    This tweak allows you to swipe from the left edge of the screen to the right to go back and from the right edge of the glass left to go forward.

    This is very useful for me as I am on an iPhone 5 and I am right handed so my thumb had to reach all the way across the screen to the top to hit the 'Back' button. This tweak makes it so much simpler. Only tried it out with whatsapp and it works flawlessly. Used with Auxo and Zephyr, navigation and multitasking is really intuitive and button-free :D

    SwipeBack is by Ryan Petrich and is available for free from Cydia. Tested and working on iPhone 5, 6.1. Here is the idownloadblog link on the tweak.

    It hooks to the back button on MasterDetailApplications.
    This is possible because the views are saved in an array, and the back button is generated (not programmed by the creator of the app).

    I just suplement this information, so people will know when the swipe back is useable, and why its awesome.

    I wish I could dissable the swipe forward, as its somewhat buggy, this is because the iOS SDK never intended it to be fully functional.

    Isn't it possible to accidentally go back to a previous screen when all you want is to swipe back a horizontal scroll list in the App store? There are other apps where horizontal swiping is used for other functions.

    Would be great if you could enable it only for Safari, for example.

    It works fine, it distingues between siwpe left or right and swipe from the edge.

    For scrolling through the search 'cards'?

    It doesn't go back if you don't swipe from the edge.

    You can disable the function in any app you want from Settings.
