It’s already that time of the week again, and that means we’re coming back at you with another jailbreak tweak and news-oriented roundup.
In this roundup, we showcase all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, January 11th to Sunday, January 17th. We’ll begin by kicking things off with a display of our favorite releases first, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Without any further delay, let’s get started:
Our favorite releases this week
DnDSwitch – FREE
DnDSwitch is a no-brainer jailbreak tweak that upgrades the functionality of your handset’s ringer/silent switch by turning it into a Do Not Disturb toggle switch.
We say no-brainer because it includes the original functionality all while keeping notifications from bothering you even when you’re using your device. Obviously, you could turn Do Not Disturb back off again with the flip of a switch when you’re ready.
You can learn more about DnDSwitch in our full review.
LottieNotifications – FREE
LottieNotifications is a new add-on for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that gives incoming notification banners user-configurable Lottie-style animations.
It joins a growing army of tweaks that enable Lottie-style animations on the platform, including LottieLockscreen and LottieStatusBar.
You can learn more about LottieNotifications and the things it can do for you in our full review.
SmartVolumeMixer2 – $3.49
Your handset sports a plethora of different volume levels, including one for your media playback, one for connected headphones, another for Siri, and several others. It can be challenging to keep track of them all, and sometimes you end up blowing up your eardrums over it.
SmartVolumeMixer2 offers a smart solution to the aforementioned issue by providing users with a customizable and intuitive interface for controlling all those different volume levels at a glance.
You can learn more about SmartVolumeMixer2, how it works, and where you can get it in our full review.
