MissionControl: Bring Up Settings Shortcuts List Via Gestures [Cydia]


The popularity of SBSettings among iOS users is enough to indicate the worth of shortcuts for those areas of the OS which come in frequent use. However, SBSettings are focused exclusively on controlling the system option in an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. MissionControl is a pretty similar Cydia tweak, but instead of just listing system settings, it comes with the options to go to Facebook and Twitter, and is activated by any gesture of your choice through Activator.

The tweak is available in the ModMyi repo of the Cydia store, and you can install it for free. Once installed, you will not see any changes in the Extensions tab in the Settings app, and no icon will be added to the Springboard. However, before MissionControl becomes functional, you need to have Activator installed on your iDevice. So, the tweak will add a new menu of its own to Activator, and you can assign any action to MissionControl.

Each time the assigned gesture is performed on your device, the MissionControl menu will show up, no matter where you are on your device. The options listed in the menu can let you perform the following actions.

  1. Launch Wi-Fi settings.
  2. Start composing a new SMS or email.
  3. Go to the Twitter or Facebook app. If you don’t have it, MissionControl will take you straight to their webpage.
  4. Launch the Cydia store.
  5. Enter any URL to be opened in Safari.
  6. You can also Respring your device from the MissionControl menu.

The menu can certainly use a little more options, but for free, MissionControl is a pretty reasonable tweak.
