Clap tweak settings

Has it ever happened to you that you forgot where you left your iPhone? Be it at your home, office or a friends place, this can be very annoying, specially if your iPhone is on Silent/Vibrate. Don’t you wish you could just call out to your iPhone and expect a reply? Well, this new tweak called Clap, does just that.

Clap

Clap listens to loud noises such as clapping or shouting and runs in the background on your iPhone. To try and not drain your battery, it only listens at set intervals and responds with a short and loud alarm. Once the tweak is enabled and suppose you misplace your iPhone, you can play the Hide and Clap game with your device. Just like in the movie The Conjuring!

The tweak also has another feature that uses the accelerometer to determine if the device is in motion, so it doesn’t activate itself at the wrong time. You can also easily Enable/Disable the tweak using the Ringer switch on your iPhone. The developer says that the tweak’s effect on the battery is hardly noticeable.

Clap is available in the BigBoss repo for $0.99. As of now, it doesn’t support the iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8. Do you think this tweak will be useful to you?

Switchability tweak adds app switcher in Reachability view

A new Cydia tweak called Switchability brings the iOS App Switcher to the Reachability view on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Making the best of all the empty space when you turn on Reachability.

Switchability

Switchability lets you use the App Switcher from the Reachability view, making it easier to switch apps instead of double tapping the Home button every time. The tweak comes with plenty of options and gives a 3D or 2D Card like App Switcher, similar to how the Tabs appear in the Safari app. You also get other options that let you change the Title font, Space, adjust size of the Reachability view and more.

Once enabled, you’ll simply have to Double Tap the TouchID/Home button to launch Reachability and the App Switcher. Tap on an app card to switch to that app or swipe left to disable it. At the bottom of the App Switcher, you’ll also find options to close all apps and add your favorite apps.

WiFi Booster for iOS 8 jailbreak tweak

Sometimes, if a WiFi network doesn’t have a strong signal, your iOS device will not show it in the WiFi options. The iOS Settings app doesn’t show a network below a certain signal strength. That doesn’t mean that you cannot connect to it, but iOS doesn’t let you. To get rid of that problem, there’s a new tweak available in Cydia right now, called WiFi Booster.

WiFi Booster

Like its name, the tweak boosts WiFi reception on your iOS device and displays every available network in range, including the weak ones. It also shows the MAC address of the WiFi network along with true signal strength.

Therefore, using the WiFi Booster tweak, you can connect to a network that would otherwise be impossible to connect to. This tweak isn’t new, it’s been available on iOS 7 and older for sometime now. However, it was recently updated with support for iOS 8.

wifi-booster-ios-8

WiFi Booster isn’t a free tweak and will cost you $1.99. Is it worth it? Well, we’ll let you decide that. If you were already using WiFi Booster on iOS 7, then the update is free on iOS 8.

Try it out and let us know what you think of this tweak.

CameraTweak 3 tweak in action

The stock Camera app on iOS 8 doesn’t really give you a lot of options to meddle with. If you’re someone who prefers manual settings over automatic, then you’re going to love this tweak. CameraTweak has been available for a while now, but it was recently updated to CameraTweak 3 and came with iOS 8 support and a few other features.

CameraTweak 3

CameraTweak for iOS 8 brings extra features to the stock Camera app, such as a time lapse timer, manual focus, exposure, ISO, shutter speed and more. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cameras are awesome, but the stock camera doesn’t really do justice to the hardware. With this tweak installed, you can take some truly amazing shots with ease.

Using the tweak, you can adjust the resolution of the camera and the FPS when shooting videos. It also comes with four different composition overlays to help you get that perfect pictures.

cameratweak3-1

CameraTweak 3 is available in the BigBoss repo for $1.49 and it is totally worth the money. It is only compatible with iOS 8, if you want the tweak on iOS 7 or earlier devices, you will have to try out CameraTweak 2.

Allarm cydia tweak in modmyi repository

If you’re not a morning person, but are forced to wake up early to go to work, school etc, then you probably set back to back alarms. Allarm is a new Cydia tweak that allows you to turn on all alarms in one tap.

Allarm

A very simple yet functional tweak that will save a few seconds every night. After installing the tweak, you’ll see a Toggle All Alarms button when you set an alarm. If you have set back to back alarms for every half hour, you can simply use this tweak to turn on or off all the alarms. Very useful for the lazy ones and the sleepy-heads.

There is another way of doing this, and that is with the help of Siri. Simply say Enable all alarms or Disable all alarms and Siri will do what this tweak does. So, is this a useful tweak? Well, maybe for some.

volume amplifier cydia tweak on iPhone

The volume on the new iPhones is good, but it isn’t great as compared to other Android phones out there. The iPad volume is even worse. If you have a jailbroken device, then you can use the Volume Amplifier tweak to increase your devices volume by up to 200 percent. That’s loud!

Volume amplifier

Volume Amplifier isn’t a new tweak, but it has been recently updated to support iOS 8 and the newly launched Apple devices. Using this tweak, you can amplify any sound that comes from your devices external speaker, ear speaker and headphone output. Increasing the volume over a certain level and keeping it that way can and will damage your speaker. However, if you do it only when you need it, you can actually benefit from the extra sound.

After installing this tweak, you won’t have any Settings to play with. To amplify volume, keep pressing the Volume up button after it reaches full. The Volume Amplifier bar will show up and show the percentage of volume increased. Try not to hit the red level.

volumeamplifier1

The tweak will not work on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Also, on the iPhone 4s, you can only amplify the sound for In-call loudspeaker. On all other devices, including the new iPhone 6/6 Plus, Volume Amplifier can amplify all sounds.

You can download  from the BigBoss repo in Cydia for $1.99. Once again, make sure not to amplify the sound too much, or you could end up damaging your speakers.

Have you ever played a game and all of a sudden, as you were playing, you swiped from the bottom or top of the screen and the Control Center or Notification Center appeared? This happens to me all the time and it gets annoying! Well, you no longer have to worry about this happening again if you install the Central Hider Cydia tweak.

Central Hider will disable the Control Center or Notification Center by activating the tweak with an Activator gesture so you can enjoy your games without any disturbance. Once the tweak has been installed, head on over to the default Settings app to configure its options. You have to enable the option you want on first in order for the Activator gestures you select to actually toggle the corresponding switch.

Central Hider cydia tweak jailbreak centric

If this tweak interests you, it is available to download from the BigBoss repository for free. It requires iOS 7 to work properly.

The CCLoader jailbreak tweak, developed by Jonas Gessner, allows you to enable/disable and reorder sections in the Control Center to your liking. For instance, the separator lines between sections can easily be removed and the media controls can be set to only show when media is playing, with just a switch of a toggle. CCloader also allows users to add Notication Center widgets. To configure the tweaks options just head over to the stock Settings app>CCLoader.

What’s even better with this tweak is that it also acts as a developer utility. Developers are able to create custom Control Center sections that are loaded into the Control Center by CCLoader. Check out the screenshots below to see some examples of the tweak in action and its settings.
