What’s your favorite iOS 7 theme?

WinterboardThe release of iOS 7 has seemed to give a bit of fuel to the iOS theming community, with many designers releasing themes unlike any we’ve ever seen.

For those who don’t know, it’s a tweak made by Saurik himself that provides a framework for developing lock screen widgets in HTML and Cycript. It has been around since the early days of Cydia (as far back as iOS 2.2), but today, I’m the bearer of good news: Cydget has been updated to support iOS 7 and devices sporting Apple’s new 64-bit ARM processor.

New UniFaces jailbreak tweak brings Unicode faces to the iOS keyboard ( ◕ ◡ ◕ )

o5eQNog

There’s a wide variety of unicode faces that get tossed around the internet all the time, but sadly you can’t really type them if you’re using an iOS device. That is, you can’t use them unless you have a jailbreak. A new tweak called UniFaces was just released by a developer who goes by the name of seatanners, and brings some pre-typed Unicode faces to the iOS keyboard. (more…)
