Deck: The Must-Have Shortcut Bar for iOS [Cydia]

When you freshly jailbreak your iOS device, there are a number of well-known jailbreak tweaks from Cydia that should be downloaded instantly to enhance the functionality of iOS far beyond the limitations set by Apple. Deck is the latest member of that must-have club, a new jailbreak tweak that adds a shortcut bar along the right side of your iPhone or iPod touch. Developed by SBCoders, the makers of ActionBoard, Deck is arguably a far superior alternative to the SBSettings tweak based on the sheer number of features and uses it has…

Some of the features and capabilities of Deck are…

  • Power shortcuts such as respring, reboot, power down, and lock the device
  • Quickly upload text to Pastie
  • Toggle the flashlight
  • Launch a music application of your choice (Music, Pandora, Spotify)
  • Launch App Switcher, Spotlight, Notification Center, Siri, Camera, and Wallpaper Settings
  • Quickly compose text messages, e-mails, tweets
  • Toggle Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode, Location Services, Bluetooth, Mute, and 3G (or “4G”) cellular data
  • Create up to six application shortcuts

Deck is a paid tweak that costs $1.99 from the Cydia Store under the ModMyi repository. Deck does not currently support the iPad. For iPhone and iPod touch users, however, this tweak is definitely worth the money with its far better looking user interface than SBSettings that could even pass as a native feature of iOS.
