If you have not heard of Synchronicity before, I would be very surprised. Synchronicity is one of those 3rd party tweaks that all users who have a jailbroken iDevice should have installed. However, if you have not heard of Synchronicity before, it is a tweak that allows you to use your iDevice while syncing with iTunes. This means you are free to make a call, play a game or check your RSS feeds; all while you are syncing through iTunes. The only thing that you cannot do while Synchronicity is enabled, is browse iPod.app/Music.app, because this can cause data corruption errors.
Now that you know a bit more about Synchronicity, it is time we tell you about a brand new update which was just released for this tweak. This update, which brings Synchronicity to version 2.0, makes Synchronicity faster, more responsive and adds a couple new enhancements to the overall feel of Synchronicity. One of these improvements has to do with how Synchronicity alerts you it is currently being used. You see previously, Synchronicity would display as a red, tethering-style bar over the iDevice’s status bar. Which obviously notified that a sync with iTunes was occurring, and removed that annoying “Sync in Progress” lock screen we all normally have to stare at while our iDevice syncs. In Synchronicity 2.0, that red tethering bar is replaced by a minimal, Greek “Sigma” icon in the status bar to indicate that an iTunes sync is occurring.
Besides the noticeable improvements with Synchronicity’s alert system, this new 2.0 update adds many improvements to speed and reliability. This update also fixes many bugs the were present in previous versions of Synchronicity.
Beside minor improvements to Synchronicity’s speed and reliability, version 2.0 adds support for the following langauges:
As you can clearly see Synchronicity 2.0 is a very noticeable update, that extends Synchronicity to make it an even better 3rd party modification to your iDevice. If you are interested in Synchronicity 2.0, it is available through the Cydia store for a price of $2! Let us know if you decide to try out Synchronicity 2.0, and if you do, tell us your thoughts on this update.
