CallActivator is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to quickly make Calls, send SMS or emails and visit your favorite websites from anywhere in the iOS using Activator.
CallActivator basically adds custom actions to trigger a quick access menu to make calls, send SMS or emails and visit your favorite websites to Activator – the jailbreak tweak that allows you to trigger various actions from anywhere in the iOS using gestures.
After CallActivator is installed, you can configure the actions such as double tapping the status bar, triple tapping the Home button, etc. to trigger the quick access menu from anywhere in the iOS.
As you can see below, you can then tap on the contact to send an email, SMS, make a call or tap on the shortcut to visit your favorite website.
You can currently add up to 3 contacts or websites to the quick access menu. It would have been nice if the developer allowed users to add more than just 3 contacts or websites to the quick access menu and make the quick access menu scrollable.
Though not very polished, CallActivator is a nifty little jailbreak tweak that is available in Cydia for $0.99.
