[Review] TouchPosé+ - A Fully Featured Version of TouchPosé
If you remember TouchPosé
, the free jailbreak tweak that brought an elegant blue circle to the touch screen everywhere you placed a finger, then you may want to check out a new jailbreak tweak dubbed TouchPosé+ by iOS developer iolate
, the big brother and full version of TouchPosé that comes with more advanced features. It includes multi-touch support and will show a blue circle for more than one finger:
As we explained in the original TouchPosé article, the circles give you the same effect as the white circle indicator that follows your swipes and taps in Ryan Petrich

application. About a second after releasing your finger from the touch screen, the blue circle disappears from the display. The circle doesn't have any adverse effects to you using your iDevice, it just adds a touch of customization to your iDevice you didn't have before – not to mention TouchPosé+ just screams customization. Taking a look at the preferences pane we have numerous options:
From the preferences, we can choose the Activator action that will enable and disable the tweak on demand. We also have the ability to change the size of the circle. You can choose anywhere from 20 pixels to 100 pixels. In this same pane, you can change the color of the circle using a complex color picker that includes a transparency slider. Additionally, you can choose between using the default circle, and using a custom image for the tapping effect. By default, the custom image is the TouchPosé icon, but you can use any image you want to.
This tweak is a nice way to add some style to your iDevice. Most people can enjoy this tweak simply for the interaction feedback it allows the device to give the user. It certainly isn’t useful for anything specific, however if you like changing things beyond Apple’s control, then I can highly recommend this tweak to you. It is very solidly built and doesn’t appear to have any bugs. The circles that follow you fingers also will not cause any lag for your iDevice. If you want to try before you buy, then download TouchPosé before buying TouchPosé+.
