Got a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, but aren’t entirely sure how to get the most out of it? If this sounds anything like you, then you’ve come to the right place.
In this roundup, we’ll showcase all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, April 27th to Sunday, May 3rd. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Counted – FREE
Counted is a simple new jailbreak tweak that adds a day-centric countdown timer to your iPhone’s Lock screen. With it, you can more easily count down the number of days to a special event, be it a Birthday or something else.
It’s somewhat unfortunate that the iPhone doesn’t already have a feature like this given the platform’s wonderful timekeeping tools. On the other hand, it wouldn’t be the first time that the jailbreak community has addressed one of the iPhone’s shortcomings.
You can learn more about Counted and where you can get it in our full review.
DockX – FREE
DockX adds a slew of useful text-editing shortcuts to the bottom of your iPhone’s native keyboard interface, including copy, paste, cut, redo, and undo among others.
What we like about DockX is that it preserves the beauty and integrity of the iPhone’s wonderful native typing experience while also bringing something new and useful to the table.

Groups – $1.49
Groups is a must-have add-on for iMessage and SMS addicts who have more conversation threads than they can count. With it, you can sort your conversation threads into… you guessed it… groups.
This tweak makes it easier to differentiate between personal and professional conversation threads, whether that be work vs. friends, or school vs. family. Best of all, it integrates directly into the native interface, almost as if Apple themselves had created it.
You can learn more about Groups and how it works in our full review.
Quart – $1.99
Quart is a drop-dead gorgeous Lock screen and notification UI replacement for jailbroken iPhones. It will make receiving notifications and interacting with them a lot more fun throughout the day.
With it, the Lock screen displays information in a more civilized manner, while notifications throughout the rest of iOS are less intrusive than ever before.
You can learn more about Quart and why it’s a must-have for your pwned handset in our full review.
Scorpion – $2.99
Scorpion brings a beautifully re-imagined incoming call interface to the iPhone, replacing the clunky full-screen interface with a non-intrusive banner that lives at the top or bottom of your display.
The banner is fully customizable, and includes all the buttons and shortcuts that you’d come to expect from an iPhone’s incoming call interface.
