There are many reasons as to why many people jailbreak their iDevices. But probably one of the most common reason is that it allows users to apply jailbreak tweaks into their iPhone or iPad in order to improve user experience or add new functionalities. Apple has no doubt created high quality iOS devices but they are in no way perfect. There are some features that users may find lacking or they simply find them to be unintuitive. This is when a jailbreak tweak comes in handy.
If you have been a long-time user of the iPhone, then you certainly know how fairly annoying it is to press another function or accidentally end the call while talking to someone. Yes it is only mildly annoying but not if it does happen quite often. Fortunately, there is a new jailbreak tweak that takes care of this particular issue.
Dialer Shield is a nice little jailbreak tweak that locks your iPhone screen whenever you take a call. This effectively prevents you from accidentally pressing a key with your cheek which sometimes ends the call. But what if you want to access the in-call menu functions? Dialer Shield implements a nifty bidirectional slider that allows the user to access the in-call menu. Slide it left in order to access the menu and simply slide it right to end the ongoing call.
The iPhone does have built-in proximity sensors that automatically disables the touchscreen whenever the device is brought near the face during the call. But issues and problems regarding the said sensors are quite common among iPhone 4 users.
So if you happen to be one of those who are having problems with their proximity sensors or you simply want a foolproof solution to accidental key presses during calls, then this jailbreak tweak is definitely for you.
Dialer Shield is available in Cydia for $1.49.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
