Have you ever stumbled upon a new Cydia release that you wished to remember, but then later forgot about it? Wouldn’t it be cool if you could designate your favorite tweaks so that you could easily remember and find them later?
That’s the basic premise behind FavoriteTweaks, a new jailbreak tweak release from developer iMokhles. It allows you to save Cydia releases and manage them from one central location.
FavoriteTweaks requires iOS 8 and Cydia 1.1.19 or higher. After installing the tweak, you’ll find a new star icon in the upper right-hand corner of the main Cydia tab.
When you tap the star icon, you’ll be taken to your listing of favorite tweaks. Once there, you can use the ‘+’ sign in the upper right-hand corner to search for and add tweaks to your favorites.
Tapping on a favorite works exactly like you might assume, in that it takes you to the package description page of the tweak. You can also swipe on the name of the tweak and access additional options like Modify, Install, or Delete. Users can rearrange the items in the list of favorites by using a tap-hold-and-drag gesture to reorder the contents.
Some may question the use-case-scenario of FavoriteTweaks, but I think the situation outlined in the beginning of this post is its most apt use. It’s simply a place where you can store tweaks, installed or not, that you wish to access later.
What do you think about FavoriteTweaks? Would you consider using it in your Cydia workflow?
