Theresanother iOS in town, hence there are more and more new Cydia apps and tweaks being released every day. Yes, there are jailbreaks for the newest iOS already and there are even more jailbreak apps and tweaks available for you! One of them is called WeeSpaces. If you already have iOS 5, you should have noticed already that one of the iOS 5s newest features is the slide-down notification tab. It kinda reminds us of the Androids notification tab, right? This is the space that WeeSpaces is going to use.
WeeSpaces is the newest multitasking app in Cydia. There are a couple of other multitasking apps but what makes this one unique is that it uses the newest notification tab of the iOS 5. It gives the user an overview of all the open apps on the notification tab which makes it easier for the user to see the apps that he has open. The WeeSpaces tweak has a lot of improvement to work on however. One of these is that WeeSpaces show the user the open apps by small thumbnails, these thumbnails however, are not the live status of the apps shown. It would be helpful if the thumbnails would show the current status of the app, wouldnt it? Aside from that, you can only see the open apps on your notification bar, but you can not do anything with them. You can not close them nor rearrange them. Having those functions would be a tad more helpful as well.
In any case, who are we to judge? Im sure were going to see more improvements on the WeeSpaces tweak in the future, but for now this version will do. Its free anyway! There are other multitasking apps available in Cydia. If you want to see them, jailbreak your iOS 5 to be able to access Cydia, and from there you could view them one by one. Have fun!
What is a Mobile Terminal? A mobile terminal is a console or an application that lets you access command line prompts and run utilities like Open SSH. It is very helpful whenever you need to perform operations on your gadget that needs these utilities and commands because you dont need to use a separate device to access them anymore. Theyre all on your gadget already. The sad thing though is that the only application on Cydia that lets you do just that, the MobileTerminal encountered constant crashing on the iOS 4, and the same thing still happens in the iOS 5. So how do you install and run the MobileTerminal on the iOS 4 or 5 successfully? Here are the steps that you have to do.
