[Cydia Stuff]: Pimp Out Safari, Part 1!

I have a ton of different tweaks on my iPhone which I use to enhance my Safari experience, and I don't know how I could live without them. Here, I'm going to showcase all of them.

This part will cover somethings you'll be able to visibly notice when Safari first starts.

First, here's what Safari looks like to me:

Some things you'll notice are that:

  • There's a loading bar now.
  • There's a download icon at the bottom.
  • There's also a magnifying glass icon at the bottom.
Tapping the download icon will show this:

This is Safari Download Manager. Essentially, it allows you to directly download files from the internet directly to your iPhone. Currently, SDM costs $5 on Cydia. Please take note that it does not provide a file manager, so you won't exactly be able to access the files you download.

Next, the loading bar. This is actually not much of a tweak, but a Winterboard Theme called Slim Safari. It's pretty simple and pretty useful.

Finally, the magnifying glass. Tapping this icon will show this:

This tweak called EasyFindOnPage lets you find items on the Safari page you have open. It costs $1, but is super useful.

That's all for now.

Part 2 is coming soon!
