iOS 7 Cydia Jailbreak Tweaks 2014: New Apps Arrive This Week Including Springtomize 3, Quick Contacts, Folder Enhancer And More
It's been another insanely busy week in the iOS 7 jailbreak community with 30+ new tweaks added to the Cydia apps store January 21–27, not to mention updates to many tweaks which were popular in iOS 6. I've listed below a few new jailbreak tweaks that stood out to me this week. Check them out below.
Though folders in iOS 7 saw a beneficial update, still for those who like to maximize the usefulness of their folders, this iOS 7 jailbreak tweak does the trick. Folder Enhancer offers features such as Folder in Folders along with a variety of set-up options including 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 layouts. In addition, users can disable animations when opening and closing folders, set the option to close folders when launching an app and more. The tweak is just 99 cents in the Big Boss repo. Give it a try.
This new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak is one pretty much everyone who loves theming and modding their iDevice has been waiting for. Though with the release there were many reports of bugs, as the tweak continues to be updated it's one most folks will like to have as a staple in their iOS jailbreak tweak list. Or those who aren't familiar with Springtomize, it is basically the customization tweak you'll ever need. It features tons of options for customization. To learn about all the different features, take a look at the thorough review above completed by Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog. In addition, here is some information offered by the creator on Reddit, for those experiencing any issues with the tweak.
exKey by Richard Cheng
OK, so until @Sentry_NC releases AltKeyboard2 this tweak has basically become a lifesaver for me. exKey is a jailbreak tweak compatible with iOS 5, 6 and 7 and basically adds the extra number keys row on the top of the keyboard. While adding additional math function keys to the top of the numbers keyboard. One thing I hate is having to switchback an forth on a keyboard when typing in a password that includes numbers and letters. ExKey has kinda taken care of some of that annoyance. The jailbreak tweak is compatible with all iPhoens running iOS 7 including the iPhone s5S but is currently incompatible with iPads and iPad Mini. This tweak is .99 and available on the Cydia jailbreak app store in the BigBoss repo. Give it a go.
ScreenShotShare Sheet by Ethan Gill and Ethan Vaughn
ScreenshotShareSheet iOS 7 jailbreak tweak allows you to share a screenshot immediately after taking it by displaying a share sheet similar to the options in Photos.app. However, it goes beyond this, easily allowing you to open the screenshot in any app capable of handling image files. (iFile, Photoshop, Dropbox, etc.) In addition, ScreenshotShareSheet contains a setting to block screenshots from being uploaded to Photo Stream. This new tweak is 99 cents in the Big Boss repo on the Cydia app store.
QuickContacts by DarkMalloc
QuickContacts is a new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak I've been looking forward to as it adds a favorite contacts menu to your Spotlight. Just slide down on your home screen, just like you're going to Spotlight, and you'll have immediate access to your favorite contacts. There is nothing to configure to get the tweak to work and it's a super convenient way to access your favorite contacts. If you need to use spotlight while the tweak is installed, it's still available you just need to swipe across the new contacts menu and spotlight is restored. This tweak is compatible with all iPhones and iPods running iOS 7 but not yet available for iPad. The tweak is live now on the Cydia jailbreak app store for just 1.99 in the Big Boss repo. Give it a try!
AppBox by Jacob Caraballo
Ok, so I have to be honest, I've been a huge fan of DarkMalloc's AppTray app as it allows you to open apps from your lockscreen via the notification center, but this new tweak is pretty interesting. With AppBox, it allows you to program a set of tweak that are available from the lockscreen when you swipe like you are preparing to unlock. Once you see the tweaks you have the option to tap once to launch or if you hold down on the tweak icon, you get some useful functions. For example press and hold on the twitter icon and a pop-up appears to submit a new tweet, or, if it's email, you can begin to type a new email. This adds just a but more functionality to the tweak and makes it worth giving a try. This tweak is .99 in the Cydia app store via the BigBoss Repo give it a try.
Coono colorizes notifications in the same hue as the dominant color of the notifications' icon. This feature expands over banners, lockscreen notifications and the headers in the NotificationCenter. Users can fine tune the colors for yourself by adjusting transparency and saturation. A bunch of options for the lockscreen background behind the notifications are in the package as well, like removing blur, changing the tinting and other adjustments. The tweak is $1.50 in the Big Boss repo on the Cydia jailbreak app store. These tweak is compatible with most iOS 7 devices thought iPhone 4 and iPads may experience some problems with functionality, and there is a known conflict with SubtleLock which the developer is currently working on to fix.
SMS Stats 2 By Callum Ryan
This is a data tracking tweak which some may find useful. SMS Stats 2 for iOS 7 tweaks the messages app to include useful statistics like the total number of SMS and iMessages sent, from the current or previous month, as well as statistics for individual conversations.
The tweak is compatible with all devices running the iOS 7 evasi0n7 jailbreak including iPads and the iPhone 5S.The tweak is free and available now on the Cydia jailbreak app store under the Big Boss repo.

This new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak may be something fun for music junkies as it allows users to press and hold on any song that they are playing in the native iOS 7 music player to activate a new screen which shows you a picture of the album and a bunch of additional information about the song you are playing including last time you played it, how long the song it, who that band is, how many times you've ever played it etc. The tweak is live on the Cydia jailbreak app store for .99 cents in the Big Boss repo.
