A new tweak called Helius has recently appeared on Cydia Store. It allows to change the screen media controls on your iPhone or iPod touch. If you like listening to music on your smartphone or player, the tweak is surely what you need.
Let's take look at another useful tweak. This tweak is called PocketMode and it makes your iPhone ring louder when it is in your pocket or bag. The creator of the tweak is a guy named Nick Dawson. Quite recently, he has released PocketMode (version 2.0) with iOS 7 support.
A new iOS 7 tweak called Appellancy has recently appeared on Cydia. It allows iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners to unlock their devices using facial recognition. The creator of the tweak is named Elijah Frederickson.
A new iOS 7 tweak has been recently released by the guy nicknamed drewsdunne. The tweak is called TapToUnlock7 and it allows you to get rid of the 'Slide to Unlock' feature and use a customizable button instead. Well, those who for some reason don't like Apple's native unlocking system will be fond of the new tweak, I guess.
Good news for all those who like to change themes and the interface elements of their Apple devices - Springtomize 3, one of the most popular customization tweaks, has been recently updated for iOS 7.
Notification Center is a very useful element of Apple’s iOS 7. It is pretty functional, however, there’s a number of things you might want to add to quick launch in order to have access to them directly from the home screen.
A new tweak for iPhone 5s has been recently released in Cydia. It is called BioProtect and it allows you to use your fingerprint to protect certain apps from unauthorized access. For instance, you may set a fingerprint authentication for your Messages app - in such case, you won’t get access to the app unless Touch ID rescans your fingerprint.
iOS task switcher that is activated when you double-click the home button is obviously not the best solution for task switching on handsets.More user-friendly solution is implemented in webOS devices. It is based on metaphor of card switching and allows you to easily manage running tasks on the screen.
Last year we told about Greg Hughes, who created the "Wi-Fi Sync" app, which allows to synchronize your iOS-device with iTunes wirelessly. After Apple's rejection the developer sent it to the Cydia Store instead. Since then the app was sold over 50,000 times. But as you know, this week Apple unveiled that it made Wi-Fi Synchronization with iTunes an inbuilt feature in iOS5. In response Hughes decided to accuse the company in ripping his work.

Cydia lead developer Jay Freeman released Cydia 1.1.1. You can update it in Cydia. It became much faster and more stable.
Features of new Cydia will include:
- the ability to run and operate Activator, libstatusbar, and SimulatedKeyEvents while Cydia is running
- an overall speed improvement, including the “Loading Changes” dialog
- “much less” memory usage
- a more advanced search mechanism with a new relevancy algorithm
- better management of broken repositories
Here is a full changelog discussion from Saurik:
Graviboard is an upcoming interesting iOS jailbreak application, which will be soon available in the Cydia Store for $2.99. The application allows iDevice owners to set their icons free by abolishing the gravity that holds them on their places on the Springboard. You may drag these “floating” icons around the screen, and there still might open the apps by touching.
ScreenDimmer is a new app that provides longer battery lifetime for your iPhone by either dimming the device’s screen or switching off the backlight.
Auto-lock setting can be an alternative method of saving the battery, but it is not convenient to lock and unlock the device while you are waiting for something. It also provides power save by backlight reduction if not to use the phone for a time predefined by the user.
In whole ScreenDimmer is a convenient and easy in operation application for your iPhone. You can download it in Cydia Store via BigBoss repo, and its cost is only $.99.
Opera Software company just announced that it plans to show Opera Mini browser for iPhone during the Mobile World Congress 2010 (MWC).
"We are thrilled to offer journalists and partners an exclusive preview of Opera Mini for iPhone during the year’s biggest mobile event,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. “This is a unique opportunity to introduce the fast, feature-rich Opera Mini experience for the iPhone, and to showcase our latest beta releases of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini on other platforms and devices. Opera’s mission is to bring the Web to the world, and by making Opera Mini available on yet another platform, we are one step closer."
But remember that Apple would never allow alternative browsers that are not based on WebKit. So what's the point of all this? A Cydia Store release? The real intent might be to draw attention to Opera's Mobile and Mini browsers running on other platforms where the software is actually released like Symbian, Windows Mobile, and Android.
