Cydia tweak: Give the iOS volume HUD a boost with HUDSpeed

July 17, 2014

HUDSpeed, a brand new jailbreak tweak, allows users to make one simple change to Apple’s iOS: speed up the fade-out effect employed by the volume HUD.

You can pick up the package free of charge on the Cydia Store, and it’s created by the same developer behind HandsFree – a smart jailbreak tweak we told you about earlier this week.

Once downloaded and installed, HUDSpeed adds a new preferences pane to the Settings app, and here users can enable or disable the package outright. More importantly, though, this same preferences pane also includes a slider bar, and this bar allows users to precisely set how long the volume HUD interface remains on-screen after one of the volume keys has been pressed.

If you feel that the volume HUD remains on-screen too long, HUDSpeed is a package worth downloading. As mentioned, you can pick it up free of charge on the Cydia Store.

HandsFree, on the other hand, provides jailbreakers with a smart “hands free” solution. We explained recently:

Once activated, the $0.99 package indeed uses the iPhone’s built-in proximity sensor to allow jailbreakers to answer incoming calls by waving at their smartphone’s screen.

The developer promises that this feature will not drain your battery, and adds that HandsFree is also designed not to mistakingly auto-answer a call when an iPhone is taken out of its owner’s pocket.

You can download HandsFree for $0.99 on the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for iOS 7.
