How to add download percentages to app installs

AppCent is a new jailbreak tweak that adds a percentage value beneath the app currently being installed on your iOS device. It’s a very simple tweak, and for smaller sized apps you probably won’t derive much value, but it’s nice to have for larger apps that take a long time to download.

Although a progress bar indicating your download percentage already exists in iOS, there’s something to be said for having actual numerical values that you can see and identify with…


Once installed, there are no settings or options to configure outside of a kill switch located in the Settings app. All you need to do is start downloading apps from the App Store, and you’ll see a numerical percentage beneath the app icon to go along with the normal progress bar.

AppCent can be downloaded for free on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
