Cydia is the place where you will find great tweaks and apps for jailbroken devices. As more and more packages are released and Apple continues to update iOS it become increasingly difficult to images what developers will come up with next. Today we want to tell you about one of the latest packages to hit Cydia called FaceMail.
The FaceMail tweak is a combination of the native iOS Mail app and the official Facebook app from the App Store. As you probably already know, Facebook has recently given its iOS app a makeover to make it even faster. FaceMail doesn't bring you any massive functionality to the social network, instead what is does is put right a wrong that has probably not even been noticed by a lot of users, but severly annoys people who have come across it.
With Facebook, users can get email alerts when something happens on their account. When you click on the link in the email it opens up Mobile Safari and takes the user to the mobile Facebook website to sign in and see what the alert is all about. FaceMail changes this behaviour by creating a link between the Mail and Facebook apps meaning that when a link is tapped from an offical Facebook email account, it will open up in the installed Facebook app and take the user to the notifications section rather than trying to force a log in through Mobile Safari.
This may sound rather trivial but if you are an iOS user who has become frustrated with this you will be delighted with this new tweak. FaceMail is available free of charge from the BigBoss repository with no specific iOS version requirements being given. It does however require that you have the official Facebook app installed on your device.Read more...
