The popular CallBar tweak has finally been updated to add full support for iOS 8 and iPhone 6. The update that is now available for download brings many new features to the useful hack. For those of you who don’t know, CallBar is a Cydia tweak that adds an interactive bar on top of your screen for ongoing calls. Using this bar you can perform a variety of functions that would normally require you to use the dedicated Phone application. When not in use you can simply swipe up to hide the bar and bring it back whenever you want.
Thanks to CallBar you can continue using different parts of iOS and if you want to perform any function related to the ongoing call or something related to the phone app you can simply pull down the bar. iOS 8 version brings integration with the Notification Center so you can just pull down on the callbar and check out your notifications. With this tweak you can view favorites, access recent call data, contacts, dialer and voicemail without even launching the dedicated Phone app.
During a call you can also perform all the usual functions that you can through the normal iOS call screen such as muting the call, accessing dialer, adding another person to the call, initiating Facetime and more. A cool function of this tweak allows your to record calls with tap of a button.
CallBar is an amazing tweak that is not only very useful but very well designed as well. You can get it from Cydia for $3.99 right now. If you already own the iOS 7 version then iOS 8 version is available as a free update to you.
