NoClutter helps jailbreakers embrace their minimalist instincts

Minimalists rejoice! A newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed NoClutter by iOS developer Quix aims to be a one-stop shop for all your iOS de-cluttering needs.

In a nutshell, NoClutter provides users with a plethora of de-cluttering options for all parts of iOS, and it does so in just one tweak. Because of this, you can even de-clutter your installed package list by removing many of your one-off de-cluttering tweaks, which conveniently allows minimalists to de-clutter while they de-clutter…

As we mentioned before, NoClutter provides options for all parts of iOS, and this includes the App Switcher, Folders, Home Screen, Lock Screen, Safari, SpringBoard, Status Bar, and more. Users will find unique options for hiding certain elements from each user interface in a new dedicated preference pane that gets added to the Settings app after installation:
