The so-called ‘walled garden’ of iOS is hardly renowned for its customizability, but thanks to the freedom brought about by a jailbreak, the look and feel of the Apple mobile OS can be morphed and manipulated in all manner of ways.
A new Cydia entry by the name of Accentify is one such tweak, sneaking into the iOS API and delivering universal changes to the entire, predominantly off-blue color scheme. If you’ve grown somewhat bored with the rather dull, uninspiring appearance of your iOS device, Accentify could be just the lick of paint needed to liven things up.
One you install the Accentify tweak onto your device, you must take a trip over the Settings app to configure it to your requirements.
VoIP is quickly making the same kind of waves on mobile as it has done over the past decade at desktop level in providing a cheap way for folks to communicate in real time.
Calling long distances worldwide has long since been a monopoly, but thanks to services like Skype, we no longer have to pay a huge premium to hear the sound of another’s voice from anywhere in the world.
Facebook is currently dabbling in this technology, as is clear from the rollout of the VoIP feature within Facebook Messenger for iOS, but if your area has not yet been supported officially yet you wish to unlock and use the calling feature, there’s jailbreak tweak for that! Details, as usual, after the jump.
SBSettings is, in my opinion, one of the best jailbreak tweaks on offer over at the Cydia Store.
Through different revisions of iOS and on numerous devices, it has always been the very first tweak I have installed following a jailbreak, and when I am lucky enough to have it running on a jailbroken device, I’d say it saves me an average of ten minutes a day. Dragi, a new tweak over at the BigBoss repository, takes the power of SBSettings and its various toggles to the next level by allowing you to use the lock screen’s slider to trigger custom actions.
