New SpotDefine tweak adds a dictionary to iOS 7 Spotlight


Spotlight comes with a lot of functionality, but personally, it’s still not powerful enough to be a feature that I use every single day. One feature that Apple has neglected to add is a dictionary, which would let users find the definitions to words by simply pulling down on the home screen and typing a search term as usual. Jailbreaks exist for a reason, though, and a new tweak has been released on Cydia called SpotDefine, which does just this. (more…)

SwipeDown lets you swipe down to kill apps in iOS 7 multitasking


With iOS 7 came a brand-new multitasking interface that looks a bit like that of a deprecated mobile OS we all know very well. Just because iOS 7 multitasking is very similar to that of WebOS, though, doesn’t make it perfect.

There are surely many enhancements and features that Apple may introduce in the future to make it faster and easier to use. With a jailbreak, though, we don’t have to wait on Apple. Currently, you can only remove an app from multitasking by swiping up, but a new tweak called SwipeDown lets you do just what it sounds like: swipe down to close apps. (more…)
