As another week comes to an end, it’s only appropriate that we cap things off with another roundup for all of the jailbreak tweak releases we’ve seen throughout the following week.
In this piece, we’ll show you all of our favorite releases in detail first, and then we’ll outline the rest of them afterwards.
Our favorite releases this week
ClassicFolders 2 – $1.99
ClassicFolders 2 is a jailbreak tweak that makes your folders on iOS 10 look similarly to how they did back in the days of iOS 6 and earlier. It eliminates the full-screen effect to bring back the page break-styled folders known in earlier versions of iOS.
You have a number of different themes to pick from, whether you want the background to look modern (blurred) or to share the same background that existed in iOS 6 or iOS 4.
You can learn more about ClassicFolders 2 and how it works in our full review.
MaskedHotspotPass – FREE
I’ve always been sort of self-conscious about my Personal Hotspot password showing as a string of text when I open the Personal Hotspot preferences pane, as it enables people around me to peer over my shoulder and connect without my permission.
MaskedHotspotPass is the ultimate solution, as it masks your Personal Hotspot password with security dots at a first glance so that no one can connect without your permission. This way, you have to physically give someone your password for them to be able to connect.
You can learn more about MaskedHotspotPass and why it’s an upgrade over the stock interface in our full review.
Pigeon – FREE
Pigeon is a huge improvement for the notification system in iOS, as it enables the operating system to update your app icon badges any time you clear notifications from Notification Center.
This ultimately solves the problem of having to launch apps to dismiss their app icon badges after you’ve already cleared them from Notification Center, allowing you to escape from having to acknowledge notifications twice.
Because this has always been a pet-peeve of mine, I feel Pigeon is one of those must-have tweaks, and if you agree, you should check out our full review to learn how it works and where you can get it.
