TimePasscode is an iOS 7 jailbreak tweak that allows you to automatically set your passcode based on the current time. It's definitely an interesting tweak that many have found useful, but recently, the developer decided to step it up with a pro version. TimePasscode Pro will give you a few more options, but are they worth $0.99? If you're not familiar with the original tweak, check out our recent coverage. The pro version of this tweak will allow you to offset the passcode from the current time, display the time on the passcode screen, and use 24 hour time format options. Here's a brief description of TimePasscode Pro:
A tweak that sets the current passcode to the current device's time. Other features include the ability to set an offset (positive or negative), and display the time on the passcode screen. For example, if the current time is 1:50, then your passcode would be set to be 0150. If you have a time offset of 15, then the passcode would be 0205. If the negative offset switch is enabled, then it will subtract minutes rather than add, making your passcode 0135. Military time is supported. The format of the passcode (12-hour vs 24 hour) is determined off of your device's Date & Time settings.Now that you know the difference between the two versions of TimePasscode, are the upgrades worth the price? I prefer to set my own passcode, but just like the App Store, Cydia has something for everyone. You can find TimePasscode Pro in the BigBoss repository for $0.99.
