If you are looking for some best jailbreak apps and tweaks for your iPhone 5 just before the release of iOS 6 untethered jailbreak, or if you landed on this post after you have jailbroken your device, here are few best and free tweaks and applications found in Cydia Store for your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4/3GS.
As we know iPhone 5 iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak is few hours away if everything goes according to the plan of evad3rs team. Meanwhile, this is the best time to get some valuable information regarding the best free stuff you can install on your device.
This list contains mostly those apps which I have ever used or using right now on my iPhone.
This app is free as long as you want to use it free. However, you can purchase it too to help the developer in terms of money. It is my favourite app. You can use it to search any file, edit it and change the values etc. One of its features I like most is its ability to connect with any PC/device through WiFi. Using this feature we can transfer files, photos etc without using data cable.
Activator allows you perform different actions by using multitouch gestures. You can also invoke different apps and actions by controlling the hardware parts of your iPhone, like triple pressing of home button, double press volume up, long press sleep button, short press sleep button. You can lock your phone by simply taping status bar, go to home screen by double-tapping status bar, go to next song by give a long-press to volume up/down etc. In fact it provides endless possibilities.
WiCarrier is one of my best tweaks. I always install it on my all devices. Though its function is very simple but very handy. It replaces the network name present in the Status bar with the WiFi network name currently the device is connected to. With this tweak I can easily see to which WiFi router I am connected to without going to Settings -> WiFi. If iPhone is not connected with any WiFi, it shows the carrier name.
Before the introduction of Notification Centre in iOS, SBSettings was one of my favourite app. It gives you quick access to iPhone Settings within leaving any app. You don’t need to exit the app and launch Settings.app to enable/disable the system settings. All the toggles are present at one tap by using this app on your iPhone 5 and other iPhone models.
If you are a true internet browsing fan, this tweak is for you. It enables you to open more than 8/9 tabs on your iPhone/iPad Safari. By default, when you open more than 9 tabs, the last opened tab is automatically closed. Tab+ gives your freedom to open as much tabs as you want. But I will suggest you to close the unused tabs to recover the memory, otherwise your iPhone may react slow after opening so many tabs.
The other handsets have an option to change the theme to give a new look and feel to the device, but there is no such option available in iPhone except the changing of wallpaper. Winterboard application lets you install new themes from Cydia.
NCsettings is a good alternative of SBSettings. If you love minimalism, this app is for you. It adds a sleek bar in the notification centre where you can control the common Settings toggles with one tap.Though it is not a function-rich app, but still very handy.
I always keep this little tweak installed on my iPhone. It hides the “Slide to Power off” option and prevents the intruders to turn off the device. If anyone steals an iDevice, the very first thing he’ll do is to shut down the phone if the device is locked. But this tweak won’t let him do so. To turn off or to restart the device, you can use NCSettings or SBSettings.
Do you hate extra taps when the same job can easily be done with one single tap? FastClear gives you one-tap solution to clear the notifications from Notification Centre. It replaces the cross symbol (X) with CLEAR button so that you don’t have to wait for another tap to remove the notifications.
A simple tweak which kills all the apps running in the background. A new button is added to the AppSwitcher for this purpose.
Do you want to use Google Now instead of Siri? NowNow tweak replaces Siri with Google Now.
Icon Passcode and Folder Passcode:
These tweaks are used to set a passcode for an app or folder. Icon Passcode locks an icon whereas Folder passcode locks an entire folder with a password.
Ipsum allows you to remove the Notifications even when the device is locked. You don’t need to unlock the device and remove them. Simple clear the alerts from the lock screen after installing this tweak.
Besides the hype created by Apple about their new Maps app, I still love Google maps. One reason is that it provides accurate and finer details for the area where I live. MapsOpener tweak opens the maps links in Google maps instead of default Apple’s Maps App.
F.lux changes the colour of devices according to night and day time to give a soother experience. F.lux warms up your screen you match the lightning of night.
AnyAttach: Attach any file to email
HiddenCallLog: Hide the call history
Ask to Call: It ask for one more time before dialling the number.
