developers would argue that it needs improvement.
