How Have You Tweaked, Personalized, Customized, or Hacked Your iOS Device?

Last week, we asked you how you’ve tweaked your Android device, to make it all your own. Now, it is time for iOS. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, let us known in the comments how you’ve tweaked your device. Admittedly, that can be a bit harder to do on iOS than on Android, but we have some pretty clever readers.

Your tweaks could include how you’ve organized your folders, what apps you use to smooth over some iOS flaws, or more. It could even include jailbreaking or unlocking the device. My customizations use iOS in its native form. On my iPad, for example, I’ve used a combination of home screens and folders to make it a multi-user device, since I share it with my wife. The apps that don’t interest her, and that only I use, go in their own folders.

So, let’s hear it. Tell us all about your iOS setup in the comments below.

  1. I tweaked my iPhone into a drawer and got an Android. ;)

    • Heh. I did the same, actually, although I still use my iPad. The good thing is that I have a bit of free reign now to hack my old iPhone, since it won’t be as big a deal if I screw it up.
