    Default What is Activator?

    Hello. I'm new to the iPhone, a blackberry convert. I tried searching for this, however, couldn't find a specific answer. After jailbreaking my Verizon iPhone I now have a section called Activator in the settings department. Could someone please explain what exactly it is to me? It looks like custom keys/gestures for specific actions. Like double click the home button to launch the camera or something.... Am I viewing this correctly?

    Yes. For example I use double tapping the statusbar for SBSettings and short hold on the home button to kill all background apps in one shot. You can basically assign anything to a gesture
