Hold2Speak

Hold2Speak has been updated with a brand new feature that has been heavily requested since the tweak originally debuted on Cydia. It now comes with the ability to initiate calls directly from the speaker phone.

As you might have heard, Hold2Speak is a concept that I envisioned, which was brought to fruition by a couple of super-nice and super-smart developers. The original version allowed users to receive calls directly in speaker phone mode, but this latest version takes the tweak to the next level. Full video walkthrough inside.

As with the original version of the tweak, Hold2Speak 1.1 features no options or settings to configure after installation. In other words, once you install it, you can begin using it immediately.

You can, of course, answer an incoming call using the speaker phone by tapping and holding on the Answer button when someone calls. Now, however, you can initiate calls from the speaker phone by using the same tap-and-hold gesture on the Call button, or on a contact in recents or in favorites.

Hold2Speak isn’t a groundbreaking or game-changing tweak by any means, but it’s one of those tweaks that you’ll find to be extremely handy when the need arrises. This is a tweak that will probably always find a home on my iOS device, unless Apple implements similar functionality natively (not happening).

What do you think about Hold2Speak’s latest update? You can find it free of charge on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. If you decide to give it a try, sound off down below in the comments section.

    Sorry Offtopic.
    Anyone know any Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 ?

    • Abi Manyu

      yes, try ebay.

      • There is no jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x. On ebay there are selling you fake jalbreaks.

      • lemonhead

        dude he was obviously being sarcastic…

      • I can’t imagine how many ppl are searching ebay after this post…

      • Capirexz

        Found it. Thank you so much my friend !!

    • Donovan

      Wont come out till iOS 8 comes out. They don’t wanna waste possible exploits.

  • Pato_

    Interesting.

  • Doesn’t work with Button4phone

    • John Sklikas

      You mean Button4phone doesn’t work with it. Some devs only create a mess. The dev of Button4Phone, instead of configuring the call button to the new shape, created a new button and removed the old. Thus, this tweak will not work with anything that tweaks the Call button. As I said, some devs enjoying making a mess I suppose. If you want compatibility, contact the Button4Phone dev, because only he can fix this (and I know it’s not hard in fact, he just needs to set the button under the set method to his object and not remove a subview in ViewDidLoad and add a new one).

      • I stand corrected. I just took off Button4phone and sent the dev a note. Hold2Speak is working fine now

  • Ваше Онтатиле Масвибилили

    I would really like it if it was integrated with siri. Saying something like “call John and put him on speaker”

    • John Sklikas

      Not possible. Last time that adding commands on Siri was possible was on iOS 5.

  • Phil Randle

    Pretty cool concept, I really want a tweak to bring the phone GUI Elements from 7.1 to people on 7.0x Jailbreaks, they improvements Apple did look nice.

  • Totally off topic; but could someone someday make a digital clock for notification center? For some reason Apple doesn’t like clocks in the Today view.
