The jailbreak community is certainly going through one of its lulls, but that’s not to say we haven’t seen some exciting new releases in Cydia lately.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all of the jailbreak tweaks that launched throughout the following week, starting with our favorites and capping off with the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
SurpriseSelfie – $1.00
If you ever show people images from your Photos app, then you need SurpriseSelfie. This tweak lets you select one image or a range of images and prevent the viewer from looking at any images outside of the range you selected.
You can opt to make things happen when the user tries to circumvent your lock, such as taking their selfie or displaying a custom image from your Camera Roll.
To learn more about why SurpriseSelfie is such a great tweak, we recommend reading our full review in which we go more in-depth with its feature set.
Vigor – $1.99
Vigor is an entirely new concept for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that brings more usefulness to your Home screen app icons.
With the tap of a button, your Home screen app icons transform into tiny little widgets that display information about what’s going on inside the app. You can configure them to display app-driven data or missed notifications, depending on which you prefer.
Not only does this tweak look great on your device, but it brings new life to the Home screen. If you’re interested in learning more about how it works and why it’s a must-have, read our full review of Vigor.
