Top 5 iOS 8.x Jailbreak Tweaks You Can Download This Week
Here's a list of the best Cydia jailbreak tweaks for iOS 8.x which you can download this week. There are a handful of tweaks to choose from to take your jailbreak experience to a whole new level.
Alympus - New Home For Apps, Music Control And Toggles
You might not know what Alympus does right away by just the name, but it's actually pretty epic in terms of functionality. The tweak redesigns the app switcher, Control Center, and the music interface completely.
It enhances the user-experience of the app switcher by giving it a makeover with 2x2 grids and more. For music lovers, your music controls on iOS 8 will have a brand new interface along with a beefed up Control Center and system toggles.
When you want to see which apps are running in the background, instead of double pressing on the Home button, just swipe up from the bottom of your screen. This will take you to the app switcher view, giving you a glimpse of recently opened apps with different viewing styles or just the icons itself.
There's a lot more to be discovered in the tweak, and if you want to download Alympus right away, you can grab it from the BigBoss repo in Cydia, costing $3.99.
CirDock - Supercharge The iOS Dock With Different Options
CirDock is a Barrel-like tweak for iOS, where it provides users with many different styles to customize their app icons in the Dock. Some of these include the spinning animation, wheel, and Cover Flow. In addition to that, you can also add more than 4 apps to the Dock along with switching between standard and pre-configured mode.
Ariki - Text Safely While Walking
Texting while walking or driving is one of the most dangerous things you could ever do. For drivers, there is no safe solution to do both things at the same time, however, the walking texters amongst us have a useful tweak they can utilize to make things a little less dangerous.
Ariki is a new tweak on the BigBoss repo that makes sure you're safe when walking and texting simultaneously by letting you see the ground right through your keyboard, essentially turning it into a mini viewfinder. As we mentioned before, you can grab the tweak from the BigBoss repo in Cydia and it costs just $1.49.
WeatherPeek - A Better Way To Glance At Weather
One of the most used stock apps on iPhone is Weather. Who doesn't want to know how hot or cold it is outside or plan for future vacations, right? Over the course of iOS releases, Apple hasn't done much with the app in term of design or adding new features.
But with the help of WeatherPeek for iPhone, checking the current weather becomes a breeze. WeatherPeek will display your weather forecast on the lock screen, Spotlight search, and even the home screen with a simple gesture. This tweak is now available on Cydia for just $1.99 from the BigBoss repo.
Macio - Launch Activator Gestures Using Key Presses
Macio is a paid jailbreak tweak that lets you open up anything with just a hold of a letter on your keyboard. It allows you to use specific keys as an Activator event. For example, if you want to trigger the Control Center, just hold the letter "c" on the keyboard, instead of having to swipe up from the bottom of your screen.
You can purchase Macio from the BigBoss repo for just $1.99 and it's compatible with iOS 8.
And that concludes our list for today. Be sure to check back next week for more jailbreak tweaks.
