LetMeSwitch Cydia Tweak: Enjoy Ultra-Convenient Keyboard Switching on iPhone

Apple’s stock keyboard may be good, but it’s not as user-friendly and feature-rich as some of the best third-party keyboard apps. Whether it’s the ability to let you type fast or the option to spice up your messaging experience with a great many funny emojis, GIFs and more, the custom keyboard apps are a real deal on iOS devices.

Unfortunately, it’s a bit complicated to switch between your favorite keyboards while using third party keyboards on iPhone. As for instance, if you are using any custom keyboard and decide to change to another one, you will only be able to jump to the next keyboard instead of the new one you wish to use. It’s probably one of the reasons why some folks don’t enjoy custom keyboard apps on their device so much, do they?

LetMeSwitch Cydia Tweak

Delen for Tweetbot Cydia Tweak: Send Images via Direct Message in Tweetbot

Twitter is a popular micro-blogging app which lets you remain in sync with what’s happening around the world. Despite being a fabulous app, it lacks quite a few user-friendly features like the option to mute tweets individually. That’s why; a lot of Twitter users go for third party Twitter clients to enhance its functionality.

Tweetbot 4, with several highly impressive features such as mute tweets by users, is one of the most appreciated third-party Twitter clients. Despite being heavily priced ($9.99), one feature that it lacks is the ability to let users send photos via Direction Message.

Delen Cydia Tweak

Direct Message is very significant as it allows users to communicate with their friends or followers easily. Personally, I use DM a lot to send message to a number of followers. On numerous occasions, I have to send photos with DM while communicating with my developer friends.

Delen for Tweetbot Cydia Tweak

For all those Tweetbot 4 users who have been waiting for the option to send photos in Direct Message, there is a new jailbreak tweak Delen for Tweetbot. The tweak allows you to send DM in an intuitive manner; as if it were a native feature of the Tweeter client.

The Intuitive Feel

Whenever I think of trying any tweak, I look at two important aspects-functionality and UI. It has scored very well on the both the aspects.

The tweak adds a camera button to the left of the text. Simply tap on the camera icon; you will get three options in the pop-up menu.

  • Send the last photo you captured on your iPhone.
  • Capture a photo to send.
  • Select an existing photo from your Camera Roll to send.

Tap on your preferred option and go ahead with the process as usual. Isn’t it like a native feature of the Tweeter client?

Bottom Line

If you are a Tweetbot 4 user and feel the need to have the option to send a photo in DM, Delen for Tweetbot is a readymade solution. As for functionality, it’s up to the task.

How to Search for Word Definition Right from iPhone Spotlight

There are several occasions when I come across a new word. To get the meaning of the word, I have to use third party dictionary apps on my iPhone. Though I don’t find it too difficult to define any complicated word using the available means, it would be quite helpful if there was a better solution.

Hopefully, Apple adds a dedicated dictionary app for its iOS devices sooner than later. I’m sure there would be a lot of iPhone users who would be waiting for a stock dictionary app on their device.

SearchDefine Cydia Tweak

SearchDefine Cydia Tweak: Search Definition for Word Right from the Spotlight on iPhone or iPad

There is an all new jailbreak tweak called SearchDefine that allows you to search for word directly from the Spotlight. Once you have installed this handy tweak, you will no longer have to go through the lengthy process to define any word.

iOS users have to take the help of Siri, web browsers or third party apps to quickly get the meaning of any difficult word. While Siri can help you define a word instantly, it has a lot of limitations like it doesn’t understand particular accents and you can’t use it while sitting in a class or meeting.

Web browsers do provide an instant meaning of any word. You need to have internet connection on your device and carry out a bit lengthy process. Third party apps are a good solution, but you need to install them on your device.

But, none of those mentioned above ways are more convenient than the one that this tweak offers.

How Does The Tweak Work?

After you have installed this tweak on your iPhone, swipe down from the middle of the Home screen of your device to bring up Spotlight. Type the word which you want to define in the text field. A dictionary section will appear on the screen with the definition of the word.

The jailbreak tweak uses the built-in iOS dictionary based on New Oxford American Dictionary.

Conclusion

This Cydia tweak deserves to be given a chance on your iOS device if you are looking for a quick solution to define any complicated word. Given the simple yet but handy functionality, it will live up to your both billing and expectation.

SearchDefine is available for $0.99 from BigBoss repo.
