ZoomIsBack! Cydia Tweak Allows You To Bring Back The Slide To Zoom Function In Camera.app

Do you miss the slide-to-zoom function, that was present in the iOS 4 Camera.app, after updating to the iOS 5 firmware? If you do, then you will be glad to know with the ZoomIsBack! Cydia tweak you can bring back this functionality while running the iOS 5 firmware.

After installing the ZoomIsBack! Cydia tweak you must simply double tap the screen while in the Camera.app and the slide-to-zoom function will return.

Note: This tweak does not add any icons to your SpringBoard, and has no configurable options.

You can find the ZoomIsBack! tweak through the BigBoss repo for FREE. Let us know what you think of ZoomIsBack! in the comments section below…

    Zoom was never gone! all you have to do is pinch the screen like you zoom on a webpage and the native camera app zoom appears. Thanks for the tweak but you don’t need it.

  2. this tweak sucks

  3. Yeah you are correct. The point of this tweak, however, was to no re-enable Zoom (as this is already enabled.. as you point out), but to bring back the old activation method for zoom!

    Your tweak is a waste of space. My 4s zoom’s perfectly on 5.0 ipsw. Why don’t you work on a button to easily put the phone on silent? my switch on the side is too hard to simply flick across Seems like a good tweak for to add to your useless collection ya retard.

  5. Hopefully, someone may release the instruction to edit the camera app to add the zoom like panorama photography. Since Apple has switched the iOS to modules, This method can be utilized to selectively add tweaks and options (I’m hoping notification center add ons) to iOS without jailbreaking it. I hope the boys can see the potential and seriously follow up with it.
