Spore Jailbreak Tweak for iPhone – How it Works?
As mentioned above, the hidden apps come under the purview of Hidden Space. You can access the Hidden Space by simply a pinch gesture on your iOS device’s home screen. When inside the Hidden Space, the + is for adding more apps and x is for exiting from the space. As you have seen it above in the tweak’s preferences, based on what you have set up, prior to opening up the Hidden Space, your device will ask you to enter the native/custom passcode or provide a biometric authentication.
