Swipebright: adjust brightness by swiping your status bar

This is probably one of the more intuitive ways to adjust your iPhone’s brightness from anywhere. Swipebright allows you to adjust your device’s brightness by means of a simple swipe of the status bar.

It may not sound all that exciting, but it’s a fairly convenient tweak to have, and it only costs $0.99 to add it to your jailbroken iPhone.

The developer could have easily stopped at creating a bare, yet functional tweak, but as you can see from the Settings panel it’s quite robust in features.

Swipebright can be purchased from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Would you consider using this tweak as a replacement for your current means of adjusting your iDevice’s brightness?
