One of the useful features of the Mail app is that it allows you to pull down the mails list to refresh it and load new mails. Such a feature is inherent in other third-party apps as well including Whatsapp. SafariRefresh is one of those Cydia tweaks that ports the pull to refresh feature to the stock Safari app.
Normally, you can refresh a page in Safari by tapping on the round arrow in the URL bar. Although it’s not a hard task, it might be difficult to reach it when using a larger device such as the new iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus.
This is where SafariRefresh comes in to save your day. The tweak adds a pull to refresh feature to Safari so that you can pull down a webpage to refresh it right away without having to reach to the top of the screen to do so. You’ll definitely find it more convenient on devices with a larger screen.
With that said, the tweak comes with absolutely zero configuration to make. Upon installing and respringing your device, launch the Safari app, go to a webpage and simply pull it down and release to refresh it immediately.
I definitely recommend that you give this tweak a try especially if you own the larger iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s one of those Cydia tweaks that you’ll probably use on a daily basis.
Best of all, SafariRefresh is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free of charge and supports iOS 8 devices. What do you think of this Cydia tweak? Is it worth the try? Sound off in the comments section below.
