Move the Volume HUD to iOS Status Bar

Looking for a new way to display the volume level on iOS? The default heads-up display (HUD) pops up right in the middle of the screen every time the volume level is adjusted. Now thanks to developer Alan Yip, there's a good looking tweak that moves the volume indicator to the status bar.

Once installed, tapping the volume up or down buttons will no longer block the center of the display. The volume HUD appears right in the status bar. When an app is in full screen mode, the status bar will even slide down as the volume is being changed, then slide back up out of the way.

Options under the settings include a switch to enable or disable the tweak, and two different styles. Currently circles or squares can be chosen as the volume indicator units on the status bar HUD. No respring is required to change options with the tweak, simply configure for a fresh look and avoid the old volume HUD moving forward.

StatusHUD is available on Cydia from the BigBoss repo for $0.99. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.x with evasi0n. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
