August 29, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0

Through many iOS releases, major or minor, Apple still hasn’t bothered to change its lockscreen interface. The design and its functionality remain the same even though the company did modernize it a little bit to live up with the design standards. Earlier this month, we saw a post on Jailbreak sub-Reddit about a redesigned lockscreen interface made by a former Apple employee. Of course, everyone has to love it and sure enough someone decided to come up with a jailbreak tweak that integrate these features into our iOS devices.

A recently released tweak called FutureLock is here to turn the concept into reality. With that being said, let’s dive into it and see what’s so special and cool about this package.

CameraTweak Adds Exciting Features To Stock Camera App

You should check out this cool jailbreak tweak that allows you to take photos with advanced features similar to a digital camera. Developer Samball’s CameraTweak gives us advanced camera options we can take wherever we go.

CameraTweak Cydia

The stock Camera app provides us quality photos, yet it lacks some features such as the timer and independent reticles for exposure and focus. However, with CameraTweak, you’ll enjoy additional features such as advanced mode, time lapse mode, countdown timer and composition overlays in the camera mode. On the other side, you can also use the advanced mode, custom frame rate, resolution, and aspect ratio for video recording.

Take note: The CameraTweak works best with iPhone devices. Make sure your device is jailbroken. As of this writing, there’s a tethered jailbreak version for iOS 6 A4 Devices.

Camera app options:

Advanced Mode 

The advanced mode is available both in Camera and Video recording. This mode allows users to swap out the combined exposure and focus reticles for two separate reticles. The other reticle can be locked independently by a tap and long hold.

Time Lapse Mode

The name speaks for itself. This mode allows users to take a series of shots over a specific time interval. You can configure the preset lapse between 1 to 60 seconds or 1 to 60 minutes.

Timer Mode

I wonder why the stock Camera app has no timer even the new line of models lack this feature. To access a countdown timer, you need to install a third party-app such as the Camera +. But with CameraTweak, the feature is already integrated in the Camera app. You can configure the time between 1 and 60 seconds.

Composition Overlays

The Composition Overlay feature has additional layouts aside from the stock 9 block grid. You can configure this option at the lower right side of the screen.

Video Options:

Custom Frame Rate

This feature is only available in Video mode. Users can set the frame rate between 1 and 60 frames per second.

 Resolution

You can set the resolution of the video according to your preference. High definition videos will require large space on your iOS device. The iPhone only support the 720p at its best.

  • Low (3G transfer)
  • Medium (wifi transfer)
  • 352×288, 648×480 (VGA)
  • 960×540, 1280×720 (720p HD)
  • 1920×1080 (full HD)

Overall, the CameraTweak is one of the best tweaks I found on Cydia. It’s perfect for photographers and enthusiasts. It’s available on Cydia for only $0.99.

The verdict: We give the CameraTweak a 5 star-rating.
