Zephyr Gesture Tweak Updated in Cydia With More Options and App Blacklists

Chpwn has updated his popular jailbreak tweak called Zephyr with a couple big improvements. The gesture-based tweak brings intuitive, iPad-like navigation gestures to iPhone and iPod touch owners.

Version 1.0.2 of Zephyr is now available in Cydia as a free upgrade to existing users. The update brings with it the ability to blacklist certain apps and set custom finger swipes for each gesture.

The new settings window for Zephyr offers more options for customizing your experience.  You can set up to four-finger gestures for the two swipes, making the overall experience feel more like the iPad. You can also make sure that the iOS keyboard stays out of the way in open apps while switching with each gesture.

Specific apps can now be blacklisted in Zephyr. When you disable a certain app for either of the two navigation gestures you will not be able to swipe out of that specific app. It’s a pretty simple setting, but it can prove to be very helpful if you keep accidentally leaving an app with a Zephyr gesture.

The finger swipe and app blacklist additions make this Zephyr update an essential download. If you haven’t already, chpwn’s Zephyr can be purchased in Cydia from the BigBoss repo for $2.99.
