As the iOS 7 jailbreak has been available for a while now, and the jailbreak developers are working very hard to constantly update and release new Cydia tweaks that are compatible with iOS 7, you must be eager to find out which apps are considered to be the most essential for you.
It is hard to choose from all the amazing applications offered by Cydia, in order to create a short list, but with a little research it can be done. However, besides the Cydia tweaks presented below, there are many more that are considered must-have Cydia tweaks for iOS 7 and you have the possibility to use as many as you desire, as soon as you jailbreak your device and download Cydia.
All these being said, let’s begin with the list for the best iOS7 Cydia tweaks in 2014.
The Must-Have Cydia Tweaks Compatible with iOS 7
1. Virtual Home
This is the first of the Cydia Tweaks that is considered a must-have as it allows the user to simulate a Home button press by just tapping on the Home button using the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Why do you want it? Well, clicking the Home button hundreds of times per day might be extremely annoying for many of you, and this app seems to be the perfect way to substitute that action. However, if you are used to communicate with Siri often, there is a problem with Virtual Home since the tweak does not activate Siri.
The second place in the list of must have Cydia tweaks is occupied by a very useful app for those who are easily annoyed by notifications dropping down from the top and blocking the navigation bar in apps. This problem is perfectly solved by TinyBar. Once you downloaded this tweak, only the status bar at the top to display notifications will be used.
As all smartphone owners worry about their gadgets’ battery life, an app that aids iOS users to save the battery of their devices cannot be left out of the list. Therefore, the third app presented in the list of greatest Cydia tweaks compatible with iOS7 is BatterySafe. The application actually allows users to choose which features get auto-switched to off when the battery runs low. Therefore, it is your choice if you want to lower the brightness of the display or to turn off Bluetooth or WiFi.
Another app that made the list of best Cydia Tweaks for iOS7 is FolderCloser, a tweak firstly created for iOS7, but recently updated so it can be used by the iOS7 owners, as well. This is one of the Cydia Tweaks created for those who are annoyed by folders staying open after you launch and close an application. FolderCloser is not a complicated app but it is very handy as it closes the opened folder automatically, so when you close an app you won’t be taken back to the folder the app belongs to.
All of you must be familiars with the Cydia tweaks that block the extremely disturbing ads as they are not new to the third part store. However, AdBlocker is the most popular of the useful Cydia tweaks for blocking ads, and it has been updated for iOS7. This jailbreak tweak will get rid of all the irritating ads as it blocks, not only all those from mobile web browsers, but also the apps which contain adds. The only bad news that comes with this tweak is that it does not seem to be able to block iAds or AdMob. However, for those who are interested in blocking these, Cydia tweaks offers AdBlockerNetwork, a free app that will allow you to stop AdMob and iAds.
6. Controllers for All
