Looking for some ways to supercharge your Camera app? These are the best Camera tweaks we found on Cydia for your jailbroken iOS 9 devices.
There are thousands of applications out there on the App Store that iPhone and iPad users can use to replace their stock Camera app. However, through personal experience, I still believe that the built-in Camera app is still the best because it is easy to use, taken photos or videos will go directly to your Photo Gallery, no ads, or and it give you some of the top filters.
Instead of installing iOS Camera replacement apps like VSCO Cam, and Camera+, I usually prefer the enhancements method. What that means is I go on Cydia and install jailbreak tweaks that could add more features into the current stock Camera application. This way, I can still use my favorite Camera app while more functionality are being added without downloading any third-party apps.
With that being said, I want to share with you guys some of the best Cydia tweaks for iPhone/iPad Camera app. These tweaks work great for any devices running from iOS 8.4 – 9.
QuickShoot Pro iOS 8
Have you ever run into a problem where you missed a great shot just because your Camera app takes forever to load up? Well, if that usually happen to you, QuickShoot Pro for iOS 8 can certainly help. With this tweak, you can easily take a photo or record a video right from the home screen. All you have to do is tap the Camera icon and choose whether you want to capture an image or video.
You can download QuickShoot Pro from the BigBoss repo.
Apple still needs to put a lot of work to improve their Camera app for the iPad. While we wait for new features from them, why not install CameraTweak HD for now. This tweak is designed specifically for iPad users who believe that there is room for improvements.
CameraTweak HD provides features give you a better way to adjust the focus and exposure views, composition overlay, timer mode, and much more. As for the Video options, there will be settings for frame and rate, snapshot while recording, and better resolution.
Users can purchase this package from the BigBoss repo for just $0.99. It’s compatible with the latest iOS version on the iPad.
Many iPhone users are not happy with a number of filters that they’re given. No worries, folk. The new Effects+ tweak will add 25 more effects to your stock Camera app and 8 of these are adapted from Mac’s Photo Booth. Furthermore, all of these new filters will also be included into your editing tool, which means you can use them for existence photos.
Furthermore, Effects+ tweak is free and is compatible with iOS 8+. You can download it from Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
Snapchat users may be familiar of how to switch between front and back camera easily without pressing on any button. FlipSwipe takes this concept and add that to your Camera app. This tweak makes it easier to flip between front / back camera by adding double tapping and swipe gestures. This means you no longer have to tap on the switch icon and just double tapping onto the screen, or the option you chose from the Settings.app.
Feel free to give them a try by going to the default BigBoss repo on Cydia. Let me know what I’ve missed and how was your experience with these packages.
