Are you experiencing lags when you need to update your installed tweaks? Thank goodness, there’s a tweak for you to get you real-time updates anytime and anywhere.
Get the latest updates on Cydia with “Aptdate” jailbreak tweak by thekirklover on your iOS device. You’ll receive a Notification banner whenever an update occurs, so you won’t have to go to the repository to check the changes. This jailbreak tweak is highly recommended for users with jailbroken devices. Basically, the Aptdate checks for updates of stock repos every five hours, and it can be configured using the Settings app. It works in the background and alerts you with the packages.
We all know the functionality of the Notification Center since the debut of iOS 5. It’s not a surprise anymore that iOS developers can create some ideas on how to maximize this feature and make it more useful when it comes to jailbreaks.
As I have mentioned above, the tweak is configurable in the Settings app. Toggle on button, and it will start running in the background for alerts every five hours. Use the Notification settings’ page to customize the Cydia notifications that allow you to show the recent items. Set the tweak to show one, five or ten recent items.
The downside of this tweak is the possible reduced battery life as it runs in the background. The time interval is limited for five hours only.
If you don’t mind this small compromise and would want real-time updates, give it a shot and see if it goes well with you. To download the Aptdate, launch Cydia and tap Search. Type in, “Aptdate.” Once installed, it will require a respring of your iOS device.
Overall, I give this tweak a 4 stars rating. Aptdate is available on Cydia BigBoss repository for FREE.
Feel free to share your thoughts about the tweak.
