Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Diamond, Sphere, VolumeMixer, and more…

As the final day of the weekend rears its ugly head, the good news is that we’re back with another jailbreak tweak roundup showcasing all the latest releases from this past work week.

This roundup will encompass releases from Monday, November 2nd to Sunday, November 8th. As usual, we’ll start things off by talking about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

Diamond – $2.30

There’s no disputing the fact that the iPhone’s Dock and Status Bar interfaces have changed very little over the years. Fortunately for those looking for something new and refreshing, a jailbreak tweak called Diamond brings a lot to the table.

Diamond conjoined the two interfaces into one, and it can be accessed by tapping on the SpringBoard icon or with the Reachability gesture. What appears in the Diamond interface is fully configurable, as are its aesthetics and behavior, among other things.

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

Sphere – $2.99

Multitasking is a component of iOS that we don’t yet think has reached maturity. While it’s fairly decent on the iPad these days, iPhone users still need to jump from one application to another on a stock device. That’s why we like a new jailbreak tweak called Sphere.

With Sphere, you can interact with several applications all at once in a Chat Heads-inspired interface. With it, you can have windowed apps running over the top of others and multitask more efficiently than ever before.

VolumeMixer – FREE

One of the fundamental problems that we think iOS still has with regard to volume controls is that users can’t yet configure their volume level on a per-app basis.

VolumeMixer is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak that resolves this issue by letting users configure volume levels for their applications independently of one another.
