Unlock Your iOS Device With Gestures Using Genie

A couple of Days ago, I visited my Friend and Guess what, his BlackBerry Bold 5 Lock/Unlock button was out of shape and stopped functioning at all, we found a temporary solution by putting the Password, so we can wake it using any button and then put the password to unlock it, that was quite time taking and teasing too. I always hate to put Password on my Mobile too, but then again not all of us lives in a secure surrounding, a little mistake can expose all your data to others and especially when we have those relatives who only knows how to start a misunderstanding between family members.

In such cases, if you are not happy with the Password, because you have to put it again and again to unlock the device, yet you want your device to be safe from others, Genie can help you in this matter, Genie is a Jailbreak Tweak that allows you to unlock your device by completing the gesture you set for Unlocking, the settings in the app is simple and Straightforward and there is a Kill switch to disable the app whenever you like, without further ado, let’s see how we can install it.
