SlideCut: an innovative keyboard shortcut tweak for jailbroken iPhones


SlideCut is a brand new jailbreak tweak from developer r_plus. Whenever I see this developer’s name behind a tweak, it piques my interest, because they’re usually innovative and fun to use. SlideCut is no different.

SlideCut allows you to slide from your spacebar key to any shortcut key to execute an action. For example, you can slide from the spacebar to the ‘A’ key to select all, or slide from the keyboard to the ‘C’ key to copy the highlighted text.

We’ve got a full video walkthrough of SlideCut in action. Have a look inside to see how it works.

After installing SlideCut you can start using it immediately. There are no options or settings to configure, just install and go.

They keyboard shortcuts for SlideCut are as follows:

  • X: Cut
  • C: Copy
  • V: Paste
  • A: Select All
  • Z: Undo
  • Y: Redo
  • Q: Start line
  • P: End line
  • B: Beginning of document
  • E: End of document
  • S: Select word
  • H: Move left
  • J: Move down
  • K: Move up
  • L: Move right

I really like SlideCut and I think you should check it out. It makes executing keyboard shortcuts on the iPhone a breeze and it’s fun to use. You can find it for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo today.
