In our journey to find simple yet useful tweaks on Cydia for your jailbroken apple device we have come across another milestone. Flipover, an app available for free on Cydia is an alternative to lock your device and put it on silent mode.

You must be wondering that again, like other apps, you will have to tap somewhere on the screen or activate the app whenever you have to enable the feature. But interestingly the app does not have any such activation method and it becomes active when you place your iPhone face down.

Oh yes its true. With this app you would not have to use the physical button to mute the device or press the power button to lock it. To perform any of the above action, just put it on a surface with its face down and with the help of proximity sensor it will do as advertised.

Search for Flipover on Cydia and download it.


After installing it, navigate to stock iphone settings and look for Flipover.


Open FlipOver and configure it as you like. Here you can enable both Lock and Mute actions when placed face down. Automatic unlock can also be set here, with which the app will automatically unlock when lifted.
