There are many useful Cydia tweaks out there, and till now we have many covered many of them. For sure, life would be very difficult without jailbreak app developers. This time we’re going to look at yet another useful Cydia tweak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that allows you to wake up your device with double tapping.

Smart Tap Cydia tweak

Enter Smart Tap, a new Cydia tweak by a seasoned developer Elias Limneos, which allows you to lock and unlock your iOS devices with gesture control. Gestures for sure are a quick way to do stuff, and probably the most easiest. Till now there have been many such tweaks released, that utilizes gestures, but the Smart Tap tweak really stands out from others.

With this Cydia tweak, you can light up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch’s display with a simple double tap on the screen. If you want to directly head straight to the homescreen, and bypass the lock screen, then you’ll need to do a slide-up gesture.

Now, when you’re done using your device, and if you want to lock your device, then instead of pressing the physical lock key, you simply need to double tap on a vacant area on your device’s display.

If you’ve noted, then the power button on an iOS device many times malfunctions because of its repeated use. In some cases, it even stops working completely. But if you start using this tweak then it would mean that instead of using the physical power button, you can lock or unlock your iOS device with simple gesture which means the power button won’t die early compared to regular use. You’ll then need to use your power button only when you want to turn off/on your iOS device.

So if you’re interested in trying out Smart Tap, then you can it from the BigBoss repository in Cydia for a price of $1.99. Of course to use this tweak you’ll need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Here’s a video that demonstrates this tweak in detail.
