Cydia application developers use their expertise to exploit iPhone features to their limits. PhyScroll is one suchtweak designed for jailbroken devices that lets you control scrolling by both volume buttons and accelerometer. Since on your iPhone you can only use your fingers to scroll through pages, this new tweak comes as an interesting extension.

To download the app search Physcroll in Cydia search and download it for free. Once done head to stock iPhone settings to configure Physcroll first before you start using it.

First of all go to Activator and set a default activation method. In my case i had set double tapping status bar as an activation method and then you can configure PhyScroll from settings. Here you will have a Scroll mode section, two sliders for volume scroll size and accelerometer sensitivity respectively and a toggle button.

Under scroll section you can set the default scroll mode either as Accelerometer, volume buttons or both. In case you want to ask select the scroll mode every time you enable the tweak, you can switch on Scroll Selection toggle.

Now you are all set to use the tweak. Suppose you want to scroll a page that you are reading in Safari, just activate the tweak using the activation method and either use the volume buttons or the accelerometer tilt to scroll the page.

Some of the disappointing things about the same is that while you are scrolling the page using PhyScroll, you cannot touch the screen or else it gets disabled and you will have to enable it again.

Also the accelerometer scroll is quite not easy to use as the device needs to placed horizontally otherwise even the slightest of the tilts will start moving the page.

App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Conclusion: Wonderful job by the developer. Only disappointment is the accelerometer tilt scrolling
