Navigate Back With A Swipe Gesture On Your iOS Device With ‘SwipeBack’ [Cydia]

A new Cydia tweak called SwipeBack has just been released by famous iOS developer, Ryan Petrich. The tweak which is currently in beta, brings a gesture based alternative to the default “back” button on jailbroken iOS devices which lets users go back one step within an app using a single left-to-right swipe. To make SwipeBack work with @chpwn‘s Zephyr tweak, which allows gesture based switching between apps, you will need to use two fingers swipe gesture for app switching.

  • difficult to use if you have a case on that wraps around the face of screen. swipe detection needs to detect swipe originating a little ways from VERY edge. otherwise i like.

    where can i post give my feedback to the dev.

    anyone else agree? Or am i just “challenged”?
