Do things with your iPhone you never thought you could
Cydia, the jailbroken alternative to Apple’s app store, is a treasure trove of neat tweaks and apps for iOS 7. With messengers, ad blockers and a bunch of fixes for the iPhones inadequacies, you will find plenty to entertain and aid you with these apps. Here’s five of the best.
A staple for geeks on any device, AdBlocker mimics the behaviour of similar software for desktop computers by stopping adverts being loaded by web browsers on iOS. Not only does this speed up the browser, it also reduces data usage.
iOS 7’s Control Centre was a feature ripe for exploitation on jailbroken devices, and developers have not disappointed. CCControls is one of a number of apps that do the job, allowing you to change themes, alter the lock screen, and fiddle with the phone’s toggles.
Anybody who has ever wanted to avoid calls from certain people will appreciate this next app, which makes up for the lack of such a service on iOS. Purporting to work on any iPhone model, the software allows you to both blacklist and whitelist contacts, manage several lists at once, and set up auto-reply texts.
