Thread: Control Features of Your Apps in iOS 7 With the Swipe of a Finger Using 'AppControl'

    Default Control Features of Your Apps in iOS 7 With the Swipe of a Finger Using 'AppControl'


    Every once in a while, we get a really cool jailbreak tweak that we just get the feeling is going to be a hit, and we think this is one of them. Dubbed AppControl by iOS developer John Rickman, this tweak allows you to access application-specific settings at the swipe of a finger from your iOS 7 Home Screen.

    With AppControl, you can swipe up on any of your Home Screen's application icons to get the interface above. In our example, we've swiped up on the Messages application, and you can see AppControl's user interface for the Messages application.

    AppControl shows you information, such as when the application was last opened and the version number of the application, and you can control features specific to that application, such as enabling or disabling (and choosing) a password required to launch that specific application, configuring a custom volume level for that application (great for music applications), and configuring a custom brightness for level for that application (great for video applications).

    There is also a restore option, for reverting the application back to its default settings, and a launch application option at the bottom of the interface, for launching the application from the AppControl interface. The 'X' button at the top right of the interface can be used to close AppControl.

    The developer has plans to add new features to AppControl in the future, such as the ability to hide notifications for specific applications, change the icon image for specific applications, and add an application-specific API.

    AppControl has no options to configure – what you see above is what you get. We think it's a really interesting way to control features of your applications right from the Home Screen in an aesthetically-pleasing interface that screams, "I was carefully tailored to look good on iOS 7." If you would like to give AppControl a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for $1.99.
