SlideCut is a brand new jailbreak tweak from developer r_plus. Whenever I see this developer’s name behind a tweak, it piques my interest, because they’re usually innovative and fun to use. SlideCut is no different.

SlideCut allows you to slide from your spacebar key to any shortcut key to execute an action. For example, you can slide from the spacebar to the ‘A’ key to select all, or slide from the keyboard to the ‘C’ key to copy the highlighted text.

We’ve got a full video walkthrough of SlideCut in action. Have a look inside to see how it works.

After installing SlideCut you can start using it immediately. There are no options or settings to configure, just install and go.

They keyboard shortcuts for SlideCut are as follows:

  • X: Cut
  • C: Copy
  • V: Paste
  • A: Select All
  • Z: Undo
  • Y: Redo
  • Q: Start line
  • P: End line
  • B: Beginning of document
  • E: End of document
  • S: Select word
  • H: Move left
  • J: Move down
  • K: Move up
  • L: Move right

I really like SlideCut and I think you should check it out. It makes executing keyboard shortcuts on the iPhone a breeze and it’s fun to use. You can find it for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo today.

What do you think?

    does it conflict with swipeselection?

    • Tyler Zyco

      If you change the Swipe Area to “Everything but the spacebar” in SwipeSelection settings, it works just fine.

    It would be a much cooler tweak if it was compatible with iPad! Just saying

    • XboxOne

      Enough with the iPad whining.

      • Anthony Hufford

        It’s not whining, it’s a legitimate complaint. There is less and less tweaks for the iPad as iOS evolves. I realize that there’s way more iPhone users, but the iPad could stand to have a few tweaks as well.

        Yeah but it doesn’t need to be said in every single post. Tell the developer about it, not us!

  • Sicheng Xu

    Yeah right…another KBshortcuts imitating tweak. I really miss that one form ios6 era. And comparing to Slidecut I think Keyshortcut pro is better.

  • Is there a tweak (for iPad) that allows you to have keyboard shortcuts like on Mac?
    What I mean is: no swiping but holding down space and tapping another key to do the actions, like space+c for copy.
    If not, tweak idea?
