Display Upcoming Calendar Events on Your iOS Lock Screen

Calendar for Lockscreen is a new jailbreak tweak that displays your upcoming calender events on your Lock screen. Unlike notifications, the events will not disappear after you unlock your device, and they will only be removed after they have expired.

The tweak even allows you to customize how your events will be displayed. You can go do this by navigating to Settings > Calendar for Lockscreen. From here you can choose how many events to display, how many days in advance they should display, color / size of text and so on. Calendar for Lockscreen also features the ability to swipe right on an event to open your Calendar app.

New Tweak Adds PS3 Dual Shock Support to iOS Devices

A new jailbreak tweak released to Cydia is going to cause iOS accessory makers some major headaches. As you probably already know, Apple added a MFi controller support in iOS 7. This allows developers to create third-party game controllers for the iPhone and iPad. A lot of controllers / gamepads have already been announced and released, but most of them have been met with lukewarm reviews and they can be expensive. But now iOS users with a jailbroken device can use a PlayStation 3 Dual Shock to play any game that features MFi support.

Controllers for All

The tweak you'll need is called Controllers for All, and it can be found in Cydia’s ModMyi repo. Once installed you will also need a utility called SixPair and your Mac or PC to pair your PS3 controller to your device (You can download SixPair here). Pairing your iOS device to your controller is as easy as connecting both devices to your Mac or PC and clicking a button. The link above gives instructions for using SixPair with Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. You will also have to open Control Center and disable your Bluetooth connection for the tweak to work.

Must Have iOS 6 Jailbreak Tweaks for the iPad and iPad mini: SwipeSelection

It's time to look at some must have iOS tweaks now that you've freed your iPad or iPad mini using the new evasi0n jailbreak tool. Our first tweak isn't a very flashy one, but it will make working or writing emails on your tablet so much easier you'll never want to go back to the old Apple way.

iPad Jailbreak Tweaks

SwipeSelection is based off a concept video created by YouTube user Daniel Hooper. The idea was to make editing text on your iOS device easier by replacing the old tapping method with a more precise finger drag to move the cursor. The video and jailbreak tweak were so popular iPad fans started a campaign to have Apple officially add it to its next iOS update, but unfortunately Apple did not listen. Someone even tried to recreate SwipeSelection by releasing an official app, but it was met with negative reviews since Apple’s TOS prevents access to the global keyboard.
