If you’ve got a jailbroken iOS handset at your disposal, then don’t waste any time – open your preferred package manager and refresh your sources. Upon doing so, you must find a curious new jailbreak tweak called Arc by iOS developer Muirey03 in your Changes list.
Arc may be a beautiful new extension for pwned handsets that brings your favorite actions and apps right to your fingertips from anywhere in iOS. As depicted within the screenshot examples above, the tweak is sort of literally arc-shaped, and this makes it comfortable to use with one hand.
Arc, which is compatible with jailbreak iOS 13, 12 devices, will be invoked by merely pulling up from the corner of your handset’s display. you’ll choose whether it appears on the left or right side, and as you would possibly come to expect, the gesture respects these settings (if you chose the left side, then you’d swipe on the left, so on…)
As for what Arc can do, it can behave like an app launcher and supply fast access to your favorite toggles. Arc can even mimic hardware button functions and take actions that aren’t available as center shortcuts easier to access.
Once installed, Arc adds a preference pane to the Settings app where users can configure the tweak to suit their needs:
Here, you can:
- Configure the buttons you wish within the Arc interface:
- App Switcher shortcut
- Configurable app shortcut
- Control Center shortcut
- Home screen shortcut
- Lock device shortcut
- Mute device shortcut
- Notification Center shortcut
- Play/Pause music shortcut
- Return to previous app shortcut
- Screenshot shortcut
- Siri shortcut
- Choose the well-liked button style:
- Choose to position:
- Bottom left
- Bottom right
- Top left
- Top right
- Configure drag distance value with a slider
- Configure drag area width value with a slider
- Make Arc translucent
- Enable just for the Lock screen
The shortcut configuration page looks something like this:
Apart from looking absolutely beautiful, Arc is an intelligently functional tweak that augments the usability of your iPhone. Those inquisitive about giving the tweak a try can buy it at once for just $0.99 from the Dynastic Repo repository via their preferred package manager.
