I’m sure Jeff would have liked to share the news himself, but since he’s currently unavailable, I’ll be the one to announce that Hold2Speak is now available in Cydia.

Hold2Speak was born from an original concept by Jeff, who wanted a way to answer phone calls directly into speaker mode. Thanks to the jailbreak community and developers @isklikas and @sharedRoutine, this concept has now become a reality…

Jeff actually reviewed the tweak before it was pushed to Cydia yesterday. I invite you to watch this video to see the tweak in action, and read Jeff’s Hold2Speak review for more details.

You can grab Hold2Speak from the ModMyi repo for free. Once you’ve downloaded the tweak, and taken it for a spin, make sure to come back here to tell us what you think.

    Thanks for this great and useful concept to become a reality πŸ™‚
    I’m loving it actually πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚
    It will be helpful while we are driving… Thanks Jeff and Jailbreak Community πŸ™‚

  • Since I never hold a phone to my ear and always use speakerphone; this fixes a longtime annoyance. Thanks Jeff.

    What tweak are you using? Because my iPhone still shows SLIDE TO ANSWER whenever someone is calling me.

    • Skoven

      Tap and hold the “slide to answer” “button”.
      The video shows this…

    • Joseph Plunkett

      I believe Tap to Answer is for when you already have the phone unlocked and in use.

  • Randy Hall

    *****This is aweseome Jeff. What would be great and useful i think also, is auto activating speraker-phone via proximity sensor when phone is move away from ear. Great for multitaskers. What deo you guys think?****

    • Sinistry

      I think it would have to work absolutely perfectly every time otherwise I could see it becoming very annoying very quickly. It’s a GREAT idea, though.

    • John Sklikas

      I am the developer. I am actually trying to implement this, but it’s hard getting the time needed exactly right. For example, sometimes, you just wanna see how much time you speak. A perfect time is needed that is how much until the phone is in front of you, along with this time being different than the time of a simple check. Easy to implement, hard to get right. And I want it to be perfect. Feel free to suggest πŸ™‚ (so this feature is on my phone, I just need to get the time right)

  • Sinistry

    Just a thought but I think it would also be a good idea to add this feature to the call button. Granted it would only save one step but it still seems like it would add a degree of convenience. Anyone else think so or am I having a special needs moment?

  • Wolfer

    Yes it is inside modemyi repo, it is suposed to be installed automaticly in cydia at the moment of the jailbreak…any help you need you can ask…if I can or know the answer I will help u friend.

    • Victoria

      Yea it was there when I checked again later in the evening. Thanks!

      • Wolfer

        You are welcome Lady Victoria. πŸ™‚

  • Wolfer

    It is working super great for me since I installed yesyerday from modmyi repo. It work from the lockscreen or from the springboard hompage. When it said drag to answer just hold the button do not drag it, and it will answer directly to the speaker phone.

  • cdlenfert

    I’ve added the Modmyi repo and can’t seem to find this tweak anywhere. Has it been pulled down?

    • Wolfer

      No!!! Look above some comments before yours and will see a pic with the modmyi repo that I post just in case someone need it. It is rare because the modmyi repo is supposed to be installed automaticly whit cydia during the jailbreak process!! Good luck man.
