    In the event that you want to make the iOS 7 Camera interface more minimalistic, there's a jailbreak tweak available for you.

    A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed MinimalCamera by iOS developer Dekesto is now available that will make all of the camera controls seemingly disappear from the interface, as shown above.

    While the controls, such as the shutter button, picture/video/panorama controls, and Camera Roll shortcut seem to disappear from the Interface, they're far from gone. The tweak hides them from the interface and replaces them with tap and swipe gestures.

    With the controls hidden, you can tap on the screen to take a picture or begin recording video, and you can swipe left or right to switch between picture mode, video recording mode, or panorama mode. You can tap and hold on the interface at any time to hide or show the default Camera controls.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand:

    The tweak is perfect for those of you that like the minimalistic interface, or just want to get rid of the extra clutter. It does require iOS 7 to be installed. If you would like to give it a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: MinimalCamera
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0.1-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6

    Developer: Dekesto

    This looks like a great idea, installed, but doesn't work for me as shown. I have enabled and ratio kept.

    It does NOT enable full screen on my IPhone 5, it does take away the options but keeps the screen the same
    size, just black at top and bottom without controls, no enlarged screen by eliminating those black bars.
