Reimagine what’s possible from the iPhone’s Home Screen with AppEditor

One thing that I’ve always liked about having a jailbroken iPhone is that I can get to important things more quickly than I could on a stock handset. This is all because of the different types of shortcuts and extensions that you can have on a device that’s no longer being subjected to Apple’s native software restrictions.

While there’s certainly no shortage of jailbreak tweaks that permit handy shortcuts and functionality from almost anywhere in iOS, those who consider themselves to be power users may have something to gain from the likes of a newly released jailbreak tweak called AppEditor by iOS developer @CrazyMind90.

AppEditor can best be described as a one-stop shop add-on that provides access to more than 30 different features with a simple swipe-up gesture on any app icon on your Home Screen:

Once invoked, a prompt appears with a lengthy list of options, any of which can be shown or hidden on demand via the dedicated AppEditor app:

Among the different things you can have in the AppEditor prompt are:

  • Show the app’s path in the Filza file manager app
  • Show the app’s data path in the Filza file manager app
  • Switch between user accounts in the selected app
  • Clear the selected app’s caches folder
  • Disable notifications for the selected app when using other apps
  • Disable all notifications from other apps when using the selected app
  • Forcefully clear the cache for the selected app every time you launch it
  • Enable airplane mode automatically when opening the selected app
  • Disable Wi-Fi automatically when opening the selected app
  • Duplicate the selected app on your Home Screen
  • Change your current location in the selected app
  • Disable jailbreak tweaks when using the selected app
  • Disable incoming call alerts when using the selected app
  • Change the selected app’s Home Screen icon
  • Downgrade the selected app to an older version
  • Change the selected app’s language
  • Lock the selected app with Face ID or Touch ID authentication
  • Bypass jailbreak detection for the selected app (doesn’t work with all apps)
  • Set a fake badge notification value for the selected app
  • Erase the selected app’s data
  • Back up the selected app’s data
  • Restore the selected app’s data
  • Copy the selected app’s bundleID
  • Clear the selected app’s notification badge
  • Respring your device
  • Rune root commands via MiniTerm
  • Reload all ui caches
  • Userspace reboot
  • Soft reboot
  • Change the AppEditor app’s language
  • Enable or disable the tweak on demand

With so many different options and shortcuts, it’s no wonder that AppEditor has the potential to be incredibly useful for all kinds of different jailbreakers. Whether you want faster ways to access system features like cache-clearing, respringing, userspace rebooting, etc. or you just want to be able to change an app’s individual features, this tweak brings things to the table that many other similar jailbreak tweaks simply don’t offer.

Those who’d like to give the AppEditor jailbreak tweak a try can download it for free from the BigBoss repository via their favorite package manager, after which they’ll need to pay $4.99 to activate the tweak and all its features. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices.
