PersonalAssistant Is The Swiss Army Knife Of Lock Screen Jailbreak Tweaks

A new jailbreak tweak, PersonalAssistant, brings a whole new way to view and interact with information to iOS, whether that be the weather, notifications or system information.

The tweak, which its developer claims is essentially seven jailbreak tweaks in one, is available to download from Cydia and costs $4.99.


Right from the off, PersonalAssistant is designed with customization in mind, so much so that the tweak can be invoked from a variety of different places. Our favorite is the Lock Screen, giving PersonalAssistant the chance to replace the boring clock and notification view that we have endured for years. Here, PersonalAssistant shines, and we heartily recommend checking that particular placement out.

When installed and configured to run from wherever you choose, PersonalAssistant will set about sharing a variety of bits of information spanning battery information, weather forecasts, notifications, favorite and recently used apps as well as upcoming reminders, amongst others, and all of them are displayed in a way that not only looks great but also manages to get the required information across without cluttering the view or making the data incomprehensive – no mean feat on an iPhone screen.


When it comes to configuration, there is plenty to be going at with PersonalAssistant. Each aspect of the tweak can be configured individually, meaning an almost infinite array of possibilities are at hand and no two setups are likely to be alike as a result. If you’re the kind of person that likes to tweak and change settings in an attempt to find the most optimal configuration, then this is the tweak for you. Just make sure you’ve got plenty of time to spare!


PersonalAssistant is the kind of tweak that could make someone jailbreak just to try it out, and we haven’t come across one of those for a good while. If you’re already jailbroken and have a spare $5, then this is something that you really do need to check out.

The tweak is compatible with both iOS 9 and iOS 8, though some features seem to be restricted to the latest jailbreakable OS.
