Assistant Unrestrictor: Swap Between Siri and Voice Control
Assistant Unrestrictor is much like the assistant to Siri. It comes into play when Siri is unavailable.
We all know that Siri only works when internet is on. When internet is off, and you hold-on to the Home button in order to activate it, you will be met with a Siri not available! message, and prompting you with another message to Connect to the internet.
With Assistant Unrestrictor however, the Siri not available message will be replaced with the Voice Control prompt which was originally available in iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.
Voice Control allows you to speak, just like you would to Siri, but this time around, your voice commands should only be limited to what is available on the iPhone.
For example, Voice Control can be used to call names found in iPhone contacts.
IOS 6 Theme (IOS 7)
If you are one of those that are still nostalgic about the old look IOS 6 in your iPhone, then IOS 6 Theme is for you.
Once installed, IOS 6 Theme will be available and can be activated through Winterboard. Don’t worry if you do not have Winterboard already installed. Cydia will install it as soon as you install a compliant app i.e. IOS Theme.
Sicarius: Kill all Running Apps at Once
Sicarius is a jailbreak tweak that lets you close or kill apps in 3D mode. Double press the Home button to access open apps. Hold and drag the app to close, and Sicarius thins the app upwards as it closes it.
In addition, Sicarius tweak lets you close all running apps at once. This is useful when you have multiple open apps and find it irritating to close them one after another. To do this, double press the Home button and drag the home screen upwards.
The rest of the open apps will close as a result. This, unless you configured particular apps not to close, in Sicarius configuration settings.
Sicarius also makes it possible to kill the home screen, thereby restarting the Springboard.
Applocker: Set Up Password for Individual Apps
Applocker has been around for some time and there is no overstating its importance. The new version works well with IOS 7 and as before, allows you password lock any app or folder.
If you are the type that would want to leave your iPhone without a passcode, and would rather lock certain apps, then Applocker is the best tweak for you. You can lock, contacts, Notes or photos, and access to them can only be achieved after the preset password is input.

GuestMode: Setup iPhone Guest Account
GuestMode is a pay app that gives you peace of mind when you give out your iPhone to a friend or child.

The configuration menu gives you the options to customize which iPhone apps and tweaks can be used, allowing you to hide photos, messages e.t.c. from prying eyes.
