TweakWeek was launched on June 1st by popular jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich, who released a new iOS tweak everyday for one week. After that, popular developers from the jailbreak community each take a week of their own. TweakWeek is no easy task, as developers must do all of the coding for each tweak on the day of its release; the source code must be made open source, too. Just over two weeks into the project, we’ve already seen some quick, easy, and simple tweaks for iOS. Each tweak requires that you’re running iOS 4.0 or higher. Most tweaks that have been released so far can be found on the default BigBoss repository in Cydia.
UPDATE: To settle some of the confusion, the dates below are merely the release dates of each tweak. These tweaks will always be available on Cydia for free regardless of which day it is.
- June 1 — DietBar: shrinks the size of most in-app navigation bars
- June 2 — PagePusher: adds flip-style animations when navigating through pages, lists
- June 3 — SplitMail: split-style mail app on iPad in portrait mode
- June 4 — Read Later Action: submit articles to Instapaper via Action Menu
- June 5 — Running Indicator: apps that are running have glowing icons
- June 6 — SliderBar: quick scrolling in all table views
- June 7 — MathAlarm: your alarm wakes you to arithmetic
