DisturbMeLater: disable Do Not Disturb after a set period of time

DisturbMeLater 2

Do Not Disturb is a great feature in iOS, and it’s one that I use quite often. However, from time to time, I forget to disengage Do Not Disturb, and it causes me to miss texts, phone calls, etc. Yes, it’s a great feature, but it can be a little dangerous if you have the tendency to forget to turn it off, especially if you have it set to silence notifications even when the phone is unlocked.

DisturbMeLater is a newly released jailbreak tweak that can help alleviate this issue. It allows you to establish a time interval when Do Not Disturb will disable by itself with no user interaction. This differs from the schedule feature in Do Not Disturbs settings because you can set it on the fly directly from Control Center, which makes it much less tedious to use....

For those of you who can’t live without QuickType, there’s a brand new jailbreak tweak that may garner your interest. It’s called SystemWidePredictiveText, and it enables the iOS 8 QuickType feature in places where it’s not normally available.... Read the rest of this post here

Slingshot adds swiping between selfie and frontie and more

Slingshot 20 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 002)

Slingshot, Facebook’s weird ephemeral messaging app, is actually getting better and more useful with each update.

After releasing a major 2.0 version rebuilt from the ground up and enriched with such new features as private reactions, photo filters, drawings, emojis and notifications on a per-contact basis.

Today’s update keeps smoothing out the remaining few rough edges.

For instance, you can now switch smoothly between your iPhone’s front-facing FaceTime camera for ‘selfies’ and the iSight camera out the back for ‘fronties’ by swiping left and right.... Read the rest of this post here
