    One of the features of iOS that can sometimes take you by surprise while you're scrolling is the swipe-to-go-backwards and swipe-to-go-forwards gestures that are active in many of iOS' stock applications like Mobile Safari, Settings, and others.

    If you really dislike these gestures and want to disable them for good to prevent the accidental navigation that occurs when the device recognizes your scrolling as a gesture to go forward or backward, then check out a new free jailbreak tweak called Disable iOS Swipe Back by iOS developer PlatypusW.

    When installed, if you try to swipe to go back or forward in an application that is usually supported, nothing will happen and you will remain in the pane that you were in when you attempted the gesture. Instead, you will have to use the back button and/or forward button (where applicable) to move between panes.

    Disable iOS Swipe Back is compatible with both iOS 7 and iOS 8, and you can even configure the applications that you want to use the tweak with via the tweak's preferences pane in the Settings application:



    You can enable or disable the entire tweak on demand here, as well as disable the tweak for all applications, or simply pick the applications that you want the tweak disabled for.

    If you want to give Disable iOS Swipe Back a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: Disable iOS Swipe Back

    Requirements: iOS 7.0-8.1.2

    Why doesn't the Modmyi app have the swipe-to-go-backwards and swipe-to-go-forwards gestures?

    "How to use.." - my question is "Why should I use this tweak".
