Snapchat has become one of the most loved social network applications on the iPhone and iPad. Users get to send instant messaging, photos & videos to their friends, see live stories, and discover the latest headlines from CNN to Comedy Central.
Recently, they also introduce brand new animated filters that increase engagements and make it even better to snap. Just like its competitors, Instagram, and Twitter, Snapchat comes with limitations and sometimes unnecessary features.
For those of you who has a jailbroken device, it’s possible to remove these limitations on Snapchat as well as adding more functionality into the app. In this post, we will take a look at some of the best Snapchat tweaks that are available to download on Cydia right now.
AppPlus for Snapchat (Compatible with iOS 9)
UnlimApps, the company behind many other popular tweaks like Facebook Downgrader, just release their new Snapchat tweak called AppPlus for Snapchat. This package was formerly known as Snapchat+ and is now out of beta.

Phantom for Snapchat
This is the biggest guy in the Snapchat tweak industry. I have to give props to CokePokes, the creator of this tweak, for consistently pushing out updates for every time Snapchat app get updated.
Phantom for Snapchat brings features that are impossible to get on non-jailbroken devices. Similar to AppPlus, users can disable replay & screenshot alerts, remove typing status, sending photos and videos from your Camera Roll, and the rest you can explore it on your own.
You can freely adjust the tweak right inside the official Snapchat application via Settings tab. The overall features of Phantom for Snapchat is just amazing especially when CokePokes always keep his user up-to-date and continuously add more features into the tweak.
Update #1: CokePokes just submitted the latest version of Phantom for Snapchat with iOS 9 compatibility to the BigBoss repo. If you can’t wait until then, feel free to add his beta repo: cokepokes.github.io
- iOS9 compatibility
- Snapchat v184.108.40.206 crash fixes
- Ability to add music to uploaded videos
- Small bug fixes
But wait, there is more…
One thing that everyone hated about Snapchat is that it only allows you to write enough words that fit on one line per snap. Sometimes you can’t even tell your friends what’s even going on or describe to them what the picture is all about.
But here is the good news for jailbreakers, from now on you can write as much texts as you want on Snapchat photos using a tweak called SnapMoreText.
With this jailbreak tweak, there is no limits on how many words you can type in, if you run out of space, the text will continue to a new row.
You can now download SnapMoreText for free from the BigBoss repo on Cydia.
As mentioned earlier, Snapchat just put out paid lenses on their app. But if you install this tweak it will allow you to get all the premium/paid lenses for free. Not just one or two but all of it. The option can be enabled in the Settings page.
This is a well developed lite app, and the features of the app work by just one tap.
Sometimes the discovery feature in Snapchat could be extremely annoying. And if you click by mistake, it’ll consume some amount of data which goes to waste. NoDiscoverInStories is a tweak that will enable the option to disable the entire Discover section from Snapchat.
Furthermore, Snapchat users can also remove the Live Stories on their app. You can download this tweak for free from the BigBoss repo.
It sucks to use your Snapchat app on older iOS devices like the iPhone 4s which doesn’t have support for Snapchat lenses and filter. Don’t worry, as soon as you download the SCLenses4All tweak from Cydia, everything will be solved.
This is a tweak for Snapcat which brings lenses feature to older iPhone and iPad generations. This is a simple tweak and can be enabled with a single tap in the settings!
