Looks like it’s Sunday again and that means I have to make a short review of the most interesting events of these days for people who don’t have enough time to read each post we publish during the week.
There’s a new interesting tweak in Cydia called SleekSleep that lets you use the proximity sensor on your iPhone as a Sleep button. This means you can sleep or wake your device using a simple motion in front of it. A good way to impress your friends, I guess.
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.
Winterboard has been recently updated to work properly on all 64-bit Apple devices running iOS 7 such as iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display.

I like the dark one - and now I can have it on my iPhone since a few days ago a new tweak called Bloard has been released.
