Best Cydia tweaks for social media apps

Nowadays, social media apps let us do it all — text, chat, meet friends, share information, photos, and much more. They have taken over the world. I believe, that every single one of you is using at least one social media app on your phone.

If you’re using these apps, do you feel that the native apps are good enough? I know many of you will answer “Nooo”. Some people want more additional features to enhance the experience, while others want to remove some stupid stuff within the apps, making them simpler and perform better.

Fortunately, if your device is jailbroken and you want to customize native apps, you can do it yourself. Here I’ve listed the most necessary and awesome jailbreak tweaks for each social media app. Let’s take a look at them and pick up the tweaks you need.

1. Facebook

Facebook is the hugest social network, and the app belongs to this company on iPhone, iPad is also one of the most used applications. But many users claim that some necessary features should be implemented on there, such as landscape mode, in-app messenger or video downloading…

Do you like these features on your iPhone? Well, many jailbreak tweaks for the Facebook app and the Messenger app out there will help you supercharge your experience by adding these features. You can check out the full post here. I’ve already compiled the complete list of Facebook tweaks inside that link so I won’t do it again in this post.
