Locus Tweak Helps You Save Battery Life With Location Services

Posted by · 11994 views · Translate
Locus is a new tweak for jailbroken iOS 8 devices that lets you whitelist location services on an app-by-app basis. Locus lets you fine-tune location services to only work within selected apps, when notification center is open, or when the device is locked.

At first, Locus may seem just like a stock iOS 8 feature; however, Locus only turns on location services when your whitelisted app has been opened. Then, when the app is closed, location services are turned off, and ultimately, battery life is saved. In iOS 8, some apps let you restrict location services to "While Using App," but many devs have yet to include this feature.

For instance, if you keep always keep location services off, but want one app, such as Apple Maps to use your location, then this tweak would let you to do just that. Locus also has a toggle for notification center so that certain widgets that use your location (such as Weather), will still work.

Locus is available for free in Cydia from the BigBoss Cydia Repository.

Beware of application. I decided to uninstall it after trying it and it completely messes up location services daemon. It remained off and grayed out on every possible switch. I tried even restarting the service from a terminal window and it didn't work I had to restore my iPad and jailbreak it again. App needs a lot of fixing
