Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion has taken a lot from iOS, including full-screen apps. But are iOS apps really¬†full-screen? One jailbreak tweak to pose this question is ‘Monocle’, a package developed by Ryan Petrich (@rpetrich) that recently appeared in the Cydia Store.

Once downloaded and installed, ‘Monocle’ offers jailbreakers a true full-screen mode for their jailbroken iPhone, by offering users an easy means of hiding their smartphone’s status bar. The hidden status bar means users are granted more screen space, which can make quite the difference when surfing the Web, browsing through Twitter timelines or checking Facebook profiles.

You can configure ‘Monocle’ to activate through a shake of the iDevice, meaning you don’t even have to launch the Settings app in order to switch the feature on.

If you like the sound of this jailbreak tweak, head on over to the Cydia Store and download ‘Monocle’ now. Just be sure to add Ryan Petrich’s repository ( to your list of ‘Sources’ in the Cydia app before searching. Enjoy!
