Most iPhone and iPad users depend on iOS’ native App Switcher for fast-paced app-to-app multitasking, but if you wanted something a small amount less intrusive (and even perhaps more aesthetically pleasing), then you would possibly enjoy a newly released jailbreak tweak called Switcher by iOS developer Neo Ighodaro.
As depicted within the screenshot examples above, Switcher puts a flexible application-switching drawer at the sting of your display which will be shown or hidden on-demand with nothing over an easy slide gesture from the sting of the screen.
In standby mode, Switcher nearly disappears from sight except for a semi-transparent grabber at the sting of the display. When you’re able to use Switcher, however, you’ll be able to pull on the grabber to summon one or double-columned app drawer stuffed with either your favorite or recently used applications. The tweak’s different states are shown below:
Once installed, you’ll find a fanatical preference pane within the Settings app where you’ll be able to configure Switcher to your liking:
Here, you’ll be able to:
- Toggle Switcher on or off on demand
- Choose your preferred position on the screen for the slider/drawer:
- Hide the interface when snapping screenshots
- Active the interface with a gesture
- Choose between favorite or recent apps
- Configure four or eight favorite apps
- Enable or disable the second column for eight apps
- The developer includes a Save button at the top-right of the preference pane that allows you to save any changes you
- create on-demand.
Obviously, you may just use your App Switcher to use recently used apps, so it comes all the way down to what interface you prefer more therein respect. The Switcher tweak, however, allows you to save lots of favorite apps, which can be useful in a very pinch. The interface is often invoked from anywhere in iOS, apart from the Lock screen for security reasons.
If you’re inquisitive about trying Switcher, then you’ll be able to purchase it for $1.99 from the Packix repository via your preferred package manager. people who already own Jumper can save 50% off the sale price and acquire Switcher for $0.99. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 11, 12, and 13 devices.
