MultiFl0w is a new application that brings multitasking to the iPhone. MultiFl0w is not really an app per say, it’s more of a mod that gives a nice UI to Backgrounder, the application that lets your run apps in the background.

I’m still in Australia with limited internet connection and I’d love to try MultiFl0w for myself but, the lack of wifi and the poor 3G signal won’t allow me to, so I am just here reading reviews of it.

My friend Patrick wrote a rave review of MultiFl0w that I suggest you to read for more info about this app. This is in short what Patrick has to say about MultiFl0w:

Multifl0w is easily the best multitasking experience I’ve seen for the iPhone.

In the meantime, here is a video demo of MultiFl0w in action.

MultiFl0w is available to jailbroken iPhones only. If you haven’t yet, that should give you yet another reason to jailbreak your iPhone. You can download MultiFlow from Cydia and Rock for $4.99 after a 10-day trial.

If unlike me you are able to download MultiFlow, please try it out and let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

  • From the video it looks nice, with a screenshot of the app.
    So it has potential, but I installed Kirikae, and I think it is better, first off, I disabled backgrounders hotkey and use Kirikae to administrate backgrounding.

    Basically I have defined in backrounder the apps that should always run in the background, Navigon, Spotify, and some others, to prevent them from closing if the phone rings.

    Then I assigned Kirikae to pop up if I push and hold the home button, this brings up a list of running apps, and I can slide out the apps I want to close, or tap to switch to it.
    This then also works as a backgrounder, since If I’m in an app that is not “Whitelisted” and I would like to background it, I just Push and hold and Kirikae pops up, and I either tap another app, or tap springboard, and the app is in the background.

    And Kirikaeis free. 🙂

    A combination of this app and Kirikae would be good, so copy the pre way of sliding an app of the screen to close it, then it will be nice.

    • I didn’t know about Kirikae until you mentioned it. I will have to check it out.
      Thank you

    I like backgrounder… I liked the sound of this app. Will look into Kirikae myself. Nice tip.

  • Herb

    you can’t close a running app which makes this pretty useless. Sure it looks good with the screenshots and all but it’s not worth the $4.99. i personally prefer krikae since it’s free and has more features.

    It crashes so often that make me to about uninstall it. The multifl0w should not charge $4.95, but 99 cent max or FREE because without backgrounder, it’s useless . Moreover, it’s should be in Alpha now & for testing period (then beta, rc1, rc2, final 😉 )

    I prefer Kirikae even though it’s harder to spell and pronounce. 

    Yes, MultiFlow *looks* nicer. Its show-one-at-time snapshots of each backgrounded app reminds one of a boiled down version of Vista’s alt-tab function. (Sorry Apple folk, I don’t speak Maceneese, so you’ll have to come up with your own simile.) 

    MultiFlow’s the one I’d keep handy if I intended to gee-wiz-ify my BlackBerry and Android friends with iPhonesruleyness, but Kir-whatever’s (already forgot how to spell it) all-in-one list is more practical, and K lets you kill tasks conveniently like a real task manager–and the price is right.

  • Multifl0w crashes harder than the titanic! o snap! seriously this mod crashes if you dont take your time for it to reallocate the layout before you close another app out. ..
