Oneko jailbreak tweak adds a cat to your screen that follows your taps

Occasionally, we get a fun jailbreak tweak that doesn’t necessarily make your iPhone or iPad do anything useful, but instead complements the user experience with some sort of fun aesthetics or behavior that you would never have on a stock device.

We think that a new and free jailbreak tweak release called Oneko by iOS developer pixelomer is one such release, as this tweak adds a small cat to your screen that follows your finger as you tap places.

Another interesting aspect of Oneko is that after periods of inactivity, the cat will appear to take a nap. Small z’s appear over the cat when it’s napping, and after it wakes up, it walks to wherever your tap. The cat will even sit and look at you for periods of time.

Does everyone need the Oneko jailbreak tweak? Probably not, but it’s a fun way to play around with your jailbreak and show people some of the hidden pleasures of jailbreaking. After all, who else do you know that has a wandering cat on their iPhone’s screen?

These effects take place all over SpringBoard, including the Home Screen, the Lock Screen, Control Center, Notification Center, and inside of apps. There isn’t currently a way to exclude any of these interfaces from being included in the tweak’s functionality, so we can see where it could potentially be a little annoying in certain games or apps.

Oneko doesn’t have any options to configure, so the experience is pretty much what we described it to be in a nutshell. There aren’t any additional hidden Easter Eggs or functionalities that we can describe, and we aren’t sure at this time whether the developer plans to add any more.

Perhaps customizing the cat’s color would be an interesting way to add some user customization? Or maybe to choose between a lazy cat that takes its time or a jittery cat that sprints to your last tapped location. These are just ideas, of course.

If you’re interested in giving Oneko a try, then you can download it for free from the Chariz repository via your favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken devices on iOS & iPadOS 15, 16, and 17.
