The list of iOS 7 jailbreak apps and tweaks grows as the official iOS 7 Cydia app arrives with a new look and feel for users who took the plunge to jailbreak the iPhone and iPad running iOS 7.
While the list of iOS 7 jailbreak apps is still relatively small, especially for users with a device running a new Apple A7 processor. There is still much work to be one to deliver the iOS 7 Cydia apps and tweaks, but early reports indicate many developers are working on iOS 7 jailbreak app updates.
We already shared a guide to the iOS 7 jailbreak which walks users through the process. This first version of the iOS 7 jailbreak is a bit buggy, and we outline 5 reasons not to use the iOS 7 jailbreak, as well as 5 reasons to jailbreak iOS 7 which are important to read before taking the plunge.
The video below shows the new iOS 7 Cydia App Store complete with a new look that matches iOS 7 and a collection of handy features like the ability to swipe to go back, which give Cydia an iOS 7 feel. This is the official iOS 7 Cydia version as revealed in this tweet from Jay Freeman, the man who runs the Cydia app store.
This is a nice new look for the iOS 7 Cydia app store, and hopefully is a sign of things to come for iOS 7 jailbreak apps. The iOS 7 jailbreak release delivered a lot of drama that prompted some jailbreak developers to quit, but it appears many are still working on iOS 7 jailbreak app updates.
