FingerTouch lets you assign gestures to the Touch ID sensor
Lots of jailbroken iPhone owners will tell you that it's never a bad idea to have more gestures. After all, that's the whole basis behind the popular Activator extension, which gives you more ways to interact with your device to perform actions.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed FingerTouch by Michele Primavera, on the other hand, makes use of the same Touch ID sensor that you use every single day to unlock your device and make App Store purchases to create even more gestures.
I have to say that I have a lot of respect for the Touch ID sensor, mostly because in addition to a fingerprint scanner and a button (on some iPhones), it's also a tiny, round touch-sensitive surface. This means it's smart enough to know when you're tapping on it, which is particularly how you open the Reachability interface in the first place.
FingerTouch takes advantage of this by letting you assign different Touch ID button-based tap gestures to different actions. Out of the box, the tweak lets you use the following gestures:
