Whether you jailbreak to make your iOS handset look cooler, or you do it to add new features that Apple won’t provide out of the box, there’s no reason you can’t use a pick-me-up.
This roundup will showcase all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, May 4th to Sunday, May 10th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Circuliser – $1.49
Circuliser is a newly released jailbreak tweak that brings a circular audio visualizer to the Lock screen’s Now Playing widget.
The parameters surrounding the tweak’s appearance and behavior can be modified however the user likes, and this includes color, activity, and appearance, among other things.

ColoredScrollIndicator – FREE
If you’re any bit interested in a small, yet impactful means of customizing your jailbroken handset, then we think you’ll enjoy a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called ColoredScrollIndicator.
Just as the name implies, this tweak lets you colorize your iPhone’s scrollbars that appear whenever you peruse a preference pane or web page. You can use solid or gradient colors.

eggNotch – FREE
The novel iPhone’s infamous notch isn’t for everybody, and if you absolutely hate looking at it, then a new and free jailbreak tweak called eggNotch can help you get rid of it (sort of).
The tweak tricks you into thinking that your iPhone’s notch is gone by filling the top portion of your display with a black background. The color can be customized if you so wish to use something besides black.

InstaLauncher 2 – $3.00
Who doesn’t like faster access to their favorite apps? If you’ve always wanted a quick and easy way to get to them from anywhere in iOS, then a jailbreak tweak called InstaLauncher 2 could be right up your alley.
InstaLauncher 2 can take one of three forms, including an alphabetical application searcher, an application-filled panel, or a focused application Dock. With it, your favorite apps are never more than a gesture away.

SettingsWidgets – FREE
SettingsWidgets is a simple must-have jailbreak tweak for pwned handsets that adds informative widgets to the Settings app’s interface.
Users can choose between battery, storage, or Wi-Fi-centric widgets, all of which display pertinent information at a glance in an Apple-esque manner.
