  • 'MyAssistive' Lets You Take Control of Your iOS Assistive Touch Button


    When you enable Assistive Touch on your device, you’ll notice a button on your display that looks like the one above. A new free jailbreak tweak called MyAssistive by iOS developer PoomSmart allows you to turn that button into and easy-to-get-to shortcut for almost anything you want.

    After enabling Assistive Touch on your iOS device, you can head over to the MyAssistive preferences pane in the Settings application to configure the tweak's options:



    You’ll be able to easily enable or disable the tweak on demand, but under that you can choose the function that you will assign to the Assistive Touch button. You can set the Assistive Touch button so that it does any of the following things when you tap on it:

    • Perform the default function
    • Toggle the App Switcher
    • Toggle Siri
    • Toggle Voice Control
    • Take a screenshot
    • Triple click
    • Adjust the volume of the device
    • Mute or un-mute the device
    • Restart the springboard
    • Reboot the device
    • Power down the device
    • Put the device to sleep
    • Emulate the home button
    • Quit the top application
    • Lock the device
    • Rotate the screen Clockwise
    • Rotate the screen Counter-clockwise
    • Toggle the rear-facing LED flash

    After you choose what the Assistive Touch button will do, you can enable or disable the No Snap Position feature, which will allow you to drag and place the Assistive Touch anywhere on the display without it auto-snapping to one of the display’s edges. You can also enable or disable a no-hide feature for when taking screenshots and enable or disable a blue icons feature, which makes the icons for the default function look like the screenshot below:



    The tweak is interesting because it brings use to a feature that many of us don’t use that often, if at all. If you’re interested in giving this tweak a try, you’ll find it at no cost in Cydia’s BigBoss repository. Don’t forget to enable Assistive Touch from Settings>General>Accessibility, as this is a necessary step to use this jailbreak tweak.

    The developer also informs us that more features are coming soon!

      Doesn't work. Maybe not compatible with certain tweaks or themes. Respring,boot etc. never shows anything on screen.
