Proswitcher for iPad

Proswitcher for iPad is now available in alpha release. Ryan Petrich, most likely my favorite jailbreak developer, just informed me that he made Proswitcher for iPad available to the general public instead of pushing the alpha to just a few users.

For those of you who don’t know Proswitcher, it is a great jailbreak app that gives a nice and simple UI to Backgrounder, the app that first brought multitasking to the iPhone.

You can get Proswitcher HD (or whatever it will be called) on your iPad by adding the following source to Cydia: http://rpetri.ch/repo.

Be warned! This is an alpha release which means it can be very buggy. As soon as I installed the app, my screen froze, I hard rebooted several times until the issue finally disappeared. Other than that, I haven’t had any issue.

I’m very excited to get Proswitcher on my iPad. That is one jailbreak app I was really missing.

Give it a try and tell us what you think.

Thanks to @MikeErickson for the tip.

    It works perfectly for me. I have not had any crashes or freezes. But of coarse I rebooted the device right after the download.

    Any plans on bringing this over to the android platform?

    never get a chance to test this myself but it looks very innovative for multitasking in the ipad
    ps. webOS-like, love it.

    Wow. I’m a jailbreak newbie, but this changes everything!!! I’m feeling like this is the whole reason I wanted a eTab. (Sorry, I still think iPad is a horrible name, am trying this one out). Ryan, you are genius!
