Confirm2Proceed: Are you sure you want to continue?

Confirm2Proceed Featured

Have you ever encountered a time where you accidentally dial someone? Or send an accidental text? It could get pretty frustrating or embarrassing at times. We’ve all had this happen to us, we all know the feeling. Wether or not you are willing to admit it there is a way around this.

Confirm2Proceed by developer elias is planning to make those embarrassing moments disappear. With Confirm2Proceed, sending a text, making a phone call, composing an e-mail, etc. will now bring up an alert prompting for confirmation before continuing. Within the settings panel of the tweak you have options for various apps such as phone, messages, mail, Viber, even BBM. This is the biggest drawback in my opinion. The tweak has a limited selection of apps that currently support it (though the developer has promised more apps in the future).

PortraitLock: Lock rotation on a per-app basis

ios_7_photo_stream_landscape

One of the most frustrating things about the iPhone is the all-or-nothing portrait lock switch. This is especially critical to apps that are only enjoyable in landscape such as Netflix or YouTube. There has been tweaks that bypass this issue (LandscapeVideos being one). But there wasn’t really a tweak that allows you to choose which apps have the portrait lock.

Not until now. A new tweak, PortraitLock, has submerged on Cydia’s surfaces and it does just that. The settings panel of the tweak has a couple of options. The first being a kill switch. The second leads you to a list of applications. With a simple tap and check list you are able to tap on individual apps. Tapping the app will force it into portrait mode regardless of rotation lock.

Reddme: An iOS 7 inspired reddit client

Reddme Featured

There’s really only been one good reddit client on iOS, Alien Blue. It’s been the best for quite some time. The only thing it really lacks is in the design department. The app is in need of a major redesign. The major flaw with a lot of these reddit clients are that they just don’t offer enough options. Reddme tries to be a beautifully crafted app while withstanding power user features.

At first glance it looks underpowered. The app looks very simple, too simple. The front page shows 3-4 posts by default. Following several other social network app designs, a compose button is placed on the top right corner of the screen. Obviously bringing up the compose window. In terms of aesthetics it looks very modern. With white and turquoise dominating the app. The app also includes a built in dark mode. Which — in my opinion — doesn’t look that great.

How to get a system wide equalizer on iOS

iTunes Equalizer

Have you ever wanted to equalize the sounds on iOS? There are a few tweaks out there that do so. But are limited. Apple includes a 10-band equalizer on iTunes on the desktop. But this functionality is missing on iOS. There are preset EQ’s on iOS but those are never any good. Especially for an audiophile. Up until this point — on iOS — you were forced to use a third-party iOS application to achieve a custom equalizer. While for iTunes users with iTunes libraries this was perfect, for others it was a recipe for disaster. Spotify, Rdio, Beats Music, users etc. were out of luck. Even iTunes Match users. It’s simply not possible.

A new tweak — EqualizerEverywhere — allows you to have a 10-band system wide equalizer on iOS. Regardless of where you are, what application you’re in, or what kind of media file you are listening to, EqualizerEverywhere gets the job done. It will even equalize phone calls.

Interactive message notifications: iOS 8 notifications for iOS 7

Quick-Reply-Interactive-Notifications-iOS-8

Have any of you tried iOS 8 beta yet? If the answer to that question is no and you are still jailbroken, then why not try one of the main features iOS 8 beta offers. Developer Mohamed Marbouh “mimicked” iOS 8 new feature called Interactive notifications, which looks more like the tweak Auki if you were wondering. The only problem I find with this look-alike tweak is how one cannot reply from the lock screen, which is also one of the main functions of the new iOS “quick reply”.

Outcast: Black is the new sexy

IMG_4242

I have never, in my whole entire jailbreaking career seen a theme this sleek and sexy looking besides Elite 7 or Sep 7. Afterhours by theme creator Barsoverbeats and Fuel by Djetouch have one thing in common with Outcast; They are all the color black. What Afterhours and Fuel do not have is a special sleekness and a small touch of sexiness Outcast offers. Theme creator Darka5sa5in, created this beauty out of scratch and then remade it to whole new, dark but yet attractive version.
