ActionBar adds Undo, Select, Paste actions to Keyboard


When you use the select all, copy, and paste feature on iOS a lot, you will find ActionBar as a very useful tweak that will enhance your keyboard experience. The tweak adds all those actions to the bottom of your keyboard for quick, one tap access. Recently ActionBar Reborn was released delivering support for Dopamine jailbreak on iOS 15.

What is ActionBar?

ActionBar is a powerful jailbreak tweak that enhances the functionality of the system keyboard on your iPhone or iPad. With ActionBar tweak, you can easily access useful actions like select, copy, cut, paste, and undo right from your keyboard, without having to open the popup menu. For rootless jailbreaks such as Fugu15 or Dopamine you can try ActionBar Reborn.

Once installed, you can customize ActionBar to suit your needs by adding the action buttons to the bottom of the keyboard or by replacing the predictive bar. If you have an older device, you can also enable the iPhone X Keyboard feature, which extends the keyboard to the bottom of the screen and adds the extra space. There is also a respring button to apply all changes.

ActionBar tweak was initially released as a paid package, but it is now available for everyone free of charge. While it does not offer a plethora of features, it still significantly enhances your typing experience. Each action button is designed to adapt its function based on the context, providing a seamless user experience. However, it is worth noting that there is currently no option to configure which functions are displayed, limiting its flexibility in that regard.
