Your Quarterly Jailbreak Roundup, July 2013

Your Quarterly Jailbreak Roundup, July 2013

We come across a lot of awesome jailbreak tweaks and apps for the iPhone throughout the year. We can’t talk about all of them all the time. So, with that in mind, here are our favourites from the last few months.

First off, you’ll need to jailbreak your phone to use these tweaks. If you’re new to jailbreaking, be sure to check out our last roundup as well as our favourite jailbreak tweaks for iOS 6. Once you’re caught up, it’s time to check out all the new stuff.

Velox Performs Awesome Actions Directly from the Home Screen

Velox is a tweak for the iPhone that allows you to swipe an icon to reveal more information. For example, if you swipe the Messages app when you have a notification, you can instantly respond directly from that screen, or if you swipe the Calculator you get access to the calculator. It’s handy enough that we walked you through some of our favourite extra features. If you’re looking for a completely different way to interact with your iPhone’s home screen, Velox is well worth the $US1.99 download.

NCEnough Shows Only the Amount of Notification Center that Matters

For whatever reason, the iOS Notification Center pulls down to cover the entire screen by default. In most cases, this really isn’t necessary. NCEnough is a tweak that changes Notification Center’s behaviour so it only pulls down as far as it needs to in order to display the content on the screen.
