PullAll adds pull to refresh to every WebView

By , Apr 25, 2013

PullAll

PullAll is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to add the same pull to refresh functions from the stock Mail app to any WebView. This means that you can add pull to refresh to any apps that use WebView, including Safari, Twitter, Reeder, and more.

Along with PullAll’s functionality, the animation, too, is pulled directly from the Mail app. PullAll can also be customized to your liking by means of a handy preference pane. Check inside for a few more details as to how it’s all put together…

PullAll 01
PullAll plays nice with Reeder’s WebView

As mentioned, and as you can see form the screenshot above, PullAll allows you to use pull to refresh in any app using WebView. The screenshot above is from Reeder, a popular RSS client. Reeder includes a WebView for viewing RSS items in an in-app browser. A simple pull to refresh will perform a refresh on the browser view.

As you may have already guessed, the actual pull to refresh icon can be customized with different colors. The preference panel features RGB sliders to create a limitless amount of colors. Along with that, the settings include options for retaining or discarding the “Pull to Refresh” text, and the ability to exclude specific apps from using PullAll.

All in all, I find that this is a handy tweak to have. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this will add pull to refresh to every app you use, though. Again, PullAll will only work for apps that feature a WebView.

If you want to try PullAll, then scoot over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be downloaded for $1.00. Let me know what you think about it in the comment section below.

    I still don’t see the point if you either have to tap the status bar to get back to the top or scroll back up to pull to refresh.

      It’s a more natural gesture for refreshing on a touch screen device.

    Great post! Don’t really need it for Safari since the refresh button is right on top of the page, but its ok, I don’t really need most of the tweaks on my iPhone.

      Thanks.

        I actually purchased the PullAll tweak and I’m happy to say its much easier to just pull to refresh than to hit the refresh button.

    “Pull to refresh Safari” is Free in Cydia, and I guess this will be used 99% in safari, so… You must decide if you want to waste ur money….

      So browsers like Chrome doesn’t use the same WebView?

    Not worth a dollar in my opinion. But a great useful tweak nonetheless.

    Instagram does have same function as Mail native :)

  • Joe Benning

    I need a “Pull Wiener” tweak…

  • inf3rn0

    Whats with every tweak, regardless of its functionality being paid nowadays? I understand that devs need to earn some money, but charging 99c for a single function is ridiculous.

    This is a great piece, thanks for the heads up Jeff. It’s a little too pricey for me, for the functionality, however I certainly can’t knock it. It does make touch screen devices more intuitive and certainly cooler, and ALL of those customization options are pretty rad.
