Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Crane, Minotaur, Safari Downloader+, and more…

Those rocking jailbroken iPhones and iPads are often antsy to download the latest and greatest jailbreak tweaks so that they can get the most out of their pwned handset(s). On the other hand, it can be difficult to keep track of new releases and determine what the best of those are.

In this piece, we’ll be curating a list of all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, August 24th to Sunday, August 30th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases at the start and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest near the end.

Our favorite releases this week

Crane – $1.99

Crane is a slick new jailbreak tweak that allows users to sign into various instances of an application on their iPhone or iPad with multiple user accounts.

It’s useful for apps that don’t already support this functionality, and prevents you from having to sign out of an app just to sign in with another account and vice-versa.

You can learn more about Crane and how it works in our full review.

Destra – $0.99

Destra is a new jailbreak tweak that brings macOS-inspired notifications to the iPhone and iPad.

By moving notifications to the right side of the display as they would appear on your Mac, Destra brings a desktop-esque user experience to these devices. You can also configure banner aesthetics in more detail once installed.

Lyrication v2 – FREE

Song lyrics are an exciting component of music consumption, whether you like following along with the artist as they sing or you’re merely interested in what the artist is saying.

Lyrication v2 is a useful jailbreak tweak that brings a lyric browser to the Now Playing interface in virtually any music streaming app you can think of at no extra cost to you.

Minotaur – $2.00

Minotaur is a cool new jailbreak tweak that incorporates all your missed notifications into a small, Status Bar-centric hub.

Minotaur organizes your missed notifications by app and then lets you or dismiss them with ease. Best of all, it doesn’t replace Notification Center outright.

Safari Downloader+ – $3.99

Starting with iOS & iPadOS 13, Safari can already download files to the Files app, but the download manager experience still leaves a lot to be desired.

That’s one reason why you might want to try a new jailbreak tweak called Safari Downloader+, which lets you not only download files, but also media from specific media-centric websites and then easily import them to your handset’s media library.
