iOS makes your life easier by bringing consistency to the gestures that power multitasking features. No matter the device, you can take advantage of the same iPhone X multitasking gestures on your Apple tablet. Peruse this step-by-step tutorial to familiarize yourself with iOS 12’s new multitasking gestures on iPad.
Three finger drag, a productivity-boosting multi-touch trackpad gesture in macOS, isn’t working properly for some owners of Apple’s new MacBook Pro. Both 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pros have larger trackpads than their predecessors, but for many people the gesture doesn’t work at all.
For others, three finger drag works only intermittently or performs erroneously when used in one of the sides of the new MacBook Pro’s Force Touch trackpad.
MultitaskingGestures is a just released jailbreak tweak that brings Zephyr-like functionality to iPhones running iOS 7. Since it doesn’t look like we will see an iOS 7 updated version of Zephyr, developer Hamza Sood has taken the initiative to bring us something similar.
To be clear, MultitaskingGestures is not a 1:1 copy of Zephyr; it brings its own ideas and features to the table, but it’s a flattering impersonation of Chpwn’s groundbreaking tweak of old. Have a look at our video walkthrough inside to see MultitaskingGestures in action.
Imagine the iPad’s touch screen gaining a third dimension, enabling users to extract a 2D image, then manipulate it using new gestures, such as ‘pull’, ‘push’ and ‘sculpt’. That’s the gist of an Apple patent filed in 2012 and published Tuesday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Titled ‘Working with 3D Objects,’ the patent outlines a touch screen interface where users “generate and manipulate 3D objects using 3D gesture inputs.” At the core, the technology employs both capacitive touch sensors and proximity sensors in the iDevice screen…
We love it when developers really take the time to listen to their user-base. That’s exactly what Grant Paul (a.k.a. Chpwn) did after receiving feedback about his latest update to Zephyr.
Apparently, more than a few people were unhappy about the tweak’s new keyboard features. So much so, that Paul received over 200 some-odd emails and tweets expressing dislike over the changes. His response? Push out another update a few hours after the previous update, fully addressing the concerns.
Zephyr is arguably one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks available on Cydia today—and for good reason. It’s easy to use, reliable, and it makes switching between applications on your iPhone a breeze.
Today, the tweak gets even better. Chpwn announced this morning that Zephyr 1.5 is now available with several bug fixes for iOS 6, and the ability to use the iPad’s four-finger gestures on your iPhone…
Meet the brand new Safari. No, Apple hasn’t made any upgrades to Safari themselves, but you can gain a significantly better Safari browser right now by installing Swipe Safari – a new jailbreak tweak that just touched down on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
Swipe Safari promises to bring OS X Lion’s Safari navigation to the small screen, along with a host of other improved options and abilities.
The question is, is it worth its $1.50 asking price? Take a look at our video walkthrough inside and judge for yourselves…
