Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Aurore, Signal Reborn, Viper, and more…

Those seeking ways to take their jailbroken iPhone or iPad to the next level have come to the right place. Here, we’ll be showcasing all the latest jailbreak tweaks released throughout the past week, starting Monday, July 6th and ending Sunday, July 12.

As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

Aurore – $1.99

The iPhone’s alarm experience works, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Aurore is a new jailbreak tweak that lets you use music from third-party apps like Spotify for an alarm sound, and it even integrates with the Clock app to make configuration easy. The tweak also incorporates aesthetic and behavior-based options for the alarm interface itself.

You can learn more about Aurore and what it can do for you in our full review.

Shortmoji – FREE

There’s a lot of unused real estate surrounding the iPhone’s keyboard, and even some of the used real estate could be used in a more effective way. Fortunately, a jailbreak tweak called Shortmoji can help in this department.

Shortmoji augments the iPhone’s keyboard by integrating shortcuts and Emojis into the top and bottom bars of the keyboard

Signal Reborn – $1.50

It’s been a really long time since the popular Signal & Signal 2 apps by PlanetBeing worked on jailbroken iPhones, but thanks to a newly released app dubbed Signal Reborn, you can relive those exciting times.

Signal Reborn maps nearby cellular towers and tries to discern which one(s) your iPhone is currently using to maintain its internet connection.

Spear  – $1.99

There’s nothing particularly wrong with the iPhone’s App Switcher, but that’s not to say that it can’t be better. Spear is a new jailbreak tweak that re-imagines the iPhone’s App Switcher in a number of ways.

Not only does it incorporate various useful toggles, but it even lets users force-quit all apps with a tap and customize app card aesthetics.

Velvet – $2.99

Notifications are personal, and that’s one reason why we think you should have the ability to customize how notification banners look on your device.

Velvet is a newly released jailbreak tweak that lets you do just that. Not only can it help you add custom colors, but it can also be used to adjust borders, backgrounds, text, and much more.

Viper – $2.99

Viper is a brand new jailbreak tweak that brings widgets, app drawers, and a snazzy time and weather display to the Home and Lock Screens.
