FingerTouch Is a Jailbreak Tweak That Allows You to Assign Gestures to Touch ID

Lots of jailbroken iPhone owners will tell you that it’s never a bad idea to have more gestures. After all, that’s the whole basis behind the popular Activator extension, which gives you more ways to interact with your device to perform actions.

FingerTouch is a new jailbreak tweak that uses the same concept, but for Touch ID.
FingerTouch takes advantage of this by letting you assign different Touch ID button-based tap gestures to different actions. Out of the box, the tweak lets you use the following gestures:
  • Single tap
  • Double tap
  • Triple tap
  • Tap and hold
  • Hold
 You can assign a custom action to any of these gestures. Here are all the actions that are available:
  • Lock your device
  • Go to Home screen
  • Open App Switcher
  • Turn on or turn off the flashlight
  • Take a screenshot
  • Open Reachability
  • Switch to the last open app
  • Invoke Siri
  • Enable or disable rotation lock
  • Open Control Center or Notification Center
  • Close the current app
You can configure the tweak from its dedicated preferences pane in Settings. From there, you can assign these actions to any Touch ID gesture. Apart from this, it offers a number of useful options such as:
  • Enable or disable the tweak
  • Enable or disable vibrational feedback when you press Touch ID
  • Adjust the intensity of the vibration
  • Set the time limit during which the gesture should be performed
Since the tweak requires a Touch ID sensor, it won’t work with devices older than the iPhone 5s, so this is something to keep in mind. Nevertheless, if you want to give it a try on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad, you can download it for free today from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
