The latest iOS version, that is iOS 8.1.3, kills the TaiG Jailbreak used for jailbreaking iOS 8.1.2. This is well known to all jailbreakers by now, but the good thing is that we have been getting new and exciting best cydia tweaks for iOS 8.1.2 and below (including iOS 8.X and iOS 8.1, iOS 8.1.1). These tweaks are handy on all the iOS using devices, namely iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Some of these tweaks bring iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus exclusive functionality to the older devices like iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s and also the lesser cofigured iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2.
Some pretty hot stuff has been happening this month in the jailbreak community and tweaks have been filling up Cydia from left, right and center. However the flip side to this is the fact that not every user can try out and test some of the paid tweaks as well as free ones without priorly knowing about their performance. So, here I have made a list of all the Best Cydia Tweaks for iOS 8.1.2 TaiG Jailbreak after some thorough testing. I have even mentioned the repo that each of these tweaks is available in and also their price in Cydia.
Top 5 Best Cydia Tweaks for iOS 8.1.2, iOS 8.1.1, iOS 8.1 TaiG jailbreak
AFVideo (BigBoss repo – Free)
This free Cydia tweak brings the AutoFocus feature for video recording to your Camera app in iOS 8. AutoFocus for video is a default feature in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus Camera. But it is not available in iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and all lower iOS devices. So, AFVideo tweak is a welcome addition to the native camera app of these devices. For those who do not know what auto focus is, it is a function of Camera while recording videos or taking photos where the focus in the frame shifts from one subject to another subject according to your choice.
Anchor (BigBoss repo – $ 1.99)
Using anchor cydia tweak, you can place the apps or icons present on your home screen wherever you want without following any particular order. It is, in a way, similar to GridLock Cydia tweak in iOS 7. You can set preferences of this tweak in the Settings app. There you can enable or disable this tweak as well as reset all the icons on home screen at once.
SBRotator for iOS 8 (BigBoss repo – $ 2.99)
Using SBRotator for iOS 8 you can rotate the lock screen and home screen of your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch to an extent of 360 degrees. That basically means you can rotate them in any direction you like. Even the dock rotates to the side of the screen. Using the settings for this tweak you can make exceptions for some apps that natively do not rotate. This gives an awesome user experience and although it is a bit on the costly side it is worth its price.
Harbor (BigBoss repo – $ 2.99)
This is one more costly Cydia tweak with gauranteed performance and awesomeness. Harbor cydia tweak brings the OS X Yosemite style Dock to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Using this tweak you can add any number of icons or apps to your dock. While scrolling through the dock each of the icon is highlighted with a wave like movement following your finger as it scrolls. To notify pending notifications from any app, the icon of that app bounces in the dock, clearly indicating that it has some news. A little black mark can also be seen below the icon of the app which has pending notifications for you.
DimMe (BigBoss repo – $ 1)
Using DimMe cydia tweak you can control the brightness of your device’s screen. You can control when to dim the display and after how long to dim the display. You can set the time limit in the tweak. You also get the option of disabling the DimMe tweak whenever you are using AC power.
AppButton (BigBoss repo – $ 1.49)
AppButton cydia tweak, as the name suggests, creates a virtual button on the side of your device screen which you can access while using any app in your iPhone, iPad or iPod. When you tap this button once you can go back to the last open app. When you hold and slide on this button you can view all the recently opened apps lined up in the swipe you created. This acts as an app switcher and can be used with a single finger on the screen. Unlike other major app switchers, this tweak is simple to use and operate. You can activate this tweak using the Activator cydia tweak or also in the settings of this tweak.
Those are all the best tweaks available this season.You may have noticed that all these tweaks are part of the BigBoss repo. One of them is free and the others are paid ones. But I personally assure you that these useful tweaks are definitely worth your iOS time. Thanks and keep coming back to cydiaos.com for more updates.
