    I haven't been jailbroken for a while and I forget what I used to use activator for. How do you guys use it? At the moment I only have:

    On Lockscreen

    Home button double press: toggle play/pause
    Volume up short hold: next track
    Volume down short hold: previous track

    I only use it for certain apps/tweaks none of which have been updated for iOS 7 for, so i don't currently use it.

    1. Tapping the status bar while on springboard to lock the phone, this is so that i can avoid using the sleep/power button.
    2. Automatically turn off cellular data when i connect to wifi.

    I've got this too, and vice versa when I disconnect from wifi.

    Also slide along screen right, drag bottom to top - activate switcher

    swipe status bar to the left - simulate a press of the sleep button
    swipe status bar to the right - bring up the app switcher
    swipe off screen to the top - simulate a press of the home button
    enable/disable 3G when leaving/joining wifi networks
    double tap lockscreen clock - turn airplane mode on/off
    long hold home button - do nothing
    short hold of home screen status bar - bring up SBPower
    short hold of home button at lock screen - play/pause
    short hold of volume buttons at lock screen - prev/next track

    and probably some others

    I've pretty much jail broken every iPhone I've owned since gen 2. Never used activator until I saw this post. The auto cell data turn-off is awesome !!

    I have scheduled my iPad and iPhone to reboot and respringed during the middle of the night and as soon as the tweak to kill all apps in the background comes out (that does not require a confirmation to kill the apps) I will make a schedule for that too. Just learned about turning off cellar though, I'm going to add that too.

    2x tap status bar - lock phone
    Both volume buttons - safe mode boot
    Wifi On - Cell data Off
    Wifi Off - cell data On

    My fav setup is:
    Hold status bar: open iMessages
    Double tap status bar: open Favorites in Phone for quick calling
    Swipe left on SB: home button press
    Swipe right on SB: activate switcher

    This setup allows me to fully use my phone virtually without ever having to press the physical home button so that's why I like it.

    Hold Status Bar Right (Anywhere): BiteSMS Quick Compose
    Short Hold Home button (Anywhere): Camera
    PowerPlay tweak (on Lockscreen):
    Volume Up - next track
    Volume Down - previous track
    Volume Up and Down together - Play/Pause

    Swipe Right Status Bar (Anywhere): Do Not Disturb on
    Swipe Left Status Bar (Anywhere): Do Not Disturb off
    Short Hold Sleep Button (Anywhere): Flashlight

    Single Tap Right Status Bar (Anywhere) Hands-Free tweak, toggle on/off
    Slide in Gesture from Bottom (Anywhere): Home Button
    Lock/Unlock Device (Homescreen/Lockscreen): Home Button

    Hold Status Bar (Homescreen): Overboard tweak
    Hold Left Status Bar (Anywhere): Place Call (from Call Bar)

    Slide Out Gesture, Off Screen Bottom (Application): Scroll to Bottom
    Slide Out Gesture, Off Screen Top (Application): Scroll to Top

    Double Press Home Button (Anywhere): Virtual Assistant (SIRI)

    I don't use the WiFi options for turning cellular on/off. That's cool, but I already have Smart 3G + LTE which turns WiFi on when WiFi is found and cellular off and cellular on and WiFi off when there is no WiFi.

    I'm also using Zephyr and SwipeBack.

    Security feature...

    On the lock screen - long hold power button - do nothing (suppress original action). This keeps your phone from being shut off while locked :) this in combination with FlipControlCenter lock toggles like airplane and wifi helps in the event your phone is stolen.

    Great idea, thanks for the tip!

    On my iPhone 5:

    Long Press of Home button on lockscreen to unlock the phone. This makes it seem like you've got the fingerprint scanner.

    I don't use it at all.

    The only reason it's installed is because flipswitch requires it.

    I would like to use single tap and double tap on the status bar for new actions, but the existing behavior of scrolling certain apps to the top (safari, messages) is bugging me. Any way to turn off the auto-scrolling AND re-assign the status bar to other actions?

    Best advice I could give is set up some gestures to preserve your buttons.

    I have swipe status bar left for home button and swipe it right to lock device. Pretty slick.

    Have this on my iOS6 devices for quite a while.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work on iOS7 using CleverPin.
    With passcode either enabled or disabled in settings everything works fine, but it stops working when disabling the passcode with CleverPin.
    No such problem using CleverPin on iOS6.
    Anyone else?

    I just have a few for the status bar:

    Single tap: biteSMS QC (when it's implemented)

    Double tap: Home

    Hold: App switcher

    I'm using Virtual Home on my 5S, but it's difficult to do a screenshot at times now.

    Anyone using a good Activator gesture for screenshots?

    Is there an activator gesture to close all apps?
