    I'm looking for a cyda tweak that only turns on my cellular data for an app when the app is actually open, then turns cellular data off when app is closed.

    I know under the normal iPhone setting I can go in and individually set each app cellular data on or off but that's not what I'm asking or wanting.

    So say it's set up like my normal cellular data options but when toggled on for instance Facebook, Facebook cellular data would be off, I then click the Facebook app, once app is open the cellular data is on, when I close the app data would be turned off.

    I know I still have to tackle the issue of app being in background till I completely close the app, but there's options out there already. I'm trying to cross one bridge at a time.

    Reason I'm so interested in it is because my iPhone 6 eats my data up. I've had every iPhone before from the original and never had this issue. I've seen where others reported as well. All this is besides the point tho cause I'm not looking for pointers on that, just want to know if the on/off data when app is open is something already out there or if I need to email a developer and see if an are interested in it.

    Thanks folks

    And also a no lock screen tweak.

    What I mean is I hit the home button or power button while phone is asleep and it goes straight to home screen.

    There is two tweaks on cydia that used to do this but neither work on ios8. They are called skiplock and nolockscreen. If push comes to shove I'll email those developers and see what's up

    You can set up Activator to do it. But the down side is that you will have to configure for all the apps you wish to do them for.
