Apple redesigned how the App Switcher looks like and act in iOS 7 with inspirations from certain classic jailbreak tweaks like CardSwitcher and the old boring bottom grey switcher has gone. But have you ever been bothered with iOS 7 for scrolling through all the way to the left and right to get to certain page in the App Switcher? Or have you been annoyed with the narrow iPhone screen that is only able to display a little bit more than one app card? Unfortunately it is not easy to go back to iOS 6 classic app switcher easily now.

GridSwitcher is new jailbreak tweak from tom-go that changes the stock iOS 7 horizontal card switcher view to a grid view. It has no option to configure. Once installed you are good to use.

Eventually I gave this a try after all the criticisms have settled.

Ayeris is a new Winterboard theme for iOS 7 created by well-known designer Surenix with a controversial price tag of $3.99. The word ayeris, which is pronounced as Iris, like the ring-shaped membrane in your eye or the Greek god of the rainbow, is about communicating the excellence of timeless design to and for the world, according to Surenix in the package description. This appears to be what he strives for by releasing this new theme since the existence of ayecon, his iOS 6 based theme.

It is never too late to introduce something great and legendary. A while ago I purchased and installed a tweak called iTouchSecure on my iPhone 5s, and it greatly improved my productivity and saved me a lot of time in entering lengthy strong passwords in various apps.

iTouchSecure is a jailbreak tweak which is developed by SpiritOfLogic, the same developer for the famous iRealSMS, PwnTunes and PhotoAlbums+. The tweak features at autofilling passwords everywhere in both iOS apps and Safari, authenticating with Touch ID for any Password entry by storing passwords encrypted in local keychain like Apple does.

There are lots of different tweaks like Badge Customizer and Boover that allow you customize how the app icons looks like and behave. But they are all global settings that make it all the same and look boring. There is a new tweak released today called ColorBadges from iOS developer David Goldman makes things more interesting and appealing.

ColorBadges is a brand new jailbreak tweak that modifies colors of your icon badges based on the color that the app icons have. There is no option to configure so once you installed the tweak you are good to go.

Preview: GuestMode Allows Limited Guest Access to Your iPhone

If you have kids or family members that share the usage of your iPhone, the very first concern is fear of getting your important or private stuff messed up or deleted. There are some security tweaks like AppLocker or BioProtect that can block apps or settings access with password or TouchID protections. But the key issue is the setting is global. It also locks you down from getting in protected areas even though you can unlock it. It is annoying and time consuming.

In Android Kitkat and Windows we know we can set multiuser or guest accesses. But what about iOS? Good news here is GuestMode, an upcoming jailbreak allows you to do so.

A while ago we introduced to you BioProtect which is the first app that offers apps lockdowns with Touch ID. But on Sunday evening, well known iOS hacker Ryan Petrich, released a tweak called

Being a minimalist I really like the Settings panel as well as the authentication dialogue. In Settings, you are able to toggle on and off with the kill switch. For restriction, you can add new restrictions on any apps, setting panes, and switches, and they are well categories in different pages. The only thing is you need to add it one by one. And if you don’t want it anymore, you can tap on the red icon on the left and tap delete at the right then it slides in.

BioProtect Locks your apps with Touch ID

January 9, 2014 — by Xin Chan0

For those who are aware of Cydia tweaks like Applocker and Lockdown Pro they all function very well with password to protect apps from malicious usages. And they also received updates for iOS 7 and especially Applocker gained Touch ID support. The only drawback is they offer traditional dialogue that prompts you to input password. Recently well-known developer Elias Limneos released a tweak called BioProtect and joined the game.

From the tweak’s name you can easily identify that BioProtect does something that uses biometric to offer protection. What it does is to lock and protect your apps from using with your registered Touch IDs. It will prompt you with a nicely designed dialogue indicating that you need to authenticate using your fingerprint before you are able to launch the app.
