|Available In: Cydia||Price: Free|
I was surprised to open Cydia and see any update for Cydia itself! The update to version 1.0.2684-40 of Cydia does make some nice changes to the application.
The first change I noticed was that when you select an application in Cydia, there have been a few changes to the look of the package Details page. The first change you will notice is that the icon, title of the app and version of app are now at the top of the page. Below this, there is now a new option; Change Package Settings. This option allows you to turn on/off Show All Changes. It says that the Changes option (on the lower menu bar) will only show upgrades to installed packages however, you can turn on Show All Changes for any application that you do not have installed to see any changes made to it as well. The other new addition to the package details page is nice new icons next to each section! Which I think look great!!
The second major change I noticed is that in the Manage option (on the lower menu bar) the long awaited Storage option is now available! When selected, you will get information about your System storage and your Private storage. The System storage information will show you how much of your iPhone OS partition is Used and Free. The Private storage information will not only show you how much space you have left on this partition but, breaks it down so you can see the percentage of space things like Themes, iTunes, App Store, Photos are taking up.
I did not see the addition of the rumored App Rating ability…maybe in the next update!
Overall, I also noticed that Cydia seems to run much faster. I specifically noticed that it is much faster when loading the package detail pages. Below are some before and after screenshots as well as screenshots of the new Storage section.
Let me know in the comments if you noticed any other changes.
