These days, everything is about jailbreaking. The world of Apple devices revolves around jailbreaking. However, the process has changed a lot over the years and the main reason to jailbreak these days, is to gain unlimited possibilities and new features, as well as to customize the look and fell of the iOS completely. Moreover, through jailbreaking, you can fix errors and problems while you gain a brand new device.
Here, I want to show you some interesting Cydia apps and tweaks that will turn out to be pretty useful once you install them on you brand new jailbreak device. As you already know, the iOS 7 came with a lot of changes and improvements, but users still needed to jailbreak their devices in order to enhance these features. Apple’s latest flagship was a debatable topic, and with good reason. The device brings significant improvements and additions.
In order for you to better understand the use of this stunning device. I want to show you a couple of Cydia tweaks that make use of its most significant feature: the fingerprint sensor found within the Home Button. As you may imagine, it can be used in order to use your fingerprint to open the device or other similar tasks. However, this is not all. With the right Cydia apps and tweaks, you can do much more.
Since I mentioned the fact that you can open or launch various apps and features with the help of the fingerprint sensor, let me begin my list with the BioLockdown tweak. Basically, this tweak allows you to use the TouchID sensor to lock apps, restrict settings and more. When enabled, a fingerprint is required in order to access various settings or to launch certain apps. In the same time, it is not that expensive, it is only $2, but you will see, that it is worth purchasing it.
Touchy is an awesome new tweak that allows users to assign specific apps to specific fingers using the Touch ID sensor. You can set up to five different apps to work with five different fingers in the settings panel. Since the application uses TouchID, you need to make sure to register the fingerprints first. Basically, the application creates shortcuts, which are triggered with the help of the famous fingerprint sensor.
Another interesting application that makes use of the iPhone 5S’s fingerprint sensor is the Virtual Home. This application allows you simply to touch the fingerprint sensor to return to the springboard as opposed to actually pressing down the home button. Now, with Virtual Home, you will not have to press on a physical button each time you want to return home. Only touch the TouchID and you will see the homescreen.
As you can see, these Cydia apps will definitely help you enhance and improve your iPhone 5S experience. While they are meant mostly for productivity and performance, Virtual Home, Touchy and BioLockdown can turn out to be quite effective, especially if you tend to use the TouchID quite often. There are to be found within Cydia Jailbreak Store, only after you perform jailbreak on your device.
