Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Bounds, iPodify, & more…

Each Sunday, iDB takes all of the jailbreak-oriented news and tweak releases and complies it all into one easy-to-read outline so that our readers never miss a beat. This Sunday will be no different in that respect.

Today’s roundup will go over all the latest jailbreak content spanning the week of Monday, May 30th to Sunday, June 5th. We begin by discussing our favorite releases first and wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.

So without further ado, let’s jump right in.

Our favorite releases this week

Bounds – $2.50

Subscribe to iDB on YouTube

Bounds is a new jailbreak tweak that makes screen recording on iPhones and iPads more like it is on macOS by allowing users to designate a specific portion of the display to record rather than recording the entire thing.

Bounds also lets users save preset recording parameters so that that can be used over again in the future, and can be colorized however the user wants.

You can learn more about Bounds and how to use it in our full review post.
