With the jailbreak community becoming a bit more active in recent weeks, we’ve seen a number of interesting releases and even teases of upcoming releases that are sure to knock your socks off.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all of the jailbreak tweaks that were released during the past week, starting with our favorites. We’ll outline all of the rest of the tweak releases after we get through the best of the best.
Our favorite releases this week
ActIf 2 – FREE
Activator is a highly-original and useful extension for jailbroken devices, but a new add-on for it called ActIf 2 can make it even more useful, as it adds support for conditional statements.
With conditional statements, you can make Activator events happen only when it meets a specific criteria first. For example, if music is playing, you can use Activator to allow the volume up button to move to the next track. Otherwise, the volume button will continue to adjust volume as usual.
There are limitless potentials for how ActIf 2 can be used, but it comes down to your creativity. You can read our full review of ActIf 2 to learn more about just how useful it really is.
Kairos 2 – $2.99
Kairos 2 lets you schedule iMessages and text messages to go out at a future date and time rather than the instant you tap on the Send button.
You can set up repeating scheduled messages or one-time scheduled messages, and you can even configure smart features that ensure the message gets delivered even when you use Airplane Mode or have a low battery percentage.
Perfect for birthdays and other annual events you would otherwise forget about, Kairos 2 is something iPhone users have wanted for ages, and you can learn more about how it works in our full review.
