Jailbreak tweaks tend to fall under one of two classifications. The very first category is for tweaks that make the iOS experience a nicer one to deal with via improved looks. Things like icon packs, themes for applications and personalized typefaces etc. fit squarely in this category, as you may well think of.

The various other group is for useful tweaks. Tweaks that change the way iOS jobs, commonly at a quite low degree. This can include tweaks like MyWi, MailEnhancer and other preferred tweaks that have the tendency to obtain a bunch of interest in the jailbreak neighborhood, specifically amongst the more technological people available.

There is, however, a third group that we’re specifically crazy about however sometimes acquires missed. It’s the group for tweaks that do splendid points yet also look excellent while they’re doing it. Auxo would sit the bill right here, and while iOS 7′′ s multitasking means Auxo isn’t really as important as it was a few months back, there’s little doubting its location in jailbreaking past.

That 3rd classification is also where we would certainly place the just launched tweak by designer Tyler Nettleton, called Swipey.

Available on Cydia right away from the BigBoss repo and valued at $ 1.99, Swipey both modifications the means folks will use their iOS devices and also looking beautiful while it functions its magic. Just what Swipey does could not be totally new, but it’s a new take on it.

Swipey, as you can see from the video clip which we have actually installed below, is a tweak that makes it possible to release applications straight from the iOS 7 lock screen. Swiping to open the device will take customers into a full-screen switcher-type user interface that could be swiped again to relocate to the next application. Introducing the required application is just an instance of stopping briefly on it rather of swiping, in which instance the application is offered the foreground and the phone is opened.

There are currently a lot of tweaks that enable the establishing of apps from the lock display, and some are great certainly. Nettleton’s take is a bit various to those though, and it’s excellent to see developers still functioning on new, and possibly better means of doing points that may or else be thought about to have been stitched up by others.


Readily available to download from the BigBoss repo, as we pointed out before, and is just suitable with gadgets running iOS 7. And yes, in case you’re asking yourself, the tweak works with 64-bit A7 gadgets as well. The tweak’s settings can be set up from the iOS Setups app.
