    By tapping "Change Package Settings" when inside of any packages, you can turn a setting on that shows it in your "Changes" tab whenever there is an update. Never knew about until I read it on Reddit.

    Wow, I didn't know that either. Of course it makes sense now that you point it out, even though the langauge has been pretty clear all along*. This could have and will likely come in handy. :)

    *This is assuming the langauge has read the same for the past couple of years. ;)

    Yes Naps this is a great feature that you can pick and choose which apps you want to know get updates, such as Gridlock. I have it checked yes because I don't want to keep checking 2-3 times a day to see if it has finally been updated to work on ios 6.1. I have this feature set for 3-4 other apps as well and whenever they receive an update..... all is well!

    rgs3, every time I see one of your posts I misread your user name and start to think that my favorite quarterback has joined the forum. Damn. :)

    Cool. I've just put you on my "Never Ban" list. :D

    That's a joke, for the folks who are new here. ;)

    I knew it. I hit it one and read what it said.

    Can we please not have an ambiguous thread title? :rolleyes:

    I like Curiosa which put your updated apps/tweaks from Cydia right on your Notification screen. Although it only notifies you if you have them installed.

    Should it work no matter what tweaks you have installed? I wanted to get Aptdate to work but it doesn't. It only notifies me of updates available after I update and respring.

    Curiosa notifies me of all my tweaks so far. It just notified me of my Torch tweak update with no respringing.

    What repo do I need to add to see Curiosa? I searched the name and it doesn't show up.

    Is this safe? It says it's beta testing software only.
