Jailbreak Tweak For iPhone, iPad Redirects An App Icon To Launch The App Of Your Choice

Over the years, app management has been greatly improved with the addition of folders and other features that make having lots of software installed on a device a breeze to access. Yet, don’t you wish there was a way to launch an app by tapping an icon but be redirected to an app of your choice instead? This is where this awesome jailbreak tweak comes in.

Still confused? Don’t worry, I was too at first. OpenOther+ allows users to assign a certain app icon to a completely different app, for efficiency’s sake. For example, if you use the TweetDeck app for your Twitter needs but you’d like to launch it by tapping the Twitter for iPhone shortcut instead, OpenOther+ makes it possible to do just that!

OpenOther+ doesn’t change the look and feel of the device, nor does it add any icon to the home screen: in fact, it’s completely invisible unless used. Making your own shortcuts, however, couldn’t be simpler: just press and hold any icon and tap on the one you plan to use  as shortcut, then simply navigate to the icon of the app you want to point your shortcut to and tap on it. That’s it.
