    If you're a fan of Apple's Reachability feature in iOS 8 on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but you want it to be a little more customizable, then you'll enjoy a new free jailbreak tweak called ForceReach by iOS developer PoomSmart.

    With ForceReach, you'll find a new preferences pane in the Settings application where you can configure Reachability to your liking:



    Among the options that ForceReach gives you, you'll find the ability to enable Reachability in any orientation (landscape or portrait), the ability to enable unlimited open time so that it doesn't automatically dismiss itself after a period of time, and the ability to use Reachability in just about any part of iOS 8 imaginable.

    ForceReach may be useful for those of you that use landscape orientation often to perform tasks, or if you don't want the feature automatically closing out if you don't do anything after a specific period of time.

    If you want to give ForceReach a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 8 and a Reachability-enabled device, are required for the installation.

    Name: ForceReach
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: PoomSmart
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    For those of us still on iOS 7, what does this iOS 8 feature do?

    Oh the prior article describes it.

    Reachability is pretty dope and helpful on this 6+. Looking forward to tweaking it's functionality once I'm jailbroken and have this tweak.

    Ok so what does reachability do by default? I have a jailbroken 128gb 6+ and I'd just like to know what this does as I guess I'm missing a feature...

    It drops the screen down a little bit so you can access the top of the screen with one hand.

    Weird, I'll have to look into it as I'm unable to figure out what it's doing or how.
