Jailbreakers have been hard pressed to get some really functional jailbreak tweaks as of late. The lack of a jailbreak on Apple’s latest firmware has put Cydia in somewhat of a drought.
Nevertheless, there are still some jailbreak developers who are still developing for the jailbreak community, and although this week has once again been slow, Cydia isn’t completely dry just yet. We’ll go over this week’s releases in this roundup.
Our favorite releases this week
Nowability – $0.99
Nowability is a new tweak that supercharges your Reachability interface with additional information so that you’re not left with just a blank space on your screen when you’re using the feature.
The tweak provides information about your last-received notification, as well as information about any media that might be playing at the moment you open the Reachability interface.
Both of the widgets are designed to look a lot like the notifications in iOS 10 and are fully interactive. You can tap on the controls in the music widget to control your music, or tap on the notification widget to get to the app with the notification you’ve missed.
You can learn more about Nowability in our full review of the tweak.
Decorus – $0.99
Decorus is a new tweak that brings an iOS 10-like dynamic to the Control Center experience in iOS 9.
More specifically, you get the modular Control Center that separates the music controls from the rest of Control Center, as well as the window-like interface that appears to hover over everything rather than take up an edge-to-edge footprint across your whole display.
The tweak comes with a variety of color customization options, and as we show you in our full review, can also be made to look even more like iOS 10 with the help of a jailbreak tweak duo combo than Decorus already does out of the box.
Other releases this week
AnalogStatus: replaces the Status Bar’s digital time with an analog clock (free – review)
ProximityLock: Lets you lock your iPhone with the proximity sensor (free – review)
Many developers are having fun playing with the iOS 10 betas rather than developing jailbreak tweaks, and we can’t really blame them. Nevertheless, Pangu recently demoed a jailbreak on iOS 10, so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll just have to be patient and wait for the public iOS 10 release to see what happens.
On the other hand, those who are still jailbroken still get more control over their devices, so we’ll be covering the jailbreak tweak news as it happens right here on iDB.
