It was just April Fool’s week, but you won’t find any pranks here. With the unc0ver iOS 12
In this roundup, we’ll summarize each of this week’s new jailbreak tweak releases. As usual, we’ll start by discussing our favorites and then outline the rest in an easy-to-read fashion afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
iCaughtU 12 – $2.50
iCaughtU 12 is a classic jailbreak tweak that has been re-branded for jailbroken iOS 12 devices, and so it’d be hard not to mention it in our favorites this week.
With iCaughtU 12, you can easily learn who’s snooping or stealing your device. The tweak takes a picture with the front-facing camera when your passcode is entered incorrectly and sends it along with location and batter information to an email and SMS phone number of your choosing.
You can learn more about iCaughtU 12 and how it works in our full review.
NomadPods – FREE
Although it seems so simple, we’re excited to include NomadPods as one of our favorite releases this week because it’s both unique and exciting to those who use Nomad’s Horween leather AirPods case to protect their AirPods.
This tweak simply replaces the graphic of the default AirPods case with that of Nomad’s brown Horween leather AirPods case, making it more realistic for those who use the accessory. The developer will soon allow color choice for those using Nomad’s other Horween leather assortments.
You can learn more about NomadPods and where you can get it in our full review.
Sleeper – $0.99
Alarms are an integral part of many peoples’ lives, but for whatever reason, Apple hasn’t done much to make the iPhone’s native alarm interface flexible around the dynamics of our lifestyles. For that reason, the jailbreak tweak Sleeper was conceived.
Sleeper brings a bevy of useful alarm-centric improvements to the native alarm interface on your iPhone, such as the ability to skip certain times or dates and to set a custom snooze threshold. Furthermore, Sleeper lets you skip the alarm entirely if you unlock your handset before it’s scheduled to go off.
If you’re interested in learning more about Sleeper and why it’s a must-have then check out our full review.
Textyle – $0.99
If you’ve ever wanted to format text for your text messages or social media pages with advanced Unicode themes, then you might take a liking to a jailbreak tweak called Textyle.
This tweak lets you customize the aesthetics of your text before it reaches the internet, and because it uses Unicode, your customizations will be visible across all other platforms besides your own.
