Sometimes, the smallest jailbreak tweaks are the ones that make the biggest impression.
For me, that tweak is DirectionBar, the teensiest of jailbreak tweaks that does just one thing: puts a tiny arrow in your iPhone’s statusbar, which always, always, always points true north.
It doesn’t sound like much, but as a guy who is constantly walking or biking somewhere new, it’s a really fantastic time saver.
You know those hoary old men who always know which direction they are faced in based upon arcane methods of measurement like the direction that moss is growing, or the way a loon is flying overhead?
This jailbreak tweak will make you feel like that. Any time you pull your iPhone out of your pocket, you can tell which direction you’re facing, without launching any app. It even works on the launch screen.
It’s dorky, it’s free, and it’s really, really cool. Give DirectionBar a try today. You can download it for free on Cydia from the ModMyI repo.
