Shortmoji tweak offers the ability to add up to 6 different views to each keyboard area. These views include Emojis, Shortcuts, Emojis + Shortcuts, Numbers, Prediction Bar + AutoFill Passwords, and Custom Texts. Switch between the views using a swipe twice up gesture.

Each view has its own settings and configurations, with the Shortcuts view being the most useful, offering over 1800 shortcuts to choose from, including Activator. There is also an option to replace the actions (tap, double tap, and long press) of dictation or emoji icons.

The tweak is packed with dozens of actions to pick from, including enabling airplane mode, Bluetooth, flashlight, and lowercase. You can even define actions for tap, double-tap, and long-press actions on the Globe/Emoji and Dictation buttons available on the keyboard.

The keyboard tweak offers support for third-party tweaks such as Tranzlo, Copypasta, CopyLog, Wasabi, Translomatic, and Pasithea. With Shortmoji, you can import, export, and share your settings with friends and has support for Activator Actions and Filpswitch toggles.
