SafariTabCount will bring back the much needed tab count to Safary

From time to time the lack of a function in every iOS 7 could get frustrating. For example why do you jailbreak your iPhone or any other iDevice? With all that innovation from Apple there are some important things that are missing. Like a file manager, theme manager, but there are also some simple things that are missing for example from stock apps. The following tweak comes as an inspiration from the competition, Android, and this tweak is not developed by Apple.

safaritabcount

This little tweak called SafariTabCount will add a simple but useful number from my point on the tabs icon that will show the number of open tabs in Safari.

You can find this for free in ModMyi repo in Cydia. Right after installation the tweak kicks into action. So there are no extra settings for this tweak. So what do you think, do you need this tweak?

Cydia tweaks that can optimize your Notification Center

intelliscreenx_ncWhen it was launched iOS 7 came with lots of improvements and cool new features, but still, with all those things it will not replace the need for tweaks or other non-official software packages. But to install this kind of packages you will need to jailbreak. Being a software distribution platform like App Store, Cydia does not have the same restrictions when it comes to publishing new applications, the chance of downloading a useless software package increases. But still it has a lot to offer. For example, today we are going to talk about apps and tweaks which are designed for Notification Center.
We will break the ice with IntelliScreen X where this tweak will add functionality to Notification Center and to your Lock Screen. You will see things like toggles or other gadgets that can even help you share on your social networks. We continue with Tap to widgets where by default will add a facebook, twitter, calendar, notes and reminder buttons in your Notification Center.
SBSettings beside the useful information that provides will help you access toggles like WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode and many more. If you don’t like SBSettings you can always try NCSettings which brings all the possible toggles to your NC. I like this tweak because you will not get a cluttered Notification Center instead you will scroll between toggles.kamera If you don’t like toggles and want to add some other functions I can suggest Kamera.
tap_to_widgetWith this tweak with the help of two buttons you can access the front or rear camera. But what if you want to listen to music and want to control it right from NC. Well NCMusicGestures does this job perfectly and even shares on Facebook or Twitter what you are listening. Switching between next or previous song is very easy, just like the title suggests it is a gesture tweak so swipe to left or to right to change song.
ncsettings
Even though my list of tweaks is short, these are the most downloaded and used tweaks when it comes to Notification Center. So remember if you want to customize your iPhone you need first to jailbreak then download cydia or get it via a jailbreaking tool, then after this all is simple.

Best Cydia Tweaks 2013 – Top 10

quasarConcept of devices not supporting themes, custom ringtones and tweaks started the jailbreak revolution. So with absinthe and other jailbreak tools you could easily take control of you iPhone, iPod or iPad. But this was not it, because in order to distribute the packages you would need a 3rd party distribution platform, so those cydia appeared. With cydia you could even manage your installed packages. First the only way you could get it was by a jailbreak tool, but now you can easily download cydia, there is even a deb version. Cydia is now housing a wide variety of packages from paid to free ones. But today the only thing that we are going to cover is tweaks. Even though they are free it’s hard to test them all and find the right one that suits you. This way I’m going to present my top 10 list of cydia tweaks.

Auxo

  1. safari_download_managerMy first tweak is one that copies the function of you uninstall apps from App Store, it’s called Cydelete beside the way of uninstalling apps from Manage section in Cydia you can long press an icon of an app installed from Cydia and wait for it to toggle then press the X button.
  2. Activator is good if you want to make a quick action using gestures. So if you want to launch an app using gestures, use activator. Toggle Wi-Fi, activator. I think you’ve got my idea.
  3. Auxo is a tweak that will update App Switcher. It brings thumbnail view of the screen in App Switcher, adds a wide variety of toggles that you can easily scroll between them, new music controls
  4. There is a similar gesture for this on iPad but on iPhone it’s missing. So in order to have a function that switches between apps by swiping from left to right or right to left Zephyr is the one you need.
  5. If you did not like the concept if Auxo I suggest SBSettings. This tweak will bring a small popup window with the most important toggles and information for your iDevice.
  6. We all have problems when it comes using FaceTime over 3G/4G or watching a video from internet in low quality. Well with My3G you can remove this nasty rule.
  7. Quasar is that thing that every iDevice lacks. Open apps in different windows. It’s pretty much like the desktop experience where you can do anything with the window of each running application.
  8. Early in this post we have mentioned themes, well Winterboard is a tweak that will help you change the looks of you user interface. Cydia is loaded with ready-made themes for WInterboard.
  9. MultiIconMover is that tweak that will help you move multiple icons.
  10. Safari download manager helps you download multiple files simultaneously also it can manage all your downloaded files.

In order to get some tweaks you will need to install the repo from where is it.
