My favorite iOS jailbreak tweaks

iPhone homescreen and second page

Around the start of 2014, I came across a jailbreak tweak that lets you add links to your reading list (Instapaper, Readability, etc.) from anywhere on your phone. In Safari, in Chrome, in Reddit apps. It worked like iOS 8 extensions, before they were a thing.

This week I'm on a holiday from client work. I'm working on Exist, but all of my normal client work time is going ...
