    When I was JB'd on iOS 5, I had a tweak that put the date next to the clock. The amount of available ram was also shown, but I'm not sure this was done with the same tweak, and I'm not particularly interested in this. Now that I'm JB'd on iOS 7, I'd like to have the date shown again, but I don't recall the tweak.

    I've tried the tweak DateCarrier, but it doesn't always show the correct date.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    StatusModifier does that. It's a free package you can get from the MMI repo. Unfortunately SBSettings hasn't been updated for iOS 7 support, so you can't display your date, time and/or RAM on the statusBar like you used to.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I've installed StatusModifier and it accomplishes my needs. I appreciate the help.

    You could also take a look at the tweak "Cloaky" ($1.00, USD). With it, you can add the date to be right next to the time. You also can modify other elements of your status bar (i.e remove the carrier name, the battery percentage or icon (or both), WiFi indicator, etc.). You can also modify the Control Center, the pop-up menu (what shows up in the pop-up when you press and hold) and the activity buttons (when you press an arrow to send, share or "open in" such as in the Photo app).

    It's a pretty robust tweak for an inexpensive price and I can testify it works fine on an iPad Air (and an iPhone 5). Just so's you have another option...

    Or you could put the calendar app icon on your dock, it shows the date :)

    Ah, but you can't see it when you're in an app... ;)
