Thread: 'AlwaysFirstSwipe' Disables the CC and NC Grabbers in Full-screen Applications

    Default 'AlwaysFirstSwipe' Disables the CC and NC Grabbers in Full-screen Applications


    In full-screen applications, rather than immediately opening Control Center or Notification Center when swiping up from the bottom of the display or down from the top of the display, a grabber is revealed that you can have to swipe on a second time to actually open Control Center or Notification Center.

    If you want to disable these grabbers completely and make it so that when you're trying to open Control Center or Notification Center in a full-screen application it will only take one swipe, then you need a new free jailbreak tweak called AlwaysFirstSwipe by iOS developer Adam Seiter.



    With this tweak installed, you will only have to swipe once from either the top or bottom of the display to open Control Center or Notification Center. You won't have to deal with any grabbers that are going to appear and make you swipe a second time. One such example of the annoying grabber is shown in the screenshot above, which appears when we try to open Notification Center while watching a video.

    While the grabber system was put in place by Apple to help prevent accidents, someone with a steady hand may not necessarily need such an annoying safeguard.

    You can enable or disable the tweak from the preferences pane that is included in the Settings application after being installed. The tweak works on both iOS 7 and iOS 8. If you want to give the tweak a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now.

    Name: AlwaysFirstSwipe
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.1-30
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-8.1
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1

    I'd be cautious upgrading this tweak. As one of 4 tweaks that got updates this morning caused my iPhone 5 to go into an endless boot loop.

    If you hold down volume up while rebooting, it boots into safe mode, allowing you to uninstall whatever tweak is causing issues.
