Forcy 3D Touch

Forcy is a brand new jailbreak tweak, one of the first newly created tweaks for the iOS 9 jailbreak, that allows you to enable 3D Touch-inspired gestures on any iOS 9 device. The gestures, which are impressively similar to what you’d find on 3D Touch-enabled devices like the iPhone 6s, allow you to take advantage of the Home screen app icon shortcuts made popular on Apple’s most recently released iPhone hardware.

Forcy is available right now for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Have a look at our video walkthrough to see how it works.

Once you install Forcy, there are no settings or options to configure. To use the tweak, simply perform a swipe-up gesture on a compatible Home screen app icon. Compatible icons include:

  • Messages
  • Calendar
  • Camera
  • Clock
  • Wallet
  • Notes
  • iBooks
  • News
  • Phone
  • Safari
  • Mail
  • Game Center
  • Contacts
  • Find Friends

Obviously, Forcy isn’t a 1:1 emulation of true 3D Touch, as that requires special hardware beneath the screen for pressure sensitivity. Instead, Forcy relies on a simple swipe gesture to invoke its shortcut menus. It’s very similar to the look of 3D Touch, down to the animations, but it’s still not true 3D Touch, and it doesn’t feature the haptic feedback that makes the feature so impressionable.

Still, Forcy is an impressive attempt at bringing older iPhone users closer to the current-gen experience. The tweak is missing some of the stock shortcuts found on the 3D Touch-enabled iPhone 6s, but there’s a good chance that this tweak will see future updates to bring it even closer in line with what’s available on the new iPhones.

Have you tried Forcy yet? What did you think about the experience?

    Tried it.. But Revealmenu is better. The latter uses long press feature while the forcy uses swipe up. IMO

    Still have both on my device

      How can you delete an app if you have it installed?

      • Swipe up

      • Bugs Bunnay

        Step 1. Lay iphone flat on ground. Step 2. Run it over several times.

      But how can you wiggle your icons?

      • Ernalogue Lanrei

        swiping up apps with reveal menu puts them in wiggle mode and longpress in forcy does same.
        If youre using both, i guess u have to take One of them out.

      • Loyo Media

        Hahah great. I like revealmenu also.

    • Forcy does slide up or hold

      • Loyo Media

        Slide up

      • I meant it does both, the Dev updated it so u can choose to slide up or hold to activate it

  • Jake Platt

    Hopefully someone will make a tweak that lets users allocate what shortcuts they want to use 3D Touch for rather than be limited to the shortcuts set by Apple. Regardless I’m sure there will be some excellent 3D Touch tweaks released as the jailbreak matures.

  • Okay, here’s the Thing, it’s not 3D Touch like Quick Actions it is the Exactly the Same thing. And all iOS 9 devices already include the Quick Actions even thought it doesn’t support 3D Touch. You just have to find a way to enable it, so in this case swipe up, or any other gesture.

    And it doesn’t support just stock apps, but all the third party apps as well. Which is really Awesome.

    So, apart from the gesture of activation, the Tweak is 1:1 emulation of how the Actions look and work.

  • David Shores

    I’ll admit it as well. I also prefer revealMenu. Feels a little more like the real thing.

  • David Hvilivitzki

    Need a tweak that mimics the 3D Touch for all apps that support it, like whatsapp for example, without any optional addons, if the app has support of 3D Touch let it work, make iOS think you have a 3D touch enabled device and when you swipe up or long press (doesn’t matter) it activates it.

    Hope I made myself clear.

    • Tony

      revealMenu does that with 3rd party apps

  • jalexcarter

    hate the iOS 9 app switcher and saw the tweak LegacySwitcher on the google doc list of tweaks that are compatible but I haven’t been able to find it in cydia. is there a different repo its in? anybody know how to download this tweak? Jeff?

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    This seems like Velox in a way.

  • totallymichael

    Not sure if anybody else is having the same issue, but I had to delete it because it was so annoying. Basically if I swiped between different page of apps and my finger was touching an icon it would lag a half second before registering the swipe. And then every now and then it would randomly act like I had long pressed and “x”s would appear on all icons. Swiping from page to page when my finger initially touched in between the icons solved the issue, but yeah. Not gonna do that. I’m assuming it’s because the tweak is trying to determine whether or not it’s a swipe up. Anybody got a fix?

    • Zzyzxd

      I’ve just deleted it because of this issue.

    • Mattias Nilsson

      I agree. I uninstalled Forcy because of this. Maybe Revealmenu doesnt have the same negative side effect, but I dont have time to try it.

  • Alexander Figueroa

    How to do delete an app while using revealmenu ?!

  • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

    Any iOS 8 compatible tweak that does this?

  • the haptic is available directly to Forcy settings. No need for an extra tweak.

  • How are you guys finding iOS 9? Is it worth upgrading to from 8.4 yet in terms of bugs/lag etc

  • Smoov

    Can someone post a video of some sort on how to delete an app while having forcy and hapticle? I’m just having a little trouble understanding how to delete it.

    • amir
