Top iPhone Tweaks: FullForce for Phone Expands Apps

The iPhone 5 brought with it extra screen real estate, and Apple left it up to developers to optimize their apps to take advantage of the added space. Although many apps have been designed with the larger iPhone 5 display in mind, there are still some that have fallen through the cracks. Now with a jailbroken iPhone 5 and the FullForce for Phone tweak, you can stretch or expand these apps.

This means no more letterbox bars on the top and bottom of your iPhone 5 screen. FullForce knows which apps are not optimized to fill the screen, and will ask you what action to take the first time you run an app. Settings -> FullForce includes a list of apps and the behavior you want to take place when filling the iPhone 5 display.

Top iPhone Tweaks: Mail More Photos

Sometimes the best tweaks are simple. Mail More Photos does only one thing, has no settings, and can be installed on your jailbroken iOS device free of charge. Sharing with the Photos app is great, except for the built-in limitations.

Ask anyone who emails themselves a lot of photos, or even bloggers who regularly take screen captures on their iOS device. Apple limits the number of photos that can be emailed to five. Mail More Photos removes this limitation, freeing up the Photos app to email more images at once.

More iPhone Tweaks: 3G Unrestrictor

When you're not within range of a Wi-Fi network, there are some things your iPhone won't let happen. For example, Apple will only allow downloads of apps larger than 50 MB over Wi-Fi. 3G Unrestrictor is a tweak designed to remove these restrictions on what you can and can't do with the cellular data plan for which you're already paying handsomely.

FaceTime calls over LTE? No problem no matter who your carrier is when 3G Unrestrictor is installed. Your device must be jailbroken but once you have the tweak, FaceTime, iCloud, and almost all third-party apps won't know the difference whether you're connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network for data.

More iPhone Tweaks: CleverPin

Wouldn't it be great if your iPhone was smart enough not to bother you with a passcode when you're home? Well now with a jailbroken iOS device and the CleverPin tweak, you can specify which Wi-Fi networks are safe. When your device is within range of these networks, it turns off the passcode automatically.

iOS tweak CleverPin

This means as soon as you leave one of the safe Wi-Fi networks on the list, your passcode will be re-enabled according to the Settings. For example, if your passcode is set to trigger immediately, then as soon as you're out of range of the safe Wi-Fi network the passcode will be enabled. But you won't have to bother entering the passcode as long as you're connected to one of the networks in the list.
