    I actually haven't used too much of Activator, though I love it.

    I have a triple click on the home button to remove all background apps (Remove BG).

    Double tap on the status bar pulls up Camera+.

    I have a couple of other tweaks in mind after reading this thread, though!

    Default What are your favorite Activator actions?

    Activator is my number 1 favorite app! Get things done in less steps and with such convenience:
    1. Slide in gesture from top right (anywhere): takes me to last use app (must have LastApp installed)
    2. Three finger spread (anywhere): opens switcher
    3. Three finger pinch (anywhere): brings me to springboard
    4. Hold status bar (home screen/springboard): sleeps the device
    5. Double tap status bar (home screen): respring
    6. Double tap left status bar (home screen): kills all tasks
    7. Double tap right status bar (home screen): lock screen

    Never need use the Home button and Sleep button anymore!

    Brightness Activator Action - I swipe the status bar left or right to change the brightness immediately everywhere I am on my iPhone and iPad. I think this is the quickest way to control the brightness.

    Volume Down (-) - press and hold to activate the torch - SpringFlash

    Default Re: What are your favorite Activator actions?

    Hey, here are my new activator assignments on iOS 7

    Anywhere
    • Double tap Statusbar --> Launch CC
      (Activatior has some problems with CC, so I also set an activator gesture to launch it)
    • Slide along screen right side (Drag bottom to top) --> Launch Switcher
      (I really didn't know about this gesture, I found it last week, it's really awesome)
    • Slide along screen right side (Drag top to bottom) --> Home button
    • Swipe on the right screen edge --> InstaLauncher
    • Hold volume up button --> Launch App: "OmniFocus"
    • Hold volume up button --> Launch App: "Drafts"
    • Tap and hold Statusbar - invoke a activator menu with sharing (write a message, write a mail etc.) and system actions (like respring, reboot, SB search etc.)
    • Swipe down the Statusbar with 2 finger --> Sleep button
      (Convenient way to turn device off)

    Homescreen
    • Pinch Homescreen --> Sleep button
      (Convenient way to turn device off)

    Others:
    • Turn Vibration off by unlocking and turn it on by locking the phone.
      You don't need vibration while using the phone

    Other Activator stuff
    You can activate/deactivate and toggle many things at once, so you can create "profiles", e.g. I have a "study" profile where I toggle the following things:
    • Wifi off
    • Data & 3G off
    • Vibration off
    • Autolock off
    • Do Not Disturb on
    • Launch "dict.cc" (dictionary for translations while studying)

    And I have other "profiles" which set the phone back after studying (as a example).

    Right now I'm only using Activator to swipe across the bottom of the screen to activate the app switcher. That combined with Virtual Home and I never need to press the Home button

    With AppQuit you can just quit the app you're in (as far as I know when I used it). The tweaks from iOS6 which allows you to remove/quit all apps from switcher aren't updated for iOS7. But there are some which lets you do this on iOS 7 by swiping while switcher is enabled.

    I recommend to use CCToggles, which allows you to assign a QuickLauch element in the Control Center to kill all apps. You can also decide if the running app and music app should be killed or not. CCToggles is a free tweak which actually lets you fully customize the Control Center, you can change the maximal number of toggles and QuickLaunches which should be shown and also the elements. You can also assign Activator actions and launch apps

    Ok, either use the Activator app or go open the Settings app and go to the Jailbreak tweak/app section and chose "Activator.

    There you can chose where your new assignment should work, you can chose Everywhere, homescreen, Lockscreen and in Apps.

    You can also create menus and more. Just go to "Everywhere" and there select a gesture.
    Search in the list for "Pinch", it's one of the springboard actions.
    The it will ask you what should happen, then select "Simulate Sleep button" or "lock device" in system actions.
    Leave the app and try it on your homescreen. It should lock your device now.

    If you still need help, then I can also create a step-by-step picture or video tutorial
