STRCounter lets jailbreakers quickly ascertain how many characters are in a selected text string

Many situations exist when someone might need to be mindful of the number of characters they’re using in a body of text, whether it’s a requirement for a web page text field, a rule for a school essay, or even a personal choice to keep language as short and concise as possible.

If you’re jailbroken, then a useful tool in the form of a jailbreak tweak dubbed STRCounter by iOS developer Suguita may be particularly helpful, as it helps the end user effortlessly discern how many characters and lines exist in any string of selected text.

As depicted in the screenshot examples above, STRCounter adds a new option to the selected text menu called “Counter” that, when tapped, summons a pop-up message confirming the selected text and designating the number of characters and lines that the selected text was comprised of.

STRCounter is both convenient for those fringe circumstances where you might need to know how many characters are in your body of text and easy to use. Having said that, it seems like it could have a niche in this community.

If you’re interested in trying STRCounter out for yourself, then you can download it for free from Sugiuta’s personal repository via your favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 13 and 14 devices.

Anyone who isn’t already using Sugiuta’s personal repository can add it to their package manager app of choice by using the URL provided below:
