Gesturizer: Launch Apps and Actions Using Gestures

Is your selection of Activator gestures wearing a little thin? Looking to add an infinite amount of app-launching gestures to your jailbroken iPhone?

If that sounds all too familiar, then Gesturizer could be just what you need. This jailbreak tweak allows you to launch apps and perform actions, using custom hand-drawn gestures. Check out our full video demonstration inside…


Once installed, Gesturizer places a new settings panel in your Settings app. Within, you will find two sample gesture profiles, and an option to add additional gestures.

Gestures, or glyphs as they’re called in Gesturizer, can consist of any hand-drawn symbol or character.

Once you have your glyph established for your particular gesture, simply perform the gesture on the top half of the App Switcher window; doing so immediately launches the Activator action or URL that you configured in the settings panel.

At $2.99, Gesturizer isn’t cheap, but if you’re a heavy Activator user, and you’re running low on options, it may be the solution for you.

Gesturizer can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and it’s compatible with both the iPhone and the iPad.

Have you taken it for a spin? If so, how’d you like it?
