How to hide your dock with ‘SwipeDock’

SwipeDock is a new jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo that allows you to hide your dock with a swipe.

The tweak includes nearly a dozen dock hiding animations along with many more options to customize it to your liking.

If you’re searching for more Home screen real estate, or simple want a cool tweak to show off to your family and friends, be sure to check out our video walkthrough…


By default, SwipeDock allows you to hide the dock with a single finger swipe, but there are options to enable 2 fingers or even 3 fingers. If multitouch gestures aren’t really your thing, there’s even an option to use Activator instead.

SwipeDock also lends an option to allow an additional row of icons on your Home screen. Normally this would be a tight squeeze, but because of the tweak’s dock hiding capabilities, it allows for one to adequately navigate between his or her favorite apps with ease.

For $0.99 on Cydia, you can give SwipeDock a try for yourself. If you decide to do so, you know the drill by now; let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
