Phone++ now available for iOS 9, supercharges phone app

Apple's stock calling app is pretty good application but it doesn't have much cool and awesome features to make calling much easier than before. Here comes a very popular jailbreak tweak called Phone++.

A new way to connect with your contacts
When you use the basic Phone app on your iPhone, you can typically get in touch with them in various ways, such as by calling them, placing a FaceTime call, starting an iMessage conversation with them, and even emailing them. The only thing you have to live with is you have to physically open their contact card and then scroll around to find the contact information you want to use.

Phone++ tries to make things a little easier by bringing new swipe gestures to the Phone app to make contacting your contacts in various ways quicker and easier. Even more, it integrates with various third-party services, such as Skype and WhatsApp.

The tweak accomplishes this by letting you swipe left or right on specific contacts or recent calls throughout the Phone app. This reveals an onset of buttons that provide different options:
This tweak cleans it all up and puts it into a nice and sexy swipe gesture to make accessibility easier.

The tweak is fully customizable, so you can actually modify the way it looks. Here, we have a different skin applied, and the screenshot also shows the shortcuts to third-party clients like Skype and WhatsApp in addition to stock ones.
Configuring Phone++ tweak: 

Here, you can enable or disable the tweak’s features for various tabs in the Phone app, including Favorites, Recents, and even your Contacts. You’ll also find options for configuring appearance, swipe configurations, and gesture configurations.
From the appearance pane, you can change the way the buttons look. This includes choosing between round or rectangular icons, having a border or not, and even minimalizing the entire interface.

If you’re interested in trying Phone++, you can download it on your jailbroken device from Cydia’s BigBoss repository right now for $4.99.
