BreadCrumbArrow: a new jailbreak tweak that removes back-to-app text in the status bar

iOS 9’s new back-to-app feature, which places a handy link in the upper left hand corner of the status bar to venture back to a prior used app, is a wonderful new feature. But not everyone is thrilled over the fact that it truncates that normal information contained within the status bar, effectively hiding the cellular data signal and carrier name, and other information in the process.

BreadCrumbArrow is a brand new jailbreak tweak that aims to modify the back-to-app links in such a way that they still display the iPhone’s cellular data information. Instead of the name of the app, only the small arrow resides in the upper left-corner of the status bar as a means to link back to the original app.


Here is a before and after comparison of the status bar’s back to app link. On the left side you’ll see the standard back-to-app link, and on the right side you see the link with BreadCrumbArrow installed. Notice how all of the text is removed sans the left-pointing arrow, which leaves room for the cellular data and Wi-Fi information.

BreadCrumbArrow is a free jailbreak tweak, and it’s available right now on the BigBoss repo. Leave your thoughts about the tweak down below in the comments, and also, be sure to check out some of the other breadcrumb-oriented tweaks below.
