Polus is now available on Cydia


Polus—the brand new Control Center QuickLaunch tweak for iOS 7—is available right now on Cydia to download. The tweak, which we covered extensively a few weeks ago, allows you to customize various aspects of the QuickLaunch shortcuts appearing in Control Center, including the amount of shortcuts, size, and shape.

You can even assign Activator actions to each QuickLaunch shortcut, including a single tap and a tap-and-hold gesture. This allows you to do interesting things like assign a tap-and-hold gesture to the Twitter app shortcut in order to launch the compose-new-Tweet sheet. When it comes to Polus your only limit is your imagination. Step inside to review our full video walkthrough of the tweak in action.

Polus is available for download on Cydia for a reasonable $0.99. I went ahead and purchased it myself to see if anything major had changed with the final build, but from what I can tell thus far, it looks very similar to the version I walked through on video above.

But it’s not like the tweak needed any additional features to warrant a purchase. Along with the ability to add custom Activator actions, you can add up to six QuickLaunch shortcuts and select from over 300 glyph icons to represent the apps you select. Even better is the fact that additional glyph packs will be available for download to expand the visual app representation.

If you’re looking to get more out of Control Center, then Polus is a tweak that you should consider trying. Be sure to let me know what you think about the release down in the comment section below.
