DismissMyKeyboard allows you to quickly hide the iPhone’s keyboard

DismissMyKeyboard is a recently released jailbreak tweak for jailbroken iPhones that allows you to easily dismiss the software keyboard. While the iPad already benefits from such a feature due to the device’s larger area of real estate, the iPhone’s keyboard has no room for a dedicated dismiss keyboard button like you see on its larger brethren.

DismissMyKeyboard solves this issue by allowing you to perform a swipe gesture right on the keyboard in order to dismiss it. Take a look at our video walkthrough inside to see how it functions.

Once the tweak is installed, simply swipe on the space bar towards the Return button to successfully dismiss the keyboard. There are no options or anything else to configure to get it working, just install it and that’s it.

Available free of charge via Cydia’s BigBoss repo, DismissMyKeyboard is a great way to recover the space taken up by the iPhone’s software keyboard. Let me know what you think about it in the comment section below.

    Some websites and apps are poorly built. Lots of times the keyboard is stuck on the screen with no easy way to dismiss it. This tweak is a wonder in those ocasions.

    pull to dismiss is better in my opinion. ive had it forever. it dismisses the keyboard by scrolling

    • iiku

      I like this better, sometimes I want to scroll and not dismiss the keyboard.

    Nice, but this is my favorite. Pull to Dismiss http://www.idownloadblog.com/2012/01/02/pull-to-dismiss/

    Pretty neat tweak. Lets just hope developers bring amazing hacks that remind us why we should jailbreak iOS 6.

    I think using Notes was a bad example as you can hit the done button at the top right to dismiss the keyboard much faster and less complicated than this tweak. I also don’t see anywhere else it would be useful, only place that was a problem was in the messages app but pull down to dismiss was added to iOS already so I literally see no use for this tweak.

      Complaining gets you nowhere.

    Nice to read
    But cant do anything about it.

  • nima

    Or you can just press the done button?

      Only problem with that is the context-sensitive button often functions like return. You could accidentally advance a page.
