‘SafariSwipez’ Allows You To Close Safari Tabs With A Swipe [Jailbreak Tweak]


Few days back we showed you a number of jailbreak tweaks that enhance mobile Safari’s functionality on your jailbroken iPhone and iPad.

Add SafariSwipez to that list. It’s a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to close tabs in mobile Safari with a swipe.

After installing the jailbreak tweak, all you need to do is swipe up or swipe down on the open page instead of tapping on the x button.

You can check out the brief demo of the jailbreak tweak in action below:

It doesn’t add any options to configure the tweak in the Settings app. Install the tweak to enable the feature, and uninstall it if you want to disable it.

SafariSwipez is available for free on Cydia on the BigBoss repo. If you like gesture driven jailbreak tweaks such as Zephyr then you’ll definitely like it. It just seems a lot more natural way of closing tabs.

Click on the download link below to install the package from Cydia if you’re on a jailbroken iOS device.

      Thanks. I think gestures are still considered as a feature for powers user as they are not obvious from the get go. The x button is a lot more obvious, but once you know your gestures it is a more natural way to do things. So I guess Apple has to draw a fine line between the two. Though I agree Apple should give us an option to enable the gestures like we can with the four-five finger multitouch gestures available on the iPad.
