Shake your device into Airplane mode with ‘Shake Air’

For some reason, Apple insists on keeping frequently used settings toggles buried deep within the Settings app. From the Lock screen, doing things like enabling/disabling Bluetooth or Wi-Fi take more than a few steps.

Activating a device’s Airplane mode, however, is a bit easier, as it sits on the top level in the Settings app. But for those who still find the process to be a pain, we’ve got a new jailbreak package for you called Shake Air…

Shake Air is a simple tweak that enables you to toggle your device’s Airplane mode option on and off by physically shaking it. And that’s actually all there is to it. There’s no icon, and the only option in Settings is an on/off switch.

In my testing, the tweak worked just as advertised. Shaking my iPhone 5 quickly altered the state of Airplane mode, and I saw no reliability issues. It is worth noting, though, that this only works when your device is locked.

I’m not quite sure who I’d recommend Shake Air to. Its purpose is pretty niche, and I believe Activator can already do this. But hey, it’s good at what it does and the price is right. You can find it in the BigBoss repo for free.
