Almost every Apple user is tired of that old school Volume HUD which Apple hasn’t changed for years. It was only a matter of time that jailbreak developers took advantage of this and developed a tweak for something that Apple had certainly overlooked. SmartVolumeControl is such a jailbreak tweak that allows you to change and customize the Volume HUD of iOS.
SmartVolumeControl is the most advanced Volume Controller that you get for iOS at the moment and it allows you to change and customize the default iOS System’s Volume HUD to any style you want to. The tweak comes with 8 different custom styles from which you can choose and apply. Custom Styles include Android’s Nougat-Like HUD, YouTube-Like Volume and WhatsApp Status Volume and others.
The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings App. From there you can configure the following things:
- Enable or Disable the tweak
- Change the default volume steps
- Set the HUD auto to dismiss time
- Control the volume from your lock screen
- Customize the colors of the View Styles
- Set the position of the View Styles
- Add shadow to View Styles
- Set the volume level with your touches (forget about pressing volume up/down)
- and much more.
All the Custom Styles that are included with this tweak are much better looking than that of the original iOS one. For all of those users who care about the aesthetics of their device very much, this is a must-have tweak as it really brings a modern look to iOS.
All the Custom Styles integrate with the interface of iOS in a really good manner and it doesn’t look weird at all.
If you are interested in the idea of this tweak then you can get this tweak on your device too. SmartVolumeControl can be downloaded and installed from Cydia’s BigBoss Repo. It is available for $1.99 and is compatible with iOS 7, iOS 8, iOS 9 and iOS 10 Jailbroken devices including iPhones, iPods, and iPads.
