Covert Brings Private Browsing to Safari [Cydia]

Chpwn, developer of popular tools such as Infinifolders, Infiniboard and Infinidock, has submitted a new tweak to Cydia called “Covert” which will enable iPhone users to activate the Private Browsing mode while using Safari.

The tweak, which will be available for free, is very simple: once you tap on the tabs button in the toolbar you’ll see a new “Private Browsing” button between “New Page” and “Done” that will enable you to surf the web without leaving any data in your history. Once you activate private browsing Safari’s UI will turn grey to show that private mode is enabled.

Covert should be available any moment now for free in Big Boss repository.
