Clota Featured

Sometimes it’s hard to get a firm grasp on the naming conventions used for releases on the Cydia store, and this jailbreak tweak — entitled Clota – is the latest such one. I’m definitely not sure what’s behind the name, but the tweak works well enough.

Clota allows users to add two new tap based gestures to the new tab button found in the Safari browser. A double tap on the new tab button will close all open tabs sans the current tab. A triple tap, on the other hand, will close all tabs. Check inside for our video walkthrough showcasing how it works.

Clota includes a preference panel in the stock Settings app that allows you to enable or disable the two gestures independently of one another. Bonus points for you if you can spot the interesting spelling used for the descriptions of the two toggles.

If you’d like to give Clota a try, then you can find it for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Be sure to share your thoughts about the tweak in the comment section below.

    ios 6 + cydia >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>ios 7

    • rockdude094

      iOS 6 = The most efficient and reliable firmware to date. Professional and straight to the point.
      iOS 7 = Same thing.. Super slow-mo and white overall. Cartoonish with useless features.

      IOS 6 + Cydia > iOS 7

        Useless features? Maybe your talking about parallax effect because everything else is far from useless.

      • rockdude094

        Well allocation options in the settings app does not count as feature. There is nothing ‘New”.. you know what I mean ?

    • James

      yeah. not as abstract as some other ones. thats for sure.

  • James

    The name is probably derived from the task that it performs (e.g. CLOsing TAbs).
