    Default 'DoubleTapToSleep' Lets You Double Tap the Home or Lock Screen to Lock Your Device


    Want a cool new way to lock your device? Whether your sleep/wake button is just in the midst of pooping out on you, or you just want to try something new, a new free jailbreak tweak called DoubleTapToSleep by iOS developer Mohammad Abu-Garbeyyeh is now available to give you a taste of something different.

    DoubleTapToSleep, as the name implies, lets you double-tap on either the Home Screen or the Lock Screen to lock your device (put it to sleep). It's perfect for those with broken sleep/wake buttons, but like mentioned earlier, it also just gives you the option to use a touch control instead of a hardware button if you're looking to spice up the experience of iOS some more.

    If you have a broken sleep/wake button, then chances are you're already using Activator and have set up some other method to lock your device; otherwise, you may be taking advantage of the auto-lock feature of iOS. This DoubleTapToSleep jailbreak tweak simply offers a little bit of competition and a new way of doing things.

    If you want to give DoubleTapToSleep a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. There are no options to configure. The tweak requires iOS 8 to be used.

    Name: DoubleTapToSleep
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.2
    Repo: BigBoss

    Yes activator has done this for a long time. However activator is still giving issues with the Touch ID I believe so this may be a better alternative cause that's all I had activator set up for.

    I would like to see a double tap gesture that can be configured for other apps, functions.
    Where is this gesture in Activato?
    Please

    Double tap on the home screen should be added to Activator. I'm surprised it isn't there already.
