Shortcuts help you do something with less effort, significantly since they can be activated on a small device like the iPhone. iPhone users often use the native text app and may have to use the Text Replacement feature to replace the text. Therefore, it is a great advantage to make the most of iOS’ text replacement feature. But, the only problem is that you have trouble managing (add or remove) your text shortcuts by navigating to the Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement. Substia, the newly released and free jailbreak tweak by TitanD3v, makes the above process more accessible from anywhere on iOS. It also allows you to effectively set a text replacement shortcut from the text selection menu.
How to use Substia to text replacement?
All you have to do is, just
- Select a text that you want to replace
- Then, from the text selection menu, select Substia
- Next, enter the shortcut and phrase.
- Hit the Add button and done.
It’s simple and easy. It automatically replaces that word with whenever it’s typed out. Incredibly, according to the developer, it provides no option to configure because it utilizes iOS’ native text selection settings. Watch the video demonstration below.
Moreover, you can always visit Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement to manage any shortcuts you’ve set up with Substia tweak whenever you want to use it.
Those interested in experiencing Substia tweak can download it for free from TitanD3v’s repository via their favourite package manager. The Substia tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and iOS 14 devices except for iPads.
