The 20 Best iOS 8 Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks You Should Have in Your iDevice

As you may all know, we are all far into the jailbreak zone as far as iOS 8 is concerned. Since the release of iOS 8, two major jailbreak tools (both from Chinese teams) have been released late last year: Pangu and TaiG Jailbreak. Of course, a jailbreak means nothing if you don’t install jailbreak tweaks and apps. But what are the best iOS 8 Cydia tweaks to install on your iDevice? Today, we are going to help you out. Here are the best iOS 8 jailbreak apps and tweaks so far.

The 20 Best iOS 8 Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks You Should Have in Your iOS Device

Barrel

Barrel is a well-loved customization tweak that adds cool animations whenever you swipe the pages of your Home screen. This tweak looks and works great, definitely a personal favorite of mine and one of the first ones I install whenever I jailbreak.

F.lux

Can’t help bringing your iDevice with you in bed? Well, the blinding screen might be the reason why you can’t sleep properly at night. F.lux remedies that by adjusting the iPhone’s display based on the time of day. When it’s nighttime, F.lux adjusts the screen to a warmer color so it’s easier on the eyes. Once dawn comes, it returns the display to normal colors. This tweak is so good I have it on my desktop computer as well.
