CallPlus Tweak Improves The Phone app In iOS 10

Those who have jailbroken devices can now improve the Phone app in iOS 10 with a new jailbreak tweak installed. Known as CallPlus this Cydia release to enhance your Phone app setting bringing even more features than you’re probably accustomed to out of the box.

With this tweak installed you'll get such features:

  • DialLocker : the tweak creates a new page on the Lock Screen with a dialer that allows you to easily dial contacts directly from there.
  • Switcher Call lets you add favorite contacts in the Switcher.
  • Colored Logs this feature colors your recent tab logs into three colors. 
  • Call Protection allows you to protect the phone button when you press call you need to input your fingerprint in order to be allowed to call that user.
  • Call Options when you press a contact in the recent tab it asks whether you want to text or call that user. If you choose text it will automatically launch the message app to that person's conversation without leaving the Phone app. On the other hand, if you press call you need to input your fingerprint in order to call.

So if you want to try CallPlus tweak then you can download it from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for just $1.50.

After installation the tweak will add a preference pane to the Settings app, from where you can start to improve the Phone app in iOS 10 using tweak's settings:

Note that you should hit “Save” buttons, that are located at the bottom of every preference pane anytime you make changes to the preferences. This saves your changes, letting the tweak work how you want it to.

Personally I like CallPlus tweak as I think the Phone app on my jailbroken iPhone has always lacked some essential features, and this tweak brings some useful options that can be handy for me.
