There’s now a super easy way to dismiss the keyboard from within any app in iOS. ReturnDismiss, a new jailbreak tweak released for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, makes it possible for jailbroken users to easily hide the stock iOS keyboard using a simple tap and hold gesture.

ReturnDismiss even works when the app you’re in doesn’t normally support the ability to dismiss the keyboard. Take a look at our brief video walkthrough inside for all of the goods…

Once installed, there are no options or settings to configure. To use ReturnDismiss, simply tap and hold the Return button on the keyboard until the keyboard disappears from view.

ReturnDismiss isn’t a groundbreaking tweak, and the concept has been done before. Yet, it’s a well executed release that works just as expected. For those of you looking for a new spin on dismissing the stock iOS keyboard, then check out ReturnDismiss.

    This works and that’s great. But a swipe down would make more sense, in my opinion anyway.

      Agree !

      Pull To Dismiss is the tweak you are looking for. I believe it was made by Petrich.

        Thanks! You have an awesome wealth of knowledge about tweaks I need/want. You’ve helped me a bunch of times~
        ReturnDismiss seems to add an unnecessary return to your text.

        I am glad I could help a bit

    Good, though I still like DismissMyKeyboard better. Or perhaps we can have both running at the same time? 😉
    By the way, that fisheye…

      Dismissmykeyboard already does a really good job 🙂 if the Dev could add a small button like the one found on “CloudMagic” app on appstore would be really nice 🙂

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        Exactly. Although having an additional button could make the keyboard be a bit cluttered in my opinion unless you have a bigger screen such as the iPad (although there is already a key for that).
        Personally I like DismissMyKeyboard better because its a bit faster to swipe than tap and hold on a key but… it’s personal preference. 🙂

    I can’t find this. Any clues?
