This year, Samsung introduced a bigger 'Edge' variant of the Galaxy S7 that allows users to access specific information by swiping right from the edge of the display. If you're an iPhone user and you're trapped in the ecosystem, you can play with this functionality with the new stunning, Edge jailbreak tweak.
Edge Jailbreak Tweak Gives Your iPhone The Edge Functionality Found On Galaxy S7 Edge
The Galaxy S7 Edge boasts a dual curved display along the sides, that are devoted to fulfill personalized controls of the user. The Edge jailbreak tweak for your iOS device lets you experience configurable pages as found on the Galaxy S7. While users can customize them according to their preferences, the basic purpose of the functionality is to quickly access your favorite apps and other information. Customized tasks can be set as well as favorite contacts can also be selected with the tweak.
The Edge jailbreak tweak works the same way as the functionality found on the Galaxy S7 Edge. All you have to do is swipe left from the right side of the display and that's it. The layout of the tweak is identical as it features up to four pages constituting the App Edge, Recent Edge, Task Edge and People Edge. To access these pages, just swipe left or right.
The App Edge page shows all your favorite apps. Adding an app is simple, all you have to do is tap on the plus button that opens a popup window from where you can choose your desired app. The Recent edge page shows all the recent apps that you have accessed. Custom tasks can be added in the Tasks Edge page like creating contacts, opening a new tab in Safari, taking a photo or more. Finally, the People Edge page is where you will find your contacts. Tapping on a contact would present three options out of which you can choose your desired one.
Removing an app from the page is as simple as adding one, simply tap and hold the app icon until it starts to wiggle. Then press the red colored X button and that's it. The Edge jailbreak tweak comes with its own configuration pane that provides basic controls like enabling or disabling the tweak, changing activation area, re-order pages and more.
