The jailbreak community is always looking to improve upon and add to their existing functionality of stock apps such as Camera, podcasts and Reminders. You can?t ignore that tweaks add options to stock apps that may have never been introduced otherwise.
For adding firepower to the stock Reminders app, the Cydia Store has received CallReminders, a new jailbreak app that allows you to make reminders with calling information of a contact and also embed them. This allows you to make calls without exiting the reminders app and opening up the phone book separately.
After downloading and installing the tweak, a new menu is going to be created in the stock Settings app. There are no technical options to configure, and only a simple field is added by the name ‘Delimiter’.
This field can be used to enter a character/symbol that you want to use to separate the name of a particular contact from the rest of the information of the reminder. You’re going to see quotation marks under Delimiter by default, and anything you write under the quotation marks will appear is the name of the contact.
When you select an entry using the Reminders app that features a delimiter, there will be a dialog box popping up, giving you the option to make a call to that contact.
The tweak, however, faces limitation if you have more than one contact with the same name as it doesn’t separately lists who’s who. Apart from this limitation, the functionality is simple.
CallReminders is a free of charge download and is available at the Cydia Store. You can find it through the BigBoss repository. It works on iOS 5 and above.
