If you're a regular reader of Jaxov, you'll know we love jailbreak apps and tweaks, especially if they're highly functional and really improves the user experience. Ever since it was introduced in iOS 5, the Notification Center has become a primary target for creators of jailbreak apps and tweaks. There's certainly no shortage of tweaks and widgets that enhances the functionality of the Notification Center. Today, we have two featured Notification Center tweaks.
Two new tweaks meant for the Notification Center are available in Cydia and they'e made by the same developer, rvirajm. These new Notification Center tweaks are called TorchNC and Instasnap.
TorchNC is a follow-up to another tweak called Torch. TorchNC is a free jailbreak tweak enabling the user to activate the LED Flash of the iPhone to serve as a handy flashlight. As you may know, there are tons of apps available in the App Store that works similarly to TorchNC, but can they be accessed in the Notification Center? TorchNC provides the convenience of being able to access your LED flashlight right at your device's Notification Center.
After you've installed this Cydia tweak, you can activate it by navigating to iOS Settings. At the Notification Center section, enable TorchNC and it should appear on your iPhone's Notification Center. TorchNC is available for free in Cydia via the ModMyi repository. This tweak requires iOS 5 in minimum and needless to say, a LED flash on your device.
InstaSnap is another jailbreak tweak adding another functionality to your iOS Notification Center. However, this one functions quite different from TorchNC and acts as a shortcut to your Instagram camera. This is quite useful if you're someone who’s an Instagram junkie and you need to quickly access it, without digging through your app library in the Springboard.
InstaSnap is available in Cydia through the ModMyi repo and can be activated by navigating to your Notification Center settings and enabling the tweak. This is yet another free Cydia tweak, so feel free to give it a try. Obviously, you'll need to have Instagram installed on your iDevice before you can utilize it.
You'll need to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch before you can download and install TorchNC and InstaSnap.
