Top 10 jailbreak tweaks for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in 2010-2011
I must say that 2010 is very rich in various tweaks and applications for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with jailbreak. We offer the top 10 free and paid jailbreak tools of 2010, which significantly expand the functionality of iOS and fully reveal the capabilities of Apple mobile devices.
10. Fast Copy
In tenth place of our top is a useful tweak of the copy-past function. The only thing that Fast Copy does is removes the delay that occurs every time you click on the buttons in the clipboard pop-up menu in iOS.
The buttons of the editing menu (copy, paste, select all) always hang a little before performing an action. In fact, this is made by Apple on purpose. This tweak eliminates it, accelerating the process of cutting, copying and pasting in iOS.
SwitcherPlus is one of the most useful tweaks, because it allows you to pin the icon of any program in the multitasking panel. This is very convenient, especially when using password collectors like LastPass, 1Password or any other application that you need to have quick access to.
IOS users with jailbreak have the opportunity to expand the functionality of the system using special tweaks. Utilities InfiniFolders and FolderEnhancer allow you to have unlimited folders, and InfiniDock - an unlimited number of icons in the dock.
Tweak ScrollingBoard combines the capabilities of all these programs and allows you to:
- add an unlimited number of icons to the dock and folders
- install iPod controls in the dock
- have volume and brightness controls in the dock
- install any add-ons and widgets
- have an AirPlay icon in the dock
- use the scrollview mode.
The SwitcherMod utility changes the functions of the toggle panel in iOS 4.x. For example, you can abandon the traditional way of closing applications by holding icons. SwitcherMod crosses all the icons in the multitasking panel to quickly remove unnecessary programs.
In addition, SwitcherMod allows you to change the algorithm for displaying icons. It’s strange to see applications that are not running in the multitasking panel, right? Instead of displaying active and recently used utilities, it’s more logical to leave only active application icons there. This not only reduces the slagging of the panel, but also more natural for the end user. If it is preferable for you to see recently used programs there, then in the Exited App Style setting there is the Transparent option, which makes the icons of idle applications transparent.
6. Action Menu
The Action Menu extends the capabilities of the standard copy-past feature in iOS. An additional package from Cydia contains a rich set of functions:
- Clipboard history
- Google Search, Wikipedia, Dictionary and Google Translator;
- Quickly send selected text via the Twetter client installed on the iPhone (Tweetie, Twitterific, Twittelator and TwitterFon)
It's no secret that even after several software updates, the distance sensor in the iPhone 4 continues to fail, delivering a lot of inconvenience when using a smartphone. CallLock from Cydia solves this problem by blocking the device’s screen during a call.
Manual mode allows you to lock the screen of the iPhone 4 with the Power button, without dropping the call.
RemoveBG does a very simple thing - it closes all applications running in the background. Removing all applications from the multitasking panel not only frees up memory, but also makes the iOS device faster and more efficient.
A toggle switch for SBSettings frees up iPhone memory in one tap.
Another extremely useful jailbreak app is Synchronicity. Tweak allows you to use your iPhone while syncing with iTunes via USB.
By default, when synchronizing (copying music, installing applications, etc.) with iTunes, “Sync in progress” appears on the iPhone screen. In this case, the phone becomes unavailable for work. If you need to go online or start an iPod, you have to interrupt the procedure.
Synchronicity removes this limitation by allowing you to work with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad during synchronization.
BiteSMS is the best SMS manager for iPhone. The program supports all the functions of the native application in iOS, including the landscape keyboard, MMS, forwarding function, deleting several messages and contains a number of its unique functions:
- Quick SMS creation / answer / call
- Insert emoticons and contacts
- Fast Forward / Delete
- Character / Shipment Counter
- Auto Correction Management
- Hiding the keyboard (by clicking on an empty space above the text)
To call a quick SMS, just tap on the speaker icon after pressing the volume button. This should be the native Message app on the iPhone.
The reason MyWi won the title of the best jailbreak tweak is simple. The program offers the most revolutionary feature for iOS: with one tap it turns the iPhone into an access point or Wi-Fi router. Now you can connect your laptop or iPad to the Internet in any place where there is a mobile connection with the iPhone.
If you were thinking about buying an iPad with Wi-Fi or 3G, then with this tweak for iPhone this question will disappear by itself. The program provides 40 and 104-bit WEP network encryption and allows any device to connect to the iPhone network in a few seconds.
