iOS Jailbreak Tweaks
Release Dates: August 2018 - 2021
iPhones and the software that runs on them are generally thought to be pretty secure, but there is a well established group of people who are dedicated to jailbreaking and modifying iPhones. On jailbroken phones, there is a custom store added that allows
you to download packages that change the way the OS runs that you normally don't have access to.
After being annoyed that I didn't have more control around certain aspects of how my phone worked, I became interested in creating custom open source jailbreak packages, and published them to the official jailbreak store, all of which
now have thousands of downloads.
(Pictured) NotiBlock is a tweak I made that adds a custom page in your phone settings app that allows you much more strict control over push notifications. It allows you to block or mute push notifications based on a combination of filters, including:
the app that sent it, the notification content, and the notification day/time.
This lets me do things like automatically mute work emails on weekends, schedule specific times only certain people can reach me, and block notifications
from apps which might send annoying notifications or ads. This tweak was also written about and praised by iDownloadBlog, a well known apple and jailbreak news website.
Search for Clubhouse
This is a tweak I wrote that adds functionality to official Clubhouse app. Clubhouse is an app that lets you join voice chats with people all over the world. Unfortunately though, by default the app shows you a huge list of all rooms with no way to filter
them. This tweak injects into the app and adds a search bar to the top, allowing you to search for voice chats or events by specific topics and names.
Push For Apollo
Reddit is a online forumn for people to talk about any topic. The official Reddit app works ok, but many people prefer to use other third party Reddit clients. One downside of this though is that only Reddit's apps officially support push notifications
because they don't provide an API for this to the public. This tweak is one I made that allows you to install both the official Reddit app, and a third party client. Then when the official Reddit app gets a push notification, this tweak swaps
some values around, so it becomes a notification from your third party app.
TapTap to Skip
Many people including myself really enjoying the YouTube app feature where you can double tap on the left or right side of your screen while playing a video to skip forward or backward. I really wanted this to work in other apps, but most didn't support
it. This caused me to write a tweak which added the double tap to skip, as well as being able to play/pause by force touching the screen to many apps including Netflix, Prime Video, CrunchyRoll, and HBO-Go.
