Many of you may have had experience with a stock android phone and you may know that the stock android os, like google nexus which does not feature a home physical button have three navigation control touch buttons on the bottom of the screen. These navigation buttons are extremely helpfull for going back, home, multitasking and navigating through your android device. Unfortunately, iphone, ios lacks this feature. We only get a home button which is used for everything. Rather than three different buttons for back, home, recent apps. If you have ever been anoyed by this then i have a great cydia tweak that you will love. This cydia tweak will add ndroid like navigation controll touch buttons aka android navigation buttons to your ios and to your iphone . For iphone 4s screen size it may be a little annoying as the screen is a little less to cover the android navigation buttons but for iphone 5 and above devices it will work like a charm and for ipad this cydia tweak will be an eye candy.
