How AlternateControls 2 Works
Have you ever wanted to turn your iPhone into an Android device? If yes, then AlternateControls 2 is the tweak you need to install on your device.
AlternateControls 2 Cydia tweak brings the standard Android on-screen controls to iOS 10. It is developed by tweak developer Ian Burns.
These controls make navigating through the interface a breeze. This also protects the Home button from wear and tear. Here’s how the tweak looks like in action.
Here’s a list of all its features –
- Select icons from a pre-defined collection of 6 icon sets.
- You can add custom icons.
- Customize background and icon color.
- Activate the controls by swiping up from the bottom of the screen or through an Activator gesture.
AlternateControls 2 comes with a comprehensive Settings section. You can configure pretty much everything from there – interface, color, background, etc.
The tweak comes with its own set of icons that you can change according to your liking. These icons are more or less the same with subtle variations in graphic design.
This tweak also offers a host of other options for customizing the controls even more. The options given below are self-explanatory and even a casual user wouldn’t have trouble configuring them.
AlternateControls 2 is a great alternative for TouchBar Cydia tweak that was just released a while ago.
On the whole, it’s a step in the right direction for creating an Android setup for iOS 10.
