How To: Get Super Fast Access to Your Favorite App with a Quick Swipe on Your iOS 7 iPhone

Get Super Fast Access to Your Favorite App with a Quick Swipe on Your iOS 7 iPhone

In a previous guide, I showed you how to add a 5th app to your icon dock. This is both useful and cool-looking.

Unfortunately, cramming a 6th would be make the tapping area too small, so instead I'll show you how to save space by making your most used app easily accessible with a simple swiping gesture.

Step 1: Jailbreak Your iOS 7 Device

It may sound intimidating, but jailbreaking is really simple. Just follow our guide on how to jailbreak your iOS 7 iPhone.

Step 2: Install Fav

After jailbreaking, open the pre-installed Cydia app, and search for and install Fav.

Step 3: Enable and Select App

Go into your Settings app, locate Fav, choose the app you'd like to easily access with a swipe, and then enable.

Step 4: Swipe in Your Favorite App

Enabling the App Icon or App Snapshot options will dictate the view as you swipe your favorite app in from the left side of your first home screen, as seen below.

Have fun with this quick tweak, and remember to checkout the iOS hack page for more awesome tweaks.
