I hope many of you know already about the CydiaBulletinNotification Center which will work in the same way as new iOS 5 notification center and and will give you notification about the updates on the installed Cydia tweaks on your Jailbroken iPhone, ipad or ipod touch. Recently the famous developer/hacker Ryan Petrich has tweeted about a new screenshot telling about his upcoming CydiaBulletinNotification Center Widget. The release of this new widget is expected any time in coming days and we hope we will be enjoying the benefits.
What the Cydia Bulletin Notification Center widget will do is to provide alerts to you of updates to installed Cydia tweaks on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad exactly through the Notification Center. After installing this widget you will not need to periodically launch Cydia and check for updates on installed jailbroken apps etc. instead you will be notified automatically when new Cydia tweak updates are available right from the Notification Center.
Speak and tweet. Now you can use a new Cydia tweak for jailbroken iPhone 4S that is called Sireet. You can use Siri to tweet through a free Cydia tweak that has been released recently. Only speak whatever you want to tweet and Sireet will translate your spoken words into text and post it using your twitter account.
You can go to Cydia and search for Sireet Cydia tweak on iPhone 4S, you will need to visit ModMyi repo through Cydia and download and install the Sireet.
It is required for Sireet to work that you have configured Twitter through Settings app on your iPhone 4S, and then open Siri to give a try to Sireet.
