Popular jailbreak tweak ‘CallBar’ receives a big iOS 7 update

CallBar for iOS 7

CallBar, the tweak that lets you better manage incoming calls, has received a fairly big update to better suite iOS 7. The tweak now features Notification Center integration, which allows users to handle all telephony needs from a familiar location. The update also features a re-designed incoming call screen, which allows you to use your device more efficiently while your iPhone is ringing.

All in all, CallBar for iOS 7 is a fairly massive upgrade over its predecessors from a visual and usability standpoint. Many of the functions remain the same, but the tweak has been laid out in a manner so that it’s easier to use and easier on the eyes. Have a look at our video overview of CallBar for iOS 7 after the jump.

Even though I only have a jailbroken iPod touch, I was able to benefit from CallBar due to its compatibility with both FaceTime and FaceTime audio calls. Of course, if you happen to have a jailbroken iPhone, the experience will be even better.

Users can access all of the normal functions of the Phone app or FaceTime app from anywhere. CallBar allows for true multitasking while managing phone calls.

You may be wondering to yourself how outgoing calls are managed. Simple—an Activator gesture. By default, CallBar uses a tap-and-hold-on-the-status-bar gesture, which is apt given its close mating with Notification Center, but it’s by no means mandatory. Users can setup CallBar to work with any Activator gesture of their choosing.
